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!!!
damn your way ahead of the game, i like!!!!
yeah you gotta work on that maybe go down to your local low end or Spanish grocery store they usually sell off the food grade barrels they get their food in. 55 gallon barrels for we have them here for about 30 bucks though I'm sure you can talk them down. its illegal for them to reuse them and they have to pay haze mad to take them away. a little cleaning with bleach and your good to go. if you don't have space maybe put them in an easy to build ahead or not as good an option is to just throw a tarp over them. you can even get them for free or close to it from local drink and food manufactures if you have any near you. its the same set up as the stores but they generally don't have away to sell them so they'd be happy to have you take them off their hands. either way just make sure you find out what was in them before hand. don't buy if it was anything harmful or chemical.
oh you ever get that filter made? remember with it you still have to boil the water it doesn't kill microbes it just filters out all the crud. oh and if you use activated carbon from over the counter supplements it works a lot better then the barbecue charcoal, don't know the price comparison though.
well you can get sand and charcoal at any home improvement center or hard wear store. you can get activated carbon instead of charcoal at any drug store.
nice to see your war room coming together.
