    Default Two is One and One is None

    You'll hear that phrase a lot when you're among preppers. It's something to be taken seriously because if you only have one of something, if it breaks, now you no longer have it. So it's a good idea to have a backup. We take it to heart here, and we have a lot of redundancy build into our preps. Today, I took it a step further.

    I now have a back up generator to our back up generator.

    It was simply too good of a deal to pass up, 7550W with electric start. It does need a new battery, but it starts right up on the first pull.




    If you don't currently have a generator, it's a buyer's market, because all the formerly panicked grasshoppers are selling them because Covid is over.

    Good deal. I have my main generator that's 10k that powers the whole house. However if that ever has a problem, I have a 3500 that can power just the fridge and deep freeze to prevent food from spoiling, and provide some light in the house. I think I paid $150 for the little one on some sale. Parents and a friend have borrowed the little one on occasion to keep their fridges and freezers running in power loss when I was on my main generator. So it's also handy to have a good one, and one that you can loan out.

    Sweet! That's the same generator that I have. I also need a new battery, but I've never had a problem with it. Powers the whole house, minus the hot water heater and the baseboard heaters. If I shut everything else down, it will even run the hot water heater.

    How'd you score that and what was the price, if I can be nosy?

    I have a couple small generators.

    I don't drink much beer but if the case of MGD runs out due to supply issues, I have a backup case of Blue Moon.
    Like Streaker, I also have a back up to the backup. Yeungling.

The backhoe was useless in shale or dense clay soil.
