Anyone have any good experiences ordering freeze dried food online? I was thinking of e-foods direct, but I didn't know if they were a stand up company or not.

efoods isn't freeze-dried. It is dehydrated. I think that's better because they don't use chemicals. It's simply removing all moisture and sealing it up really good.

They have gotten all of my orders to me quickly and everything was right. The food is nice too.

While food is important, don't forget to stock up on water filtration equipment and toiletries as well as general cleaning supplies as at some point we're going to want clean skivvies to wear, no? A buddy and I were just going over doomsday scenarios and assessing his basement bunker when I noticed he had everything but water and not a single water filter nor bulk water storage nor showering/bathing capabilities. After a few weeks post-apocalypse I'm sure many of us want the occasional shower beyond a dip in a local watering hole. Just sayin'.

Stored water and filtration, check. I am slowly building my food supply.

My 8X y.o. mother has been asking me about portable water filtration equipment so she can get water out of her lake (if push comes to shove).
My problem is that she's not on sewers out there but an "aeration unit" and after the double tank treatment, the excess goes into the lake.
There are also deer, racoons, oppossums, muskrats, snakes & turtles (salmonella!), with the occassional ducks, geese, and assorted large wading birds.

They say a few drops of household bleach will purify the hell out of pretty nasty water.

Sidebar, last nights "doomsday peppers"....had a couple make hot chocolate with water from their hot tub.....I'd roll the dice on that lake water. Shocked

$70 for a good quality, light weight, and portable water filtration system:
