Emergency Food List Preparing Foods For Imminent Crisis

Those who are not ready with emergency food preparedness could face terrible difficulties in adverse situations. The food shortage can make them weak and feeble.

Finding and/or building shelter is as much about your skill as it is the tools at your disposal, and the necessary materials will vary greatly with the terrain in which you happen to be. However, it is very inexpensive and always a good idea to tuck an emergency blanket and an emergency tube tent into a pouch, just in case. A Parachute Cord Bracelet can come in mighty handy too. Of course proper clothing is of utmost importance, and planning ahead for unexpected weather should always be a given. Remember, it is easier to carry clothing you don’t need than it is to manufacture clothing that you don’t have, if you do need it.

You can buy a commercial first aid kit to keep in your pack, but I’d suggest that you either make your own or supplement you kit to include some additional items. Regardless, you should keep the following items in your first aid kit: lip balm, hydrogen peroxide, benadryl, pain/fever relievers, hand sanitizer, afterbite, tweezers, band-aids, gauze pads, medical tape, antiseptic wipes, triple antibiotic wipes, burn jel, scissors and eye wash.

I keep some high visibility surveyors ribbon wrapped around a bit of yardstick. This surveyor’s “tape” is great for tracking your steps in the wilderness or leaving a trail for rescuers. It is very lightweight and can be indispensable if you need to leave a trail.

College dorms across the country consider this simple meal a staple, that is almost required. How many young adults can say they’ve never eaten these simple but flavorful cups of Ramen noodles with vegetables. Available in Chicken, Beef, and Shrimp as well as a couple others.

This spice isn’t as widely used as garlic, but it should be. Its flavor is a few notes off of garlic’s and can be used to complement and heighten dishes in the same way as, or along with, garlic. It can be used alone to create intense flavor, especially when used dried or when simmered in butter or olive oil. It is a good spice to keep in your emergency storage because it keeps its freshness for a long time and can make an otherwise bland meal quite satisfying. Try ground beef with dried onion, steak with onion powder, salt, and ground pepper, or onion powder with sage on turkey breast.

Along with food, you should always keep a supply of potable water because long term food is usually eaten by pouring hot or cold (depending on the dish) water over it. Long term food storage is usually light because reducing the water content of the food also reduces its weight drastically.

Mountain biking is a fun and exhilarating sport as long as you are aware of your abilities and do not try to do more than you are capable of. Pay attention to safety at all times and you will have a great time on your mountain bike and make some wonderful memories.
