Obviously,by reading this,you must be semi interested in prepping.Personally,I do a little bit,but nothing like some of the websites claim to do.The
standard is "bean's,bullet's,and band aid's". Read some of the articles they write,and claims of 500 pounds of rice,beans,and wheat,and 10k
rounds of ammo,4 AR15's,and so on.And of course 500 mre's,or freeze dried food.Sounds like an episode of doomsday preppers! I realize that buying in
bulk can be a major cost savings,but even at a dollar a pound,they have 1500 in food,4 ar's would be 6 grand,and 10 grand in ammo.The big site's
even recommend night vision and ham radios.Then of course a monster truck bug out vehicle.
How on earth can you bug out with all this in a standard truck?500 pounds of rice,in 5 gallon buckets,lets guess at 50 pounds per bucket,is 10
buckets.Beans and wheat add 20 more buckets.Don't forget your wheat grinder! And the sugar,salt,yeast,whatever to make bread.There's an easy 1500
pounds,at least.What will 10k rounds of ammo weigh? And you need water...
See my point? How can any of these claims be real,unless you own a tractor trailer bug out rig!
