We are enjoying the last hour of Christmas 2011, and wanted to wish you all a melancholy Christmas. Not only am I thankful for what I have, but am also mindful of the past and what’s in store for the future.
This version of Joni Mitchell’s “River” from Cindy Alexander (winner of NBC’s Star Tomorrow) emphasizes that every turning point in our lives is a decision not to be made lightly. There is no CTRL-Z “undo” button in real life, and that not every wrong can ever be made right.
The best way we can prepare for our future is to “be prepared” which is why we focus so much on survival preparation such as freeze dried food storage and other essentials.
Any time freeze dried food from a reliable distributor is offered on sale, it’s always a good investment to stock up! Food pouches have a 7-year shelf life and so you don’t need to buy all your long-term food storage at once, but can buy a little here and there as you find good deals.

Cost Per Serving
At $36.99, you are paying $4.11 per serving. I am counting 9 servings: 6 dinners and 3 breakfasts. The breakfast entrees cost a little less if buying separately than dinner entrees, but you get 3 vegetables pouches so we can say the equivalent of 9 entrees. For example, the Sweet & Source Pork with Rice entree is usually $7.13 (and Nitro-Pak has the best prices on Mountain House freeze dried food pouches already).
You can also get free shipping from Nitro-Pak if you spend $100. If you don’t have to pay tax or shipping, and you are getting freeze dried food at a great price.
The inventory levels on Mountain House #10 cans are being replenished at your favorite emergency preparedness stores. Not all entrees are available, so you’ll definitely want to check a few different places.
We’ve also seen some adjustments in price as the surge in activity since the 8.9 Japan earthquake and Tsunami (and subsequent nuclear meltdown) caused the surge in food storage demand.
Online food storage is becoming more competitive and that gives you, the buyer, better prices and more selection.
