I sure wish this tiny lantern was still made & available.
I would buy a dozen to pass out amongst family members.

ANYONE KNOW OF ONE SIMULAR?




River Rock K2 LED Lantern

This tiny powerhouse features two brightness settings, a flashing mode, and a small green 'locating' indicator to remind you where it is when it's off.

Straight-forward in its operation, the light's multiple settings are available through a single push-button activation switch located on the front side of the lantern. With a durable design that incorporates rubber end caps, an aluminum body, and water resistant seals, the River Rock K2 Lantern is suitable for outdoor use in very demanding environments. And becomes a useful wide-area flashlight by simply unscrewing the top cap.

Features:
Philips Lumileds Luxeonģ K2 LED rated at 85 lumens*
Aluminum body and rubber end cap construction
Run time (High): 5 hours maximum light, 16 hours useful light
Run time (Low): 35 hours
Run time (Flashing): 35 hours
Run time (Locator Beacon): 2 years (flashes every 5 seconds)
Operates on three AA batteries
Weight: 7.0 ounces (with batteries)
Extremely water-resistant
Removable top cap for conversion to flashlight
Dimensions: 5.1 inches high, 2.1 inches diameter

Bought a handful of these tiny inexpensive key chain sized flashlights.
Pretty impressive for $3 each

And, a couple more inexpensive fixed blades

A few more fence posts added where I will affix livestock panels I bought at a yard sale for a temporary fence , insulated boxes are now in place over the exterior spigots to help winterize them . Waterlines used for irrigation are shut down . Repairs made today to the electric fence to keep it working . More pot holes filled with asphalt on the driveway . Started planting the Chesnook garlic, more to plant . 320 daffodils planted around the fruit trees and grape vines ( one more grape vine and maybe 30 more daffodil bulbs to plant as they are poisonous for voles that will eat the roots of young fruit trees).

Put pipe insulation over the water supply for the livestock. The pipe rises about 2 1/2 feet, and bare pipe doesn't fare so well when it freezes. Speaking of, we have a freeze warning for tomorrow night. Will have to make sure the heat tape on the pipes in the well house is plugged in.

Those Camilus blades are actually pretty good. My husband is really picky about the sharpness of his blades (first thing he does when he gets a new blade is to sharpen it) and he's been satisfied with the Camilus knives.

Got the hay I picked up yesterday unloaded from the truck - 6 bales to "the girls" (The female goats and the cattle - to include the bull calf) loaded into the feed room and stacked 3 bales high; and 2 bales to the male goats.

After stacking the hay, we'll see how my shoulder feels tomorrow.

Pulled about a 15lb DIY BOL raised pork belly out of the freezer.
Going to have a family feed this weekend.
Cannot decide which appetizer to do BBQ'ed bacon wrapped scallops or just BBQ chunks?

Cleared out my water bottles out of the truck SHTF box in prep for freezing. Re packed & reorganized the truck supplies for better access.

Did the grocery run right after work, so I wouldn't have to go back into town tomorrow. That will give us time to do some of the work around the homestead that we haven't had a chance to do. That is, AFTER I go to pick up our little doe from her "hot date" and bring her back home...and HOPE that the hot date will lead to kids in the spring.

Bought a tilt bed trailer.
With the rails on, it will haul a hefty 3 cords of split firewood.

And, a couple more inexpensive fixed blades

I bought a bunch of those lights a couple/few years ago at just under $3 each. They put out a great beam. I use the heck out of them and have them everywhere. Vehicles, desks, bags, etc. Its also the light I use for my work.
The work one and the one I would carry in a belt holster (recently changed that to an 18650 light) get a good workout. They tend to last a good year before the switch gets a little finicky and flickery. At that price, no big deal. Just swap it out for one of the new ones I have stashed. The belt clip is a little brittle and I tend to break them. Clumsy. A leather working friend made me a nice little holster which solved that problem. Also, the tiny screws holding the clip on tend to get loose. Locktite or even superglue takes care of that.
My new pile is getting a little low and when I've looked to order more I found the price to be higher. From a couple dollars more to a good bit more. Some places are selling them as much as $15.
I didn't think to check before posting to see if you had a link for where you got yours. If not, may I ask?

Ordered this old school KISS book for the BOL library.
SHTF, Comm's will be critical.



Some good info on ham radio antenna lightening strike protection.

http://www.arrl.org/lightning-protection

We lost our 1st BOL base station ham set due to amateur mistakes I made in the set-up & a lightening strike cooked it.

I have read that you can put that ground strap in place of the gasket in military ammo cans to have a better Faraday cage. Plastic bag the contents inside and then bag the can for additional watering proofing.
