Mountain House Sale!

Prepared Ninja partner, Camping Survival is having a huge sale on Mountain House! For those that may not be familiar, Mountain House is typically considered the freeze dried food company of choice for preppers, backpackers, etc. They have a long history and are not one of these companies that have popped up to try to make a buck of the popularity of preparedness. Mountain House has been making freeze dried meals for the U.S. Army Special Forces since the 1960’s and since then has gained popularity for the flavor of the meals, the ease of preparation (add hot water and stir), and the fact that there are so many people that swear by Mountain House!

You will also find that Mountain House foods last a LOT longer than the other freeze dried foods on the market. Most of the other companies claim a 5 year shelf life on their pouch meals as compared to 12 years for the Mountain House pouches.

Camping Survival has 72 Mountain House items marked down including their #10 cans, pouches, and bucket assortments. It is a great opportunity. Buy your Mountain House food storage before you miss out on the great selection.

If you are not convinced yet, see what some others had to say:

If you are looking for a tasty freeze-dried vendor for your next camping trip, long term storage plans or Bug Out Bag, Mountain House gets my vote.

-Pat Henry, The Prepper Journal

Like most of their meals, the Mountain House Noodles and Chicken is very tasty and a huge upgrade from the majority of the new comers in the market. The meal quickly sets up and is a hearty , you can eat it with a fork unlike some soupy entrees Iv’e had recently from Wise Foods.

When you are looking for quality freeze dried meals, look no further than Mountain House Freeze Dried Food.

This is only a sampling of what is out there but as you can see there are some pretty good reviews. Now I think if I looked hard enough, I could find some less glamorous reviews but this is no different than any other product out there. As they say, “haters gonna hate.”

One last thing, Camping Survival is offering a free bottle of KIO3 with every purchase of $100 or more. This is a bottle of 90 FDA approved tablets of potassium iodate, the active ingredient needed to block the absorption of radiation in the thyroid following a nuclear or radiological event. This single bottle can sustain a family of four adults for 10 days following a nuclear or radiological disaster which makes it a great bonus!

 

Prepping Gems From The Web

One of the great things about the internet is that it is always being updated. It is a constant and never ending process. While this is great, it also means that it is impossible to keep up with everything. With that in mind, here are a few items that I found over the last week or so that I though were worth passing on to you. Hopefully, there will be at least one thing of value to you.

Super Easy Survival Bread

This last  week I stumbled across a REALLY simple recipe for a bread that could easily be made in a survival situation or even just a time of personal economic difficulty. There are only four ingredients and an oven is not required. Check out the recipe from BeSurvival.com.

12 Gauge is Enough Gun

In the last release of All Outdoor’s newsletter, they included an article on shotguns and why the 12 gauge caliber of shotgun is the universal do-it-all smoothbore gauge. It is a well versed take on why there should be no substitute for the 12 gauge when it comes to smoothbore firearms. Read the whole article here.

How To Hide Your House From Google Maps

This article originally appeared on Off The Grid News in October of last year and has the step by step instructions on how to block the street view of your house on Google maps. What is significant about this process is that it can also be used to block license plates, cars, or even people if you feel that you would rather not have you or your property on display to the world. Read the article as well as the necessary steps to complete the process here.

Yard Sale Prepping

The Backyard Pioneer shared a piece on prepping and the use of garage or yard sales to obtain items at a fraction of the price for which they could usually be acquired. While it is not a comprehensive list, there are some good pointers and the article highlights a solid strategy for preparing on a budget. Check it out here.

How To Plan A Bug Out Route For Emergency Evacuation

Graywolf Survival has a great article on how to plan a bug out route. Not only does the article cover how to plan a bug out route but also how to assess a route and the follow up steps that should be taken once you have selected your route(s). Plan your bug out route here.

Quick-Start Guide for Preparedness Newbies

If you have not had the chance to review it yet, James Wesley Rawles over at Survival Blog has compiled a wealth of pertinent survival information for the new prepper. While this info is geared toward newbies, it is a valuable reference for any level of survival minded individual. My recommendation would be printing a copy to keep as a guide to prioritize and keep track of your progress. View the guide here.

Ah…Nuts!

All you peanut butter lovers out there had better think about making it to the store sooner as opposed to later.  For those that have not heard by now, due to poor weather conditions and not enough peanuts being planted in the first place, the cost of this years peanut supply to peanut butter producers is double what it was last year.  So what does this mean to you?  Peanut butter companies like Jif and Skippy are saying that price hikes in the 30% to 40% range should occur in less than a month or so.  It is also likely that these name brand products are going to be the most available as some store brands are discontinued because of the shortage.  Jif has already narrowed their product line by removing some of their expanded offerings like their honey infused peanut butter.  I have already gone out and purchased enough PB to go with my J and I would encourage you to do the same before it becomes cheaper to have caviar and jelly sandwiches.
