PW Special Offer – The First Move My Dad Made

This is a special offer for Prepper Website readers!

In August 2013, I had the opportunity to partner with Prepare Now Outfitters to offer the Lifestraw for $18.  The deal only ran for a limited time.  Since then, I’ve had people ask me if I was going to be able to offer the Lifestraw for that price again.  After all, it is the lowest price I have ever seen the Lifestraw without being attached to another purchase.

The cost, $18 includes free shipping!  I put my money where my mouth (email) was and purchased 5 for my family and our bugout bags.  This time, I will purchase some for my extended family.

The First Move My Dad Made

About a year ago, my dad bought some property out in the country.  It is going to serve as a weekend retreat and if we ever need it, our family bugout location.  It is totally off-grid.  And although it is HOT – Texas HOT, and we always work it when we go up there (read no relaxation), I love to be there!  You have probably seen some pics on the PW Facebook  page before.  We have big plans for it!

The first thing that I recommended to my dad to do before anything else was to get a well dug.  It was expensive, but I believe it was well worth it.  You see, I believe the most important thing that we can have in our preparedness is clean, potable water.

I’ll spare you the rule of 3’s.  If you’re reading this, you probably already know them!  But, I can’t stress enough how important water is.  In fact, when my wife came on board with the preparedness mindset, the first thing we bought together was a 55 gallon drum with a pump that we could use for water storage.  That was before I started storing water in 2 liters….many 2 liters.  I also have a 100 gallon Water Bob for the bathtub.  And recently, I purchased a LifeStraw for every member of my family.  Redundancy, redundancy, redundancy!

I remember the first time I saw the LifeStraw in action.  I was at the Self Reliant Expo in Mesquite, Texas.  My dad and I were walking around checking out the various vendors.  I stopped at the LifeStraw booth to see what it was all about.  The salesperson had a clear, Solo glass of dirty (I mean muddy, nasty) water and told me that he could drink it through the LifeStraw and that it would filter all the dirt.  He demonstrated it for me, but before he did, he threw more dirt in the water for effect.  He sucked up the water through the LifeStraw and when he had a mouth full, he spit it out into another clear Solo cup.  The water was clear!

Since then, I have seen LifeStraws advertised everywhere on preparedness websites.  I have always seen them advertised for $19.95.

Well, I have partnered with PrepareNow Outfitters to offer the LifeStraw at the lowest price I have seen them on the internet, $18.00.  This price includes free shipping!

If you are not familiar with the LifeStraw, here is a description from the PrepareNow Outfitters website page,

    Hello Todd,
    I’m the dude in Toronto, Canada who sent ya congrats on the anniversary of your website. (I was not trying to curry favour and I meant everything I said- you have more new content than most of the other sites put together.) Hey!
    Not only that- I am picking up a lot of useful ideas from postings that you put up. My adult kids think I wear a tinfoil hat- they don’t take me seriously and they aren’t preppers, (but when I make something from the stuff that you post online, I usually make a half- dozen or so of them, and give the rest away.
    (What the hey- I fish most of the materials out of the dumpster here).
    Am currently superintending a 70 unit apartment complex here, (you would not believe some of the things that people throw away) and after checking the stuff over, repairing if possible, I then give the stuff to new tenants.
    Of the 180 or so people in my buildings, there are only TWO other ‘preppers’ (a young couple next door). We get together occasionally to have a brewski and exchange information, etc. And we horsetrade stuff back and forth.
    Am tempted to order some of those lifestraw things that you are talking about.
    Question: If I attached a couple of feet of plastic tubing to one of those things, and then hung it below a container, would it filter into a clean container, once I got it going?
    Am planning a motorcycle trip across the USA for sometime next spring, (already done it two or three times) and if it actually happens, would like to perhaps drop by and take ya out for lunch?

    I’m not sure if the LifeStraw would work that way. I believe that you have to continually suck to get the water through the filter. That might be a good experiment to try.

    I did find this video for you though –

    I would love to hook up for coffee or lunch. I’m always good with linking up with preppers and talking shop! 😉

    That deal was for a certain time. I’m not sure if I will get that deal again, but I will be working with other online retailers to bring great deals to PW in the future. I have something prepared for Nov. 2013.

    I have tried multiple times today, Saturday 19 April, to order 3 LifeStraws. Your system keep trying to charge me $9.00 shipping. No deal unless shipping charge removed. I did use the discount code given. What gives?


  6. Todd - Prepper Website April 12th, 2014 at 10:19 pm

    Let me check into it.



  7. Todd - Prepper Website April 12th, 2014 at 11:44 pm


    I checked with Prepare Now and everything is still up and going. Shipping should be taken off at the end of the transaction, when you type in the code.
