Ordered brand new spigots for all my Aquatainers. Not as costly as I though it'd be...about $6 each.

The food dehydrator is running and I'm busy slicing apples and french prunes.

Refreshed the water in all of our Aquatainers and replaced the old spigots with the newer style.

Old on left, new on right...

They seem a little beefier than the old style. My old ones had cracks up the threads and these new ones seem a little thicker.

I got mine from https://www.campmor.com for $4.99 each but they're out of stock now.

You can get them directly from Reliance Products but they're a little more expensive: https://www.relianceproducts.com/pro...ements/73.html

Got a solar cell phone charger as well. Also got a cord of red oak for the BBQ and fireplace. That will last us all year since it doesn't really ever get cold here.
