    Assuming you don't have a lot of $$$ to put in this right now, and that WATER is not a problem for YOUR location, visit the grocery store, shop carefully. Ramen noodles, instant soup mix. Instant oatmeal packets, hot chocolate mix (lotta sugar, some cafeine) dried fruit, raisins, etc. Would not want a steady diet of any of it, but cheap, light, and can keep your backbone and belly button apart for a while. Instant rice is a good carb that stores well, lightweight. Add some stew or chili, it's not bad, fillling, decent calorie loading.

    A jar of peanut butter is excellent just buy two one for the pantry you use one for the bag when first one runs out grab the one in the bob and replace it with fresh. Pb lasts a very longtime unopened.

    All readily edible food even mre have shelf life. You dont get into multiples of decades storage unless you go base dried grains. Best practice is rotation of foods even preserved foods that are edible out of the bag.

    It is my understanding that some pre-colonial Central American people used small dogs. Idea being, food that carries itself and doesn't go bad; one dog, one day, one dinner. :D

    Do you mean that the rest of you do not select pets based on their potential as an emergency food source?


    Whoops! :eek:

    MRE's are ok, there water proof, last long, and they taste ok. Best part is they come with matches and Tabasco sauce. I carry a couple when I go hiking.

    Might I suggest you take the Ramen noodles, instant soup, salt and other things and vacuum seal them. Yeah the noodles get crushed but you can carry more in your bag. You can also seal ammo and stuff.
