I'm happy to say we have everything on your list. We do have different brands of items. The flashlight we have chosen is the Olight S1R, S2R, and H1R. Yet, we have the ability to charge them via solar panel or bio-stove. We have tried to add redundant systems that allows us to still have function equipment if one fails.

In your case, you went through a major financial collapse to get you motivated. In our case, we had a strong storm system come through and take out power to our area for a week (nothing on the scale you went through), but it got us preparing. By the winter of that same year when we lost power for three days due to an ice storm, we didn't miss a beat. We were able to be back up and running in 15 minutes and stayed nice and warm.

The sad part for us and I would assume most people, it takes going through a crisis to get you motivated to be prepared.

So basically, its 1) Light, 2) Heat, 3) Cooking and 4) Power source for equipment.

Got it - Thanks !
