    Yeah that is true they found water that was? a billion years old underground apparently and they had some test dummy test it out by drinking it they also found water in a hidden compartment in a high school gym as long as it’s in a dark spot it’s pretty much good forever…

    The canned goods are sealed fine and will actually last well beyond their expiration dates. They may lose some of their nutritional value after? a period of time after the expiration, but they keep their flavor for the most part. As for the other foods, since the making of this vid I’ve sealed those up. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for watching!

    right water, Does not expire, If its Bottled in a sanitary way,..AT ALL, Its clean, but? ma grow alga when in doubt BOIL IT. Distill it, Use it to wash clothes, Flush toilets, Wash dishes,…Do not waste it. Re Use the Bottles.
    Use it up wear it out,..Make it do,…OR DO WITH OUT.
    Forget the freezer, for Fresh Sortable meat, CAN ALL YOU possibly can. MEATS rots when electricity goes out.

    hey man, I’m about to start some food storage prep. We dont have basements in my part because of flood, but was wondering why yo dont seal these foods? Are these adequate as they are? I’m wanting to do the? whole Mylar thing, especially since I’ll be storing in a non climate controlled environment

    Add a bit of bleach to it and it won’t expire. You can then let it evaporate or boil it off when you? want to use it.

    Well… having some food and necessary items stored away isn’t all about a collapse….just being proactive in case there’s an emergency like say…hmmmm SANDY? Maybe you lose power for a few days or even weeks… Where’s your plan B then? if you’re not prepared? Thanks for watching!

    Since this video posted, Mice and cockroaches have eaten half of the stock pile. LOL Store your food in sealed containers. Canned food is OK to leave on the shelf, but not rice in plastic bags. lol ?

    Dude its water you get? a damn filter and use it. Good GOD man if you , ahhh never mind!!!!

    In the 2 1/2 years since you posted this? I hope you have read something about nutrition.Most of the items you show have BPA[canned goods] which are hormone disrupters, MSG is nerou-toxic{dry mixes] and your salt has trace minerals removed. Sugar should only be used in small amounts,refined sugar lowers your immune response for a number of hours. Try more natural dry foods like various beans that can be sprouted or whole grains nitro packed.But you prepping that’s good,don’t want to be too neg.
