E Prep And The Daily Grind

With luck, the grind is minimal. Emergency preparedness is inescapable. The Navy Seals say, "You never need it until you really, really need it."

Make the Mountaineer's ten essentials the core of your home furnishings, and you will never have to worry about bailing in the face of the big one. The emergency food and water supplies recommended by civil authority are indistinguishable from the traditional pantry stocks of the Latter Day Saints and my grandmother's very own metal cupboard. The rule of thumb is to buy what you eat and eat what you buy.

The ten essentials save energy. The pantry buys time when dinner looms and enthusiasm for cooking does not. Raiding the tuna and canned peaches now and then simply rotates stock.    -30-
