Tax Refund
How to spend your money Prepping

Are you a prepper expecting a tax refund on April 15? If you have some extra money
to spend prepping, then take a look at the cool things prepper money can buy:

Fun ways a Prepper Could Spend Their Tax Refund:

#1: Night Vision Goggles.
Night-vision goggles are the ultimate prepper luxury gadget! Imagine the defense
possibilities to track intruders or picture yourself hunting at night to gain the
advantage. The Yukon Tracker head-mounted night vision binoculars, pictured
above, provide remarkably detailed downrange observation under the darkness of
night.  These goggles have a built-in pulse infrared illuminator, which expands
viewing range while minimizing battery drainage. This pulsing is invisible to the
human eye and yet gives you a maximum possible infrared visibility. Wear them with
your glasses, but they're more effective if you wear contacts.

#2: Montague Paratrooper Folding Mountain Bike.
Cammy green tough, rugged, and ready for anything, this mountain bike is dropped
from the sky to land, prepared for action. The speed of unfolding this bike for riding
will blow you away. Mountain Montague Paratrooper Folding Mountain Bike, pictured
at the top left-hand of the page is unlike all other folding bikes, there are no wobbly
hinges. Just open one quick release lever on the top tube and remove the front
wheel. It folds in under thirty seconds without tools, too! This full-sized, rugged
mountain bike is deployable on almost any terrain. It is a stealth/minimal signature
that is second only to a walking soldier.

# 3: Generator.
Don't already have a generator? Perhaps the most important single item in your
survival expenditures if you live in cold climates, buying the right generator your
family needs is easy with this
prepper's guide to buying a generator.

  • Quiet Solar Generator: A quiet generator is an ultimate luxury for a prepper.
    The Goal Zero Yeti 150 with Nomad 20, a quiet, portable power for base
    camp, cabins and unexpected outages. What's more, the Goal Zero Yeti 400
    Solar Generator allows you to live life off the grid, camp in luxury, or power
    through an outage without the noise and fumes of traditional back-up
    generators. Kit Includes Yeti 150 Solar Generator and Nomad 20 Solar Panel,
    pictured right in yellow.

#4. Surewater 260 Gallon Water Storage Tank.
Water is life and as a matter of survival, a family of four needs 270 gallons of water,
according to Utah State University A three-month supply of water is 90 gallons of
water per person.  The standard size for a residential water heater is only 40 or 50
gallons, which is not nearly enough. The SureWater 260 Gallon Water Storage Tank,
pictured immediate right, stores 260 gallons of water, about enough for a family of
four to last three months. A luxury yes, but among the top prepper necessities!

#5: NukAlert-ER Radiation Detector/Dosimeter/Geiger Counter.
Pictured at the top of the page, NukAlert-ER Radiation detector measures radiation
in food, water, puddles, your roof, clothing, air filters, all around your home and car.
This is a supreme "click-click click" Geiger counter that reads high levels of Gamma
radiation from nuclear weapon fallout or nuclear plant emergencies. These are the
high levels that will kill you in hours or days, while most 'mircroRad' meters limit out
on high radiation readings and even give you a ZERO reading if the levels are too
high! If you're a prepper who's going to buy a Geiger counter, this is the one to own.

#6: Solar Refrigerator.
It almost seems like an oxymoron to use the word "solar" with refrigerator and
indeed it is amazing. The Sundanzer solar refrigerator, pictured immediate left,
provides exceptionally low energy consumption, requiring less expensive power
systems and providing lower operating costs. It runs on an 80-Watt solar panel,
110 Ah battery and 15 Amp charge controller. Indeed a prepper luxury, but
completely necessary in a modern off grid lifestyle.

#7: Treadle Powered Sewing Machine.
The Janome 712T treadle sewing machine, pictured immediate right, allows you to
sew with no electrical power. Now you don't need to find one at the thrift market or
antique store! Now that would come in handy after an
Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP)!

#8. Excalibur Deluxe Dehydrator.
An Excalibur 9 tray dehydrator is a good way to spend a couple of hundred bucks.
Any dehydrator will dry food, but an Excalibur dries safer, better, and faster than
competitors thanks to Excalibur's patented Hyperwave Fluctuation technology.
Ordinary dehydrators produce constant, unchanging heat, which can cause"case
hardening," and they create a dry surface with moisture trapped inside – the perfect
environment for yeast, mold and bacteria growth! With the Excalibur Hyperwave
Fluctuation technology, the temperature fluctuates up and down to prevent this
from happening. When the air temperature fluctuates up, the food's surface
moisture evaporates; then, when the air temperature fluctuates down, the inner
moisture moves to the drier surface. This keeps the food temperature low enough
to keep the enzymes active, but the air temperature gets high enough to dry food
and overcome yeast, mold, and spoilage.

