The rise of the modern "prepper" is no accident, with shows like National Geographic Channel's, 'Doomsday Preppers' heralding a larger shift in social awareness.
In the wake of storms like Katrina, Irene, and Sandy, even stubborn New Yorkers are realizing that Mother Nature packs a punch, and that most people aren't ready to roll with it. This, combined with rising concerns about economic troubles ans a bumbling government, has caused a flood of newbie preppers to take to the stores, eagerly looking for the security of stored food, water, and medicines.
The prospect can be daunting, especially if you're trying to prep on your own or for a small group. Often, the biggest mistake new preppers can make is looking too far from home for the supplies they need.
Ping, if appropriate. Kinda basic, but you never know who is new to FR and/or prepping. :)
Caution: Bacon and chocolate will shrink your favorite clothes!
Dried beans .....a meal all by themselves!!! If one can garner the fixins for cornbread he’s in business!!!
Salty Snacks Check!
Looks like that covers all the food groups! ;-)
“needs to include bacon and chocolate”
Bacon. You must be from “Southern” Wisconsin. :-)
Close. Add 5. Cheesecake.
A 20-pound bag of rice is nice to have, too! Like pasta, rice keeps for a very long time.
Weird that they didn’t!
"I don't need to store food. I'm going to come into your house and take everything you have worked so hard to store. Me and my crew are your worst nightmare"!

The dear boy does realize that he just painted a target on himself?
Well we sure like our bacon down here in the South. :-)
Hat tip to Freeper Diana in Wisconsin fro the heads-up!
I get my Dak canned ham from CVS when they are on sale. I also buy a lot of staples and then vacuum pack them myself with oxygen absorbers verse paying a lot more buying them commercially on line. I also dehydrate and pack my own vegtables.
Also I am repeating myself, but I am NO fan of these food kits with preppared meals! You will be better off with the makings which you can create a varity of different meals verses having 8-12 selection, because some of them you are bond not to like.
Lastly get yourself if you can a invite to a LDS cannery. You can’t beat the prices and if you get a chance to work in the cannery it can be fun and educational. Wish I could get another invite.
He and his crew may very well be my worst nightmare but there is at least a chance that I will be his worst nightmare.
You have to carefully store drink powders with sugar. Sugar is hydrophilic it will suck moisture out of the atmosphere. Your beverage powder will turn into a beverage rock.
