Step 4: Home Reserves

Being a bug in/out bag it’s hard to say oh ya this doesn’t quite fit in the bag but grab it too. However, there is no need to put it in the bag if it’s not coming out of the house. Here is a picture of my hidden stash idea. There used to be a floor heater, now it’s an awesome empty cupboard. The white box is the pancake mix. Remember to circulate food, I keep a container in the kitchen with pancake mix that I take from the box.

Always keep your pantry three layers deep and full. In the event of an emergency, you won't be hungry and you may even be popular.

Items include:
25 lb of pancake mix- only needs water and heat
25 lb of rice- only needs water and heat
cans of fruit
2 gallons of water
toilet paper- you don't know how much you like it until you don't have it.
<p>I would not want to cook food with gas because of the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benzene" rel="nofollow" style="">benzene</a>... as heating fuel it would be fine. Coleman fuel is gas with the <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benzene" rel="nofollow" style="">benzene</a> removed at the refinery.</p>
<p>I think he referring to propane or LPG,liquid petroleum gas, not gasoline. There is no benzene in LPG or propane</p>
Congratulations on being a finalist in the be prepare contest!
um a bigger knife fire arm bullets and cell phone/cb or ham radio
ya you are right, I was gona let the ham radio experts take care of radios, and I do not know which guns would be best to recommend.
People have lots of opinions on which gun would be best based on ammo availability, knockdown power, and a bunch of other things. My opinion is the one you have practiced using is best. In a situation where you are forced to use it you better be very familiar with how to use it.
Don't forget, if you have well water, your water will go as soon as you lose power. A hand pump is a plus.
My brothers, in the late 1960's kept freeze dried food in the back of a pickup camper. <br>We discovered that the gourmet mice had discovered every bag of it. <br> <br>Try getting large lard tins to hold the toilet paper and the flour, pancake mix, dried beans, rice etc. <br> <br>Square 5 gallon press top cans are air tight and mouse proof and can in large numbers support a matress. Sleep well and eat well. <br> <br>Try FREUND CANS in Chicago.
Very informative. More ideas for me to put on my list so I can add things to what I have. Thanks.
I've seen a stove that uses almost all types of fuel, my dad almost bought it for his motorcycle trips. White gas, gasoline, propane, almost anything
you should have 2 gallons of water per person per day
A handy addition to your bug-out bag would be a spare phone charger, preferably a hand-cranked one like<a href="http://www.amazon.com/Ambient-Weather-WR-111-Emergency-Flashlight/dp/B0071BTJPI/ref=reg_hu-rd_add_1_dp" rel="nofollow"> this</a> which includes a weather alert radio and flashlight.<br>
Use a leatherman and a better knife not a Swiss army knife <br>Some matches or more lighters would be useful to
