Hit the store today. More rice, beans, spam. Packed it away wife dosent even know its here. She might complain now but I will bet if we were out she would like it. Unless you have been really hungry (starving) or been in the military under less than perfect circumstances you dont now how to enjoy simple stuff like beans and some salt.

^^^ Ramen noodles are cheap enough that your spouse probably wouldn't complain if you picked up a case or three; watch the sodium though.

My parents told me after hurricane Katrina that they bought a neighbor's fuel from their crushed Expedition/Shortbus. They used it in the generator & did their best to cook & eat all of the frozen veggies ASAP.

Pizza on a propane grill is quick and tastes better than made in an oven.

Just curious, in a ****f situation, and when there are no supplies to be had and the mobs start hitting house to house to find supplies, if you just hunker down in place, are you going to have enough people to perform guard duty 24/7, then if you don't, you wont be able to keep what you have or probably your life or your families.Remember there is safety in numbers that you can trust, and don't count on the Military and Leo to keep you safe, because they will only be interested in keeping the infrastructure in place, food and fuel will be one of the items and it is rumored that that will be for the LEO and Military and the officials of said area, it will not be released to the consumer.
I have a 7x18 foot cargo trailer with 3months supply with every thing I will need to survive with the people going with me, the reason of 3months, it might take that long to get where my cache is, once there, I have about 4 years of food along with a good supply of ammo, as of right now there are about 200 that will be there, and more are deciding to go every day.If you do decide th just hunker down, at least try to get people you can trust the hunker down a a group, that is the only way you will have a chance.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

What worked for us during after hurricane was relying on neighbors who were in the same situation and had the same concerns at the time.
We figured out that for at least three days, we were on our own. No outside help at all (including medical). Our "little community" may not work in Kansas or New York City, but for the hurricanes we have been through, it works for us.
The other "Plus" is that you do not have to rely on one person alone to think of everything. Everyone has input.
There may not be one answer to each situation, but one has to learn to adapt. Plan for the worse, and hope for the best.

We have Mastiffs in the house that I can split the guard duty with. I do have one really good neighbor who Im sure we would watch out for each other as we do now. I dont depend on LE now so that wont be a concern of mine.

Here in Houston after the last Hurricane, the ones on our street did basically the same thing, we got together and more or less patrolled the street to keep ck on the ones houses that did evacuate, we finally after about 2 1/2 weeks did see a patrol car, they stopped and thanked us for helping us out, they said they were just overwhelmed and could no answer all calls that came in.It was a little over a month that we were without electricity.
