Guess a handle of cap'n morgan would be kinda heavy to carry on foot, but good to keep in the car. :)

And I'll opt for a few ounces of good pipe tobacco and a pipe, but preferably rolling papers.

Cheaperthandirt is a good catalog to have layin around....along with the Sportsmansguide Govt. Surplus special catalog.
CTD has the M.R.E entrees now where you can buy just a pack of the main courses, instead of a full MRE. I always have a few stashed in my butt pack just in case I need a quick something. They actually taste rather good.....just might have to add some salt and pepper. If you pack up a small baggie with a single serving entree, some cookies, a fruit cup, trail mix etc....you've got a homemade MRE. No need to heat, but if you do just boil some water.
After eating a single entree....they really do satisfy your hunger pains. You might not get stuffed unless you eat more than one, but will be satisfied....and plus they're loaded with nutrients.
You can really tell the things are designed for soldiers in battle.
Just my $.02

If the SHTF I wouldn't be in my house any longer than it took to load my family and SHTF gear into my truck and head for the parts unknown (to others).

zookrider hope you make it to Texas before SHTF. From what I've heard if you head for unknown territory in Hawaii you could run into people already setup for SHTF. MaryWanna growers. Trespassings a killing offense with them people.

You aint just whistling dixie there boy howdie. :D

I very much hope that the S does not HTF before I make a break from this rock. Only 2 1/2 months left so I figure I'll be alright.

Does anyone think the **** will really hit the fan? I just dont know, it IS one reason that I bought my AR-15 though, that and I always wanted one.
I think there could be a remote possibility of it considering the chances of another terrorist strike on our homeland. I saw the Cincinnati riots first hand several years ago and Ill tell you what, if it would have happened here, I definately would have left my house! Kind of hard to chase off a bunch of rioters pillaging every building that they come to, we have to sleep at some point, plus there is the safety of my family to think of. Maybe I should pack my old rucksack and keep it ready just in case. You all have some great looking weapons!

I can't get this in the shtf bag dammit!!!

Throw a molotov cocktail on your house? Not if it's my house. If he can see that I've got a gun, it's because it'll be pointing at him. So if he winds up to throw...168 BTHP between the eyes.
