GIFT IDEAS FOR PREPAREDNESS

 
I decided to ‘pull the trigger’ this week and converted some fiat paper into a Garmin GPSMAP 64st. I just received it yesterday and will be ‘playing’ with it today 😉

I also picked up a BaoFeng BF-F8HP Two-Way VHF Radio which I’m looking forward to setting up. If it works out well, I’ll pick up a few more for comms around the property. My Midland radios have been fine, but this BaoFeng has lots more features and capabilities.

The past few days have been brutally cold here while the pellet stove is getting a workout. We have had snow on the ground for a number of weeks already and we’re getting more as I’m looking out the window. Definitely a white Christmas for us this year. Can’t believe it’s just a week away.

 
What have you been up to this week?
