I said "other." We don't actually stockpile, but have enough food on hand to last several months, and water enough for a couple weeks. We learned the importance of having some water when our government water system became contaminated.

My wife grew up poor, with food always an issue. She does not feel comfortable unless the pantry and freezer are full.

Does this mean men will start wearing loin cloths and throwing spears again? 

I think that works better in Greece.

I'm booking my plane ticket now. 

You better start getting used to back hair.  :lol:

I'm canceling the plane ticket...

Damn, prissy Americans.

Oh shut up, you're not even hairy.

GCN are really throwing me off. It was bad enough trying to sell me 7 shades of snake oil, but why the fuck do they have to treat me like I'm a retard if I don't have 20 years worth of food in my garage. On the plus side that hillbilly / stroke victim commercial is fucking hilarious.

Actually you'll be able to compensate yourself for the time, energy, and expense of repelling, destroying, and eliminating the looters by helping yourself to whatever they've so conveniently left behind...after all, it will just spoil anyways...

as an aside, I totally agree about GCN and their snake oil/funny commercials crap...

Food AND water.

Our house sits on a spring. Every time it rains, our basement floods. So we're building a cistern. Our water's pretty much taken care of. We're just stocking up on filters as far as water goes.

Other than that - canned food like crazy, lots of ammo, and a slowly but steadily growing supply of trading goods (liquor and wine, as well as precious metals).

Never underestimate chocolate, (Stick it in a freezer) Sugar, Honey, Corn Syrup, Brown Sugar, Sugar, and more Sugar.

A bunch of cartons of cigarettes or cig tobacco stowed away in a freezer is good, too. Cig tobacco is as cheap as hell.

We're doing that, actually. I bought out some inventory from a tobacconist who was going out of business, including a bunch of Nat Shermans. I don't know about other types of cigarettes, but I do know that Nats are AMAZING after 10 years. They mellow out and then stay that way. And they're packed so tight it doesn't matter so much that they dry out.

Storing wealth in some form likely to increase in value over time might be a good idea. Art, comic books and baseball cards, for example. Or certain distilled spirits, I suppose.

Since the school year is about to start, I'm stockpiling peanut butter, granola bars, dried fruit, chips, crackers, juice boxes and yoo hoo, for the three lunches per day I'll be packing, five days per week.

Seeing as how I'm dreading being up at 5:30 every morning, does that count as stockpiling for the coming crisis?

I love it when Joy does her Mom-talk on here. It's such a nice change of pace. You should start a Mom blog, Joy.

You mean like this? http://mappchik.blogspot.com/

Not always Mom-talk, though it is about 1/2 the time.

I have an extra week's worth of food all the time, so I don't think that counts as stockpiling.  If something somehow destroyed all the food outside of my apartment, I'd probably want to die after a week or less anyway.

If it was up to me, I'd have 20 years worth of freeze dried food in my sub-basement fallout shelter.
