    DH and I have ordered many times from Emergency Essentials - Be Prepared Emergency Preparedness Food Storage Their MAXIMUM shipping rate is $12.00 (via UPS) and that's amazing. Their prices are very competitive, also. Out of curiousity, we ate a few of the MREs, that we purchased, to see if they were any good. We found them to be very tasty. My husband has a finicky palate, so when HE says that the MREs are good, you can bet the farm that they are BETTER THAN THAT!!!

    as far as water is concerned you can make solar stills quite easy and the water produced is distilled, ie pure.

    For water storage, I purchased at a year end clearance sale from Wally World one of those inflatable pools. There are many sizes to choose from and you can set them up rather quickly. Before the water in the house stops working fill it up with the garden hose.
    A cheap tarp supported with 2x4's near the pool can catch an huge amount of rain water. The pool kits even come with a filter so if you have a backup generator or a solar powered aerator you can keep the water oxygenated. Would have plenty of water for bathing or flushing the toilets. Just be sure to filter or treat the water before drinking or cooking.

    Packaged "survival rations" are good...from any of a number of companies, but a basic staple of our food storage is 5 gallon food grade buckets with rice and dried beans. They were about our first food prep and, besides adding basic calories and bulk, have a surprising amount of needed nutrients. A variety of spices and the ability to add fresh fish and game gives one a good amount of variety.

    Speaking of fish and game...ammo and fishing gear should also be big storage items...

    Regardless of what you saw in the video, it's ALWAYS a good idea to have a reserve food supply, some extra supplies like toilet paper, tooth paste, soap and other toiletry items. In addition, you should also have a good long gun, be it shotgun or rifle and some extra ammo.
    Right now, I believe time is getting short. I have MRE's and freeze dried food, but the best way to go right now is with canned food and non-perishable stuff. (crackers, sugar, pasta, rice, etc). Buy the stuff you will eat, whether it's chili, stew, raviolli, spam, veggies, whatever. And as you build it up, start rotating it out and using it. The shelf life will far exceed the "Best By" or Sell By" dates on the cans. Foods higher in acid, like tomato paste will have a shorter life. Don't buy dented cans, where the inner coating can be damaged. Don't buy sale items that are priced to go out the door with shorter dates. Many canned goods are even good for a couple of years past the dates. As long as the can is not bulging, the top popped up or the food smells bad or funny, it will generally be safe to eat. Dried Beans and rice can be left in the original package and placed in zip lock bags for extra protection.
    Now, GO GET STARTED!!!! This is important. And don't forget. WATER, WATER, WATER!!!!!

    Sound Advice, have been doing this for some 5 years or more.

  11. As my DW is fond of saying, "Remember it wasn't raining when Noah started to build the Ark". Home canned goods alone, breads, cakes, meats, veggies, and de-hydrated fruits we have at least 6 months on that alone, not to mention bulk rice, beans, bullets and Band-Aids
