Interestingly, a few years back, after 9/11 tragedy...I decided to set up an evacuation/stay in place kit for my daughter and me, and also enough for 2 grands who live in Metro Denver. ( when shopping for items, I included a 6 pac of Spam), along with lots of other choices.

When I proudly displayed it for my family, all was approved, except for spam. They told me to throw that away. So, I decided to offer it up to our doggies....refused by them , as well.
I finally was able to pawn it off on some guys who were doing construction work at my home.

I will keep my ammo, (in ammo boxes), but, the spam is all yours! I had no idea there was such a "following for spam."..after all these years. My deceased brothers, Charles and Frank, would have been proud of all of you spam aficionados! LOL!

If I wanted to buy mystery meat in a can the Argentine or Brazilian "corned beef" would come in way ahead of Spam.

Hey! I LIKE that canned, corned beef in a can! (I've liked it ever since a CWA-Member's wife brought it out to our picket-line at the airline and fed it to us young, hungry commuter-pilots at the now-defunct RIO AIRWAYS! She was a LIFESAVER!)

Slice a red onion paper-thin, put a thick slice of canned corn beef on it, and stick it between two pieces of bread with mayo and horseradish-mustard... and YUM!

Now I gotta go DO IT! Mmmmmmm........

I completed packing all non perishables in "Goliath", my AI. (Not one can of spam or corn beef)! Pasta, Alfredo & marinara sauce, canned chicken breast, tuna, salmon, olives, mushrooms, chicken noodle soup, etc. 5Bean salad, beets, artichoke hearts, hearts of palm. Will supplement with cold foods (once fridge/freezer are cold)....romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, deli ham and chicken, jarlsberg, Swiss cheeses. Whole grain bread and crackers. Variety of fresh fruit and yogurt and granola. Fruit vitamin waters, protein drinks. Stir fry veggies,and shrimp. And wines, of course. I'm ready to camp!

If I have to dig into the bug out larder the thing I am worrying about is immediate health; not long term. If I survive, there is plenty of time to confess to my doctor.

Don, what is your health worry? I hope not serious. Are you taking a trip out west soon? Good luck.

Evelyn, No immediate health problems here. Just meant that getting into the bug out larder would probably mean imminent danger. We are not in the Rockies, but the Blue Ridge Mountains at our mountain cabin. With the "best well on the mountain" we can exist for months up here. It's our bug out place.

I'm sorry we are not going on the "Boon docking for green horns" trip, but hope to meet you in August 2017.

TN Traveler, look forward to meeting up some day. I'm a native Tennessean, as well.

I am fiendishly packing 1/2 the house in my Interstate, determined to be finished today, for trip in early A.M. So excited!

I'm not sure why there is such SPAM aversion. If you haven't tried fine culinary preparations like classic SPAM Musubi, zesty SPAM balaya, breakfast SPAM quesadillas, or Anthony Bourdain's recipe for SPAM budae jjigae you have truly missed the best of low quality foods.

Because when I was a kid, SPAM from the base commissary is what we ate when we couldn't afford anything better, which was all too often for a family of four on a tech sergeant's pay in the 60s. I have an equal aversion to bologna for the same reason.

There are currently 5 cans of SPAM in my trailer. Would never even consider traveling without it. Makes a great easy meal.

WINE & CHEESE.
A couple good sharp knives (to clean, on site, those fish you caught).
Greek yogurt and fruit for a fast and healthy breakfast. (DON't forget the coffee!)
And of course, Ray....WHATEVER YOUR WIFE WANTS!!!!
Since I travel solo....it's all about what I want! Heh-Heh-Heh! LOL!
Like the call out for wine! And i love me some fried spam!
