I have 4 cases of MRE's, with 7-9 days of food per case, so a minimum of 28 days. I could have it loaded on my boat in about 10 minutes.

I love it:

The Dept. of Health and Human Services and FEMA want you to have several days of water and canned food on hand to survive a natural catastrophe.

The Dept. of Homeland Security suspect you of being a terrorist for doing so.

That's it, I say we arrest everyone at HHS and FEMA for foementing terrorism and insurrection.

We probably have a good three months of food that we keep stocked. Just in case something happens, like a major earthquake or whatever, we're prepared. Other than that it's nice to be able to just head out for a weekend at Catalina without needing to provision for it.

During the summer I have enough food and booze onboard to stay fat and happy for at least two weeks, maybe more. Next fall, however, I'll likely have at least 30 days supply when I head down the ditch. Guess I'll be right at the top of the most wanted list.

Cheers,

Gary

We're probably good for 3 weeks to a month (although it would get pretty ugly after the first 7-10 days. We'd run out of fresh greens and RUM). Feb 2010 in the Bahamas Out Islands, the fronts were coming through every 3 days or so. We were "lucky" to have been stormbound within an easy drive of Rock Harbour and its grocery stores; other friends spent 2-1/2 weeks unable to leave the boat in the Bahamas Land & Sea Park (no stores at all, they were dependent on what they and other cruisers on nearby moorings had stowed).

Isn't there another batch of initials that get ya for expecting consistency in government?

The best part about not being a gourmand is that food choices are easier. Actually though, when I think about it, I have more food than the means to prepare it. I'd run out of propane first, so it would be dinghy to shore and build a fire.

Just finished stocking up in Penang. Basic supplies would last about 3 months. Fresh stuff is stocked up on a weekly or so basis depending on the anchorages proximity to local markets. Nice not to have to run to the store. New supply of fish hooks and lures so will be catching fish...I hope.

This is the way to go.

Even cruising coastal - you can get stuck in an anchorage for 5+ weeks because of bad weather. Need to eat....
