When I reed the post I was in a hotel room, best I could tell the hotel was filled to capacity. Truth is I have no idea what my resources would be. Anyone in the hotel industry know how much food a hotel has on hand for say 600 guests?

What about those of us who live on a well? I don’t foresee lots of “can’t go outside” issues, and my house is small so most of my supplies live in my detached garage. I do have a 50 gallon hot water heater in the house. BTW, is it OK to go out if I have a gas mask? If your prepared and have the pro...

Both alcohol and caffeinated beverages are a diuretic. You actually loose more then you take in. This is why your flow is always stronger after a good night of drinking. Also why on a road trip you never have a biggie ice-tea from Wendy's.

I’ve been trekking the back country with a MSR Whisperlite Internationale. It has 3 different nozzles for white gas, kerosene and unleaded fuel. I’ve been very happy with it. It primes fast and it’s generous with fuel consumption. It packs very small, and weights next to nothing. Minuses are, stand ...
