So in my march toward being prepared I have come to the conclusion that I will most likely have to bug in the event of SHTF. This can obviously change but that is Plan 1. As the title suggest I live in a condo but I am thinking about getting a generator. Since its a condo and I don't want to annouce that I have a generator I am looking at some of the quite models. Looking at some of the Honda models they are rated at 59db which is equilavent to a conversation at 1m. My concern is that even though thats pretty quite I live on the ground level and the unit would be visible on my patio. Any thoughts on how I could possibly disguise the generator? The other issue is that my back door would have to be open to allow for the cable and therefore could create an entry point if people become desperate. My other thought is I have a front room with a window. I thought about putting the generator in that room with the window open and use a fan running to clear the CO. The window is secured in a way that I can control how much it can open. If I took heavy vizqueen and weaterstripping to seal up the doorway I was wondering if carbon monoxide poisoning was still an issue. If I were to do it i would also make sure I have a CO detector. In searching for ideas I came across a site where someone set-up a similar experience but was wondering if anyone here has tried this?
