    This sounds great. I can't wait!

    Thank you for creating this blog. We need all the help we can get! I have lived in an area with severe winter storms in the winter and tornadoes in the summer, a different one with risk of hurricanes, and where I live now, we have had 4 ice storms over the years with power outages. With every weather emergency, I feel more confident and relaxed because each time I am better prepared. I will look forward to more tips!

    just because u are some distance 100 miles or more from an event you need to store up....went thru rita and ikes aftermath from over 100 miles away the evacs hit our stores like locusts and there wasnt much left on the shelves probably because they had no plan with food or water in it so as a result i stay well stocked....but then had already been a hoarder prior to that always stay stocked is all i can say

    I'm so excited about this blog! I'm always browsing the internet looking for the best deals and this site is my favorite. I can't wait for the new catalog each month to see what's on sale. I'm looking forward to reading other people's ideas and recipes.

    Thanks for doing this blog - I would like to know more about storing water & how to get to our well water in case of an emergency, since the well runs on electricity. Thanks

    Love the blog...helps out the fledgling survivalist a lot with a lot of neat tips. Thanks!

  • Dale Bohman  |  June 3, 2009

    Great to see your blog! I have my own on marketing at http://www.marketingvistas.com

  • Dale Bohman  |  June 3, 2009

    On another thought, you may want to consider setting the blog up on it&#39;s own domain using Wordpress or something like it. I started on blogger but realized there are advantages to your own domain.

    Look like a great way to learn stuff to survive.

    This is my second year at serious gardening. I want to learn all I can about gardening and composting.

  • Karen  |  June 3, 2009

    This is inspiring for someone was feeling overwhelmed after a recent move to a new state. I didn&#39;t have room in our moving van for our food storage, so I had to leave it! I am ready to re-stock using Emergency Essentials. This blog will help me along.

  • Barney and DeeDee  |  June 3, 2009

    I would like to know more about how to plan for eating what you have in order to replenish. We have a one year kit we bought in 2000, and it is good til 2017. Now we have to start eating through it to make room for fresh supplies. <br /><br />Thanks!

  • Anonymous  |  June 3, 2009

    i would like to see a book of best growing times and plants for various states....

  • Carey  |  June 3, 2009

    Thanks for creating this blog. I would like to know more about emergency evacuations....your list of suggested items to grab when you have 5 mins/ 10 mins/ 30 mins/ 1 hr....etc.

  • doolittle  |  June 3, 2009

    I am so glad you have started this blog, lots of good information on it that will be very useful.mahala

  • Anonymous  |  June 4, 2009

    I&#39;m certain this blog will be a wholesome addition to the other preparedness blogs that are out there. Thank you for starting it.

  • Ariel  |  June 4, 2009

    I think it would be a great idea to post information about all the things we can do during the spring and summer months in preparation for the winter. Subjects on what to do with the food we grew using non-hybrid seeds. How to store some and how to retrieve the seeds. Also, because of the heat of summer, some advise on the keeping the foods we already have stored. How best to rotate, suggestions on where to keep our food away from the heat. <br />The blog idea is a great place to share together!<br />B Ariel Belle

  • MerryAnne  |  June 4, 2009

    This is a great idea for a blog! I&#39;m especially interested in &quot;novice gardening&quot; and recipes using food storage items.

  • Dora  |  June 4, 2009

    I would like recipes for using veggies from the garden that uses less energy in case of power outage.

  • Anonymous  |  June 4, 2009

    This is my first time blogging. I would like to know when and how to harvest seeds from non-hybrid vegetables? How to store them? I think this is going to be great!

  • Jewell  |  June 4, 2009

    I would like to see ideas and recipes on using stored items such as wheat, powdered milk, freeze dried veggies, butter powder, etc. I have bought these items but don&#39;t have enough ideas on how to use my open cans up in a timely manner. I would like to be able to use and rotate my storage. Also, I would like easy information on putting together 72 hour emergency kits since it can seem so overwhelming to me. Thank you and good luck with your new blog. I think it will be a great forum.

  • Anonymous  |  June 4, 2009

    What I would like to hear is more of personal experiences, they seem to be very informative, from recipes to emergency preparedness.<br /><br />I have a lot of your products, and they are all great.<br />Connie

  • Melissa Bunker  |  June 4, 2009

    Excellent kit! I plan on buying a kit for our family. Were taking our first excursion on the Blue Ridge!

  • Anonymous  |  June 4, 2009

    This is pretty cool!

  • laura p  |  June 5, 2009

    Being someone who has only been trying to get prepared the for the last year, and is still miles away from success, I have found it hard to find answers, now, we have a chance to share what we have learned and learn from the experts as well as people who are making mistakes and sharing those so we all don&#39;t have to learn we made a terrible mistaken when it is too late to correct.

  • rosie  |  June 5, 2009

    we buy our supplies in bulk through our church group. i found some of your products at walmart in the camping section. we tried them and were very good. just wonder if there will be more selections on this small scale. love your site. <br />rosie in ky.

  • Kelly  |  June 5, 2009

    Thought I&#39;d join the discussion and add my two cents.<br /><br />I&#39;ve been checking out my local thrift stores and found a terrific hikers backpack for $1 . . . filled it with 3 days supply of freezedried foods, dried fruit, power bars, etc.. Also found a small bag (probably a diaper bag) that I filled with medical supplies and toiletries then added a bit of small denomination cash into each. These will be the first two things I grab if I have to evacuate my home for any reason.

  • BobJ  |  June 6, 2009

    Thank you for setting this up. Like many others, I am interested in ideas and recipes to help use the supplies to avoid having to throw things out.

  • Sally  |  June 7, 2009

    This is great! Would like to see a list of items, in order of necessity, that someone on a very limited budget should have on hand. Maybe I could help someone out if they didn&#39;t think they could spare anything to go toward being prepared.
