Prepping for Full Time Outdoor or Mostly Outdoor Living

You may not ever need to commit to living outdoors/off the grid or without power and running water full time, for the long haul, but if you prepare for that, you'll also be prepared for the inevitable short term periods of power, water, or gas outages, which can be caused by any number of things, and will also be prepared for worst case.  
This post will most likely be edited plenty, over time, but it's good enough to post as-is, for now. 
A few things to keep in mind right off the bat
  • Being prepared beforehand, all the time, is always key! 
  • This means always having certain things on hand, and USING them regularly.
  • The time to find or learn to use your gear is NOT when you need it most!

If you don't already have it, start building up a full complement of good, rugged camping gear. You don't have to break the bank, and it doesn't have to be expensive stuff. LOTS of what you need can be found second hand, or for cheap at discount stores. Good doesn't have to mean expensive.

There are a few basic necessities which we all need for survival, and a few more that make surviving FAR more pleasant.

Shelter/Protection From Elements

If you're bugging in, you already have basic shelter, so you just need to take steps to make it as secure from the elements and other hazards as possible. If you already have measures in place to block or take advantage of the sun, cold, wind, etc, perhaps to save on your electric bill - things like solar panels, blackout shades, vent turbines, or similar, you're already mostly set in this area. If not, there are simple things you can do, like sealing around windows and unused doors with plastic and tape, to keep out the cold and wind, insulated curtains to keep out cold or heat, and blackout panels (purpose built or DIY) to keep out heat and/or block inside light from showing outside. You can tape foil or mylar sheeting to the windows facing, out, and further insulate with cardboard, newspaper, foam, extra blankets, or whatever else is handy to get similar effects to the ready made blackout panels/curtains. I'm not going to go into further detail on these options, but I'll likely eventually add posts further detailing them, and, in the meantime, you can easily do an internet search on any of the above and learn more.

If you're bugging out to a location that doesn't already have established shelter, unless you are in a very mild climate, you'll want to make setting that up your very first priority, before food, fire, or even water. Even if you're in a mild or moderate area, you'll still want to at the very least have a tarp or something to shield from rain and condensation (dew).

The nicest thing, short of actually constructing some sort of building, is going to be a large tent that is big enough to stand up in, and has space for cots or double high air mattresses and maybe a small table and camp chair (coolers also make good seating or side tables), but start with whatever you can afford and fit in your vehicle (or wagon or carry with you, if walking). Most of my regular camping supplies live in my primary vehicle, full time, except when in use, and that has been the case as long as I've been driving. That means that even if I had to get out of my house RIGHT NOW, with no time to grab anything not right at hand, and drive away, I would have all my basic needs met rather comfortably for quite some time. I have a big ol' van now, so have upgraded some things, because I can, but even with a compact car, you can fit a lot if you plan and pack well.

Even a tiny tube tent, hammock tent, tarp lean to, debris shelter, or just a bivvy sack is better than no shelter at all, so start with bare basics in every category, and then upgrade as you can based on your priorities and specific needs.


The general standard for survival situations is at least one gallon per person, per day of water for drinking and absolutely necessary sanitation. That is not allowing for any real measure of comfort or anything else beyond not dying before rescue or resumption of services, and is based on staying put and not exerting yourself any more than absolutely necessary. That isn't something that you will be able to maintain more than a few days without some serious consequences.

This means you should really keep a bare minimum of five gallons of potable water (per person) in a sealed container at all times. More is better. Water containers are cheap and don't take up that much room. You can use plain old tap water if you are on municipal supply in most places. I recommend a lot more than that, and rotating by routinely using what you have in containers (get the ones with spigots, like this - they stack well and are almost as convenient as a regular sink) and refilling them, to keep it fresher. The collapsible containers are good to have on hand too, but are better for shorter term storage and use.

Conserve water by reusing as much as you can. Use the same water you used for boiling veggies for other cooking. Collect water in a bucket or pot under your handwashing station to pre-wash your dishes or to wash clothing. Use the last batch of rinse water for the next batch of wash water. Dip cleaning cloths into a container of water, instead of using "running" water, etc. Look for an upcoming post solely dedicated to conserving water in a SHTF situation. It will be linked here once it is finished, and some of the longer portions of this post (cleaning stuff, mostly) will be moved there.

