I altered my prepping strategy to include precious metals.

JI... don't know if you are familiar with Thai baht bracelets, but the charms come in labeled gram mass amount of gold

I replaced my original NiCd power packs for my Ridgid cordless and contractor fan with Liion... I got OEM with the lifetime warranty rather than cheaper after market... OK, the real reason was that it has been super hot for Steel Challenge matches, and I needed a better fan battery for the gun cart smile

I ordered thirty Cyalume Light Sticks, two 48 Count boxes of peanut butter cracker sandwiches, and a bottle of Liddell's homeopathic oral spray. I also added a hygiene product to the shopping list.

Soon, I will order more nutritional supplements, beef summer sausage, and Alka-Seltzer.

I checked all expiration dates for my medical kit and four first aid kits and ordered items that have or will soon expire.

I checked the battery for my glucometer and ordered two replacement batteries for when I do need them.

I rotated my stock after receiving my monthly shipment of Zevia Rootbeer (an all-natural clear soda with only four ingredients: carbonated water, stevia leaf extract, natural flavors, and citric acid).

I ordered more cracker sandwiches and Alka-Seltzer from Sam's, but when I tried to order Glucerna, the vanilla was out of stock for delivery but had chocolate.

In the past, I ordered vanilla as a preference. Since May/June, I've been reacting to things I usually don't react to.

It turns out I can get the vanilla from Amazon and at a slight discount. The problem is, Amazon is currently limiting them to four a month. I usually go through three cases a month, but I've been going through five boxes a month since I've been sick.

I'll order one case of chocolate Glucerna from Sam's. Hopefully, I won't experience an adverse reaction as I have with other food items.

I tested one of the Cyalume Light Sticks. Not only did I want to be sure I did not end up with a bad batch, but I also wanted to be sure that in the middle of the night, with minimal light, I can grab the light stick beside my bed, opening it, activate it and do everything I need to do from the light of the stick. Figuring out how to open the package in the dark presented a slight challenge. Other than that, the test was a success.

I'm considering getting a windup clock. Not only will I know the time when we have no power, but I would also like a source of white noise during a power outage.

I guess the hurricane has come and gone since your last post, so I hope you made it ok.

Cyalumes were clever 30 years ago but LED lighting has made them obsolete since then. I would have said, equip yourself with a small LED headlamp. I have some very cheap 3aaa ones that are not waterproof but are better than nothing. I got them from morningsave.com but places like Costco also sell them. I'm looking into getting something better but these will do for now.
