    I went to Costco today in Portland Oregon and there is a box of Mt House survival food ready to go for the sheep for the partly sum of $57.00. I guess TV is having an effect.

    I don't shop at CostCO, but it is my understanding that they have had S&P items for quite a while now. I remember people last year talking about the "survival buckets" they had.

    Just looked as Sams Club website and they have a bunch of 3-day packs, "emergency water" packs.

    There's a lot of gardens around here getting doubled and tripled in size, and a lot of new ones springing up. We're giving away free garden seed at work and it's getting snatched up. Everyone just seems uneasy.

    They had emergency buckets 2 or more years ago. the basic 1 week that the feds recommend for a disaster. The Mountain House stuff was new. I have notices that WalMart has a MT House rack now too with meals and buckets of grain ready to go.

    The easiest way to figure that out, is to see who is sponsoring the Shows.... Follow the Bucks.... "No bucks, No Buck Rogers" as an Astronaut Said long ago.... ...... YMMV.....
