  • Easily 2 weeks, could probably stretch it to 4 without a problem, basic survival - probably 6 weeks.

  • In my pantry...months probably. We would be living off of beans, canned greenbeans,salsa, jam,tomatoes and pickles. We can every year so we have a lot of jars down there.

  • Usually we could survive for about two months.  Right now though we haven't stocked up again yet and we wait until my husband has a day off to do that, SO.......... probaly a few days tops.

  • 8-9 months but the last ones would be only eating meat. We have 400 lbs of beef right now.

  • about a week on dry/canned goods. We just don't have the money to stock pile food, we are lucky to have enough for food this week!!
