Actually deliverers three pallets over the weekend. Daryl from storage wars bought one as well.

Delivered two this morning. The upcoming food shortage being all over the news has sparked a ton of sales..

I hope it never comes to that to be clear.. but for a thousand bucks to not have to worry about it? I think that’s a lot of peoples mindsets..

For me I am planning on using these for offroad and simple shit like that where convenience works.. anyone wants to try them Jist give me a call and meet me at my shop I have several cases open.

Talk to @Ace in the Hole seems like he is always going back and forth.

As of the first of June, Cave Creek will be "home" so my trips to TX will likely become far less frequent and by air. I wound up actually doing a large pod vs driving the truck and trailer out this week to clear out the rest of my house there, as the costs were almost the same and its a time saver for me. I'm more than willing to get a pallet to PHX for someone though going forward. I'll be at the lake most weekends this summer.

@traquer Tom aka @DILLIGAF is heading to texas this weekend... IDK if he has the room but I can put you in touch with him if needed. IDK if he is still under the banhammer, or not.

Baller :) My kid loves that park, but holly F the summer rates are crazy. We used to do a September trip after summer rates went away. Last time, they built a giant slip-n-slid into the bay from the parking lot.

You should go grab some 5 gallon buckets from lowes with lids and pack some smaller multi day stuff. (2 weeks per bucket or something)

Might get some more business as it isn’t a gigantic buy in or storage issue.

The way to buy buckets is from the doughnut shop. They get all their fillings in 4 gallon food grade buckets. Out here you can get a bucket with lid for $2 each.

My wife and I went over to Dave's shop and tried the MRE's. They tasted great. We bought the pallet seen above. Yes it takes some space but I feel the food shortages are coming. Be prepared. $1,000 to guarantee that many meals works for me. Thanks Dave.

Being you are in Utah, I’m surprised you haven’t stocked up on food yet.. lol. If you tell your neighbors you can get survival food for a 1.70 a meal I would sell out in a week. Mormons are required to keep a certain amount of food on hand.

My Dad has split up pallets in his AC garage in Havasu. He’s been selling them by the case locally. Give him a call anytime if you want to run over and grab some. He’s on the North Side of town. That goes for anyone! Give him a call.

I'll offer up free storage at my cold/chill facility in Downtown LA for you Dave for up to a year, 36-38 degrees F. You can reach out to me for info if you need the assistance.

I’m still trying to figure out why anyone would want to store these in a bucket?

A case is a nice flat box that is easily stackable in closets etc?

I talked to Rob, if you guys want to do that he can either meet you at his house, or down at the shop to do cases. I don't have time to do it, because I got a ton of balls in the air right now... but if I'm at the shop already I can sell them like that.

I've met more shitty fucked up Mormons than I have good ones....They don't all fit the stereotype, I wish they did.

I think Rob delivered 8-10 pallets when I was gone last week.

He went to Phoenix this morning early to pick up 8 more to make mixed pallets.

Thank you Dave and Rob
Rob delivered my pallet to Corona yesterday saved me a lot of driving only had to drive from Escondido.
Rob brought a loaded trailer from Havasu I think he brought 6 pallets total to the area, from the other thread I guess he has hauled some of his own items back to Havasu.

Yes sir he brought six for another guy..

I think 14 total went out last week. This food shortage thing has a lot of people getting prepared. We sent a couple to Texas as well.

I think with all the news with current and potential shortages soon to be here you would be sold out by now. Hows your stock?

Well ya gotta bare in mine I bought five semi loads of them so we have quite a bit. We have plenty of stock.. but sales are happening at a much faster rate than I anticipated.

We had one member buy a pallet and donate it to his church. It went over very well and he has already come back for a second pallet.

I think some people think these are like some kinda shitty tasting military food. It isn’t.. I was hungry the other day and cracked open a spaghetti and meatballs.. pretty good!

I’m gonna take them when we go off-roading etc..

That's a lot of stock, glad you are selling faster than anticipated. I heard they are much better than expected.

I might actually have a couple pallets heading up that way. When they are done with the wildland fires they might carry a few extras up there with them.
I'm in Central Oregon and am interested in a half pallet, or possibly a pallet, depending on shipping.

From the pictures I counted 6 different types of meals, so is there 8 cases of each type on a pallet?

is that E4L Rob T?
I don’t really have room for a pallet but could probably do 5-6 cases.
