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!).
