Generators are Big This Week 

By Jauretsi

If you have experienced the Sandy Storm this week in the United States, you’re probably without any power for a few days. If you have loved ones in the area, consider purchasing a generator for the next few days of blackout. What better gift than light and electricity? There’s several options within different price points, for example the Tradespro 850/1200 watt 2 stroke portable generator (bottom right) runs only $100. The DuroMax 4400 Watt Quiet Portable Electric Start RV Gas Powered Camping Generator (top image) is going for $599. Then there is the more deluxe Pentagon Tools Emergency RV Portable 8500 Watt Peak Quiet Gas Generator (bottom left) which sells for a whopping $720. If none of these tickle your interest, check out various other generator models on eBay. If you don’t need a generator for this particular disaster, consider nabbing one for the hell of it. If not for disaster mode, then perhaps for generating a party deep in the middle of nowhere… lights and music, anyone? Isn’t that freedom worth investing in?

Be Prepared for Frankenstorm!
By Jenny Bahn
As Hurricane Sandy (nicknamed Frankenstorm) bore down on the East Coast, we were all reminded how important it is to be prepared. Food and water are just the starters; there are countless other things to consider (just like our parents always told us). If putting a kit together on your own is too much of a task, there are several people on eBay who are keen to do it for you. For about $52, you can buy a 72-hour emergency kit, complete with things you’d never even think you’d need. If you’re in the market to make your own, take a look at these backpacks from Archival in which to hold all your gear. They used waxed fabrics, making them durable and weather-ready.
