Out of work young one needed an emergency infusion of cash, so I needed to put off some of my plans for the week. However, it was still a good week, with slow and steady progress:
· Purchased a couple of Energizer brand crank LED flashlights to add to my lighting stores.
· Picked up a second “lugable loo” toilet seat for a 5 gallon bucket. It will be nice to have a 2-seater if shtf. Actually , this is part of the redundant strategy of 3 is 2, 2 is 1, and 1 is none. That is, have a backup for your backup.
· Received my Deadwood Stove. This thing is built like a tank and will be an excellent tool for when shtf. I plan to really put it through its paces during the time I have off for the holidays.
· Received my Gerber Steadfast knife. This exceeded my expectations and it is one big sturdy knife. It reminds me a lot of my Buck 119. I can’t wait to strap this one to my belt during my next camping excursion.
· Continued to work the buy one – get one at the local grocery stores. Was able to pick up more rice and granola bars to add to my food stores.
· Picked up a couple of Figure 9 Rope Tighteners (came with 10 ft of paracord) at the local discount hardware store. These things are awesome and will come in handy in a pinch. I’ll probably go back and pick up a few more.
