stockpiling food for shtf

  1. Food and water
    I couldn't believe it. My favorite was the 25 pounds, assorted types including rice for $150. I have just taken it for granted because my Walmart has been OK but WTF?

    Pick five canned foods for a rotation system. Several years ago I phased out a lot of my canned foods. This was due to various reasons, one of which my children being grown and moving out on their own. With the Coronavirus plague I realized phasing out my canned foods stockpile is was a...
  3. Coronavirus
    Unless my Governor extends the lockdown, my state is set to open up at the end of the week. I fear that this will lead to an explosion of new cases in my otherwise nearly untouched state...and that the same thing will happen across the country as things open up. I have been bugged in since...

    At 10:30 this morning, I went into town to visit Sam’s Club. About 2 weeks ago, the line to enter the store, extended from the door to over 1000 ft. I expected the worst. I was completely surprised to find the store relatively empty of customers. Almost ALL the store shelves were completely...

    Regardless of what store I go to I see the same thing - people with their eyes wide open grabbing food off the shelves. Their eyes are open wide as if trying to take in every detail. The only time I see this is when a hurricane is approaching. But in this case however, the storm has lasted...

    Hi all, I'm interested to know if y'all have suggestion for how we can keep tabs on the food supply chain. I live in a large city. People have made runs on the supermarkets, but they're still being restocked and we could get fresh produce if we chose to go shopping (which we have not, since it...

    New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo declared a state of emergency in New York on Saturday. Now it is just a matter of time before people in major cities start panic buying. New York Los Angeles Houston... etc. Unless Coronavirus dies down fast, we are going to see millions of people panic...

    Just about everything that has been predicted over the years has come true, except transmission is moving much slower than expected. China was source of outbreak China has been dishonest about infection and death rates. China censored news CDC and WHO dropped the ball - did not declare...

    Maybe America is getting ready for this covid19 after all. A week ago I ordered a couple big boxes from Mountainhouse just to top off the freeze dried food. Just got an email that they canceled the order due to demand and not being able to keep up with their inventory, they gave me 10% off the...

    Please report grocery store stocks, and if you observe panic buying. I am going through my youtube subscriptions, people who never once before uttered a word about prepping are saying they are buying extra food and water. I go to the grocery store about once a week. Since I live in a rural...

    Hey guys, I got to thinking (I know, thinking is dangerous ). What things are so inexpensive that any self respecting prepper would be ashamed not to stock up on? And not just ant things, but really very versatile stuff that can be used for many many uses. I'm thinking kosher salt ( a...

    The plan is to organize two serving Mountain House freeze dried pouches in five gallon buckets. Then label the buckets with a piece of duct tape. Breakfast Side dishes Main entrees Thoughts, suggestions?

    Review of the Mountain House Breakfast Skillet. Probably the worst mountain house meal I have tried so far. Very bland with an overpowering potato taste.
  15. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I posted a video on youtube about stockpiling freeze dried food. Several people commented that mountain house pouches are now rated at 30 years instead of 7 years. Does anyone have the details as to when and why mountain house extended the life of their pouches? Did mountain house change...

    Hey guys... Well I ordered my first kit (50 1gal bags/50 - 300cc OAs) from discountmylarbags (best prices I found and even better when I used the site discount). Anyways... I'm picky about oatmeal... not sure why but I am. Found that I can get 10# boxes of quaker oatmeal from Jet.com for...

    Lately I've noticed a number of online ads and suggested products on Amazon from "Bannock Outdoors" offering what appears to be camping/LTS food pouches. Anyone know more info about them? Most search terms I could think of just yielded a bunch of hits for Bannock bread. Though I did find their...

    Is plain rice as opposed to rice mixes (like rice a roni) preferrable? I know the cost is lower, yet I always read that we should serve what our family is used to. There's also the issue of convenience of a rice mix. Storage of smaller mixes is also a factor. I looked in the forum, but...

    Sorry if this is a lame question but I am looking to diversity some of my food supply and have been browsing the Mointain House website and have some odd questions. 1) The MH site shows the servings per #10 can but how big or what are the approx dimensions of the cans themselves? 2) If you...

    I recently received my free sample from Wise foods. Let me start by saying that the customer rep who contacted me about my interests in Wise foods, was not only polite, but also offered to send me the Camping Food instead of the home food(after I explained to him my use of food for a go-bag.) I...
