make a long story short, i got real complacent on my preps a few years back. hurricane irma came and i found myself with may pants down. 4 hours into running my generator it died. i was unable to revive it. i made do with a 400 watt inverter and a car battery for a couple of days till i managed to borrow a tiny HF gen set. i went nutz buying generators. 1st I bought a little HF tail gator. got it all broken in, changed out the plug etc. then i got a HF storm cat NIB for $60 on the local craigs list. then i got one of the old blue ones, again NIB for $50 and then it got worse. i bought a homegear 950I inverter generator. then i bought its twin the sportsmans gen1000I. and at this point you'd think i had enough. but i managed to not buy another generator for almost 2 years. then 4 months ago i went off the wagon and got champion 3500 dual fuel. I told my self I'd stop. I told my self this is enough. I lied. tonight while doing a delivery a new customer had a nib never opened champion 2000 inverter genny in his foyer. I asked about it. he bought it for Karen which never came and tried to return it to amazon. they didn't want it back BUT REFUNDED HIM ANYWAY. and what came out of my mouth? "what do you want for it?" him "$250" me "i'll be back in 10 mins with cash" its on my patio right now breaking in. I have 7 generators. SEVEN. wtf am i going to do with SEVEN GENERATORS???