If you have to bug out, a roof rack on your vehicle is a really good place for those water containers (and lots of other things), so if you don't have a roof rack already, install one! It nearly doubles your vehicle's storage and hauling space. It may not look sleek or cool, but you'll be glad you did the first time you put it to good use, whether in a bug out situation, or just hauling home something big and bulky. I'll get into larger filtration and purification systems in other post(s) as well, but you should also already have some kind of emergency filter system, like a Mini Sawyer System, Lifestraw, Seychelle bottle, etc. If you don't, get at least one. Do it now! Don't wait!

Fire, Food, and Cooking

You're going to need a way to heat water for drinking, cooking, and cleaning, and to cook food. That means some kind of fire. There are LOTS of options available, like propane, butane, charcoal, alcohol, chemical tablets, etc, and I'll address that in another post, all about outdoor kitchens and emergency cooking, but you should still know how to build and use the oldest and most basic - a campfire. 

If you don't know how to build a proper fire, LEARN NOW!!
Seriously. Start with dry/cured wood, ideal tinder and kindling, and actual matches or lighter, then go from there to learn with less favourable conditions. Learn to do it with no additional accelerants, and minimal matches or lighter use. If the lighter gets too hot, you're taking too long. Everyone in my girl scout troop learned to make a one match fire (as in, laying a proper fire setup with tinder, kindling, and initial fuel and having a full on campfire going from that, using only one match, with no accelerants) within a single 4 day weekend, decades before Google or YouTube. If a bunch of 8 and 9 year olds can do it, so can you!! There are a lot of really good bush-craft channels on YouTube that will show you dozens of efficient ways to build a good fire. They all involve proper use of tinder, kindling, fuel, and airflow, but, from there, lots of options. Go do some searching, and then follow up with practising. 

Your fire can also enable you to use hot water bottles or heated bricks/rocks to help stay warm at night.

*Note: Wet/river rocks should be heated very slowly, at the edges of the fire until they are totally dry, or they can explode.
Exploding rock shards hurt!

Make sure you have at least a couple of basic, fire safe cooking pots/pans. I highly recommend using cast iron for most cooking and always having a stainless steel or aluminium kettle/coffee pot on hand anyway, for many reasons, but even if you aren't ready to do that, make sure you have a cast iron Dutch oven and good sized skillet (if they are both the same diameter, the lid will be interchangeable), and a pot or kettle for boiling water.  

Start using and cooking the most perishable foods in your refrigerator first. If the power is out more than 24 hours, you'll end up having to toss a lot of what you don't use up before it spoils, unless it's cold enough outside to keep foods cold. Meats will generally stay good a little longer if you cook them. Fresh veggies last longer raw. 

Don't open your fridge or freezer more than once a day, and keep coolers in the shade and/or under a reflective tarp if it's warm weather.

Most foods in a well stocked freezer should be safe for 72 hours, but you'll need to cook and re-freeze or use stuff pretty soon. 

Smoking, curing, and dehydrating foods can preserve them for longer.

A multi-fuel generator is an investment worth its weight in gold, and the fuel can last a long time if you only run it an hour or two a day to run your fridge/freezers and charge devices. You can also use it to charge a Yeti Power Station or similar at the same time, and have power for things like CPAPs/BIPAPs charging phones, portable phone chargers, emergency radios, batteries, etc. And, of course, solar panels are a very good thing to have on hand. Goal Zero makes some really awesome, compact ones that fold out and can continuously charge a power station and keep you at least minimally powered.

Hygiene and Sanitation

Since you likely have a limited water supply, unless you happen to be right next to a body of water, you need to be able to strike a really good balance between cleanliness and conservation. I mentioned a few ways to save water earlier in the post, but I'll add a few specifics here. 

