New prepping purchase… Open till recently most of my prepping purchases I have not been very big ticket items. I guess some of the knives that I bought from vendors on this forum we're between 200 and $400. Lotta money for a knife somewhat safe. But I don't view these as prepping supplies, because I use them all the time Today I saw at the Cabela's in Oklahoma City, that these generators were a very good deal. I'll search yielded favorable reviews on these cheap Chinese made generators, and supposedly repair and replacement parts are available. Yes I agree that a big Generac, Yamaha, or Honda generator is a much better piece of equipment. But I'm tickled pink. Being a backpack or in a canoeist for a long time, this is my first generator.
