I saw the same add but questioned also the value of paying money for his information. I asked about it on backwoodshome.com and got this response.

This is his list of 37 items. Enjoy---------

Water, pasta, rice, Canned soups, meats, veggies, fruit.

Popcorn, salt, milk (condensed or powdered), cereal, beef jerky, grains.
Cooking oil, sports drinks, nuts, pickles, dried fruits, spices, honey, crackers.

Baking essentials, power bars, instant rice, coffee, alcohol.

Hard candies, dehydrated canned entrees, juice powders, protein drinks, peanut butter, Long lasting treats ( twinkies, etc.)

Salsa, Ramen noodles, fresh fruit, baby food and pet food
.

Glad I didn't fork over any cash for this. Anyone serious about prepping can come up with this list on their own.

Thanks everybody for the honest replies and excellent info!

I was hoping to find out that there's nothing new and earthshattering out there that somebody on THIS forum hasn't mentioned before. The guy uselling the most recent book (37 Things) is charging $49.99 and says he is reducing the price (from $79.99) because he just feels it is "right".............. Well, I know what's right and that doesn't sound like it hits the mark.

Once again my thanks and will be sharing with all later!

OdieB

I thought thats about what it was all gonna be about but it did open some discussion doors with the ole man. He then passed on to my younger brother and it did the same with him, so it was not a toatal loss.

my not-so-tongue-in-cheek ironic post was geared more towards many of the late-night infomercials that promise the moon and deliver bupkiss.

to you and yours if the book did some good

I am more than intrigued to know what these items are, but I don't have an extra $50 to buy the book.

Without infringing on sales potential from those selling their books, does ANYBODY know the top ten items that will disappear off the shelves first?

I have what I think are the basics, and of course water....... What is going to surprise me when SHTF and I don't have this on my shelves?

Uncle Joe... you forgot #101 - a warehouse (bugging in) or a few large trucks (bugging out) to hold it all!

Yeah. I have an F-700 box truck that couldn't hold half that stuff.

For long term prepping, don't forget to stock up on shoes/boots. I walk 3 miles a day and go through shoes every 3 months. In a full out SHTF, walking could be a major part of the day and shoes will wear out quick.

I keep a list like that one when I go to garage sales and second hand stores.
