    energy 034.jpg energy 032.jpg Crazy idea but a two inch aluminum round bar stock on top a an electric heater may just make a good thermal heat sink....right.

    I picked up a Prius battery for $40 and it appears all of the cells are okay. Right now it is configured for 230vdc but can be wired for 12-24-36vdc. I ordered a device that will charge and discharge each cell and test for bad cells. 100_0016.JPG 100_0014.JPG

    I just bought a new used Chevy Bolt pure electric car with 4.500 miles on the clock. I'm getting ready for the next big oil shock. 100_0017.JPG

    Picked up 3rd edition Survival Medicine Handbook by Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy, so now I have a better idea on antibiotic protocols. Got a couple varieties of knee sleeves to help with workout and recovery. 3 sets of the old military skis set up with bindings for any type of boot. Last couple trips to Costco, but purchased plenty of vittles and AA and AAA batteries. Can never have enough of them.

    Library was a good start, but since my dad was and I am a blacksmith there should probably be a good reference on blacksmithing, and I also drilled a well up near Show Low so there should probably also be a reference to well drilling.

    haven't really done a lot of extra prepping lately. been to busy at work and taking care of the wife. Pretty much my usual monthly stuff that gets shipped to us. Been dragging my feet on ordering a Royal berkey filter. Was waiting on my tax refund. But now I can't find one for less than $450. Hopefully the corona panic will pass soon and they'll be available again.