#9. Ultralight sleeping bag.
Bugout in a better sleeping bag. The Nemo Rhythm 25 Primaloft Sleeping Bag,
pictured left, is unlike conventional mummy shapes. Nemo's SpoonTM Shape
backpacking bags give you extra space where it matters most. Wide in the elbows,
the bag tapers down to the hips then gently flares back out to allow room for your
knees to naturally bend and shift throughout the night. This innovative bag profile
offers true sleeping comfort while maintaining thermal efficiency and low weight. It's
worth every penny.  

#9: Composting toilet.
When SHTF, you can do something with it! The Nature's Head Composting Toilet,
pictured immediate right is a reliable choice for portable, self contained, urine
separating dry toilets on the water, on the land, or on the road." "This toilet or
head, (the marine term for toilet) was designed by two long time sailors who sought
to create a more user friendly version than anything else on the market. While we
designed our product to withstand the harsh marine environment, it can be used
anywhere you need a toilet, especially anywhere that plumbing or electricity is
difficult or non-existent -- on RVs or campers, in vacation cabins, workshops, barns,
yurts, even trucks. Most importantly, this toilet doesn't have the foul odors
associated with all other holding tank systems. The low volume air circulation fan
built into the head provides the added benefit of recycling the air in your bathroom
which helps make your whole environment smell better. Because it was originally
designed for marine use, its rugged design and materials (all stainless hardware) it
has been proven to be extremely durable no matter what your environment.

#10: Barnett Jackal Crossbow Package.
Offering an innovative design, the Barnett Jackal crossbow features a sleek, military-
style stock with a divided fore grip for comfortable hand placement. Ready to shoot
right out of the box, this package includes a quick-detach quiver, bolts, and a
premium red dot sight. The quad limb assembly is combined with high energy
wheels and a synthetic string and cable system producing arrow speeds of 315 feet
per second. The combination of the lightweight stock and the power this bow
delivers makes it a devastating weapon for any hunter, and this one is
Made in the

#11: Cammenga "417 Official l U.S. Military Compass.
The Commenga official U.S. Military Tritium Lensatic Compass Model 3H, pictured
immediate left, is equipped with a magnifying lens, sight wire,  and dial graduations
in both degrees and mils. Around $60,t his is the best compass money can buy. The
copper induction dampening system slows the rotation of the magnet without the
use of liquids. This carries the 3H stamp. It is GSA compliant and
made in the U.S.A.

#12: Fully Stocked GI Medical Kit.
Helpful in administering first aid for reduction of bleeding and stabilization of
wounds, the fully stocked medical kit, pictured immediate left, goes well beyond a
standard household emergency. This pack is intended for preppers because it is a
genuine, front line combat ready, medic kit (and cheaper than trying to buy
individual components). As one prepper purchaser confides, "Throw in some
QuickClot, Israeli bandages, an aluminum splint, some chest seals, and a dental kit
and you are ready for almost anything!"

#13: Big Berkey Water Filtration System.
Get the fluoride out of your water and enjoy the purest water possible with the Big
Berkey Water filtration system now.  This powerful system purifies both treated
water and untreated raw water from such sources as remote lakes, streams,
stagnant ponds and water supplies in foreign countries, where regulations may be
substandard at best. Use it today, use it when the stuff hits the fan. The Big Berkey
system removes pathogenic bacteria, cysts and parasites entirely and extracts
harmful chemicals such as herbicides, pesticides, VOCs, organic solvents, radon 222
and trihalomethanes.  It also reduces nitrates, nitrites and unhealthy minerals such
as lead and mercury.

#14:  Ranger Rescue Entry Tool.
The best you can get, the Ranger Rescue Entry Tool, pictured right, can be used as
an axe, prybar, hydrant wrench, gas shut off and spanner wrench (2 1/2" hoses and
water mains). This tool is a necessity for all emergency and rescue professionals,
and a luxury for preppers.

#15: Steam Distiller - Pure Water
A steam distiller takes ocean water and makes pure, rain water! The Pure Water
Steam Distiller, pictured immediate right, is a compact, portable distiller with a
removable boiling chamber allowing for easy filling and cleaning. With a capacity of
approximately 3 liters per three and one-half hour cycle, this manually filled distiller
is  perfect for use in a camper or RV. In continuous self-sterilization when in
operation, this steam distiller is equipped with a removable boiling tank for easy
filling and cleaning. A safety shutoff switch turns the unit off should it ever overheat.
The unit stores neatly on a countertop for your convenience, but while in operation,
the top should be clear of any obstruction to allow for proper air circulation. Each
Pure Water distiller is complete with purity vents to allow the organic and inorganic
compounds to escape.

#16: Year's Supply of food
Owning a year's supply of freeze dried food will put your mind at ease. No one says
you have to eat it for an entire year. The idea the food will stretch the supplies you
have and help you get through winter.
