I think this is either part 2 or 3 of food storage without looking it up. Its been two years since the plague arrived. You can say plague but not covid. The more people I talk to in the general population the more it seems to feel like this isnt going to end well. Everyone is worried. After reading Selco Begovics last book Im more convinced of its not the nutters or the junkies or ferals or the government that we have to be concerned about but the middle class and their right to entitlement. When foxtel goes down or even more importantly the internet then I can see riots in the street. After the last two years and now the price of fuel sky rocketing and people still dont have a minimum of three months of food or god forbid toilet paper.
DO PEOPLE STILL THINK THE GOVERNMENT WILL DO ANYTHING TO HELP. THE 9 MOST DANGEROUS WORDS IN HUMAN HISTORY. IM FROM THE GOVERNMENT AND IM HERE TO HELP.
Three months staves off famine in these uncertain times. Six months is even better. If I had a shipping container Id have it filled to the brim, but Ive tried to have enough stored away where I dont have that fear everytime the word Rationing is used or Global Food Shortage.
The old axiom is to use the food you have in the fridge first then the freezer. Then canned goods etc etc. Ive had canned vegetables and fruit in a cupboard for two years and they have turned to mush.
Each person has to work out for themselves what to store for their own families. The way Ive done it for myself is as mush dried grains as I could purchase at the time which was over three years ago. Sealed in mylar bags and plastic buckets and cost me around $800. That cost would now at least be tripled
The way I look at it is this. Shipping containers filled with 44 galon drums of food. I dont know anyone that could afford to plan on that scale. I need enough food that I can feed myself and those I care for around me. Until gardens can be initiated. (In practicality these should be going way before they are required).
Its not about having enough food to feed myself for two years. Its about having enough so Im not panicking at initial trouble. I wont feel the urge to be around rioting for last minute scrounging. Its to hold off becoming feral ike everyone else for as long as possible.
What are the easiest ways to control mass population. Fuel for heating and transportation and through food and communications for information. So think of ways to negate these,A Primary, An Alternative, A Contingency and Emergency action plans. PACE.
