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!
