Most of the discussions and documents I've read on putting food by focus on proper storage conditions, putting by what you normally eat, rotating your stock, etc. This kind of information is vital for the home pantry. What about the kinds of foods that can withstand -- within reason -- less than optimal conditions such as an emergency stash stored in the trunk of a car. I'm trying to develop a list that would survive a 3-6 month stint in the trunk. Over this kind of time frame you could -- at least, where I live -- go from below freezing to broiling temps. Any suggestions as to the kinds of emergency foods that could withstand such variation while maintaining a reasonable nutritional value? I am not talking about a huge stash of food, but a few days worth of fairly ready to eat products that can withstand 3-6 months of "store it and forget it" over the course of which I'd, hopefully, rotate it out during camping trips. I've lined up the usual suspects (dehydrated soups/stews, nuts, dried fruit, powerbars, etc.) What I'm curious about is your experience with foods that can take abuse, esp. with environmental extremes and still remain edible. Any suggestions or thoughts? Thanks!
