I'm curious as to how many of our members have a power generator at home.

I was thinking of buying one a few weeks back, but figured it wasn't necessary for now.

If you wait until it is necessary then it will be like toilet paper is now. None to be had and if you do find one it will cost you an arm and a leg. Preppers are looking pretty smart right now. their entire philosophy is about doing things BEFORE they are an absolute necessity. I rolled into this set for at least 3 months to 6 months of the necessities and then only added luxuries like snacks and such when this started. I have been through a 6-week power outage after Hurricane Rita and had a great time. I'm not a nut about this but I don't wait until the house is on fire to think about buying a smoke detector either. If you will spend about ten dollars a week on long term stapes in less than a year you will be set to ride out a shortage of up to 6 months. One thing that I recommend that you do get is a Rocket Stove or learn how to make one. I have an EcoZoom Rocket Stove and with it you can cook using any carbon-based biomass for fuel. It is so efficient that it even mostly burns the smoke and you can cook a meal with a handful of twigs. I have a wood meat smoker, a wood stove and a gas grill but that Rocket Stove is something that you can always find fuel for. You need food and then you need a way to cook it they go hand in hand.


Last time I went to the store they had more toilet paper than I've ever seen in my life. It was spilling over into the isle and you had to walk around it. :ROFLMAO:

I am more invested in Solar and wood stoves myself.
