For the fifth of my 25 Undead Christmas presents I want a SolarGoPack
In the first days after the end you are going to need some source of power. Batteries are great, but they only last so long. Even before you are ready to roll out of your stage 1 location, you are going to want one of these SolarGoPack backpacks, and more likely you’ll want one for each member of your team.
There is no more coal fired power plants and even if you have a generator, the noise will bring the undead in for miles around. Then, when you are ready to roll out, you’ll be able to charge flashlight batteries and small electronics like a radio so you might get some heads up about the worst hit areas.
If you want a taste of what is to come once you leave your stage 1 location try camping without a flashlight at night and see what your field of vision is when your waving around a flaming torch. Very easy for the undead to sneak up on you. What you need is a way to charge up batteries while your hiking across country.
That’s where SolarGoPack backpacks come in. You can charge up your batteries and be able to have a nice focused beam of light to shine into the darkness when you hear something in the woods. Is it a deer, or something more sinister? Now you will know before it’s right on top of you.
Okay, and there is also your MP3 player so you don’t go crazy. But be reasonable and only put one earbud in, you need to hear what’s around you.
And while you are buying the solar backpack, make sure you pick up a SB6019 Solar Dynamo Flashlight or two. They are always going to work. You can charge them in the sun and crank them when you need to if you run out of juice at night.