Dishes & Food surfaces

For washing your dishes, you should have three tubs. They only need to be big enough to accommodate a few dishes at a time, and they don't need to be changed unless they get too gross (or soapy, for rinse water) to do the job. NOT too gross for you to feel nice. Wash water can be pretty murky and have floaties and still get dishes clean!

  • Wash tub: Should contain 1-2 drops dish soap per gallon of water. Too much soap will waste rinsing water and soap! You don't need a bunch of suds. Heating optional. It's nice, especially in cold weather, but not necessary.
 Scrape off as much food stuff as possible before putting in wash water, so you don't have to change it so often. If you have pets, they can be great for "prewashing" for you. (Just make sure you know what foods are unsafe for your pet type!) Let soak if needed, and scrub dishes clean in the wash water. Swish around in the water to remove as much soap as possible before rinsing.
  • Rinse tub: Plain water. 
 Rinse well by swishing. You don't want soap in your bleach water, or it will keep it from doing its job as well.
  • Sanitise tub: Cool water with 1 Tbs unscented chlorine bleach per gallon of water - Enough to submerge dishes.
 Soak each batch of dishes for at least one full minute, then air dry completely (Don't rinse again. The bleach will evaporate). A dunk bag is really handy for this. You can put the rinsed dishes in the bag, then dunk in sanitise tub, so you don't have to reach your hand in bleach water, then hang the bag from your line*, and not worry about dishes taking up surface space or getting knocked off a table or whatever. Note that you need the coarse weave mesh for this, not the super fine mesh, to allow for the right amount of air and water flow.
For cleaning food surfaces, dip a dish rag in your wash tub and wring out to clean, then dip another (dedicated for this step) in your sanitising tub, wring out, wipe down, and allow to air dry.  

*Speaking of your line, this is a line of rope, twine, or cord, strung tautly from one stable point to another (trees, posts, side of the house, vehicles, whatever, as long as it's high enough to keep stuff off the ground), which you can use to hang all manner of things. Laundry, dishes, drying meats, fish, unruly children (KIDDING... sort of), lighting, etc. You will really want at least one line in your camp. Bonus - hanging stuff can double as shade/privacy.


You don't need to take a shower or bathe every day, or even every week, and being dirty (with dirt) poses no sanitation hazards as long as you wash or sanitise your hands after anything that can cause bacteria spread and before handling food, and do a daily "sponge bath" of your hands, face, bits and pits. For that, you really only need about 8-12 oz per session, maximum! I'm a very large person, and I can get by with that much. Using a rough, terry cloth or microfiber washcloth is key for making this work. As mentioned above, instead of running/pouring a bunch of water, put some in a small container (I usually use an 8 oz metal, mess kit cup. I heat the water in that too, and it only takes a minute or less on a propane burner to get to a good temp) Dip your hands in to wet them, and work a SMALL amount of soap to a lather between your palms, and massage into each part you're going to wash. Next, dip your washcloth, wring it out back into the container, and use it to scrub and remove most of the soap, ideally starting with your face, then pits, then bits.  Dip the cloth again, but this time squeeze out into a secondary, grey water collection bucket. Get as much of the dirty water out as you can, then give another good dip and use, sopping wet, to do another scrub/rinse, squeeze into the grey water bucket, and then do one more dip, squeeze to grey, and give a last once over of yourself. Then rinse the cloth well in the grey water give it a good misting with your 5% bleach solution, and hang it in the sun to dry.

Hand Washing

For just cleaning general dirt, grime, food during eating or food prep and whatnot, use a washcloth wet with just enough water to make it damp. For actual hand washing, which should definitely be done before food prep and after bathroom or handling any biohazards, setting up a hand washing station is best. Here is a link to the old school, Girl Scout method, using a gallon jug. I actually prefer using one of the aquatainers with the spigot, and tying the soap bylon to the handle. Either way, be sure to put a collection bucket underneath to collect grey water to use for other things, and don't use your hand washing container for drinking water!


