  1. I carry a second Optima 6V with me. I have two of them because I have two 6V cars, so it's essentially free. And, they are light enough to move between cars easily and fit in the battery box with the primary battery.

  3. I have the same, er, affliction. I have yet to catalog my books formally, but I'd guess I have 1,500 or so.
