Natural of manmade disaster? A few days without power or SHTF? Doesn't matter.

I ordered a bucket of 200 freeze dried meal servings (super long shelf life) to my preps.

Good replies by all. I focus on water ammo and tips for bow hunting. Plenty of game where I live. 3 week supply of food in case of nuc or bio attack. In a SHTF scenario I would leave my apt as its undefensable and head to the woods. rydd2 show great heads up on knowing wells in the area if needed. A group of friends and family have a plan, and list of what each will provide as well as alternative means of communication(cell shortwave and CB radio and 2 sat phones).

When I went to the supermarket last week they had cans of Chef Boyardee on sale and picked 10 of them up.

Picked up 2 more cases of bottled water from Costco.

If you do it slow and steady it can be very cost effective.

Looking thru this thread and a few others, there are a few things I thought of that I havn't seen on to many's list;

Duct Tape, the universal tool
Zip ties. almost as usefull as duct tape
Bungees, for fastening items to large for zip ties.
Ziplock bags. for keeping tinder and matches dry, and in a pinch as a canteen.
I am also including nails and screws in my Bug out kit. If I need to make a shelter it's faster than paracord lashing.
Aluminium foil great for storing excess food after cooking, good to make a wind break for a camp stove, caa be used in place of a pot in a pinch.

i was in the northeast here a couple years ago when the power grid took a giant crap.

no electricity for 5 days here in this part of country. no big deal. worst part was no AC, and it was the hottest part of summer. many stores were still open if you needed food/water. couldn't get gas though, as pumps are all electronic nowadays.


i'll tell you though, that was the quietest 5 days i can remember. no traffic, no airplanes overhead, you could see the stars at night without all the light pollution. i did drive around, and it was fun with no traffic lights. it was kinda nice in that regard.


just ate canned crap, and ho ho's until the power came back on ;)