As with bathing, you don't need to worry about washing most of your clothes, unless they get something REALLY nasty or hazardous on them. The exception is socks and underwear. And, of course, you'll need to clean your kitchen towels and linens. There are various ways to clean laundry. Plunger or hand agitate in a bucket, manual drum washers, etc, but my favourite for camping, travel, no power, etc is with this guy right here! I love it, and it has worked very well for me for years, in all kinds of situations. It's rather pricey though, and you can also use any dry bag to achieve similar results. It will take more work and not get stuff quite as clean, but it will work. Grey water from your handwashing station is perfect for initial wash water, and your old dish rinse water that is too soapy for dishes will be fine to rinse clothes. After you rinse your laundry, that water can be reserved for the next batch of laundry wash water, general cleanup, or lots of other things. Again, at some point, I'll be making a post that is JUST about water for SHTF situations, and I'll include more info there.


Invest in some sturdy, utilitarian, fire resistant clothing and a good pair of combat/tactical boots. Even if you can't/won't make it your daily wear, you need to have it around. Again, it needn't be expensive. Cruise the thrift shops and get some good, thick jeans (not designer ones - work ones), Carhartts or decent Carhartt knockoffs in canvas/duck cloth, and a couple flannel or wool long sleeve shirts. They are great for layering. A good base layer (thermal underwear) in synthetic material (NOT cotton!) is a very good idea too.

 Carhartt makes all kinds of very durable outerwear (and inner-wear, and every other kind of wear!). If you can find any second hand, it will likely still be in good condition. If not, at least try to invest in a one of their jackets. I have this one, and it is super toasty warm, sturdy as hell, extremely fire resistant, and has stood up to all kinds of abuse for several years. I have never needed a warmer jacket, and that includes a cruise to Glacier Bay in Alaska in September, with many hours spent outside, on deck, and even in a storm with hella wind and 18-20 foot swells. Plus, I just think it looks sharp. 

Propper is another great brand for sturdy, utilitarian, every day wear, especially their TDUs. Do an Amazon search.They are my every day pants and shorts - literally all I wear when I'm not dressing up fancy or lounging at home. They can be pressed and creased and look sharp enough for business casual, but still go the distance for anything you throw at them!

It's hard to find decent boots at the thrift store, but check these out! They are what I finally decided to try after I couldn't find the old (okay, fine - ancient now) style flight deck boots I had always preferred. I was sceptical, due to the amazing price, but took a chance based on all the even more amazing reviews, and now my only regret is not making the switch WAY earlier!


Ideally, you'll make the most of daylight, and get most things done then, but in the fall and winter months, you'll need to supplement. 

I prefer to have a variety of options available at need - candles/candle lanterns, oil lamps, propane lanterns, and led lanterns, tent lights, flashlights, and string lights, both solar and battery powered. If you live somewhere that reliably gets a lot more sun, you may be able to get by mostly with solar power, but I live in the Pacific Northwest, so not really something to count on.

For outdoor lighting, tiki torches are cheap, simple, and can use several variations of fuel. They can be especially handy when filled with citronella torch oil to keep mosquitoes away(you don't have to buy the special jugs of it if you keep citronella essential oil on hand. Just add a few drops to whatever fuel you're using)

If you give your eyes time to actually adjust, you'll find you really need far less light than you may have expected, which means you can save on fuel/batteries, and create less of a beacon advertising your location far and wide. Instead of firing up everything on full brightness the second dusk hits, try letting your vision adjust with the setting sun, and only using the dimmest light necessary to get things done. Sure, sometimes full light is called for, but for most things, just finishing up dinner, sitting around conversing, or hanging out, there's no need for additional light at all, and even got getting up and walking around, especially if you've gotten to know the terrain well, you really won't need more than a dim glow.

Practise Makes Better!!

Take your acquired gear and learning, and go camping (real camping, in the wilderness! Not some fancified camping resort that is more like a hotel where you sleep outside!) as often as you can. Practice set up and strike and ways to do all the day to day things. Get good at it.
Work out routines for setting up and striking camp, preparing meals, taking care of personal hygiene and camp sanitation, making firewood/supply/foraging runs, etc. Do it the same way, every time, other than making improvements here and there to make the routine better.

