    A very good idea, December 22, 2011

    T. Tack (Ky) –

    This review is from: Chef s Banquet ARK 1 Month Food Storage Supply 330 Servings Up to 15 Year Shelf Life

    I can not say for sure how good this tastes since I bought to use only in an emergency. It has a 25-30 year shelf life unopened and 1 year opened. I do not care how it tastes as long as it keeps me and mine alive and isn’t horrible tasting. There is a decent variety in the can and would be a good basic life sustaining food supply. I was very happy with packaging as it comes from Costco in a box and a sealed 5-6 gallon bucket for $100.00 or less. If not a member, they do charge what they term a 5% up-charge. I also purchased a 43 lbs. can of beans with approx. same shelf life. My plan is to contiuue buying at leat one item per month till I have approximately a 1 year supply of various selections for 10 people which comprises my immediate family who live in my house and condo in Florida 800+ miles from my farm in Ky. If the world goes to crap, as I suspect is a distinct possibility sooner or later, this would sustain us until we can establish a garden. I also already have several dozen mason jars of canned foods (mostly tomatoes, green beans and corn) in my cellar from my current garden. I also bought an old 1969 Internationl Harvester Tractor with disk, plow,scraper and bushog to supplement a rototiller and small garden tractors I already had. The tractor uses regular gas and looks and runs like it just came off the show room floor, but if something goes wrong it is relatively easy to repair, unlike todays tractors, which just like todays autos, are way complicated. I do believe this to be a good product based on reviews elsewhere.

    It’s hard to beat the taste of steak. Steak stacks up not only in taste but versatility. From sizzling sirloins to succulent strips, steak is America’s favorite meat. It is known for its preparation diversity and it can be paired with many different types of food and beverages. And while steak has never gone out of style, recently it has become meat in demand as evidenced by the steakhouse explosion across the country.

    Find your pets food and treats and see if wheat, corn, or by-products are listed in the ingredients. If so, discard the products immediately.

  • rojocapo says:

    Every month I buy some large food item, like a 50 pound sack of beans, or rice, or flour. Then I put it in a mylar bag in a 5 gallon Home Depot bucket, kill the bugs with dry ice, throw in an oxygen absorber, and then seal the bag with an iron. I would like to eventually have a couple year’s food supply. The problem is I have very little cash so it is going like this: One month, buy 50 pounds of beans. Next month, buy some mylar bags. Next month, buy some buckets. Next month, buy some oxygen absorbers. Next month, buy some dry ice, and put the beans in the bags. It’s not going fast. I had a friend over to help me do this. I am 118 pounds, five foot four, and pouring 50 pounds of rice or beans into a mylar bag is hard for me. This guy was raised a Mormon (sorry, Latter Day Saint, whatever.) They are apparently old hands at food storage. He mentioned in passing I was breaking the law. I said “WHAT?” He said Clinton passed a federal law against hoarding food. He stepped over to my laptop, and showed me. I wasn’t prepared to listen to him, it just didn’t register with me. Now I have tried to find the law again on the internet, and I can’t. Is this true? Is it illegal to hoard or stockpile food?

    I placed a order for some long term storage able food from multiple distributor’s and ALL of them are back up like never before..its been about a month since i placed my order and they still haven’t shipped it…with all the dead birds dropping out of the sky around the world and earthquake activity higher then ever recorded in history,along with a whole host of things..wouldn’t it be prudent to keep al least a 3 month supply of food and water?

  • Shelley B says:

    I’ve been looking it up and i do think nuclear war is inevitable… when the oil runs out and wars escalate and the bombs start flying i would love to actually see the aftermath of it all and survive it.

    So i intend on buying a house like 15miles from a major city, obviously the house would be fucked up but i am looking at buying a place with a basement, which i would fortify with huge block brick and get it lined with led, underground 15miles away from a blast is rather safe from what i’ve looked up, the basement would be large enough for beds, sofas, food storage and bottle water, I’d also have power storage and batteries down there and medical supplies.

    I would also plan on buying radiation suits so that im safe from radiation and so are my family and friends. I would keep food and water down there that would last atleast a month.

