In light of certain recent possible zombie activity, the story of which is swarming over this site like the gnawing horde's of its content i feel it is important to take a look at our preps and ask ourselves are we truly ready. that in mind i ask all how are willing to post pictures of your supply's. water food and what ever else you find fit to share with us. i for one am hoping this all to be a false alarm because i am not ready.
(this is my current water supply. in this closet i have just about36 galleons of water. which will last my family of four just nine days. assuming of course the red cross recommended one gallon per person per day. how ever i also have a
which gives me an additional hundred gallons by letting my safely fill up bath tub with water with out fear of contamination. which gives me "assuming i have time to use it" a total of 136 gallons or 34 days or nearly five weeks or over a months worth of water for my family.all of this not counting the 75 gallons in my hot water tank and in the sinks i plan to fill up. perhaps not enough water but its something.
(i fear I'm not doing as well on food as i am on water. that pic contains in it all the stored food i have at the current time. not counting the pack of mainstay bars in my bug out bag that's enough for one person for three days. i recently fell on hard times and had to use up my previously stored food supply and i just began to replenish it.. i do have my normal supply of food that i live on. and if i eat sparingly and consume perishables first i may have an extra week to two weeks worth. maybe. again I'm not in the best position, food wise. how ever unlike the rest of my family I'm over weight and i know from past experience i can go over a month with out eating and still be fully functioning. so i probably will go with out eating which will give them a bit more time.
Well since my food stock were dangerously depleted i went down to the local Pathmark. not my first choice expensive but i didn't have the car and it was with in walk distance and i bought 87 dollars worth of shelf stable food. and here it is my newly stocked survival pantry.
So the first of the month has come and gone and with it my monthly trip to the store to buy as meany supply's as i can with a hundred dollars. after hitting up my local dollar store, which i love cuse i managed to get almost everything for a dollar, here is my updated supply.
NOW ITS YOUR TURN PEOPLE LETS SEE YOUR WAR ROOMS!!!
well its almost the first of the month and I'll finally have some money I'm looking into getting more food for my supplys. im thinking about buying this.
(The Wise 56 serving Grab-n-Go Bucket is designed for 1 Adult for 4 weeks, or 4 adults for 1 week (2-Servings pr. day). Wise Food's ready-made meals are nitrogen-purged and sealed in economical 4-serving Mylar pouches, and are shipped inside a tamper-evident sealed bucket (bucket is resealable once opened and can be re-purposed for a variety of needs). 25 year shelf life so you will not have to worry about freshness.) kinda like mre's though i hope these taste better. its either that or take the hundred id spend on this and go buy more canned goods at the dollar store. what do you guys think i should do. ohh and don't forget to post pics of your supply's!!!
I would go buy more canned goods if I were you, you'll get more food for your money. Although Parker is right these meals are good if you have to bug out.
yeah that's what it comes down to amount verses weight. hell ill just buy the cans and get more mainstay bars for bugging out. so speaking of which what kinda canned foods do you think i should get?
canned tuna,canned fish (i know tuna is fish but i mean herring and stuff)canned vegtabels,canned beans,canned fruits, canned corn and i would also get some ramen noodles to make meals have more of variety than fish all the time
Don't forget canned ravioli... that stuff is packed with protein and carbohydrates.
i didnt i know have like ten cans of the stuff, they were on sale.
guns are great but i would really reconsider that food and water issue. you say you'll steal food but where are you gonna steal that food from. stores only keep what there gonna need for three days on the shelves. with zombies going around i doubt they will get any more delivers in. fact of the mater is all those wallmarts and grocery stores people always love point-out as to go too;s, are gonna be ghost towns before zombies even show up. I'm talking empty shelves man. the only people who will have food are those who prepare like us or raider gangs like you who most likely have more guns then, or are just as starving. learn to love the spam man, its much better then eating one of those bullets.
