RESOURCE ISSUE #2

MORE RESOURCES

Hello from a wonderfully hot July in Gerlach, where this rabbit has a quick holiday-week layover...beautiful playa sunset last night. Getting excited yet?

To the reader: here's your second dose of RESOURCE madness for your preparation planning, to fix some posts and update things we missed. We're catching up on the unsubscribes from those who wrote last week with a new batch - thanks for your patience!

To our resource-vending friends who squeaked into this highly unusual second issue by virtue of the one or two posts we actually missed: next year's deadline will very likely be June 1 again, FYI. Mark your calendar now, and don't miss out!

Back with a regular issue soon...58 days until the burn!

BOGO SOLAR FLASHLIGHT - BUY ONE, GET ONE...

We love the light and the concept - check it out:

"The BoGo Light is a scientific, eco-friendly breakthrough that is making an impact worldwide. BoGo means Buy one, Give one. We want our lights to benefit the less fortunate; therefore, with each light purchased in the developed world, a second identical light will be donated to an organization that will distribute it in the developing world with our direct financial support. Give the Gift of Light, and Help Us Change the World!

Why does light matter? Two billion people living in the developing world rely on kerosene lanterns, candles, and single-use battery flashlights for light at night. Not only are these options expensive, dangerous, and harmful to the environment, they also negatively impact health, education, and security."

TWO PARTICIPANT SUGGESTIONS: LIGHTS LIGHTS LIGHTS

Editorial from a participant: "Ok, so now that you put out the resource issue, all the cats like me who've been distracted have another thing to add. Is there a place we can post additional resources for shtuff? I have two more items about lighting sources:

Polybrite makes hand-held wands, vests, and collars with with bright LED's that run on AA batteries. Burly with great colors. I got mine at Homeland Associates, Inc. at an aviation convention. Wasn't big on the company name, but the people are cool, and the lights are impressive. http://www.homelandassociates.com/products/polybrite.htm

The other's the Pak-Lite, a terrific light on top of a 9-volt with two bright leds. Not cheap (about $25), but lasts forever, as long as you don't lose it. But make sure to have it out if you get on an airplane; they fussed with my bag for 15 minutes before giving it back, light in hand. http://www.9voltlight.com "
