Provisioning made easy

BJ's takes all the thinking out of provisioning and puts it all into a nice compact package:

Re: Provisioning made easy

My parents got one of these packs from Cosco. I have a few things out of it, like some TVP (flavored), and a few cans of dried meals...

It's similar to camping style dried meals in a bag. The photo with cheese on the nice looking chili, plates full of meat, stacks of pancakes with butter... yeah, that's all lies.

Personally, I'd prefer a few cases of MRE's. At least MRE's have real meat and some decent stuff packaged in single servings (very handy)

No doubt this would be good stuff to store for an emergency. Although I think buying dried beans and rice and other basic non-refrigerated foods would go a lot further on a lot less money... I guess it's good if you really want to remove the thought process of provisioning, and you're not too keen on eating healthy or enjoying your meals.

I imagine they will sell a lot of that what with the doomsday shows and all.

It has dehydrated beer. Just add water and alcohol.

Re: Provisioning made easy

200$ a month for food per person is kind of high, but on the right hand side of the page, you can get an entire years worth of food for two people for 1,899$. That's a pretty sweet deal if you ask me. Besides, it's not like you have to eat it all at once, or all at the same time.

As for it being dog food, well... I spend maybe 5 minutes eating a day. That's military training for you. I'm still waiting for the 1 a day pill that supplies all the vitamins and nutrients you need, never hungry. Easier to store.

Re: Provisioning made easy

WIlly WOnka did it in a stick of gum, with all the flavours included!

Of course, there were some problematic side effects...

So it doubles as an extra PFD. Really, I don't see what the big deal is.

Here we go, something like this but smaller, or maybe liquid: http://www.bjs.com/life-gear-30-day-...?dimId=2004053

Check out the review!

It tasted ok so it would be good if you are in a bind but I wouldn't want to try and survive on it for any length of time. I would recommend it only for a last resort back up.

Not that there was ever any real threat of the world ending on the winter solstice....but they found another Mayan Calendar that goes well beyond 2012.

Nothing to see here....move along.

Oh, and to all the doomsday preppers who spent all that money digging shelters and stocking food....LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!

Re: Provisioning made easy

provisioning a full time cruise boat is not magic nor rocket science--is like buying groceries for home, as it is home.
