  1. Food and water
    I dug up a thread from 2014 about the LTS of tea. Mylar w/ O2A or vacuum sealing was the post. The post went sideways with who likes what tea, price per pound, etc and never really came to a conclusion as to the advantages and drawbacks to each method. In the intervening 6 years, I’m sure some...
  2. Food and water
    Back in 2012 I scoured this forum and took some advice on long term storage of nuts. General advice was they don't last more than a year, however if you read through enough posts from MikeK and other find enough exceptions, there were some gold nuggets of "well, you COULD do this to maximize...
  3. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I'm relatively new to prepping, but I've done a decent amount of research (I'm not going in blind, at least). I'm wondering about the basics. -What's the best water storage method, or what are things NOT to do/common mistakes? -I have started sealing food in Mylar bags - what's the best way to...
  4. Vendor Deals
    Dehydrated food with a 15 + year shelf life. Taste great, longer shelf life, more affordable than MRE's. Try 12 servings for free to see if you agree. (just pay shipping.) Visit us at: http://StuffHappens.mygofoods.com MRE's are great. I recommend having as many as you feel necessary. Let's...
  5. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I keep my home canned food out on pantry shelves and I keep some short term rotatable foods like cereal, canned vegies etc on those shelves. My family members have seen that level of my storage. Now I have run out of space for 'hidden' storage built into the house. Under stairwells and a...

    I have read threads here on LTS of powdered milk and believe I can do it. I just purchased a few of these bags of milk and wanted some advice as to the potential for their making the LTS cut. They are 26oz bags for 8quarts of milk each. They have a best by date of 6/12 I know that is close to...

    i was at Publix last night and right next to the weekly specials was a standee of this. HEATER MEALS. with a picture of different disasters at the top, and a brief blurb about the product and how it has an extended shelf life, and its own heater element, and its good for keeping on a boat, or...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Lots of posts wanting to know what's the best of this or that and we all have our opinion, including me. So...I decided to do a head to head comparison on price, amount of servings or quantity for the major sellers and see what the differences were. Today I did common Dairy products. And no, I...

    Since there has been a shortage of Cocoa I've been trying to find a good supplier for my annual buy and had very little luck with very high prices. I was searching and then ran across this place. http://www.cocoasupply.com/ Their prices are way below what I'm getting here for organic and...
  10. Urban Survival
    I am ready to start storing some larger (for me anyway) containers of food, beginning with rice and beans. I think that what I want are the food grade 5 gallon buckets. I have reviewed some previous/similar forum discussions, and I know that many members state that they are able to get these...
  11. Food and water
    I spent the better part of a whole day, sore lower back, plenty of sweat and great satisfaction several weeks ago moving a couple hundred jars of my finest canned item to my BOL, along with my 5 gal buckets, dry goods and canned veggies. Last night I realized that If it gets to cold this winter...

  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    i know a few people who although would like the insurance of long term food (up to 30-40 years), they believe it would be far too expensive.. I need to put together a list detailing what an average adult would need to store in the short term (per year) for example what to store for the first 3...
