I would look at a soar panel to help with electrical needs, be it light, refrigeration, recharging batteries on whatever gadgets you have.
Having everything on a computer is great but if your computer craps out...then what? It might seem old fashion to you, but print important things out,
make a 3 ring binder of valuable information that you think you will need.
You can even laminate it then to protect it, or not and use it for fire starting material, after you master whatever you had on it.
Get a Wood stove, coal stove...whatever stove you can use with plenty of coal or wood you need to power it, in abundance around you...so you do not
need to pay for it, it is supplied my mother nature.
Take a good hard look at what you need to know how to do, and grab a book, read about it, and do it!!!
Get off your butt and go outside and practice what you are learning to do. Test everything you learn in all types of weather in every type of climate
of the year. Meaning rain or shine, wet or dry...hot or cold, get out and apply what your are wanting to learn, and some things work better than
others in different weather/times of the year.
If you backpack out, carry everything with you. note what you used and didn't use ..what you needed or did not need...you will get ideas and what
better time to try them out, than while your actually out doing it.
Your mind is your best and most powerful tool, use it, keep it sharp and in good working order....never let it be just a hat rack.
my .02 cents for you
