Thanks Super 'D
I savy Sta Bil...I figured swap out every 9 mos. My mom 82, and my sis live in the country...we have designated their location as a "gathering point" for a limited number of folks for "whatever".. bird flu..hurricane...civil disobediance...etc. I AM NOT a nuttity uhhhh ahhhh.....survivalist....just "in case". STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT!!! LOL
I savy use of microwave and other minalmal ele usage appliances...but as the only water is from a well, just had probs tieing down its' starting wattage. I got everthing from 3 kw to 6 kw. I know---go bigger! LOL Forget the iceboxes and air conditioner, just survival mode. Water for use and garden and food animals, micro, and radio/TV short term like an hour a day. Got a cord of firewood, seeds, food for 8 for 3 mos, ammo, and other "stuff".
I kinda feel parinoid, BUT...in these days and times, I, and those I care about, dont wanna be stuck on I-10 with a quart of water, no gas and nowhere to go and not knowing where all your loved ones are!! I might be able to put up with it, but I dont want that those I care about be stuck with it. We got a plan....I hope everyone on this board at least thinks about it!! There may be times when cell phones are jammed or dont work!!! It took a week to contact a friend in Alabama after Katrina...cells down. I dont want to wait a week to know if a son or daughter is alive or not!
Just for the record, I have only spent about 300 bucks...gonna spend another 500 or 600...cheapest ins I have ever bought!! Hope I, or you never need it.
