    It does and it keeps much longer than gas. Its just nice to have the flexability to use what you can get your hands on.

    In a few weeks the local farm stores will be getting in their baby chicks and ducks, after a couple weeks the unsold critters have eaten more than they can be sold for so the store either gives them away or marks them down to like a quarter apiece. If you have a rural property it takes very little to keep some chickens about, basically a place for them to get out of the weather and roost at night, maybe a bag or so of cracked corn to supplement their foraging diet every couple months. Almost free eggs and meat. Accurate alarm clock too.

    I think some spare coffee would really hit the spot after some time without much. A coffee pot that can be used over a flame.

    Sounds like a good thing to go get right now!

    How about taking all the suggestions you get and put them on one list and have everyone vote on priority level.

    Oh yeah hand crank meat grinder.
    Blankets, firewood?

    A few years back I almost died from a heat stroke. No fun at all. The worst cramps I've ever had, along with kidney failure. When I finally got out of the hospital ,they told me to drink as much Gatoraide as I could when I was working.
    I think a high electrolyte POWDERED drink mix would be another possible life saver in a time of stress.

    dont forget lots of salt! when power is down, and refrigeration is no more, it will be about the only way to preserve food.
    i would also get lots of extra clothing/blankets as well, because that furnace wont be running if TSHTF.

    tarps for shelter, collecting rainwater, protecting gear, matches/firestarters, water purification, white gas, propane, BATTERIES, .......

    I'm going to buy some REAL tarps. I've had it with the poly crap & the inevitable mess to clean up.

    Although I guess you might not want to collect drinking water on a treated canvas tarp?

    Spare car batteries & maybe an extra tire or two?

    Lots of baking soda for many uses & it's cheap.