Whenever at all possible, stay for at least a week or two at a time. Most State and National Forest lands officially require you to move to a different area every two weeks, so you may have to strike camp and set up a few miles away, but many times, the Rangers will look the other way if you're not in a particularly popular area, are treating the land, wildlife, and resources right, and can assure them that you do have a regular, permanent address, and are not trying to take up full time residence on their patch. This can be ESPECIALLY true if you are friendly with them and let them know what you're doing. Some will be more than happy to give you some additional tips and resources too!

If you can't go camping, fake it. "Camp" outside in your yard, if you have one, or a friend or neighbour's yard if you don't. Even if those aren't options, you can still get some practice by doing utility outage drills regularly (Google it and/or look for a linked post here soonish)

In summary, you can do several little things, starting right now, to get yourself ready to handle just about anything that comes your way, so don't put it off any longer. 

If you've got questions, or additional idea and information to add, please feel free to post them in the comments! (As long as it isn't spam for the sake of spam. Links to good gear is fine. Links to random BS will be deleted.)

Khaos WolfKat's Mindbreak Theory (From 1999)

This is something I wrote and posted on my personal (and only) website in 1999, over twenty years ago, at the tender age of twenty eight. It only just now occurred to me to post the writing here, where it might be more widely seen.

I've made some spelling and punctuation corrections. Other than that, it remains unchanged.

It's interesting for me to note, now mere weeks from turning fifty, that, with a few minor exceptions, my ideals espoused therein remain similarly unchanged. 

 Khaos WolfKat's Mindbreak Theory

At birth, the mind is completely open; No walls to break up the continuity of thought or consciousness. We can see the Allness of the everything. We have an unbroken stream of consciousness. Then, as we get older, walls are constructed in the form of societal norms, taboos, opinions, prejudices, rules & laws. We learn that these walls (conformity) are "good". The mind is now incapable of continuity, because it has been broken. We exist within a series of closed compartments. At some point, we will invariably experience things that will blow holes in these walls. The mind will become further broken. Now there are paths by which the stream of consciousness can go from one point to another, but it is very maze-like and can cause much confusion.

At this point, there are three options.

Option one

Continue in this phase: Leave the breaks in the walls, but don't allow the walls to fall. This is, I believe, where most people get stuck. This is a place where you are somewhat open to higher truths, but still have the illusion of safety behind the walls. This can be an advantage if used only as a transitional state, but can become far too confusing in the long term, and will most likely lead to insanity. I am referring here not only to what society in general terms as "insanity", but to true insanity as well. One can only live on the fence for so long before something has to give. Examine the statements of the majority of mental patients who are hospitalized for suicide attempts or ideations, and I am certain that a trend will be found with regard to this phase. I have been there myself.

Option two

Completely reject any ideas that may do further damage to the walls. Repair the damage already done and make them indestructible or nearly so. Continue to live life "safe" within the confines of ignorance, AKA: Conformity. There are advantages here. This is the phase/mindset (interesting word here: Mindset..appropriate) which is most acceptable to the majority of Western society, especially those in power (ie: Lawmakers, law enforcement, traditional educational institutions and those running "the business world"). This means that one who chooses to stay in this mindset will most likely encounter little or no opposition in trying to "make it" in this society, climb the so-called "ladder of success", etc. This is probably because this person does not question authority; doesn't ask, "Why must I do this? Who made these rules and what is their purpose?" Such an individual simply accepts limitations and/or directives imposed by others as "the way things are". This way of looking at life is considered stable; good; acceptable. This type of person often rises to positions associated with "success" by most. That would be ideal if material gain and social status were all there was (not to mention attainable by all!). A few truly believe this to be so. Most do not. So, the disadvantages, one would think, will be purely of the spiritual nature. That may be so on the surface, but the walls/compartments prevent one from being able to think laterally. As I have stated earlier, the stream of consciousness is broken. Any line of thought that requires thinking outside a given sector, or that would overlap from one "compartment" to another is impossible. This, then, affects the cognitive functions as well. When one's cognitive ability, that is, one's ability to think is affected, then the ability to get things done in day-to-day life is affected. This, in turn is likely to cause insecurity and/or inadequacy. This is emotional. So, this "purely spiritual" concept, suddenly involves the mental and emotional as well. But it doesn't stop there. When the mind cannot function up to par, one may be unable to support oneself, to provide for basic needs. This is also true of not being emotionally up to par. Now the physical is affected as well. So, this individual who, on the surface and by conventional social standards, seems to be of the most stable and functional type, may actually be on the brink of complete breakdown at any given moment, not in spite of their "stability", but, in truth, because of it.
All things to consider before choosing this option.

