?Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ?Wow! What a Ride!? ~ Hunter S. Thompson

I use food grade calcium chloride for one of the ingredients to remineralizing the RO. I think its $7 per pound but it lasts a long time because I don't use much. I have noticed it takes moisture from the air and gets clumpy after a while.

Before I had a generator I would use hot water bottles during an outage. I have never run out of hot water (wood stove)... but if I ever do I need to remember this trick.
