    After Opal & Ivan I took the deep cycle battery out of my boat and parking lights and the fixtures for them and wired my place with phone wire to light it. I also ran a couple of 12 volt fans at night off that battery. I didnít have to burn a lot of gas in the generator after Ivan and didnít have a generator for Opalís aftermath

It is not tacticool: run it over with a 6X6 truck thing but it does work as advertised. Snicker at it now be amazed when you need it. Light weight, small and packs well. Bugout Bag or camping use too. I have two units.

    Wild that thing is really cool. Think I'll order one. Another thing that works good but won't charge your phone is those little sidewalk lights the girls are so fond of. They're cheap and you can charge them during the day and bring them in at dusk. Hell of a lot safer than candles.

    *rant over

    Caveman that might have been a rant but it was all on target. I don't think Budweiser is even owned by Americans any longer so you can't expect much help there.
    Anyway, Publix was stocked back up and I got my 'taters for my greasy fries today.

    Fact is during the depression a lot people survived off their gardens, chickens, and what ever they could pick or kill in the woods.

    Was just using Google Street View to check out Mexico Beach and while "driving" down one of the roads the street view suddenly shifted from a serene May 2011 to a storm ravaged October 2018. Depending on which way you turn it switches between before and after, weird.
