The 7 Day Challenge: Day 5 (SUNDAY)

Home / Site Highlights / 7 Day Challenge / The 7 Day Challenge: Day 5 (SUNDAY)


There has been an earthquake and you have lost some utilities


  • For this day, and ALL days of the challenge: no spending money, no going to stores, and no restaurants.
  • Your water pipe broke, and you have no water access
  • The power has been cut off
  • It’s the 2nd day of the earthquake, your fridge food has gone bad, but the food in your freezer has managed to stay cold enough to use
  • You’re driving home from checking on a family member and the road is blocked with a bunch of large rocks from the earthquake, did you have a small car shovel (this is a very highly recommended item to store in your car)
  • During the earthquake a beam fell on your computer(s) and crushed it. Did you have your data backed up in a remote location?
  • Keep your family entertained all day with no power

ADVANCED “FOLKS” (for anyone who feels up to it)

  • If you have a generator – it got CRUSHED!
  • Unfortunately all fridges and freezers in your home ALSO got crushed!

REMEMBER, TOMORROW’S LIMITATIONS AND TASKS WILL BE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. How long would you have lasted under these conditions?
