Well, I have to say that this really doesn't even make sense. Who would complain about three days worth of food? Unless...say, it is spread out
over the floor or stored on top of the counter because there isn't any other place to put it?
Three extra days stored away somewhere is certainly NOT anything to complain about. It is good, common sense. In fact, they say 72 hrs of water of
some protein is a bare minmum for ANY kind of natural disaster where you loose access to your infrastructure. It is just basic preparedness.
For example, where we live, there is the potential for serious flooding. Happens almost every year, but so far we have managed to not have to
evacuate. But it could happen and has in the past here. We also have three large dams upriver that could bury our area under many feet of water in a
half-hours notice. I have two live volcanos less than 50 miles from me. I live on top of the Cascadia subduction zone. So. For me NOT to be
prepared is just plain stupid, right? This is basic common sense stuff. I have chosen to have a bug-out bad supplied with 72 hrs worth of stuff plus
survival gear in a backpack by the front door. I have a few gallons of extra water in my house....a few down in the garage in case we can't get into
the house (house is elevated) and several stashed out in the 5th wheel. Since I don't have space inside, I decided to keep at least two weeks of
food stocked in the 5th wheel. I figure this way, in case we need to pick up and go in a hurry, we can take the food and supplies with us! We then
use this food in the summer time when we go on vacation and I re-stock it again for the next year. Works pretty good.
I say approach it from just a common sense stance. Go over what your local, realistic concerns are for natural disasters and plan for that first. If
they don't agree to THAT, well then I think maybe they just aren't very intelligent.
