We’re never far from a situation - earthquake, blizzard, power outage.

Or $8.00 a gallon for gas.

That would stop much of the truck transportation.

It sounds to me as though the Alaskan State government is doing its job.

Or mayhap just a fig newton of the imagination?

I wonder if they stockpiled any fig newtons. Those things are great, ... and healthy.

Who decides when, where, and to whom it gets distributed?

This exercise assumes that the food can get to the people or the people can get to the food. A terrorist EMP attack or a massive solar CME (coronal mass ejection) will wipe out most means of transportation and Alaska is a BIG state.

Mother Nature is not as forgiving of idiots up in Alaska. Not many OWS protesters sleeping out with the Grizzly Bears either. At least... none that can be found.

Good questions but still, the more they have stockpiled, the more there is to go around. Every little bit helps.

We have a railroad, even if for some obscure mechanical reason the diesel electric engines cannot run we have steam powered engines.

I can imagine now a New Alaska rising from the ashes of a global war, all our transportation is done by steam, fuel is from CNG available to all, natural gas heats the homes, fuels the cars, trucks and trains. The foraging moose by the thousands are now corralled and harvested for meat.

Many farms in the Mat Su Valley now raise their own moosemeat.During the summer months we grow half ton cabbages and meter long carrots. All fishing regulations have been discarded, many non natives who used to rely upon the stores now smoke fish, can veggies and build giant pantries at home.

Meanwhile those in Anchorage begin to starve without their Federal assistance checks, they riot, they freeze, they eat their wounded.

Sadly the Knik River Bridge is now a fortified gate limiting access of the Anchorage Zombies.

Well, there you go, Ben! obomo needs a panic emergency to stay in power....so the classic October surprise becomes a January surprise! “Sorry folks, Bruce Willis is just an actor and we’re about to get slammed by one big a$$ hammer so we can’t be changing our government right now. This martial law will continue for only as long as is necessary and not one day more.....”

If the commie govt. wants to stockpile large quantities of ammo for my guns, just tell us all where it is so we can access it if we need it....

The caves around here used to be designated Civil Defense shelters and stocked with old MREs but those were all moved out decades ago and trashed 25 years ago. I don’t recall seeing a Civil Defense Shelter sign posted in years.

Right there with you Kartographer. Based on the actions of the powers that be, they are expecting something nasty and soon.

Yep, The Iditarod only takes anywhere from 9 to 15 days and at least six out of twelve dogs in the team have to survive. Alaska is a BIG state.

Unk, how deep is your well and what kind of manual pump do you use? I have a generator that will drive the pump but if an extended outage occurred I would eventually run out of gas, thus no water. Thanks

Its a simple diaphragm pump like what you would use on a barrel, you can get them at AIH, I’m also cursed to a degree of having a high water table, its only about 8 foot down, was a bear when I had to install a concrete septic tank, it actually floated until I filled it with water.
