As you know I’m trying to improve on my stored fuel of all types. Last check it was adding Kerosene for lighting and before that it was getting a tank of propane for the Buddy heater and propane stove. Well today it was gas and I wanted to store real non-ethanol gas so I headed out to a little country store/gas station that had real gas and it was 14 cents a gallon cheaper than in town!
So I filled up the Kia, I’m not sure how she will react getting to drink the “good stuff”, plus another couple of the gas cans for storage. The store also offers propane tanks cheaper than in town so I know where I will be doing most of my fuel shopping from here on out. I’m so excited that I can start filling up the RV’s gas tanks with real gas at this price. I really want to do a little traveling and camping this year and if the world doesn’t blowup and gas price keep coming down I should be able to manage at least a couple of trips in 2013.
Fuel is going to be one of my goals next year, especially after watching the fuel lines after Sandy. I think it shows how critical having extra fuel safely stored will be for at least any short term disaster. My Kia mini-van will make a great taxi/shopping vehicle if we have to downsize to one car and ration fuel. It will be the most economical as a people mover of all the family vehicles per gallon of gas.
Picked up some pedilyte, Zinc oxide for any sick kids or skin irritations and some nice Pork rib end roasts for the freezer. Wed. I’ll get some t-shirts that are on sale and a 5 rolls of nickles before the PTBs start debasing the metals and nickels become collectables like the pre 64 coins.
All in all it looks like 2012 is going to be a super year for me getting all my prepping goals done and then some.
