I hear ALOT of talk about how much ammo and how many mags to keep around for SHTF but I've yet to hear any talk of how much food and more importantly water to keep on hand.

Anybody have any suggestions?

I always try to pick up a few extra packs of beef jerky/energy bars/granola bars when on sale or from the "membership" warehouses. They keep forever and are high in protein/carbo's. Lots of salt though. I have several cases of bottled water ready to go at all times. But this is a limited supply, I could probably get by for a month. I feel like I could find a place to restock by then. If not, well it's worse than I thought.

What do the rest of you do?

Just eat what you kill with all that ammo! Including [b]PEOPLE[/b]! Drink their blood to quench yer thirst!

Get a food dehydrator. Make your own dried meats & fruits. Get a vacuum sealer to seal them up in.
If long storage - throw a small desi-pack in before you seal to stop mildew.

Buy the best portable filtration system that you can afford . Keep iodine and extra filter and spare parts with it. This makes me happy

BTW, I saw the other day that the Red Cross was recommending that people keep a disaster prepardness kit around the house. They recommended three day's food, one gallon of water per person per day, and a first aid kit.

The Red Cross will shortly collapse in endless debates about the contents of the bug-out bag.
