Not About Food 127

The End of the World as We Know it

In these darkening economic times, I have been thinking about setting up an "emergency preparedness pantry. I have read the Mormon's thoughts on food storage (they believe you should have a year's worth of provisions on hand at all times) and some of the Canadian government website info which suggests its important to stock up on things you will actually want to eat in extremely stressful times. I have also perused many websites selling keg of nitrogen packed wheat kernels etc. Anyone want to make suggestion of what to stock up on for an emergency, for someone who has no intention of having a rifle as one of the major components!

My freezer is well stocked at the best of times, and I have a standby battery pack good for a few hours, plus an old Armoire in the basement for storage. I also have two butane stoves and four 4 gallon plastic water containers.

What else should I consider?
