Crisis spurs spike in ‘suburban survivalists’

Crisis spurs spike in ‘suburban survivalists’.

Many people sense in today’s economy that something just isn’t right. People in mass numbers are beginning to take common-sense steps in order to be prepared for what might come.

I recently bought a year’s supply of storable, dehydrated food from eFoodsDirect.Com and I must say that it’s a good feeling to have a “Plan B” to fall back on, just in case. Since I’m an over-the-road truck driver I am very familiar with “just in time” manufacturing and delivery practices. The average supermarket or department store is just three days away from empty shelves at any given time. In an emergency the store shelves can be completely bare within a period of only hours.

My philosophy is that it’s better to be safe than sorry. Even if nothing happens, I’ve still got my year’s supply of storable dehydrated food, purchased at half the price of what I could have bought it for at the local supermarket. Also I don’t have to worry about it going stale for at least 15 years. Prepping is an investment in peace of mind.
