Effective midnight (Alaska time), I'm shutting off the generator, not using gas or diesel for anything, and I'm going to rely solely on renewable resources. (as if it were several years after SHTF). I realize it's not totally accurate, since I have food and pre-cut (chainsaw) wood, but I'm going to try not to use any of it for a week. We'll see how it goes. Keep in mind that this is not like camping for a week, since we all bring supplies with us intended for a weeks' trip. This is a spur of the moment idea, which has not garnered any preparation at all. I have a cabin, I have candles, I have a cross-cut saw, and I have some food available for foraging (I'll try to stay out of the root cellar-except of course for the raspberry wine... gotta have some indulgence) Additionally, I will use store bought toilet paper in the outhouse... that's one thing in an Alaskan winter you HAVE to prepare for.
