Would you know how?

Back to the topic, ive got several months worth of food. Probably a little more with the food grsde buckets of beans and rice. The rest is mostly canned stuff and a few packs of various freeze dried foods. I might have more than a few months but I like being pessimistic about things, ecspecially preps. I will get specifics on what I have sometime. I think multi vitamins should be included in with these preps too, we probably wont be eating optimal when shit goes down so those will probably be worth investing in.


#97

Heres a good article if youre just getting started.


#98

I agree on multi vitamin or similar to fill the nutritional void. Patriot nurse pushes a product for that as well. Cant remember the name. You cant survive on “dead” food alone.(dehydrated)

That one is good
I use the youngevity beyond tangy tangerine

I use 5 gallon buckets with gamma lids to store food.


Doing it this way has advantages like if you need to move a lot of food fast the bucket has a handle and is not to heavy to move. Each one has a bic lighter with it
1-2 has a water filter in them.
I have 8 with just rice and beans, and one with seasoning and spice. Mix it up.
Don’t stack them on top of one another place1-2 news papers between them.
“Food for thought “ hahaha!


#102

Why do this? Ive always stacked them.


#103

Two reasons.

  1. Eventually the lid will develop a crack. This all depends on how heavy, and how high you stack them. If your light and only stack two high you will most likely be ok. I experienced problems with 4 high all with rice and beans. In two months I had to replace all the bottom gamma lids on 6 of them.
  2. If we are talking about prepping the news paper makes a nice fire starter. That’s also why I have bic lighters taped to the outside of all of them.
    If you ever been wet and cold -15F and tried to start a fire after finding stuff dry enough to try to burn and with numb hands tried to start a fire with a flint and steel…you know it sucks.
    Bic carry it, use it. They make a nice fist pack in a pinch as well.

Im a bic fan too but my bics bigger.

Staying warm is good!


#106

I wear shorts in 20° weather ,whle I agree staying warm is good I dont mind the cold. Froze my ass off from drunk hiking a few years back, not my brightest moments but fire did the trick.


#107

Drunk hiking is a key, but overlooked, survival skill!


#108

Let’s not make this a “who’s BIC is bigger” contest! Ya bichead!


#109

Yup.

Your worst problems MAY be clean water and waste management.

Water filtration/treatment, and know how/where to dig a hole.

Everything else is taken care of. This new “preppier” industry is really quite astonishing; everything we learned in Boy Scouts and then the Army. If you didn’t do those growing up? GLWS of your hustle.


#110

Did it take you the whole month to think that up? :open_mouth:


#111

*PROBABLY will be clean water and waste management.

I agree though. Water,Food,Shelter & Defense are pretty immediate needs.


#112

I’m out in the woods, what do you want for me? LOL just happen to run by it on the bottom of the threads

I’d say Mr. 3 is trying to triangulate your tree stand location?
