In the middle of Chicago. :D
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... ok.
Is that where the franconsteins stash is?
===========

@PamsPride... Quite seriously, though... I've still got stuff from Y2K that I'm eating - haven't died yet (knock knockin on bloated cans, instead of wood). :rolleyes:

I just bought 25 cases of canned chicken (6 BIG cans /case) for $2.50/can... one can is enough to feed 6 people with some rice and chicken bullion to season it... tried my own recipe, tastes good and a tummy filler! Carbs and protein for hard work on the 'stead...

Most people buy what they most like to eat, not what's good to store and nourish WTSHTF... most of that "like to eat" stuff don't hold well for the long term. My bunker is full of nitrogen-packed grains and legumes in 55 gal lid-locked drums. It will hold for 20-30 years.

We used to do this with 5 gal buckets too... I discovered some "lost" buckets 2 years ago, one with 22 year old pinto beans, and one with 27 year old wheat... the pintos made excellent chili, and the wheat still made good bread!

Hey! Gimme a break! Maybe I was a vulture in my previous life.:D
Hehehe... Buzzard? -you can have them bloated cans, then!

Thank God there haven't been very many, but the second one shows up or ANYTHING is suspect, it goes right in the trash where no human or animal can be harmed...

Playing with botulism is like russian roullete!

Cold War cache found in New York

Survival blankets and crackers dating back five decades to the Cold War have been found in a long-forgotten storage room under New York's Brooklyn Bridge.
Officials believe the stash, discovered during a structural inspection, may be one of many created in the US in the 1950s amid fears of a nuclear war. The provisions include 350,000 "Civil Defense All Purpose Survival Crackers", medical kits and now-empty water drums.

"This is modern American history," said city transport official Iris Weinshall.
"People were worried, they thought we were going to go to nuclear war."

'Rare find'

Concealed in the depths of the bridge's Manhattan side, the sealed tins of crackers are dated 1962 - when the Cuban missile crisis brought the world to the brink of nuclear conflict.

the amazing thing is that the inspectors are telling the people that they haven't been inspecting all parts of the bridge in over 50 yrs
