Recharging and Refilling: Tech for Emergency Preparation or Camping

We keep expecting the unexpected, my wife Lisa Kivirist and I, on our small homestead. We hope for the best, but continue to prepare for the worst. After all, the heatwaves, floods and wildfires keep breaking records. Many people are beginning to realize that we are not returning “to normal” with the covid-19 pandemic spiking and mutating around the world. And the impacts of climate change keep showing up on headlines and feeds.

Over the past year, we’ve found several other products that help build our resilience, could come in handy during a crisis, reduce our ecological impacts, or just make getting into outdoors on a camping trip more enjoyable. After learning about some of these products at the digital Techfluence and Consumer Electronics Show (CES), we decided to try them out.

Like many Mother Earth News homesteaders, we’ve doubled down on food production and preservation and have taken more time to exercise in and enjoy the outdoors. We’ve assessed our homestead from the perspective of how to make it even more resilient and adaptable to change.

Using Ozone to Clean with the Roving Blue GO3 and Roving Blue Ozo-Pod 10

From increasingly regular power outages to catastrophic disasters, access to safe drinking water is mission critical. Ozone, or O3, kills harmful microbes quickly and reverts to water. Roving Blue offers both a GO3 Water Bottle cap pod as well as the Ozo-Pod 10 which can be used to sanitize not only drinking water, but bathroom and kitchen surfaces, traffic hotspots for disease transfer, and even meats, fruits and vegetables. We love using it to clean our wooden cutting boards as we up our safety protocols.
