3. Although this isn't a replacement for the coumadin,

remember that aspirin is a blood thinner. It is cheap and would be easy to have on hand. So just make sure you have that available if you ever would need to look at a time without your meds.

You are right that the foods you have available will keep you from starving, but would get old fast. I have always said that I can live a long time on food in my house, but I would not have the healthiest meals....although who cares as long as you are not starving.

You sound like you are in good shape if you need to be without utilities for a while. Not a bad way to go, but don't get loony like the survivalists who are excited about the a time when the world will go to hell in a handbasket.
