Don't forget the importance of testing your preps....I bought a brand new $20 Mag Light flashlight - AND it was defective - I tried everything to make it work - had to return it for another (next one worked fine).

After that episode,, I have been taking care to test things out before the BIG TEST comes around.....Test your propane stoves, Aladin Lamps, type of firewood, etc.....

One of the 55 gal water barrels had a leak after filling it.Check your barrels.

Along the same lines, be sure to sample portions of the food and veverage that you store. There'd be nothing like finding out that the 50 gallons of jug wine you stored was unusable for most purposes! Or that the oats you bought weren't rolled...
