Despite all the good recommendations, people continue to make mistakes when preparing. Many of these mistakes are so major that they completely defeat the purpose of getting ready for a crisis situation.
The purpose of this report is to share with you the top 12 mistakes people make when preparing so that you can avoid them. By following this advice, you'll put yourself in a much better position to handle whatever comes your way.
Once the grid goes down, sanitation will become a huge problem. Toilets won't work after a few days, garbage trucks won't come around, rats will show up and, eventually, disease will run rampant. The last thing you and your family members want to deal with in a crisis is illness.
Assuming you have bugged out, you're going to need a makeshift toilet. Things to remember are to not place it near your food or water source, nor uphill from your campsite. It should be at least 200 feet away from your resources.
