For Our Canadian Friends

       Canada is a a geographically very large nation, and is subject to episodic storms sufficient to make mobility difficult.  Planning for these events is essential.   There are a number of excellent sites either on a provincial or a federal level for Canadians.  However, I really did want to call to your attention an excellent business where you can obtain almost any needed survival supply.

www.bridensolutions.ca


Briden supplies everything from freeze dried food both made and shipped from Canada, to volcano stoves


This stove sells for CAD$ 149.00    

The Volcano 2 Collapsible Cook Stove is the best thing you can have in any preparedness situation.

With it's patented cook chamber, double wall construction for lower heat transfer to the outside, heavy duty steel construction, collapsible design and the ability to use charcoal/brickets, wood and propane make the Volcano the best choice to help you be ready for any situation that may arise.
