  • September 2012 Economic Status

    Dear Friend and Preferred Customer,

    I’m writing to you give you my current feelings on the economy. The election campaigns are in full swing and getting nasty. Our nation’s national debt is now over $16 Trillion dollars and growing at over $2 billion dollars per day with no end in sight. It is not a pretty sight ahead. Gold & silver is on the rise.
    The Federal Reserve is about to announce new stimulus plans. The last time we saw an expansion of the money supply (QEII) after the 2010 mid-term elections customers slammed us with orders for Mountain House freeze-dried foods and our many food reserve units. Within 4 weeks, all food reserves were sold out across the country. I see a similar situation setting itself up again.
    We have seen a 400% increase in orders from current and new customers over the past 2 weeks. I believe this is only the beginning. We are seeing price increases in many items we offer. All of us are seeing local food price increases each month. Inflation is MUCH higher than we are being told by the government.
    As one friend to another, I STRONGLY encourage you to review your preparedness plans & take steps to get better prepared right now.
    September is National Preparedness Month. We are doing our part to help you and your family. We are currently offering some of the lowest prices we have offered in the past two years. Our Mountain House SALE comes to an end Saturday, September 15th, so if you want to save up to 28% off PLUS get FREE SHIPPING on any order over $99, jump NOW! while supplies are still available.
    In closing, thank your loyalty and continued patronage. We very much appreciate your business.

    Be Prepared Now More Than Ever,

  • Emergency Water Storage Tips

    Emergency Water Storage Tips

    These are the categories I consider when deciding how much emergency water to store and how:

    • Number of people you are storing water for.
    • Number of gallons per person (drinking, cooking, personal hygiene) In my opinion, the bare minimum is 2 gallons per person per day. Some say one gallon is sufficient but one gallon will only give you 2 quarts to drink and then 2 quarts to cook with, brush your teeth, wash your body and wash your hands during the day.
    • Number of days you want to prepare for—one week, one month, etc.
    • Storage space for water containers: In determining what size containers you want, determine what size will fit in the storage area and if the containers need to be mobile or if they can stay in one place once you’ve filled them. Water is heavy so larger containers, 30 and 55 gallon, will be too heavy to move once filled. Five gallon containers can be moved to wherever you need them and can be stacked to reduce storage space requirements. Two-liter pop bottles are good for small spaces but it is possible for them to break down and develop leaks so you need to check them regularly.
    • Accessories: siphon pump for larger containers that are standing upright, spigots for large containers that are lying on the side and for 5 gallon containers, water preserver.

    Start with clean containers. Wash them out with soap and water and make sure to remove all soap residue. (Large containers are not as difficult as you might think to clean out. Put a dishtowel inside the barrel, add enough water to saturate the towel and extra so it can swoosh around easily and still make contact with the sides to scrub away dirt. Two people, one on each end of the large barrel can effectively swoosh the towel around by moving the barrel up and down and side to side and rolling it around. Then tip the barrel to let the towel land at the opening and pull it out. Rinse well with another towel and clean water. Rinse again.) Do not use empty milk containers because the protein residue cannot be totally washed off and bacteria could grow. Larger containers such as 55 gallon water barrels should not have been used for anything except water because of residue and odors. No glass because of the potential for breakage. If using 2-liter pop bottles, clean thoroughly.

    Some advocate using bleach to keep the water safe from bacteria but I worry about that because of the correlation between chlorine and health problems. I prefer to use Oxy-Stabile which adds more oxygen to the water inhibiting bacterial growth. It will keep water safe for five years. Replace your water every 12 months if not using Oxy-Stabile or Aerobic 07.

    Do not store in sunlight and store in a cool environment. If that’s impossible, then protect it the best you can from direct sunlight and if the water is going to freeze, then fill the container 90% full, leaving room for expansion.

  • The ONLY Investment You Can EAT...FOOD!

    November 10, 2010

    Foods prices are on the rise as the value of the U.S. dollar continues to decline. In just the past 12 months alone we’ve seen wheat, corn, oats and other base food item rise by as much as 40%. Massive new government bailout QEII money will create a huge wave of inflation from gas to groceries.

    Having a survival food reserve of our gourmet freeze-dried foods can bring you and your family great peace-of-mind and security in these troubling economic times.