Option three

Allow the walls to finish falling. Thoroughly examine all the pieces and clean up the debris. Let the mind revert to the wide-open state. This choice takes a large amount of courage, initially, but the rewards can more than make up for it. With the walls down and a truly open mind, the individual is now capable of free thinking in its truest form. This is not the "narrow path", though it is travelled by relatively few. Those who choose this for their path are not "trail blazers", as many have called us. That implies that there is a specific path that one must follow and this defeats the whole concept of free thought . Throughout the existence of humankind, there have been many trailblazers and many more who have blindly followed along those trails. With an open mind, there are no established trails to follow.. Each individual is free to make their own path, to choose whatever route works best for that person. One need not go into this blindly, however. Though there are as many paths as there are people to create them, many overlap, cross or parallel at various points, so that one is never alone for too long. Although we, as stated earlier, are not trailblazers, most are willing to share how we have found our own path and to assist others in creating/discovering theirs. Often, an individual's route will start out following someone else's, but to experience total freedom, it is necessary to seek your own. This is not to advocate the rejection of all others' ideas or teachings, but to encourage each individual to examine ideas, teachings or beliefs and to weigh them against one's own experience, thoughts, desires and beliefs, rather than simply comparing them to existing societal standards. In other words, be true to self. Each of us knows, at some level, what is truly best for us. This is referred to as "heart of hearts", "soul", "higher self", "Godhead", and many other terms. The key to finding that standard lies within the open mind. All walls consisting of societal, moralistic concepts of morals, sin, ethics, right vs. wrong, taboo, etc. have been demolished, and what remains is Truth. This is enlightenment.
Now I must acknowledge that there are risks associated with living as an enlightened being. To most of modern society, especially Western society, the ideas presented here are downright ludicrous, and the individual who espouses them, insane... quite possibly dangerously so. The attitude and outlook on life and existence that tends to come with enlightenment is not very compatible with today's fast-paced, gotta-get-ahead, greed/profit driven world; Nor is it usually compatible with organized religion. This means that to embrace a state of enlightenment is pretty much to go against the grain of what this country was founded on and is run by. This can present quite a challenge, and it may be tempting to abandon truth in favour of "majority rules" at the first sign of opposition. It would seem that most people do. It is much easier to succumb; To be swept out by the tide into the sea, than to swim against it and preserve oneself. When you are true to self, many will perceive this as selfishness. This is because we are taught from infancy that our own needs, wants and desires are unimportant and that to seek fulfilment of those needs/wants/desires is somehow unnatural and wrong. This couldn't be farther from the truth! We instinctively try to fulfil these because when it comes to the bottom line, it is (or at least used to be) necessary for survival. In modern society, we pretty much have all the basic necessities taken care of, so it is easier to convince us that we don't need that survival instinct.
Once we have been convinced that this is not a need, it becomes a simple matter to convince us that it is a frivolous want, and therefore, selfish.
This makes us ideal candidates for a lifetime of service to others (ie: those who are in power and would like to stay that way). We are generally handed long lists of rules; "Do's and don'ts" with little or no explanation and the expectation that we will not look for one. We, who not only look for explanations, but demand them, are a threat to the entire system as it stands! If enough people choose a path of enlightenment and, as a result, reclaim self and personal freedom, it is only a matter of time before We become a force too powerful to oppress. Those in power know this, and so, react with strong opposition to anyone not strictly adhering to the sheep mentality.

This all laid out before you... Which option will you choose?
