Do you have any name brand hatchet that you know is of good quality?
What food should I stock up on?
What should I store the food in?
What items should I put in a bug out bag?
Depends who YOUR back up is...choose a good team of ex seals and or well trained militia and i'm sure "Fortress Wallmart" should work out pretty well for you and your small but effective unit....you could hold out for as long as it takes for order to be restored..
We got some canned meat form grabillmeats.com... My daughter is working down there and bought us a case. I like the ingredients...beef, salt and pepper....chicken, salt, and pepper. It tastes good too, no use eating a bunch of crap. At about seven bucks for a twenty eight oz can it is good tasting. The chicken makes good soup and the beef juice makes good gravy. No used suffering with all that survival crap. This can be rotated because it tastes good and can be used.
