Back the hayday of prepping (50s and 60s) people stored candles, a flashight with extra batteries, and maybe an oil lamp in thier fallout shelter. During the build-up for the dreaded Y2K bug, I bought and undisclosed yet substancial amount amount of Jewish holiday candles that burn for 3 hours, and came in 72 packs. Along with the candles I bought 6 new oil lamps with a number of extra wicks and 2x 55 gallon drums of Kerosene, and almost 300x D batteries for my flashlights. Now for the question............. Been wondering the best route to go in long term survival lighting? Take in mind I have animals. All my flashlights are either Maglites or the old standby Army surplus bent head OD flashlights (not the cheapos made in China either!). Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
