Thinking of goals for 2018:
  • Lose 20 lbs
  • Develop a rain catch system that is easily stored and easily deployed
  • Help my wife get CPR/AED/First Aid trained(renewed)
  • Encourage 3 other people into prepping 
  • Read at least one book on preppering/survival 
  • Increase our emergency food supply stores by one week
  • Increase our emergency cash by 25%
  • Buy at lest 1 new gun (ok, I would do that anyway)
  • Read through the New Testament in an year (working on getting physically, mentally, and spiritually prepared if something would occur) 
  • Try to locate 2 water sources within 5 miles of the house that I don't know about
  • Try to shot 1 IDPA match a month 
I think this might be a good start

quick water storage.... water bladder in 30 to 300 galls, would work for rain if set up

Thanks for the idea about the water bladder.

I was thinking of 4-trash cans (can get them for less than $100 total) that would be easy to store in the garage and would only be used for water storage. They could be placed under the gutter spots like the old fashion rain barrels. 

Living in the Midwest we get lots of rain and I have lots of water sources in the area. I just thought it would be nice to have one more choice if the need arises.

Got my wife's minivan squared away.  She doesn't drive anymore so I've been using it to go back and forth to work.  That way I can save the miles/warranty on my new car.  It doesn't get the mileage of course that my small SUV gets, but I think in the long run saving the miles on my car will pay off.  I have the extended warranty and I'd like to get as much out of that as possible.

Made it to Aldis today, I bought the normal two week supply of canned goods that the wife had on the list, then I tossed in an additional weeks worth. Picked up some canned ham to add to the stores. So working on increasing the food supplies by a week with the food we eat.
