Stored Food Must Have Long Shelf Life

As we b56 Serving Grab n Go Bucketegan our on-line store, we knew we needed a good source of canned or dried foods that would take less room to store and wouldn’t be dependent of refrigerators and freezers. Yes, you can get products like that at your local grocery store but there are 2 distinct disadvantages to stocking up on canned goods and jerky: (1) Canned goods are heavy and if the disaster requires you to move out, they don’t move easy; (2) Both canned goods and jerky take up a lot of storage room which most do not have.

We found a good source of Wise Freeze Dried Foods, which gives you a wide variety of meats, fruits and vegetables that just require water to prepare. It’s definitely better to have Apple-Cinnamon Cereal for breakfast, Cheesy Macaroni for lunch, Stroganoff for dinner, and a Tropical Fruit Bar for snacks than to have Beef Jerky and canned beans, corn, or peas for EVERY meal – Wouldn’t you agree?

 

Is a Travel Trailer “the Answer”?

TenayaLake 6p FastPitch Cabin w/Cabinets cole2pic3000018142

If you have prepared for any major disaster with food and water, there are still items you will need to be self-sufficient; one area you need to prepare yourself for is: Where will you sleep and what will you need to keep warm? A travel trailer, pickup camper, or a motor home are all viable sleeping quarters – as long as you have a way to make fire for cooking and boiling water. IF your vehicle is able to survive a solar flare or an EMP (Electro-Magnetic-Pulse), you only have so much fuel for the vehicle and limited propane in the vehicle. One answer to supplement your camping vehicle would be a tent.

We have a travel trailer and, knowing it’s limitations, we are purchasing a Coleman TenayaLake 6p FastPitch Cabin w/Cabinets tent and upgrading our sleeping bags – My wife is trying to convince me we need to purchase a cot or air mattress to sleep on in the tent and I will probably relent because, as a hunter who has slept on the ground, you get up with aches and pains, especially as I get older (mid 70’s). We have a wide variety of Alps Mountaineering and Coleman tents to choose from to fit your needs.

A Good Camp Stove is Essential When Camping

Zippo Windproof StoveWe have four (4) full 5 gallon propane tanks and four (4) full fuel tanks we keep at the ready if the situation requires us to leave our home and we selected the Zippo Windproof 2-Burner Stove because it is built very rugged and Zippo has built wind proof lighters for as long as I can remember! It uses the 1# propane tanks but you can use the larger tanks with a little modification.

Runny eggs, uneven picnic tables and wind. These are some of the most frustrating challenges while cooking on a stove outdoors. Not anymore. Zippo’s stove features simple improvements like independent adjustable feet and a bubble level to ensure your cook surface is flat and easy to manage. An optional leg accessory is also available to free up valuable picnic table space. The dual burners feature a burner and chimney combination to protect against wind and direct more heat up towards the pot or pan.

But we carry a variety of camp stoves by Coleman, Tex Sports, and Zippo to fit every pocket book because our goal is the best products for the least cost to our customers.

Protecting Your Family, Friends, and Neighbors

NcStar 42" Double Carbine Case, Digital CamoAs we began preparing for disasters (man-made or natural), protecting ourselves, family, friends, and neighbors became a real talking point. We knew the most reliable tool for self-protection would be handguns and rifles. Every member of my family is trained in firearms safety and accurate shooting, so the question became: “What kind of firearms?” That is a choice to make carefully; it is a personal choice but should start with firearms safety training! Safety and proper care of firearms is as important as being able to hit what you’re shooting at! Cleaning kits and gun bags were the first items we acquired, plus we standardized the firearms we would use.

I like the NcStar Double Carbine Case 36 because it has a separating pad to keep 2 carbines from banging against each other and the 3 exterior pouches allow me to carry several magazines and cleaning gear with it.

This is something that I know is dangerous, so I have been working on finding some way to get the water that I need whenever I am out for a hike.

Then I wouldn’t have to carry more water, but I could refill my water bottle as I am hiking in the woods. There are a lot of great water bottles that are made for this purpose exactly.
