  1. Great idea. Thank you for all your prepping ideas. We are in the path of hurricane Dorian so we didn’t have to go crazy getting supplies because we already have them. Just the last minute things. We already gassed up the cars and got some fresh fruits and veggies yesterday. Went to Walmart today and not a bottle of water of any size or shape available. We don’t need any cause we already have water. I looked just for curiosity sake. Got a few more items and we have the rest already. We also have our wooden boards if we need to cover the windows. We save them from year to year. All these things really save time and money. Staying prepared as much as we can ahead of time!! Thank you again for all the tips!! God bless and please keep us in your prayers!! Thanks!

  2. Brilliant AG. Several would fit in a small space and be nearly weightless. Maybe in a small net bag hung by carabiner off a molle loop on the back of a backpack. Great stuff AG. Love all the videos. K

  3. Thank you for your video.
    I discovered by accident that one can "shrink" a PET plastic bottle with boiling water, … Everything seems to shrink to a "standard", except the screw top, and you end up with a "mini me" of the original bottle. EXCEPT! It's now thicker, stronger, although smaller, … lol Doesn't fold up either but could hang from your bag or belt.
    Seriously, give it a try, what are you out? Some hot water? … I think I used a funnel, … just saying.
    The new strength and thickness of the shrunk bottle would make it last a lot longer than an un-shrunk one, IMHO. The ability to survive a poke or a fall and last a while would be nice, if you needed that I mean.
    Oh yeah, I was trying to make a hot water bottle for some chicks I was picking up, … I thought that PET plastic bottle wrapped in a towel and filled with boiling water would be perfect, …. and it was, it was just shrunk.
    Have a great one.
