Day 2 Challenge

Here is day twos challenge and I know that I would have failed this one if I had chosen to do it. Storing water is really hard. Where do you put it... in what kind of container... if you have to use it how do you purify it without electricity. I have taught myself how to make a volcano stove
and could use this to cook the water. I also made one out of fire brick so I would be able to cook my water to pasteurize it. So on to day two challenge


DAY 2 CHALLENGE - WATER SERVICE INTERRUPTION

Your country is experiencing a WAR and the water purification facility in your area has 
been bombed. All water services coming to your home have been halted indefinitely. (If 
you use well water, your well was destroyed too!) Today you will practice living without 
running water in your home and experience cooking, sanitation, hygiene, etc. with 
STORED water.

Today's Goal: Learn what your water needs will truly be in an emergency

Please note: Today is a NEW emergency, none of the limitations listed yesterday apply. Your country is experiencing a WAR and the water purification facility in your area has been bombed. All water services coming to your home have been halted indefinitely. (If you use well water, your well was destroyed too!) Today you will practice living without running water in your home and experience cooking, sanitation, hygiene, etc. with STORED water.
Goal: Learn what your water needs will truly be in an emergency

Daily limitations and tasks:
Today’s Tasks:
·         Cook all meals (and CLEAN UP) using only stored water
·         Take a shower or bath using stored water (Don’t cheat and skip this one!)
·         Use stored water for flushing toilets
·         Calculate your usage for the day and use that number to determine how much of a water supply you actually have
·         FILL any empty water containers you have been procrastinating on filling
·         Make a plan for how you will collect/purify additional water if/when you run out (use your daily report card to help)

This is a challenge especially living in a small house but I have found 50 gallon containers that will suffice but I need to fill them up!
