Okay... here's the question. And this is directed to those of us that don't live on a 40 acre ranch with climate controlled out buildings or a root cellar/ bomb shelter, or have a basement. I'm talking about the average Joe that as a limited amount of space they call "their own".
Where do you store all the survival stuff? 6 month to 2 years worth of food? Where the heck are you storing it? That is a huge volume of material. You can't store it in an uncontrolled environment like the garage. In the winter you run the risk of freezing and bursting cans, bottels etc., and in the summer you run the risk of bursting due to heat. Obviously the dry goods don't fall into this question but even dry goods need to be nitrogen charged and hermetically sealed to be truly safely preserved. Nothing worse than going for the 5 gallong bucket of rice to find it rotted because it wasn't sealed.
Have you devoted part of or a whole room of your house to stockpiles? And if you have the requisite 2 years of food supplies, how are you going to move it when it come time to bug out? Or are the ones with the 2 year supply the same ones that will hunker down and ride out the storm?
To not stand against injustice is to stand for it.
Don't confuse my personality and my attitude.
My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.
