It all started when a buddy of mine cleaned out his food stockpiles and gave me about 8 1/2 cases of MREs. Not being the one to pass up free food preps, I gladly accepted the MREs and loaded them up in the SUV. On the way home my wife and I decided to get one of those plastic shelving systems from a local big box mart.
One side of my sons closet was cleaned out, the shelving system was assembled and the MREs were put on the shelves in order to when the test / inspect date. The ones dated in 2011 were put on the bottom, the ones dated in 2010 on the second shelf up from the bottom, and the ones that your supposed to test were put on the third shelf up from the bottom. Some backpacks / daypacks were put on the very top shelf.
The following video is the one that I posted on youtube.
Yep, you read that right, zombies are real. Not real as in wanting to eat your brains, but real as in mindless people with no sense of reason and incapable of higher thought.
To live a survivalist lifestyle, one should be open minded, open to new ideas, flexible, open to suggestions and open to change. To be closed minded, to be inflexible and not open to change sets a limit on how well we can adjust to change.
What caused the Neanderthal to go extinct?
What caused Cro-Magnon Man to go extinct?
What caused Homo-Erectus to go extinct?
Was it their inability to adjust to climate change? Was it their inability to adjust to changing food sources? Were they open to new ideas?
Sheeple are the people that say “we have done it this way 100 years, there is no reason to change now”. These are the people who resist any kind of change. When sheeple are forced to change, they get angry and develop feels of resentment. These are the people that are on a dead end road of life.
I wonder if some Neanderthal refused to change his hunting patterns with the changes in herd migration? […]
Don’t want to stockpile 1,000 pounds of dried rice and beans? Want something that taste a little better then MREs? Want something that you don’t have to worry about rotating out?
One of the main problems with stockpiling survival food preps, is that people sometimes stockpile what they do not normally eat. So the food stocks sit in a closet, expire, and have to be thrown out. In the long run its easier to stockpile what your family normally eats so rotation is handled in a natural manner.
