  • Just a friendly fyi Bret,

    Back in '09 I discovered six of those little green bottles of propane (like are on the shelves of, for instance, $ General) and a Coleman Northstar lantern, as well as a single burner are good things to have not thrown out after being the only items not to've sold at my previous summer's end yard sale.

    The 20 pounds of rice and the 25 pounds of beans I had in the pantry came in right handy too.

    I was living in an apartment then, and for awhile I was pretty popular - or maybe it was because of out of the 22 toilets in the apartments, mine was the only one flushing after the nine days it took for the newly restored electricity to begin revealing burst waterpipes.

    I was on, admittedly, my last bottle that last day so I'll not venture how popular I'd remained had the cannibalism set in. Oh, my apartment never went below 72.
