I just hope in solving existing problems we don't end up creating bigger ones.

Get with one of the neighbors on the creek behind us and rig an alternator to a waterwheel for 12v power to charge 18v, 3.7v, and AA / AAA batteries.

We've got a small solar array to charge the 12 volt battery. Should keep some things running. Have access to 'other' power sources but not as easy for us. Water would be an issue (well). It is shallow enough (20 feet to the table) to get by hand but it'd take some work to put something in.
