Making the Best of Basics

Making the Best of the Basics is a must have book. It is a great go by, for food storage. This high lite of the book is from Walton Feed http://www.waltonfeed.com You can purchase the book from Walton, plus Walton sells storage food, and many other useful items. I understand though, that there is a back log in filing food orders throughout the smalll long term food storage/preparedness business community.
