I feel better about the stuff on the floor of my pickup now. I can always say it's survival provisions.

His only food was what he could get out of an old peanut butter jar and sauce packets from Taco Bell.
Hope for his sake he had "mild."

Folks, use this as a guideline for winter, how long does it take to put a bag of winter provisions in your backseat? A large candle and a coffee can to burn it in, some matches, a blanket, extra clothing, some non perishable food, and a couple of bottles of water. Spending ten miutes gathering items and placing them in your car could make all the difference.

Thank God for his friend who was determined to seek out the lost. During this holiday season, it kinda reminds me of someOne else who did that a few thousand years ago....

Bless Robert Ward. It's wonderful news to hear that this man survived, though we find the Taco Bell sauce element humorous, this was very nearly a young man cut down in his prime.
I wish news would sound like this more often, do we really need to hear about EVERY fire and EVERY shooting and EVERY murder every time they happen?

Last week I went to a fast-food joint and ordered a combo meal. It included one regular-size fries. I asked for some salt and ketchup to go with it. The girl grabbed a handful of each and threw them in the bag. I counted. For that one regular-size fries, this scholar working the counter gave me . . .
7 packets of salt and 9 packets of ketchup!
In the case of the gentleman in the story, though, the wastefulness of the counter help finally paid off.
Whilt it's nice that he had taco sauce to eat, a humam being can easily survive for a week without food (presuming the person isn't already malnourished beyond belief).
Water, however, is a whole other issue...

I love to slit the tops of the packets and just slurp it down.
Maybe I'll keep a few in the car now for "survival", instead of wasting them.

Another reminder. I keep two wool blankets, a big bag of banana chips, a few cans of beans and ravioli, a first aid kit, candles, flash light, can opener, metal dishware, etc. in my truck at all times. You never know....

Sure don't say much for bachelor's.
I guess ketchup is a vegetable, after all.