    After 1 hour of a nuclear bomb falling the debris and radiation is reduced by 90% anyways.

    I’m moving soon and am trying to make the best economical decisions while still taking the best care possible of all my pets.
    Right now I’m paying a lot for rabbit food. It can be around 7-10 dollars for a 5 pound bag that my male mini rex goes through in two weeks.
    But Tractor Supply has a 50 pound bag of purina rabbit food that is only 15 dollars and could last me for 5 months. My rabbit is an indoor rabbit so the food would also be stored in a closed rubbermaid container most likely. I know mold is extremely toxic to rabbits and this is why it scares me, but the reviews on the food was great and I just wondered if the food was stored in a closed storage bin and in a dry dark place like a closet if it could safely last me 5 months.

  • Toi Shepheard says:

    We have all witnessed the paranoia of the Y2K bug scare. people storing everything from food to water to clothing and who knows what else. I understand a little stored away is good for those months when money gets tight but an entire years worth? Hmmm! When I lived in a port town in Alaska we in the winter of 2000 experienced avalanches up the road from us that cut off supplies for days on end. It was mass hysteria! The shelves at the grocery stores were bare of everything essential. only junk food remained. I looked everywhere for food supplies. Finally 3 days later the millitary flew food into us. So OK I learned my lesson on short term food storage that year but, is it good to store more long term for a year or so or is that a bit over the top?
    It was my very first month in Alaska and I knew absolutly nothing about wild game up here like Moose meat and fish and bear and so on. I had only been here from the midwest something like 20 days and it happened. Of course the situation inlife (I was going through made me welcome the isolation part as I was going through an emotionally rough time and just wanted to isolate as much as possible from everything and every one! So that part of it I LOVED! The food and heat situation got a little sticky there for a while and I learned A LOT that first winter up here.

  • Disrae says:

    7 million people died in India during British induced famine 1942-1943. Churchill had direct order to starve Indians, who he said were “beastly race with beastly religion”. 40 famines were in Bengal during British rule alone!

    Bengal is a land of rivers and most fertile land of Ganges delta. Bengal was a granary of India till British came in. Every village had, and still has, a pond, which has fishes that can feed the village even when there is no rice. It needed British intervention to convert the lush green land of Bengal into famine-starved land.

    Bengal had 30 or 40 famines (depending on how one defines famine) during 182 years of British rule in Bengal. There are no reliable accounts of the number of people who died in these famines. We have only the figures put out by British colonialists. But even given the limited data availability, once can see the barbaric face of British colonialism in India.

    The last big famine in Bengal occurred between 1942 and 1945. At least four million people died during these three years. Some scholars believe that the number of dead was much higher (remember that the figure of four million is based on British sources). Notwithstanding the controversy about the number of dead, it is widely accepted that the famine was man-made. Nobel laureate, Amartya Sen, has demonstrated quite convincingly that the famine deaths were caused by British policies and not by drastic slump in food production.

    Bengal was overcrowded with refugees as well as with retreating soldiers from various British colonies which were temporarily occupied by the Japanese. In March 1942 alone, around 2,000 to 3,000 British soldiers and civilians arrived every day in Calcutta and Chittagong, and in the month of May, a total of 300,000 were counted. As a result of the massive food purchases by the government, food prices in the countryside skyrocketed.

    Expecting a Japanese landing in the Gulf of Bengal, the British authorities enacted the so-called “Boat-Denial Scheme” leading to confiscation of all boats and ships in the Gulf of Bengal which could carry more than 10 persons. This resulted in not less than 66,500 confiscated boats. Consequently, the inland navigation system collapsed completely. Fishing became practically impossible, and many rice and jute farmers could not ship their goods anymore. Subsequently the economy collapsed completely, especially in the lower Ganges-Delta.

    The confiscations of land in connection with military fortifications and constructions (airplane landing places, military and refugee camps) led to the expulsion of about 150,000 to 180,000 people from their land, turning them practically into homeless persons.

