Probably a bit of an overkill, but there was a deal to be had for buying 32 packages. No worries as it'll be useful for other pursuits such as backyard or camping. There's no such thing as too much preparedness.
I noticed a unique issue of Newsweek on the magazine stands recently. I had to grab it just out of curiosity.
Here's what Amazon had to say about it:
"Many ponder leaving the trappings of modern life behind and going off the grid--whether for safety preparedness or simply to see if they're up to the challenges of finding shelter, food and water and sustaining their own life. Off Grid is a guide to not only surviving, but thriving. Filled with first-person accounts, anecdotes, expert how-tos and tips-everything from besting a blizzard to which bugs pack the most protein to treating a burn with green beans-this is a must-have for anyone contemplating leaving civilization in the rearview mirror, whether it's for a day or for good."
A pretty good read, and interesting that this sort of preparedness-speak is becoming more mainstream by the month For me it's more of a hobby, but it's comforting to think that a hobby could really come in handy some day...
.Finally, really looking forward to the warmer weather and all that it brings...haste the day !! :)
