I went looking at sportmans guide.com as I get the flyers and email updates and they have some great buys on on the Camp Chef propane oven combo for under $200.00. A new Camp Chef product is just the oven with no burners on top for $152.00. If you already have a little camp stove with burners this might be a good option for backup cooking/camping.
They are coming out with those power packs for jumping cars that you can charge with a solar panel. They usually have a small inverter (400-600 watts) a light, radio and some times an air compressor. I have a small power pack that I have used to keep my router or a small 12 V DC fan going during power outages, but I have to charge it via 120 V AC. Being able to charge one of these with solar panels would be great to have on hand. They have one I’m looking to get next month for $80.00, I think this would be a great little gadget for charging the Laptop, phone or run a small fan.
The Big Mr. Heater is on sale for $116.oo and though I have the mid size Mr.Heater, I’d like to have the big one as it has a fan for circulating the heat that runs on batteries or AC power. I was impressed on how well the Mid-size heater did on heating my home during the test I did this last winter and having 2 would give me a backup. I already have the Adapter hose for using a big tank but my local grocery store Paul’s has the little tanks on sale for $2.98 each and I can refill or use the big tank for the oven or the heaters. This is a good time to looking for camping stuff on sale and SportsmanGuide has great service.
The only thing left on the “wish list” will be the propane water heater.
Apmex has a sale on a roll of quarters 90% silver which split the difference on cost between dimes and the 1/2 dollars. So I’ll be getting a roll. That should give me plenty of change for barter for at least a little while and then I’ll get back to buying 100% silver.
UPDATE: The Big Stove was just marked down at Sportsmans guide to $170.00
