Hi I'm Mama Bear,
I am relatively new to formal prepping, but kinda have always been a petite prepper. I originally hail from the great NW. Preps have seen myself and family through tornadoes, blizzards, gales, and prolonged power outages as a child. Now as a mother, I prep like my parents did for me--though I am doing it on much larger scale.
I do need a bit of guidance though, Perhaps the community can help? I prep my home so my husband and babies will be well taken care of in petite-SHTF or grande-SHTF event. I am struggling on how to prep my car for a 30 day period away from home for myself. I already have a 72 hrs BOB in my car. The challenge is that I work as an Emergency Room RN, so in the event of a SHTF event occurs, I cannot nor could I morally do so, abandon my pts or my community when needed.
I am sort of treating my SUV as if it were a desert location. I am near the ocean but not near fresh water. I carry a flat of bottled water plus and extra 3 gallons of water in my car at all times. I imagine that will not last though. I think I can double boil sea water and capture the steam for fresh water and then run it through a filter? Thoughts?
For food I have MREs, datex bars, and some dehydrated food. I am not really counting on the hospital to have a sufficient supply. I also have some vitamins
Sanitation: Ideas please. Prep for this or hope the hospital has a means to manage waste?
Security: No measures as of yet. Cannot bring firearms to the hosp. I am think maybe some pepperspray?
I welcome any feedback and look forward to reading the posts.
