What comes easy to city folk, is harder to obtain to those living off-grid. Today we ran out of AA batteries for our radio. It is our only electronic device for entertainment besides cell phones without streaming internet. We always purchase bulk battery packs monthly and prices went up, while searching for bargains, time ran out and now an extra trip to town will be required. These needs become critical when it comes to lighting, water, firewood and even jewelry glue. Having extra basic needs hand is must for us living in the woods. Consider your daily comforts today and what you have on hand to enjoy them day in, day out just in case your local sources disappeared.
