    The state is letting us buy specific hurricane-preparedness items tax exempt this week. I want a "self-powered" (i.e. wind-up) flashlight and radio. Does any one know of the best store to pick these up at (WalMart, Bass Pro Shop, etc)?.

    believe it or not, I got one of those flashlights from Kohls, but I believe walmart carries them too... WalMart also is carrying a flashlight that will take C, D or AA batteries, I've got to get back to get one of those because no matter what batteries we have in the drawer, they aren't what the flashlight needs--I'm thinking this one would solve that problem!
