This is for those who have or do prepare and not naysayers. Thank you

If you had extra money, what would you spend it on?

Freeze drier machine to do your own?
Would you buy freeze dried food or do your own?
Water?

Tell me what you’d do.
Isaiah 5:20 (KJV)
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

You can Freezer Dry most produce in any Frost Free Freezer . The water sublimates out readily . Takes a while depending on the load and really helps to have a small PC fan or three inside moving air around between Defrosting Cycles of the Freezer .

Then any little Vacuum Sealer for long term storage .

Lasik surgery next week for me. Been on my prepping list for a bit but chickened out a few months ago. I think it's getting close to show time now so I want to get it done. Contacts will be a pain in butt during a shtf period.

If I had extra money I’d add to the water and ammo I already have

Should probably get some food too Hiding3

Lots of ammo is my best suggestion.

As far as food goes invest in decanters because when sdhtf there will likely be no way to do it unless you already have some type of solar/windmill/hydro electricity systems going and,even then,batteries will only be good for so long.

Food that has already been freeze dried,though, will stay good in a root cellar for a while so as long as you can store enough you would be fine

Micro Greens seeds. 10 pounds of those will feed a family of six for a year for less than $500.00. Harvest every 9 days of super food. Have them in your bug out bag and rest easy for that long stay in a safe area. Look it up. Biggest bang for your buck.

Correction. 100 pounds. Forgot to add an extra zero. My bad.

Stay healthy stay fit eat MG. Never run out of food. Let them grow to adult and replenish your seed supply. For ever....

If I had the money, the space and the TIME. There is maintance involved.

I would then ADD one to my already ongoing preps, but only after I already had everything else lined out.

You can use a pressure canner over fire and coals if need be... Hard to use a freeze drier the way.

As for ammo and water as others have said, damn right.. NONE of it means jack shit if someone else takes it from you.. And food is nice, but water is essential.. How you gonna reconstitute all those freeze dried goodies?

If the money time and space is there hell yeah it would be a nice PART of an over all plan, but not the end all be all by a long shot.

A five gallon bucket of sand with holes in the bottom for drainage which can be found anywhere along with boiling the filtered water will reconstitute your food supply and keep you hydrated as well.

I have a dehydrator, i bought it at a liquidation place. I guess I could make my own but I haven't. I just go to Walmart, buy rice, dried kidney beans, lentils, canned goods, anything vacuum packed is good for 100 years, even that Stagg Chili. I never got into buying survival food cause its expensive and you have to have room to store it. I think its good to keep a lot of canned tuna onhand, its easy to prepare. Make sure you have a manual canopener, not an electric. If the grid goes down, you will end up with this pile of food and nothing to open it with.
