It’s that time; today is the final installment of the Top 10 Bug-Out Basecamp Essentials. So far you have purchased the gear necessary to escape the city limits, collect your family members, ascend the mountain to your retreat and make it livable and fortified once you’re there. Only one major element remains necessary to your preparations, and that is food storage. There are many ways to accomplish food storage, canned, freeze dried, canned-freeze-dried, dehydrated, etc. Anyone who tells you there is a perfect solution is trying to sell you something. There are no solutions that fit everyone’s needs, but here’s a starting point.
My top recommendation for your bug-out basecamp is a year’s supply of Mountain House Freeze Dried Food for two adults. Freeze dried foods will last over 25 years and require no cooking. This one year supply comes with a daily breakfast, lunch and dinner plus a vegetable and a fruit for two adults.
It’s not enough to have a few weeks’ worth of canned goods at your house. There are people who lost their homes in Hurricane Sandy who are still living on their lawns in tents. A real disaster situation won’t get cleaned up in a month or two. You have to plan long-term, sometimes that requires making an investment. Investing in a long-term supply of food is paramount. Do it today. Don’t let inertia hold you back.
