From Trash To Treasure: Make An Old Generator Work Again - So, what happens when that generator stops working. If you are like most people you aren't checking the generator every month. You may not even be doing basic maintenance on it. The generator just turns on when you need it and off when you don't.

We are masters of trash! We throw it all away. Its no wonder we dont throw our own kids away when they dont work properly. 

Access to bigger and better products is part of the reason we are always throwing away for the next best thing. Well, that pattern could come to an end in the future and what are we going to do then? Do you know how to repair things? Do you know what to scavenge in this world? 

Generators and Parts

When the storm rolls in and the winds and rains threaten, there is a certain confidence one has when they know they can enlist the help of a generator. When the grid is compromised and most people are without power, beholden to the speed of the power companies, its nice to have some backup. I

love flipping that switch once I get my generator powered up. It has been one of the best investments in emergency preparedness that I have ever made.

So, what happens when that generator stops working. If you are like most people you aren’t checking the generator every month. You may not even be doing basic maintenance on it. The generator just turns on when you need it and off when you don’t. 

Medical

Every office in America has a medical kit. They have to! This means every office you scavenge could have potential medical supplies. Get after them. HR often locks up the pain killers from the employees. You might look in there for more meds, as well. 

Fuel

No matter what type you can get hands-on or where you can siphon or scavenge it from, focus on fuel. Fuel makes fire easier and ti can make heating your family easier, too. 

Not to mention it could be your ticket out of danger in a vehicle. Not to mentioned people will go crazy over fuel if they need it! Great barter item.
