The SHTF homie that gave me a copy of his wholesale price list of Mountain House foods said he spoke with them, and this is what he said:
We won’t be carrying MTN HOUSE goods anymore. They haven’t even gotten they’re first shipment from them! I’ve heard that the govt has been buying all that they can get their hands on? Do they know something we oughta?
I’ve heard the rumor on the government buying up Mountain House foods a few times. I have no idea whether it’s fact or fiction, or if it’s fact, what the reason might be. In any case, dude didn’t get his order.
Seriously though, as the world descends into most certain chaos and survival samurais determine the best method to stash some grub, you know what the most cost effective method it, and it isn’t Mountain House #10 cans. It’s food grade buckets, mylar bags, oxygen absorbers, bulk grains, legumes, and such.
This approach is far more economical.
I called all around God’s creation (bakeries, large kitchens, etc.) looking for used food grade buckets they didn’t want, and I couldn’t find any. Annoyingly, I had to pay for them.
If you do get into storing bulk grains and such, you’ll eventually want a Country Living Grain Mill. They’re freaking awesome. I wish I had one, but it’s not in the budget at this time.
