You know the basics; food (water), clothing and shelter. In the event of a complete loss of utilities could you survive long term with your existing preps? This probably has been discussed up, down and sideways already but humor the new guys please. For city dwellers water must be a big concern, especially if you live in an arid environment. How will you cope if city water is shut off? Assuming you already have shelter food is next on the list. Cases of MREs aren't good for the long term. I've read that they don't recommend eating them for more then a few weeks or you can develop digestive issues. Meat is a tough prep to keep. Do you have canned meats in your preps? I'm just curious what you all consider a good cache for the long term. I'm not very well prepared in this regard. I have live animals for eggs and meat but those could be stolen easily. I'm looking for some good advice. Got any?
