Goya canned juices have some pretty long codes too.

And they are tasty! Easy to cycle the stock.

What is the shelf life on that?

About 6 months. But I always keep one unopened in my freezer. Should keep for a long time.

Great stuff!

Have any rural preppers thought about using one of those “solar generators” to power 1 or more chest type high effeciency deep freezers?

Just an idea I have for preserving hard to keep food for later trade/barter...

In Utah, you will find local Walmarts stock a lot of canned “Emergency” food. Powered butter, eggs, honey, dehydrated berries, Dehydrated soups, flour, candies, Beef Stews, cereals, rice, wheat, large 50+ gallon Water storage barrels with hand pumps.

The LDS Church encourages it’s members to keep a food supply for emergency use for up to 1 year - in case of emergencies. Wal-mart saw this market, so pretty much any Walmart you find in Utah and the surrounding areas will have an aisle of 1 gallon cans with emergency rations of almost every kind of food you can imagine.

The Bible councils us to set aside food for times of need; this is just wise to do.

I have about 60 cans of this stuff. Keeps almost indefinitely at reasonable temperatures.

After the gasoline tanks are depleted everyone, not just rural, will wish they had a small solar power system to power their refrigerator and/or freezer. You could sell ice cubes for a dollar a piece.

These Lipton pasta/rice sides go on sale 2/$.99 at Publix sometimes. They have practically unlimited shelf life and are good enough to eat anytime to keep the stock rotating.

Since Obama is in the White House, we should prepare for the apocalypse.

Have you tried the honey? Is it any good?

Our local walmarts has started to get prepper food in. We were thinking of stocking up but not too sure how it would taste.

Those potatoes are a bit salty but worth keeping for emergencies. ( Works fine for stews.)

Atta Boy!

Now, I hope you also have another room with the necessary “home protection” implements to maintain custody of these goods.

I've got significant amounts of canned beef, chicken, tuna, salmon & corned beef. Sadly (not really) I just couldn't bring myself to hoard Spam.

One of the tough things to have for long term storage is a bread type product. I finally came up with Pilot Bread Crackers. Similar to what we had in K rations (as I remember them, I was a military kid), only better. 100 calories of basic carbs per cracker & 20 year shelf life.

Supposedly a sawed off Mosin Nagant, 7.62 x 54R. Likely photoshop ... the recoil would break your wrist.

This is the kind of recoil I like. Pulling the trigger of this is somehow more sobering to me than my AR15. A devastating weapon at close range.

Walmart in Wasilla, Alaska looks just like that, started stocking last week and its been flying off the shelves. I have 20 cans of everything from scrambled eggs to instant honey, going to get some more tomorrow.

Good shotguns, bottom ejection, cost under $175 during sales. ... I’m really into shotguns right now. Just bought an Akkar 20 gauge semi auto and chopped the barrel to 18 1/2 inches. Working on 2 inch roll crimped shells with #2 shot. Allows an extra round int he magazine tube. With slugs, it’s like having a .45 caliber rifle that will shoot many other ‘things’. Also just finished trick out a Maverick 88 12 gauge. Put a Mossberg 500 18 inch barrel on it and a pistol grip collapsible stock. Added velcro side saddles to both. The 20 has seven rounds in side sadlle and six on butt stock saddle.

I prefer the smaller packaging of the Future Essentials.

I ate a can of the first batch I ordered. I have no complaints. I think of this stuff as camping food. Of which I did/ate a lot as a kid. We always had K rations around, which of course we kids thought were uber cool.

I noticed that one important provision is being over looked. And I'm not being silly. Unopened it keeps forever. Mentally medicinal and certainly valuable for barter.

I consider a couple of cases of good liquor an essential ingredient of survival stores. Bourbon of course being the best option.

Costco, too, is offering a longer-term survival package @ $3600 IIRC.

Honey lasts practically forever. It’s said that it’s the only food that doesn’t spoil over time (high sugar content/low moisture). For honey, I’d just buy whichever kind I like and keep it well sealed. If it crystallizes, put it in its container in some boiling water, it will return to its natural fluid state.

I just made a late night run to Walmart; no survivor food here, tho. I have about 3 months in various places around the house; no nice storage like that.

That is too much food storage for a single guy. You should get married and share it with someone who knows how to cook it up. : ) Are you a conservative? : ) Maybe we should talk...
