Ty! I make a fresh batch once a week. I’ve been doing it for 8 years now. It’s more expensive than cheap kibble, but much much cheaper than any high quality food.

Here’s my recipe (vet approved)

1/3 by volume cooked protein (salmon, ground beef, beef stew meat, chicken thighs, pork loin, almost anything)

1/3 cooked quinoa (if cooking the meat makes broth, use it to cook the quinoa)

1/3 cooked ground vegetables (green beans, broccoli, zucchini, cauliflower, greens, any healthy nonstarchy veggie)

Low phosphorus calcium. I use this.

Here’s my weekly:
6 lbs meat
4 1/2 lbs veggies (usually frozen)
3 cups quinoa cooked using 6 cups water
1 tsp of the calcium per lb of food.

I also give them a doggie vitamin, a squirt of fish oil (I use this.

I split it into thirds and freeze 2/3, just to keep it fresher.

The dogs love it, and their coats glow. They get scrambled eggs twice a week for breakfast instead. Vet says to keep doing whatever I’m doing.

I have four pet ferrets. Here is a photo of one of them with my son not long after he was born.

Prepping for ferrets is not anything too much different than for animals. They require food, water, and shelter. I'm not going to take a picture of the supplies because that requires a lot more effort than I am willing to put out right now.

For food, we have sacks of high protein cat kibble which fits their dietary needs. At least two bags of it are easily accessible and can be thrown in the car if necessary. This would easily last them a month and a half.

For water, the Sawyer mini is sufficient for both humans and animals for purification, and we have a 55 gallon water drum to catch it if necessary. I live in a rather wet area with lots of streams, so availability of water is not a high concern.

For shelter, we have 2 cat carriers for immediate shelter, and then a portable playpen for long-term if necessary.

Some miscellaneous stuff we have for them are nail clippers, some cat toys, a bit of dryer vent tubing, and a toothbrush.

Here is where things get interesting. Ferrets are domestic, but they still have a high prey drive. Unlike dogs, they don't eat a ton of food each day. Ferreting, or hunting rabbits with ferrets, is something that many hunters still do. All that is needed are nets, and then you have a renewable source of food with the help of your little buddies who flush out the game.

> Are potatoes and peas a best bet?

Yes, and they complement each other really well as companions in the same bed/pot. Add some squash and corn in the mix, then you'll really be cooking with fire. The best way to optimize peas and squash is to grow them on a nylon trellis. You'll get stupid amounts of squash.

If calories is your primary goal, think about livestock. You can easily do rabbits, chickens, ducks, geese, and pigeons locally with little effort. If you have space, think about pigs and goats or lamb.

The other option is processing and preserving your food. A handful of tomatoes is going to have a low caloric output, but if you grow 125 pounds of tomatoes and reduce that to 12 pounds of tomato sauce or 6 pounds of tomato paste, those are very calorie dense. Same with squash: cook it to break down the fibers, slow heat to boil off the water, then add some curry powder and spices - you've got calorie dense pumpkin curry to throw in the freezer.

My base kit is the Adventure Medical Kits Adventure First Aid 2.0 First Aid Kit. To that I add an extra large ace bandage, a hemostatic agent such as Celox/Quikclot, steri strips, and then a few extra medications such as anti-diarrheal that aren't included in the kit. Here is an excellent First Aid Kit article that I always refer people too.

Something to consider with a PVC shower, is supplementing your heat. Best way I've found to do so is to use a heating element like this one and couple it with a temp controller. This runs off 12v DC so you'd have to take into account electrical capacity, but I figure I could run that while on the move so the vehicle alternator takes the load, or from an onsite generator if you're in a fixed location.

Disclaimer: I have not run this yet, I'm still in the planning phases of a PVC shower. This was found through research.

Mine is similar, except I think I have their Mountain series Weekender kit. And I added an Israeli Bandage to mine, hopefully I never have reason to use it.

Here's one kit that is mostly complete that I built for my GF for Christmas. This is more of a "get home kit" since she works on the other side of the river, and post-CSZ the majority of bridges will be down.

A couple tips with this list:

  • You don't need the expensive batteries I included, you can use less expensive ones.

  • 2x of the 4oz fuel cans and the burner will fit inside the Stanley Camp Kit once you dispose of those worthless cups.

  • This kit doesn't include shelter.

  • If you're thinking about this as a "get home kit", be sure to include good shoes.

    You can jam it all into the shoulder bag with the food going into the dump pouch. All of this stays in the back of her car.
