Essential Gear:

 WATER

Store water away today. And prepare to make clean water tomorrow. NOTHING is more essential.

The water basics
For fear of overstating how important water is... Well, ever read Dune? It is all around us normally, of course, in a way that means we don't think about it. But the first time you turn on the tap and nothing comes out, it's terrifying, a reverberation of olden times. Where are you going to get water? Just look at  Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. Residents were drinking out of polluted puddles, desperate. 

 

So, more than anything, figuring out water solutions NOW is essential. It's one of those things in which a little planning — and buying the right gear — will make all the difference.

 

The approach is actually simple, and two-pronged:

 

Store water away — and prepare to make clean water tomorrow

 

As such, the things you need pretty much fall into two categories:

 

  1. Things to store your water in.

  2. Things that can make dirty water drinkable.

 

Simple enough, right?
