Three Day Bug Out Test

Smoker on wheels

Back in July of 2008, (July 4th weekend to be exact), my family and I went up to the deer camp. While the kids were having fun playing in the creek, I was taking notes. To my family it was just a relaxing weekend. To me, it was time to test some stuff and take notes.

The observations play a role in my pepping plans.

Infant Formula / Baby Food

While we were at the camp my step daughter ran out of powdered formula. Its no big deal, we just drove the 15 – 20 miles back to town. On the flip side, what if we could not make the trip? What if there was no store with baby food stocks?

After hurricanes and other natural disasters food shipments are disrupted, this includes baby food.

Joe is at the age were he can eat real food from our table. If we were not able to get formula, he would have had to eat from his mothers plate.

Cooking

This was no big deal. I pulled the pit to the camp and smoked 2 briskets over night, for about 12 hours. Then the next morning I put 2 racks of ribs on. Along with some beans, and corn on the cob. You talk about GOOD!!!! My stepsons truck in the background. We also cooked a package of chicken legs.
