DIY: Preppers' Grill... Build a Hot-Box Solar Cooker

Let's just say that during the zombie apocalypse, your family's hungry and that there's no power... No problem! This project lets you cook off the grid with a sun-fueled oven hot enough to raise some dough. Perfect for the SHTF scenario!

1.) Find Parts
The project makes use of scraps (or full 4 x 8 sheets) of ¾-inch and ½-inch plywood. It also requires 4d trim nails, a 6-foot length of 1½-inch-wide flat wood trim, 36 inches of ¼-inch-square molding, a half-sheet of ½-inch rigid foam insulation, a half-sheet of ½-inch drywall, two white ceramic knobs, eight 3-inch mending plates, construction adhesive, high-­temperature flat black spray paint, heavy-duty aluminum foil, No. 8 bolts, washers and nuts and a piece of ¼-inch plate glass cut to 13 x 14½ inches, with the edges sanded smooth.

2.) Build the Box
Construct an open-top box using ¾-inch plywood for a 14 x 15½–inch bottom. Use ½-inch plywood to make four 7-inch-tall sides. With a vise and pliers, bend the mending plates to 135-degree angles. Fasten two plates to each box side with 1-inch No. 8 bolts, washers and nuts. Cut pieces of rigid foam insulation to line the box interior. Glue the foam to the plywood using construction adhesive. Cut and glue drywall panels to fit on top of the foam. Paint the interior black.

3.) Prep the Top, Prepper
Nail wood trim over the edges of the foam and drywall. Cut the molding into four 9-inch lengths. Center the glass pane over the opening. Put the moldings around the glass perimeter. Nail them down to steady the pane. Glue the knobs to the glass.

4.) Make Reflectors
Cut rigid foam to four 12 x 24–inch panels. Wrap the foam in aluminum foil. Bolt the panels to the plates.

5.) Bake It Up
Prep food in a black enamel­ pot with a lid; set the pot in the box. Replace the glass. Prop up the oven at an angle so the sun and reflectors shine directly on it. Use an oven thermometer to gauge heat. Note: This oven does not bake as quickly as a regular one (but our scones, with butter and lingonberry jam, were still delicious). Wear oven mitts to handle the ceramic knobs—they get hot!

June 14: the American Flag Day

Do you know what day it is? It's June 14, it must be Flag Day!

Flag Day has been a presidentially proclaimed observance since 1916. Although Flag Day is not a federal holiday, Americans are encouraged to display the flag outside their homes and businesses on this day to honor the history and heritage the American flag represents.

The Flag of the United States of America is a symbol of freedom and liberty to which Americans pledge their allegiance. It consists of 13 alternating red and white stripes and 50 white stars on a blue field, with each star representing a state.

The colors on the flag represent:
  • Red: valor and bravery
  • White: purity and innocence
  • Blue: vigilance, perseverance, and justice
Out of respect for the U.S. flag, never:
  • dip it for any person or thing, even though state flags, regimental colors and other flags may be dipped as a mark of honor. 
  • display it with the union down, except as a signal of distress. let the flag touch anything beneath it: ground, floor, water, merchandise. 
  • carry it horizontally, but always aloft. fasten or display it in a way that will permit it to be damaged or soiled. 
  • place anything on the flag, including letters, insignia, or designs of any kind. use it for holding anything. use it as wearing apparel, bedding or drapery. 
  • It should not be used on a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be attached to the uniform of patriotic organizations, military personnel, police officers and firefighters. 
  • use the flag for advertising or promotion purposes or print it on paper napkins, boxes or anything else intended for temporary use and discard.

Gear of the Month: the Campa Survival Trailer

If you have the means, I think you'll like this one... It's a "survival trailer" by Campa USA, a company based in Ohio. This all-in-one disaster-camping-adventure kit is all about being prepared in any situation...

Water purification system, propane bottle and a Honda portable generator? Check. Full ammo boxes, one satellite communication system and a beautifully tapered oak kitchen? Check, check, check.
And a toilet as well? We already feel relieved.

I don't know about you, but I'm saving up for one!!!
