Canned food will expand if froze, some will pull apart at the weakest point in the can. Not all will do this, some...many items will be fine, but to
make sure they don't spoil, you should try to have the items in an above the freezing point. Even being to hot will do the same thing. Any temp above
freezing and below 80 is or for canned goods, but the best temp would be 40-60 year round.
If a SHTF and you had access to the storage facility, then get what you can...all you can and get it out of the extreme heat, or cold and you would be
set as far as food goes...atleast a lot better than most.
I didn't say steal, but if its TEOTWAWKI then it will be a free for all with all the masses...it would be like black friday, and new nike air sales on
steroids...all in one times 100 or times 1000.
You would be best to avoid anything like that...by having what you need for you now...but it is a good thing as a back up so you can really get a huge
supply for yourself..if it was safe to go in and get it...once TSHTF.
Well this giant warehouse has no markings, no sign, just a bunch of old trucks in the parking lot, and so probably very few people know about it.
Other than those who work there, maybe a hundred people, and the people in the close vacinity who live across the street and that. Most people would
go to the grocery store and loot it and not think about where the grocery store gets its goods from.
If they did, then there are another 10 such warehouses in this city but they look like food depots with big signs and modern buildings and new trucks.
This is the volume sales run by Chinese people or something giant discount wholesaler that probably just delivers pallets and pallets of stuff. And
its in the light industrial part of town, and right close to the giant wholsale food club, and its huge. So people would be looting next door
practically, and the motherlode is right there in all those warehouses.
I think the best option would be to take a big truck full of stuff and somehow secure it. Protect it from the weather, and even take it out of town.
That and your bug out bag and all you might need is some human company and you would need little else. You could get right out of the way and not even
get involved if you wanted to.
This area is not like the US. I have travelled the US and its difficult to get away from where people are.
Not here. You don't have to go far to get away from the masses. Today you will maybe see a forestry truck out there, but then, you will only see other
people trying to flee into the woods. And its all dirt roads for forestry lands and not much else once you get off the one highway that is the main
road. And thats true for most of Canada. One main highway in or out of the city. One main highway across the country.
In the US there is a town every 20 miles or even 10 miles, but here you could go hundreds of miles and not find a town. Next gas 250 miles. You see
signs like that.
