    changed, but one thing hasn't: the importance of knives in
    survival! Here are the best military and survival knives.

    drinking, cooking, washing and flushing when you know water
    will be in short supply. Water stored in an open bathtub,
    with dirt, soap film and exposure to debris will spoil and

    surge can interrupt or even contaminate your water supply. It
    is during these conditions the waterBOB may be used for

    started prepping for your dog.
