Storable Good for Survival


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm really worried that some big catastrophe could hit humanity within the next few years and that the average Jo like me might end up queuing in a bread line if we're not prepared (see infowars.com and the links on there for more info).

Does anyone in Thailand make long-term storable foods (e.g. which are per-packaged and can last between 10 and 20 years)?.

I'd rather prepare 10 years too early than one day too late!

I didn't say that we would die. I said a global catastrophe, which would mean that food and necessities would be in very short supply. This conspiracy has been going on for decades and it's reaching it's conclusion very soon!

Please see infowars.com and prison planet.tv for more info about all this.

Everyone reading this should start getting prepared NOW, before it's too late!

I want to preface this by saying I think that end of the world survivalists and apocalyptic conspiracists are nutjobs.

You might want to get into retort canning, and learn the old methods of drying meats. You should also learn how to cultivate heirloom seeds and replenish them every few years.

To be honest in the unlikely event such a global calamity occur, my main concern would be getting out of Thailand with my family. I wouldn't really fancy my chances here as a farang in Thailand if there was some sort of societal breakdown that these doom and gloomers seen to be fixated on.

Plenty of rice, lasts forever if stored dry and free of creatures.

Same for flour. Canned goods can also last 10-20 years if kept rust free.

Fill up some of those large plastic tubs/barrels/dustbins with rice in sealed plastic bags, then tape the tub and put somewhere dark and dry..

Thailand is one of the few countries that could survive global catastrophe, relatively unchanged.

Food is grown locally using primitive farming methods, lack of petrol, not a problem.

I suppose if you live where there's ample fire wood and water that'll work for awhile (until people without your planning skills decide to liberate your stockpile of rice), but if civilization as we know it evaporates, those of us in urban areas will probably discover that a watched pot never boils when there's no electricity. Actually that tends to happen when a non-apocalyptic rain shower happens anyway.

Uncooked rice. Yum.

You could store a few gas cylinders, only 300bht for 16Kg and lasts 3 months.

So 40 cylinders would last 10 years and cost 12,000bht.

Not so hard to store hidden away.

Most Thais use gas or wood for cooking.

forget about grains, canned food etc. how about one that could last a long time, doesnt require cooking, cheap and more importantly protein packed and calories dense and save storage spaces? a room packed will these will provide your for decades

does anyone know if Thai customs would stop you from bringing in freeze dried foods into the country? like a backpack full of Mountain House backpacker meals? or military style MRE's? just one backpack full.

The 300 baht is to refill or exchange a cylinder for one that you have. New filled cylinders are 2000+ baht each, so that's 80000 baht for 40 cylinders not 12000. Upcountry most Thais use homemade charcoal for cooking.

Personal security is the real issue here. Good luck with that in Thailand. Since you have really zero legal rights here in Thailand as demonstrated daily by the Thai police's road blocks and no "probable cause" laws, no guaranteed right to travel freely... no search warrants, the list goes on...

You need to be in a country with PEOPLE that have some sense of law and order, the right to be legally armed to the teeth, set up with a farm and a group of people to work together. Do you have that?

If not enjoy being the Road Warrior in Thailand for as long as you survive. :)

and stay off the internet, it causes depression and that leads to catastrophic thinking.
