The Survival Guide

Any useful information in any form is acceptable here. From bugout bags to survival in the darkest back streets of big cities. From navigating the dark side of the internet to making improvised snorks for hidding in shallow waters. Consider this reddit the hitchhiker's guide to the known world.

Feel free to crosspost from any survival reddit, or from any reddit you think might give The Survival Guide's readers an edge in life.

Anything goes, I will not remove submissions as long as OP ties it to the Guide's theme..

Thank you all.

Make sure to check your stores and clean them on a regular basis

I know there's a bit of survival related stuff that pitches having food stores and such for a survival situation. But I found that slime mold can pretty much eat its way into any container if left unchecked long enough. (Even plastics and cans, it can dissolve or rust through just enough to get at whatever is inside.) So if you see anything that even seems remotely sticky or fuzzy during a periodic check make sure no containers are leaking or falling apart, and clean up everything around that spot too.

Just a head's up - because I had to clear out a large part of a pantry from that stuff. It'd really suck if you had a good part of your stash wiped out from that kind of thing - if you're in a situation where you really needed it.

Can a ram pump work when installed at a riverbed?

Hello people,
I have looked at a number of ram pump videos on YouTube and I want to build one. The one thing that all of the guides state however is that you should have a vertical head fall from 1m and above.
However, the riverbed where I want to install the ram Pump is relatively very flat with no significant head drops along the way. The only way I think is to anchor the ram in the middle of the river that is roughly 1.5m deep.

Can it work with flowing surface water that doesn't have a high falling head?

Top tips for the wanderer trailer life.

I'm moving into my 5th wheel in a few weeks and hitting the road. I've never used it before and haven't been camping in years. Any advice whether it be practical or personal is appreciated! I'm just putting together supplies!

For those who want to be better with their environmental impact, you should check out /r/ZeroWaste where we discuss more ways of being environmentally conscious!

Full disclosure: I am a moderator of /r/ZeroWaste.

I believe that /r/ZeroWaste is a great community for exploring deeper into ways of reducing your waste and your footprint on the world. Much of the content posted helps people live more sustainably and less reliant on industrial practices.

The sidebar description:

Being "zero waste" means that we adopt steps towards reducing personal waste and minimizing environmental impact. The zero waste ideal is to send nothing to landfills or high-temperature incineration facilities and to prevent unnecessary pollution and the squandering of nonrenewable resources.

This community is for those who are interested in living a low- or zero-waste lifestyle. There is a major focus on the "5 R's", being refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, and rot. We follow this by reducing consumption, choosing reusable and sustainably-produced goods, promoting recycling and composting, and encouraging each other in our attempts to live more sustainably.

It is still a smaller subreddit (but has grown significantly in the last year!) and has plenty of insightful discussions and ideas.

You should take a look!
