    14 million is not enough for the bay area let alone the west coast.


    But if one is low or the supply is getting close to being dated it may be time to stock up..

    And why before the first of next month:The packages must be delivered on or before February 1, 2014.

    Good thing to have on hand for sure but I think having some re-hydration drink mix in case of Cholera would be a very good thing as well. If SHTF cholera often follows. At least know how to mix your own batch.

    Strange. My latest Iostat shipment arrived just today. :)

    Hey, I'm all for a good conspiracy theory, but Fukushima is so freaking real, along with its threat, this one needs no help.
