I'll buy that, but not everyone stocking up is a left coaster.

I'm curious why people have made that decision. Not throwing stones. Curious.

I know that there is also the sense that there could be a man-made disaster, too. The Rodney King riots come to mine, and all those gentlemen wanted were color TVs and sofas. Should there be some sort of other collapse, economic or otherwise, I would hate to be within their reach if they and their kids were hungry.

Always pays to be ready for anything. And if people are wrong, what the heck? We just have more provisions for weekend sailing.

I have nothing useful to add. I'm just trying to get my post count up so I can actually "use" this forum!

Equally Important

How much ammunition do you have stored in the gun locker? So you can keep your food.

The one I have made and use makes about 8 to 10 gallons a day, which is plenty to keep the h2o tanks topped off.
cheers
Sailing the Farm is a great book. A real shame what happened to the author.

we live about 1.5 hours from new orleans ,didnt get much damage from katrina. for at least a month after katrina all the shelfs in the grocery stores
stayed almost bare.

many people had houses full of realitives from new orleans who were staying
with them so they were buying huge amounts of food.

the stores would be reordering the food but could not keep up .
