Our survival gas burners is one of the most popular items here at Defend Survive Prepare...but this email isn’t about that burner.
Every survivalist and prepper had probably heard the slogan, “2 is 1 and 1 is none.”
What it means is that no matter how great a survival product is, if it breaks or you lose it, you are dead in the water unless you have a backup.
This raises the question…
What type of backup you should have in a survival kit or bugout bag?
You could just buy a second gas stove… and that’s great if your stove breaks, BUT…
If your problem is that you’ve run out of fuel, then you have two useless stoves and nothing to cook with.
What I would recommend is to packing extra fuel for your burner… AND you pack a survival wood stove.
These are folding metal stoves that collapse down flat for ease of storage and carrying in a survival kit.
(You could even put this one in a pocket, I think,)
That way, if you run out of fuel for your survival stove, you can always use twigs, sticks, branches, leaves, or even grass and any other burnable debris you can find to make a fire.
It won’t take up much weight or space to have one or two of these folded stoves in your bag, just in case…
— and it means you have a TRUE backup in case your primary means of cooking fails or runs out of fuel.
