    I have some Mil Spec desiccant bags that I'm wondering if they would be a good bartering item or would I be better off in selling most of it except for say 10% for possible future use? It is NOT food grade, but can be reactivated by heating in an oven at 245 - 260 degrees for 16 hours. Suggestions welcome.

    I'd sell most of it. I'd keep only what I need. I think candy bars or canned food would be better bartering items. I think a one pound canned ham would be quite valuable during a SHTF event.