    Food deliveries from other parts of the country to Bengal were refused by the government in order to make food artificially scarce. This was an especially cruel policy introduced in 1942 under the title “Rice Denial Scheme.” The purpose of it was, as mentioned earlier, to deny an efficient food supply to the Japanese after a possible invasion. Simultaneously, the government authorized free merchants to purchase rice at any price and to sell it to the government for delivery into governmental food storage. So, on one hand government was buying every grain of rice that was around and on the other hand, it was blocking grain from coming into Bengal from other regions of the country.

    The blank check of the government (for food purchases) triggered price inflation. As a result, some merchants did not deliver food to the government but hoarded it, hoping for higher profit margins when selling it later. This led to further food shortages on the market and to further price increases.

    In addition to this inflationary thrust, massive military activities in Bengal were basically financed by overtime of money printing presses. Oversupply of paper money by Government led to a general inflation, which hit the impoverished population in the countryside especially hard.

    Food or Metals?

    I’m moving soon and am trying to make the best economical decisions while still taking the best care possible of all my pets.
    Right now I’m paying a lot for rabbit food. It can be around 7-10 dollars for a 5 pound bag that my male mini rex goes through in two weeks.
    But Tractor Supply has a 50 pound bag of purina rabbit food that is only 15 dollars and could last me for 5 months. My rabbit is an indoor rabbit so the food would also be stored in a closed rubbermaid container most likely. I know mold is extremely toxic to rabbits and this is why it scares me, but the reviews on the food was great and I just wondered if the food was stored in a closed storage bin and in a dry dark place like a closet if it could safely last me 5 months.

    Every month I buy some large food item, like a 50 pound sack of beans, or rice, or flour. Then I put it in a mylar bag in a 5 gallon Home Depot bucket, kill the bugs with dry ice, throw in an oxygen absorber, and then seal the bag with an iron. I would like to eventually have a couple year’s food supply. The problem is I have very little cash so it is going like this: One month, buy 50 pounds of beans. Next month, buy some mylar bags. Next month, buy some buckets. Next month, buy some oxygen absorbers. Next month, buy some dry ice, and put the beans in the bags. It’s not going fast. I had a friend over to help me do this. I am 118 pounds, five foot four, and pouring 50 pounds of rice or beans into a mylar bag is hard for me. This guy was raised a Mormon (sorry, Latter Day Saint, whatever.) They are apparently old hands at food storage. He mentioned in passing I was breaking the law. I said “WHAT?” He said Clinton passed a federal law against hoarding food. He stepped over to my laptop, and showed me. I wasn’t prepared to listen to him, it just didn’t register with me. Now I have tried to find the law again on the internet, and I can’t. Is this true? Is it illegal to hoard or stockpile food?
    I believe it is called Executive Order 12919.

    Dwight has to eat his whole supply of food storage because otherwise it will spoil. Him and Jim start talking about the end of the world, and Jim keeps asking Dwight about the time frame in which the world will end.

    Jim : what about 1 month?
    Dwight : I can see that
    Jim : 3 months?

    Jim keeps asking this for a while. I’m curious what episode this is in.

    I placed a order for some long term storage able food from multiple distributor’s and ALL of them are back up like never before..its been about a month since i placed my order and they still haven’t shipped it…with all the dead birds dropping out of the sky around the world and earthquake activity higher then ever recorded in history,along with a whole host of things..wouldn’t it be prudent to keep al least a 3 month supply of food and water?

    this is what my sister and i came up with.. just something we did when we were bored and stuff 🙂
    We know it is very unlikely to happen.. but better safe than sorry right?

    ITS LONG!

    WHAT YOU NEED IN CASE OF A ZOMBIE ATTACK:
    ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO SURVIVE
    By: ….

    Okay so you can never be to safe. I have done research and have compiled a list of what you need. Please add more things if you believe you would need them.

    1.A zombie proof house.
    a.You need a good solid foundation that will withstand zombies gnawing at it, trying to break it down, and hard hits.
    b.Make a wall that will protect you from them. But make sure to make it far enough away from your house so that when you are asleep you do not hear the zombies trying to break it down to eat your brains. It would probably be smarter to make several walls with obstacles to make it more difficult for the zombie to climb or break them.
    2.Preparations; if not already at safe house.

