Easy survival food storage on a budget

If you haven’t stocked up food and water for an emergency or disaster, this item could be a lifesaver for you and your family.

Is your reason or excuse for not being prepared the same one used by well over 300 million other Americans? The two most common excuses are procrastination and finance, then there’s head in the sand or cyber clouds. Oh, I almost forgot the 60%+ who genuinely believe there is no need to ever prepare for a period. disasters? These things happen anywhere but here in my backyard, and besides, I worry about it when it happens.

If you belong to the “it probably won’t happen” camp, you must live or have lived in the outback, incommunicado. It is no longer a question of what the catastrophe will be, but when it will occur. As I write this article, Hurricane Harvey is approaching South Texas, and many coastal residents interviewed by news reporters have expressed doubts about the severity of the storm and the media’s expressed urgency for an immediate coastal evacuation. If I remember correctly, it’s the same scenario regarding the skeptics of Katrina’s prognosis, resulting in 1,800 deaths.

Most Americans are unaware of the plethora of imminent disasters unrelated to predictable weather patterns, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, rain and snow storms, floods, and even droughts that can be predicted. Recently, geologists are reporting earthquake activity across the country, with tremors recorded from all major faults. Over 400 tremors are recorded daily on an area of ​​400 square meters. Miles area of ​​one of the world’s largest dormant volcanoes, Yellowstone National Park. Not so dormant now, according to volcanologists. Most of this information is being withheld or suppressed to prevent greater panic in the affected regions. Like the fact that Mt Rainer is just as active and swelling as Mt St Helens before it erupted, but experts say it will be five times worse because the lava cork is holding back a possible early eruption. National Geographic has produced a video showing the potential destruction of such an event and a similar documentary on the potential destruction of Yellowstone’s supervolcano.

Much has been said in the past about the San Andres Fault posing a major threat to millions of Californians. However, one discovery takes precedence. The New Madrid Fault is not new to geologists who have been studying this area around the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers for decades. Recently, unprecedented activity has raised such concern that its destructive potential could be ten times worse than the San Andres Fault. Based on geological predictions, the US Navy has created new water navigation charts of the US predicting the resulting mathematics depicting a resulting shipping route from the Gulf of Mexico to Lake Michigan that follows the current course of the Mississippi and Ohio rivers.

Why can’t these insights and predictions be shared by the news media? A major reason is their intrinsic irresponsibility, hype, drama and exaggeration of upcoming events. What would be the consequences of a major panic by a large segment of the population? If the results were large migrations from an affected area, where would they go, or more specifically, where could they go?

Another natural disaster that has the potential to wipe out over two-thirds of this country’s population is an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) from a solar flare or neutron bomb detonating 30-40 miles over the US on the east or west coast. Most Americans have no idea what an EMP is until it shuts down the grid – and they’re in the dark for months or even years. An EMP attack will also disable anything with electronic circuitry such as cell phones, computers, cars, planes, trains, boats, etc. Welcome back to the horse-drawn carriage era.

What I’ve given as examples so far is enough to end civilization as we know it, and yet I don’t know about the impending collapse of our dollar and economy, civil war or WWIII, a major pandemic or a talked about terrorist attacks.

How many more possibilities do I have to mention before I sound like a doomsday win or angst porn purveyor or monger. Oh good, just pick one! Then ask yourself this simple question: “Do I have enough food to last at least a month?” Do you think the grocery store will have food left the day after a major disaster? If it’s a longer disaster, will you survive two or three months? What about protecting what you have from looters and those who want to cause you great physical harm to get what you have? How long will the groceries you have in your cupboards now last? Water? What if the water stops flowing from your taps? Three to 4 days without water, your no more!

If it were possible to know that you only had 1-2 weeks to gather enough food for three years, do you have the tools or knowledge to know how to do it? This is exactly why I am writing this article, to tell you how to achieve this.

For just $109.00 and a 7 gallon bucket with n airtight, watertight lid, you can have enough healthy food that can easily last for 15-20 years and two generous meals a day ($0.14 per meal) 50 pounds will provide long grain rice and 45 pounds will provide pinto beans. (From Costco or another warehouse or food club). Now all you need are pots and a wood-burning camp stove or solar solar oven and utensils. Finally, either water or a device that purifies polluted water.

Lest you go crazy eating plain beans and rice, stock up on a wide range of condiments and canned tuna, chicken, beef, spam, etc. to add more protein and variety to bean and rice meals.
