anyone every try emergency food storage? i bought a case of emergency food in case something ever happens. more and more storms and power outages every year. i havent had to use it in an emergency situation but i did try it one night for the hell of it and it was pretty good.  its a lot better then eating cheese and crackers. also their shelf life is years. i also like mountain house.

I have a Jet Boil and plenty of freeze dried food for it. Just add hot water. Most are pretty good. We keep things liked a variety of canned foods which keep a long time. But the longest we ever lost power was two days and the generator kept the food in the fridge and freezer from spoiling.

This is my go-to for long-term food storage. https://www.beprepared.com

 If you run a camp in a primitive cabin, this is the best stuff to bring with you for a long-week or weekend of hunting.  Dehydrated food lasts 25 years unopened in ideal conditions.  MRE's last 7 years.  Both require boiling water, the difference being that MREs can be prepared in bad water while you need good, clean water for dehydrated food.

I usually keep 3 MREs in the truck.  You never get stranded with a truck full of food, but if you do, three MREs will last you three days.  You can eat them w/o water cold, so they are the most durable food you can bring with you.  It allows you to shelter in place, which is the best thing you can do in a stranded vehicle.

Get this and keep it in the basement.  https://www.beprepared.com/30-day-1-person-emergency-food-kit-qss

Once you open it, keep eating it.  It's enough food for 1 person for 30 days.  That's about a week's worth of food for a family of 4 in a single bucket.

I have 4 or 5 buckets, enough for 6 months for my girl and I, supposedly. I've also been thinking of getting some food safe bags, mylar or such, and buying 20lb bags of rice at the Indian grocery. I have 5 gallon food safe jugs with screw on lids for storage. Rice is dirt cheap and will add bulk to those meals. It also stores well (may need a good desiccant, need to research) 

Of course without a source of clean water and a way to heat it...
