    Was in Office Depot (Tigard at 10520 S.W. CASCADE BLVD -- across 217 from WaSq) on an errand, happened down the 'office break room' aisle and spotted a palette of:

    Arrowhead water
    cases of 20 x 1/2 liter bottles
    2 cases for $5. Limit of 4 cases

    Maybe not worth a special trip, but if you need a stapler anyway, I think that's a pretty good price... offer good through 13 march.

    Hey, you're just flickin' me gubblebum, right?

    I mean, that guy that got stuck in the snow in the coast range, what, five years ago took six months to starve to death, but you can die of thirst in a couple days, no? First item to stockpile vs. water main breaks is bottled water, and this looked like a decent price. But make like a doctor (and suture self.)

    And while I was there, I bought bulk reloads for my Swingline w/ hi-cap clips. 5000 rounds of 9/16" baby!

    (And BTW, tomorrow evening, Wednesday, at the Tigard Library, there's a demo on 'Tigard Maps', whatever that means. I figured to attend and see if they have anything on westside seismology. Will report back if there's anything useful. http://www.tigard-or.gov/library/default.asp)

    Yeah. That was all tongue-in-cheek. It was just a funny thought to think of Office Depot and Survival as somehow coinciding. I'm not knocking stockpiling water. Although someday the PC crowd is going to tell us we need to stop proliferating bottled water along with the nukes:D

    Crap, stupid memory -- it was 16 years ago, and he took nine weeks to starve. Still point is you need water a lot sooner than you need food.

    You could see if they have food staples while you are at the depot