    3.What to do in the first 24 hours.
    a.Fill up all containers that can hold water.
    b.Gather your weapons.
    c.Gather you essential supplies. (which I have made I list to)
    d.Board up all your window! More than one sheet!
    e.Make contact with family member; tell them where you are and to stay put.
    f.Create inventory list; eat perishable items first.
    g.Make a shopping list of items you will need later.

    4.Area based survival.
    a.Citys. Very bad place to be because so many people live there so there will be a lot of the undead. Also, trying to leave would be almost impossible b/c everyone else will be trying to do that to. So just STAY away from the cities.
    b.Rural. Found outside of the city. If you are here your chances of survival are higher than if you were in the city.
    c.Mountain. High point of land. It has advantages and disadvantages. Advantage; you can see more of the land and see them zombies coming however it also makes it easier for them to see you.

    Supplies you need to survive a zombie attack.
    •Zombie brain gekatin mold. To fool that in believing they are eating your brains not jello.
    •Light weight soft cover first- aid kit. It wont help you if you get infected, but if you accidently shoot yourself or take a nasty fall you can fix yourself up.
    •Cordless electric chainsaw. If you run out of ammo, or just want to have some fun.
    •Hardcore ATAC storm boots. Protect your feet.
    •Life gear survival backpack. This offers 3 days of supples, has water storage, food system, respirator mask, first aid kit.
    •Razor full helmet. Gotta proctect your brains, and your face.
    •Neck protector. If they arent going for your brain then they are going for your neck.
    •Walkie-talkie head set. Scary movies have taugh us two things; never split up & cell phones don’t work in emergency situations. If you have to break the split up rule, well then you got these.
    •Personal locator. So you can tell the rescue team exactly where you are.

    5.Travel.
    a.You must get a car that can withstand a zombie attack. Perhaps a large SUV or truck, with the bed covered b/c you do not want any zombies getting a free ride to you. Then you will drive from one town to the other and collect the supplies that you will need for the next week and if enough supply is collected for a month.

    6.Living with the zombies.
    a.Now that you have survived the first couple of weeks you must prepare yourself for the weeks to come. My first thing I will tell you is that you should rebuild and restart. What I mean is that you got to accept reality and realize you are living with the zombies. You have to get more supplies change your living style.

    WHAT YOU DO NO WANT TO DO DURING A ZOMBIE ATTACK:

    1.Don’t set zombies on fire. Zombies that are on fire have a horrible smell. It can take a very long time for a zombie to burn and they could possible catch you on fire.
    2.Do not become sentimental. It WAS your house, they WERE you friends. Remember these two lines, because zombie do not have feelings and if you do not follow this rule you will most likely become food or a zombie.
    3.Don’t keep zombies in the basement or as pets; even if they WERE family. Its very unsafe they could overthrown you and escape and kill everyone who is left. Also, you would just prolong their suffering so kill them kindly but immediately. I mean do you really want to be eaten by your friends and family?
    4.Don’t try and reunite with friends and family who are far away. Just a bad idea, very bad. If you are going to your moms house and zombie are leaving your mom house, after having a snack, then well your trap.
    5.Don’t go down. If possible. Stay away from basement, gullies, sewers because zombies can fall into these places or trip or just wander down there. But most zombies can not climb or will have a very difficult time getting UP so go UP not DOWN.
    6.Try and remain remotely quiet; don’t broadcast were you are. Zombies have ears and have been statistically shown to
    to have above average hearing. I don’t know why but they do. So remember no late night parties, try to jeep the noise level down and do not yell!
    7.Don’t stand in front of windows (duh). Windows are used as a defense against rain, wind, etc. but not zombies. Cover your windows, barricade them with a lot of wood or metal and do not turn your back to a window that is not properly secured.
    8.Don’t be the A-hole in your group. In most movies the a-hole is the first one gone… they only have about 4.32% chance of surviving.
