Here is the latest featured outhouse. Fly into Fairbanks, Alaska and this will be the first outhouse you will see!
Are You Prepared with Food, Backup Power, Water, Sanitation and Power?
I used to poo poo those "preppers". Not any more. If a pandemic of any kind takes hold, people won't go to work and it won't take long for the power to shut down. Food, Water, Sanitation, Communication (a small shortwave radio) and Power are essential items to have. Homeland security and FEMA recommend you have enough food, water and power to last you for 72 hours in case of an emergency. I took control of my emergency food, water, communications and sanitation needs a few years ago. I also built a battery bank to power my home and you can too!
The Ebola virus is spreading in Africa. Could it come here?
Smallpox is in the news. Many of our children never received smallpox vacinations.
Pneumonic plague and other pandemics are an airplane flight away.
Toledo, Ohio and Southeastern Michigan (August 2014): Over 500,000 people are told not to drink or even bathe in the community provided water
because of algae and chemicals found in Lake Erie.
These are just a few of the deadly viruses and water emergencies which have garnered national headlines during the past month.
Do you really trust the Power Grid?
Have you or someone you know lost power recently due to a storm or some other reason?
Remember the Blackout of 2003?
Many people were without power for days.

Power and Lighting - We recommend you use Eneloop AA or AAA Rechargeable batteries. Buy at least 16 of each and use them in all your AA and AAA Battery devices. Try to buy radios and other gear that use AA or AAA batteries. It's very easy to recharge AA or AAA batteries from your battery bank with the charger we have listed below.

Also carry a Nalgene water bottle to put water in for your LifeStraw: Nalgene BPA Free Tritan Wide Mouth Water Bottle, 32 Oz, Gray with Black Lid
A Berkey is the best home water filter there is: Berkey RB4x2-CF Royal Berkey 2.25 Gal. Stainless Steel Water Filter with Ceramic Filters
Sanitation - Read All About Composting Toilets and The Loveable Loo®
As you know, we became famous by featuring pretty much everything you would want to know about outhouses. We are becoming more and more green and that is why
we now firmly believe that all outhouses could be converted to a greener outhouse by using the Loveable Loo instead of "dumping" into the ground.
You can learn more about Humanure, Composting your human waste and going green by using a Loveable Loo and sawdust. Read about the Loveable Loo by clicking this link
Home Battery Bank Information:
By following this link, you can purchase a complete step by step video on how to make your own emergency home battery bank.
This can be as small as one marine battery or it can be a whole bank of batteries, Steven Harris shows you everything.
He covers battery selection in detail; he shows you how to set up your battery, how to hook up the inverter, battery monitors
and other fail safe stuff so you always know your battery bank is working and ready to go plus he goes into step by step on
how to make a mobile version of this battery bank for a pickup truck and he also goes into explicit details on hooking
up a solar panel to the battery bank (home or mobile).
DO NOT fall into the SCAM that is the 'solar generator' junk
they sell out there. Those are a lot of money for very little. This shows you how to make your own for 1/10 the price
of what those crooks want to charge you. This DIY Video is incredibly detailed.
Anyone with zero knowledge can watch these videos and then make and USE their own battery bank.
A battery bank will be the NUMBER ONE thing you will go to and rely on the second the power fails.
Steven has been building and using these for over 20 years. There are 3 videos in this purchase and they are
ALL in 720P HD Video format and are a total of 4.5 hours in length. These are very detailed.
There will be NO DOUBT in your mind on how to make a battery bank when you are done watching these videos.
To further supplement my power, I bought a small 800 Watt Harbor Freight 2-cycle generator. It's enough power to run my refrigerator, my small freezer and some lights. Just recently, my mother in law lost power due to a bad storm. That little generator ran her refrigerator and a small tv and lights for over 8 hours on a single gallon of gas!
Find out more by going to this site. You can also purchase the DVDs at that time if you want. We highly recommend them. In fact, EVERYONE should purchase these and build
a battery bank for backup power.
Note: The Outhouses of America Tour will receive a small commission if you buy a set of these DVD's. Help keep the "Tour" going AND
help yourself by building a battery bank for backup power in case you lose power. It's a WIN WIN situation!
