"Yes, honey, I know it is only 6 weeks to Hawaii, and yes, I know we have a chartplotter, a backup chartplotter, an Iphone with a nav app which is also loaded on the iPad, paper charts, a sextant, radar, a compass, but just in case we MISS HAWAII, could you make sure there is at least 50 pounds of bacon on board?"

Good god, tsunami wreckage DRIFTED from Japan to British Columbia in less than 6 months. Just how slow is your boat, anyway?

Depends on how long it's been since I've been shopping. Generally Good Eats lasts 1 - 3 weeks. Cans and dried but still pretty good for another couple of weeks. Another few weeks that are pretty boring.

In the summer usually somewhere between three days and week's worth plus a well stocked bar.

But then who would think I'm a terrorist? Just because I have black hair, a thick beard, olive skin that darkens up like a Sicilian in the summer, my head always covered because of my bald spot......Hey wait a minute!

Was't there a comedy routine that started out, "You may be a terrorist if..."??

Whenever we are heading out I like to have a couple of weeks supply on board but then we are never all that far from a town centre of some kind.

What I do not understand is the concept of stocking up for months at a time. Find that hard to work out.

Livia ... you mention seven months of pre cooked bacon !! WTF ?? Maybe Kirkland bacon is really out of this world but man that does not compute for me. For one bacon is pretty damned easy to find even in the smallest of one seahorse islands but if I had to go without bacon for a week or so it sure as hell would not concern me.

One other thought ... I do find that when I am living on boat my diet is quite different to when I am shore. Not by necessity but by taste bud demands though my shore diet is now starting to be more akin to my on board. If I was to stock up boat for multi months I know for certain I'd end up throwing half of it away as I happily tucked into fresh local produce instead of the preserved.

memo to self .... learn to fish. I know I should but I don't. Meanwhile the amount of fish and squid being hauled up by the others we were anchored near at Broughton Island made me realise I have to pull my finger out.

Good old Hickory Smoked bacon is worth it's weight in gold in da islands. Figure you will be out of stock by the time you hit Tonga. Betta save a pound for the passage to New Zealand..you'll be needing some comfort food on this leg.

I have six months worth of dried beans and split peas, several years worth of dried eggs, several months worth of canned meat. I usually try to carry a years worth of brown rice. In the Pacific Islands, the only beans you can get most places, comes in cans, and is expensive, bulky and heavy.. Split peas? Forget it. Ditto whole wheat and brown rice , in many places. Bug free rice and flour? Non existent in French territory. If the infrastructure were to break down, Vancouver Island has three days worth of food, total. After one stormy day in Comox, the supermarket lineups were huge. Shows that many people don't even have two days worth of food on hand.
Break a mast, and have to sail under reduced jury rig, and spare food determines survival odds.

Brent, I concur. Be it a natural or a man-made disaster, we're going to stay prepared for what might happen if the bad side of people comes out. We keep our office stocked as well as our boat.
