    Let's forget politics.

    We may have hard times coming.What have you got in the pantry?

    Can you go three to six months without going to the store?

    Funny, but I only grocery shop every few months. I don't really drink milk, and I get my eggs and honey from a friend who has chickens and bees. I can, too. I have stuff in the freezer that's been there for a long time.

    So yeah, I think I could survive for at least 3 months.

    Besides, I have lots of horse meat and cats.

    (Ok, I was just kidding there...)

    I do know how to fish, and the lake is within walking distance.

    For years I have joked with the "war dept" about how much food she keeps on hand. Now it is no joke. Hell yeah, we can make it a year or so if we have to.

    The companies that sell long term food stores like freeze dried and dehydrated are reporting record sales and are on extreme back order. My wife thinks I'm a kook for for spending $2,000 on canned and dried goods a few months back.

    A good water filter could prove handy. you can go weeks without food, only a few days without water.

    Recurvy,

    I wish I could get my wife to think like you. Hard times won't effect her life until she can't get her hair and nails done.

    Oh well, she's the joyfull one and I'm the doom and gloomer. Perhaps she's in a better place.

    Food grade plastic five gallon pails with gasket lids work best.

    You can do a search on some long term food storage sites and find much info on this very popular subject.

    Actually; carp and suckers cold pack well. The canning process softens up the bones. Koz...thare ain't much road kill on 198. Just a few coyotes and a bunch of ground squirrels.

    Ammo and garden vegetables canned from last year. Enough seeds for next and then some. Just had a lamb butchered and getting cow done early January. The hog is next think a trip to a freind's farm in Georgia is coming soon. A generator and a still just in case we need petro. Of course the canner for the food doubles for that. Plenty of firewood and a fire place. Reloading supplies, extra brass and powder et al. An underground shelter. A family who knows how to hunt and fish and what to do after the kill.

    Above is a link for cold packing.

    Well drilled in the back yard for irrigating the garden and drinking. The county water guys don't like that at all. Septic tank also.
