    Just watched all 9 parts of Wendy's videos. Very good info in them.

    I'm "bumping" this back up so more people can find it and watch them too.

    Good thoughts in your ramble, RA. If I were going to start over, I'd make a 2-4 week menu with different items every day and extend it over a year and stock to that. I'm still trying to convert my stocks to some such system. This video gives some great ideas, wish I'd seen it five years ago! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HhGaTlwYs-s

    She's Mormon, but lots of really experienced food preppers are.

    Being relatively new to the lifestyle, I can never really come to grips with "how much is enough" on the food front. I feel the answer to that question will become much more obtainable when we finally start (no BS) eating what we store. Wifey and I are going to make deliberate efforts to move in that direction. But it's been hard... changing the way you cook and eat, on top of full time jobs, and prepping (and prepping in the right order - another post)... it's very difficult. I've decided to start slow. Got tons of wheat... so, I'll start with bread (different varieties) and go from there. Then, maybe try one of the many book recipies from our stores. Again, I ramble.

    And then there is the guy at work - 3 or 4 others were talking about prepping, I don't say much about it for opsec reasons - who said, "I don't need to stock food, I have guns."

    It's sad that his 2 children will be hungry AND fatherless.

    No joke...
    - LDS cannery: low on certain staples. Completely out of others
    - Emergency Essentials: I'd say they're back ordered on 80% of their FD and maybe 50% of their DH foods
    - Emergency Essentials: even their first aid special this month was out of stock
    - Simpler Living: don't even carry MH foods any longer

    I'd say if an emergency (a real one - a domestic one) does arise, those of us who are stocked up will be sitting on gold mines of edible wealth (not that I'm stocking up to sell). I was skeptical until the LDS cannery trip. That got my attention. Not saying the shortages won't pass. They'll probably ebb and flow with demand and supply, but right now, demand is up (out the yin yang).

    I picked up on this over here in the UK too. It could just be a normal request ie FEMA have looked down their list of preps like we all do and realised they're a bit light on food and decided to stock up? Lessons learned from past emergencies perhaps?
    Or it could be more worrying...there are lots of dots out there (like Russia ordering 5000 survival bunkers apparently) the trouble is they don't have numbers on them so sometimes its hard to join them up!

    Dunno about 2012. I think it's got something to do with a commie in the White House who wants to make sure his buds survive his destruction of our country. And make sure it's harder for us peons to get prepared.

    I've been wondering about this.... I've been hearing different versions of the same story for the past two months. However, I'm still finding plenty of Mtn House, and Backpackers Pantry at REI, Great Outdoor Prov. Co, Gander Mtn, and even Walmart, at the regular prices. Supply and demand has always dictated prices and commerce in the past. When supplies are low demand is generally high. I would imagine that demand would increase as well, if the supply was "perceived" as being low through various news outlets, even if it really wasn't.
    In other words.... Could Mtn. House be playing us like a $12.00 banjo?

    Your thoughts?

    That is less than 5% of the US population! They are taking it to the mountain retreat and other bunkers. Wondered why my orders were being put off.

    The food order was to feed 14 million people. Didn't know that they had that many friends in D.C. :mad:

    Here is the list of #10 cans of Mountain House at Emergency Essentials that looks to backup the shortage. Almost everything is on back order at this site. However, our wheat order, that was listed a back ordered, is arriving on Wednesday.
