I wish I could keep my pantry stocked. I figure I'll try what C3 suggested. It'll be mostly of hominy, brussel sprouts, spinach, beets, & anything else that my roomies will only eat if they're dying.

I'm probably going to catch it when the bill comes in, but I'm getting paranoid about the middle east, oil, gubment, just about all this Charlie Sheen stuff going on. I made a $200 dried food order today. Should be in by the end of the week or first of next.

Better to have it & not need it than to need it & not have it. What brand?

The stuff Sam's sells is Ausguston Farms. I haven't used any but the reviews are good. I've used some of readi reserve products just like the one's I'm buying and they make good food. I got fruit, dried potatoes, and veg.

I didn't know Sam's sells those. I have one up the road, I should do the same.

I consolidated the GOOD kit and it's now in the Pilot along with water and the kinda'-sorta' C-Rations I made up and vacuum packed.

I also bought three automatic siphons from SG.

However, I went backwards too. I sold some of my SHTF ammunition to help pay for the new 1911. It was a trade off, I need a dependable back up pistol since one is none. Now I have to start re-stocking ammo as best I can.

My local store doesn't carry it in-house. I order it on the website and it ships really cheaply.

After reading through the list, I see water isn't popular?

I'm stocking up on dried rice, dried beans, water, ammunition, silver, tools, LED flashlights, and a number of other things. A savage 93 17 HMR is on my list of things to buy too.
