    Then add to the above list here for us please!
    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint - Isaiah 40:31

    Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. ~

    Um...ok. I take exception to number forty six:

    46. Flashlights/LIGHTSTICKS & torches, "No. 76 Dietz" Lanterns
    A headlamp with solar-rechargeable AA batteries makes so much more sense to me than a flashlight or lightstick. It gives you hands-free light wherever you turn your head and has adjustable brightness to match the task at hand. Walking on a trail or preparing dinner...hands free.

    I didn't even know that they make wild plant books that are edible. I could see how this could come in handy in a SHTF scenario.

    You got me. . . . books about edible wild plants. So there.

    You know what we need? A nit-pick thread!

    Perhaps a link? Father's Day is coming up! Last year we got him a headlamp, but alas it wasn't solar batteries. (More than 1 in the house is good too). TIA.

    A good portion, if not all of stored batteries should be rechargable, and make sure you have a solar battery charger or two as well.

    BEST RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES + AC CHARGER

    AAA for headlamps

    Product Description
    Worldwide voltage (110-240V)Charges up to 4 AA or 4 AAA cellstery, the next evolutionary step for batteries into the 21st century. eneloop is a totally new type of battery, which satisfies in a unique way the needs and expectations of the consumers


    Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable batteries are the leading edge now. I stockpiled mostly AA and some AAA for my headlamps and portable radios. Best bang for the buck. Best to research the solar battery chargers and select one that charges both AA and AAA size batteries. Maybe let him decide on the best solar charger for his needs.

    My latest purchase . . . black-out window covering. 50% off at Jo-Ann Fabrics. I can do a whole window-filled room for $22 with the material I purchased today (8 yards).

    Good call! Thx! That's one item with a ton of uses, but easily overlooked.
