We are early in our search. But if we find more/ better gf alternatives, I’ll post them!
I found and ordered this option for my gluten-free wife:
120 Serving Gluten Free Entree Bucket – 27 lbs
Looks and feels good. Hope we never have to use it, but we are trained to be prepared.
Most people can refill the throw-away plastic gallon containers that we get in the grocery store with juice, milk, etc. Don’t throw them away – fill them with tap water so you always have a few weeks supply on hand. If you live in most USA city other than Flint Michigan, you’ve got some of the best water in the world coming out of your tap! If not, use a filter as Jon suggests.
We build & manage off-grid estates in Belize. For one of our watchmen, Fidel, I furnished an RAV system similar to the one you cover here. It worked well for a few years in a very tough high-heat, bright-sun, saltwater environment. The folding solar panel was rugged, but it took some explaining to get Fidel to follow the sun with it – thus achieving maximum charge. It powers the battery pack, which powers Fidel’s cellphone, low-voltage night light, radio, and Fenix UC35 rechargeable flashlight – (the absolute best which we furnish to all our security people). Be careful flying with the battery pack because it is lithium ion and many have almost the max amount (24,000mAh ??) of capacity legal as carry-on baggage. And FHA battery restrictions may have changed since then, so check with FHA before you buy, if your bugout location require a quick flight like ours does.
