    Yea, I remembered the money belt now, yesterday I just put an order through with amazon. DUH. Guess for now I will be walking around with a funny looking chest. Have a small bag that goes around the neck and can stick money in my bra if need be. Thanks for reminding me about a roll of quarters. I did get extra rolls just in case. Will put a roll in my bag.

    Here's a thread I started last spring about what to put in a go bag where it's not a survival situation, but more of an evacuation event. Some of you responded in that thread, but I think it's worth reviewing for ideas. I know that discussion helped me a lot.

    shoiji - I know you have food allergies/sensitivities, are you able to eat rice? Rice cakes (plain) keep for a long time, especially in an airtight bag/container. You can top those with almost everything.

    How do you keep rice cakes from getting stale? I can't, even when they're in original packaging and unopened. It's been frustrating. They're not very filling or nutritional, but I like them with herbed yogurt cheese.

    I've never had a problem with them. Odd. I will admit that I buy the brand name ones vs generic, maybe thats the diff?

    I've never even seen generic ones. I buy the Quaker ones.

    Yes I know I can eat rice cakes, I do have some packages of different types of rice cakes. My only concern with them is what type of facility they are made in and if there are traces of other products like dairy, flour, soy, etc. After all there are different types of rice cakes. Had an ah moment when I realized I should just make some type of crackers that I can store in a tin.

    Rice cakes don't have much nutritional value. As much as I like them, I wouldn't put them in emergency supplies because of the space they take vs. the nutritional value. Though if I had allergies to consider, that might make a difference. They would be better than taking along a loaf of bread, and there are all kinds of things that make good toppings.

    I have a pretty good stockpile and am adding things along. I haven't enough water on hand though. I have heard you can can water. Has anyone had any experience doing it? I have some half gallon jars I could do it in. I really do not worry about having it in glass jars. One thing we haven't had any of is earthquakes. I am adding to my stockpile all along, not so much for a disaster, more for the unforeseen illness, layoff, etc. This week I added 3 jars of peanut butter, a jar of molasses , 25 pounds of sugar, some brown rice, and two large (bulk) containers of ketchup.
