Plans for cooking after a power outage Most important – have a plan. Think out your plans, share your plans with your family and friends. Cooking with wood is the only long term survival solution. Gas, propane, coleman fuel and white gasoline will run out. Wood is a renewable resource. Every survivalist should have a way to cook with wood, even if it over an open pit. Some local parks have camping areas that have a fire pit that can be used for using wood to cook with. Visit a park near you, take some pictures and get some ideas on building your own fire ring for cooking. shtf eotwawki cooking after a disaster urban survivalist survival
