CA I got mine after you advised a few months ago. I am very happy with them. I went direct to Monolithic and paid $32 with shipping. Shipping was $10 at CTD. Thank You.

Also, for the past week we were pointed at a large spot of solar activity from the sun. Never know what could happen there.
Solar flares, US lowering debt rating, Occupy everything, too much going on right now. I guess we are just preparing for an impending economic meltdown.

Plus, my wife lets me buy some cool toys to stash in one of my bags (GHB, BOB).
Speaking of solar flares, I am have a astronomy class in school and we just got done talking about the sun and solar flares. This website has day to day updates of the suns activity, if you really care about it hahaSpaceWeather.com -- News and information about meteor showers, solar flares, auroras, and near-Earth asteroids

there's also a iPhone/iPod app called 3D sun that has live data and pictures of the sun

For me personally, I'm keeping it simple. Planning for permanent loss of power. No plans to "bug out", I'm staying put if possible. I could get by for 3 or so months with what I have in storage but that's just not enough if things really get rough. (Is it ever going to be enough?) I'm on well water so my #1 concern is power for the pump and water storage. In the process of trying to find the perfect generator for my needs along with decent storage vessels. Hurricane Irene exposed my weaknesses for storage. Filled the tub with water the night before (just for terlit flushing) but the damn thing was empty in the morning...stupid stopper! It gets tough to stockpile ammo when you have a safe full of hungry guns!!! Someone brought up having cigs for the long run in a similar thread, never thought about that, figured I'd have lots more to worry about than my hourly nic-fix...I wonder how long of a shelf life they have...

Get one of these for your bathtub. They're dirt cheap and you'll be good to go if there's a next time. WaterBOB®: emergency drinking water storage

My bug out location is just a couple of miles from home it has a well also. I'm planning on getting a hand pump for it in the next couple of months just in case. I've also thought about putting some sort of cistern with another hand pump to collect rain water for irrigation. I think that would take care of most of my water needs?
