Rotated/restocked water supplies, cleaned and detailed both vehicles, and took a nice long trail ride with my wife on our bikes.

I personally like using 2 liter soda bottles. I clean them as soon as the soda has been finished off & refill them with tap water. I change the water out every 6 months.

I use 3 liter soda bottles to store rice in and 2 liter juice bottles to store grains (beans, peas, etc) in.

I have found that 3 liter bottles are good for storing spaghetti in. The 2 liter botles are too short.

Took a side trip (1100 miles, one way) from where we had been to where we are gonna be, to our "home." Replaced the food and water in the kits in our car, and dug out a spare GI canteen cup, so I can try to make a cliffstove when time permits...

Got a Kel-Tec sling, Phantom flash suppressor and another Bushmaster 30 round magazine for the SU-16C. Now I need more ammo; might have to start reloading .223.

Started breaking in the 7-30 Waters barrel on the Contender Carbine. Fired one shot and thoroughly cleaned the barrel, ten times. Ten more rounds and it should be broken in. Then on to serious reloading for accuracy.

Bunch more MRE Crackers / PB packets. A new lantern (3 AA River Rock - very nice for the price and size).
