Gwyddone, Remember that when the SHTF your friends will be at your door for your food since they didn’t prepare. This is a problem when you tell many people about you storing food and water. Be ready and know that many will come so save extra food because it will be hard to turn them down. Also think of it as they will help you keep a watch of your place 24/7 for the food and water. If you own a weapon you may want to buy one or two more weapons for them too.
