Part of the CERT training was to have 72 hrs of supplies on hand. The trainers mentioned energy bars but the regular stuff sold at the markets had a 6 mo shelf life. I did a search and found these 5 yr shelf life bars, 400 calories, very low sodium. I ate one driving yesterday so didn't get a pic of the bar itself. Tasted good and did not make me thirsty which would be important. They are called Millennium bars, 12 for $18 Amazon and there are larger quantities. There were 2400 calorie bars and will try those later. 12 bars is 1600 calories per day for three days...

Any other recommendations?

The cherry one was pretty good. Sweet, not salty, ok consistency and moisture. Obviously I am wondering what they will taste like 4 yrs from now but the reviews were favorable.

Like a hockey puck, what do you think? If you need to eat it would it matter what it tastes like?

I'll have to try these, thanks Allen. I put a couple Mountain House Chicken Salad pouches in my CERT go bag. It tastes really good, better than it looks, and has lots of calories and protein for energy. Just add cold water, no need to heat.

I just finished outfitting my CERT go bag, including making a new compact trauma kit. As soon as I get a chance, I'll make a youtube video of the contents.

Not energy bars, but gluten free food with 25 yr shelf life. I haven't tried them so don't know how they taste.

When buying these sorts of products, ignore how many servings they claim and look at total calories. Under best of circumstances, you will probably need around 2000 cal per day. Double that if it's cold, or you are doing hard labor (digging out your house...)

Awesome stuff! I guess if we are at the point of using these that taste is probably a low priority and survival and calories are a high priority

I will have to pull out the list I obtained when I first loaded my CERT bag. We had a CERT bag filling party shortly after graduation. Got all kinds of stuff in there.

Winter can leave now... Lets try to get above 50 degrees???

I agree with Benny that the main point is that the area is posted closed and people are in violation, but I agree with Mountainarts observations and believe the Eagles are more adaptive than we think. I have been here since 1961 and am not concerned.

To BootsnBridles, I was only referencing what everybody who lives around Flathead Lake in Montana grows up knowing. Eagles basically are crows with fancy dress, Google all the videos of them mobbing townsfolk, or stealing groceries off people leaving the market.
Nothing negative, or positive that I am asserting, they are just what they are, no biggie.

I was only commenting on the eagles, and how they are scavenger birds, which mentally have no fear of human activity.

Snowplay folks, and trespassing I was not referencing. That is a whole huge probl3m up here, with trash, no respect and outright hostility to homeowners as they blqtantly trespass qnd trash your porperty, while they look at you telling them to move on.....

Yeah that's all fine and dandy, but closed means closed. It's not just the eagle habitat which is a no brainer, but it's everywhere. All coming up to play in the snow and park anywhere there's a half spot. I get it, but show a smidgeon of respect!

Mountainart, you may be right about the eagles, but that doesn't excuse to countless number of people that park where it's marked no parking and ignore the signs and cross the tape, trespassing where it's marked not to, just to play in stuff that you find in the freezer.

Once 1 or 2 park somewhere that is marked no parking (any where on the mountain), more will follow, clogging up the roadway; Then it takes an extra hour to go a mile or two near the drift park & above Snow Valley.

So, does that excuse their parking illegally or trespassing in marked areas? Leaving trash, etc, etc.

Yet, it's silly eco sensitism as the eagles literally don't care. Eagle nests outside a busy apartment and street next door to where used to live in Kalispell Mt. Eagles would play with local kids putting dead rats on string. The "Eagles might get nervous or stressed by seeing people" is pure sierra club false propoganda.

Definitely not enough. Can't believe those fools can's read the signs and think how bad it will be over the holidays. Luckily she isn't on the nest now.
