For 85 bucks? Almost seems too good to be true.

Sawem

I ran into these early on last year...Not worth the price in a true long term storage plan...Sure, OK for the weekender, but not for those who plan on the multi- year supply.

I have found bunch of good things at Costco. The other day I picked up The Encyclopedia of Country Living. A few months back I picked up another book, the name escapes me, but it talks about planting, harvesting, foraging, animal care, first aid, herbs, natural medicine, what wood to use in your stove, wood stove cooking, giving birth at home, preserving, and other topics.

+1 post, some people have time issues; good for variety

while your at CostlyCO, get these, 2x 50 lbs. saxcks of white rice
Then go to Tractor Supply (TSC) and get a 50 gal. STEEL trash can
At Wallymart get a pack of 55 gal. contractor bags

Put yuor bag in the can and then the rice bags whole) in the can too.
Sprinkle the top with diatomaceous earth, close the bag, put on steel lid
For less than $100, you just prepped 400 servings of calories (400 food units)

don't worry about Kahn, he's a preparedness MBA
"Master of Bubba Arts"

He don't only trusts the Force
The Force trusts him

As a matter of fact

You can buy all that for less than half of what Costco is charging and put it a bucket yourself.
He's right some folks just aren't this far along


WWBD? As a matter of fact Chuck Norris tips his hat to Kahn

folks, please check the calorie count on each of those servings. The highest calorie meal is the western stew and that comes in at 241 calories... most everything else is 80-200 calories / meal. So please take that into consideration when planning how much you'll actually need to sustain yourselves. You can live off 800-900 calories daily, it probably wouldn't be pleasant though.

Hope that helps! Cheers!

It just needs a few servings of meat/game to bring the calorie count right up to about 2000.

My Great Grandfather was the same, except his daily "vitamin drink" .......

...was whiskey. (Another good addition to the prep pantry)
