BM, is my escape from disaster response - im lucky enough to get to clean up other peoples messes for a living. So when I read your line I snortled milk through my nose. Because if i spent the post apocalypse like I do at BM. I would either be trashed, or working - not a bad mix when you look at it.
RE: " A three months supply of food at any given time in stores..." This is not so, while there is enough food in the entire system, from the field, in the processing plants and in cold storage - the truckers are the Achilles heel in the system. Without transport almost every metropolitan area would be empty in 3 days. Without a constant flow of truckers, trains as well as the merchant marines our nation grinds to a halt and starves in short order. Think of whatever regional disaster would cripple transportation or a nationwide fuel shortage. Thats the most likely threat. Where do you think the truck driver or train engineer will be in a nation wide or global catastrophe - they are not going to be delivering frozen pizzas to Safeway I guarantee it.
