On an interesting sidenote, all of the standard issue Girl Scout SMUs are actually made in 2 different factories. The factories offer mostly the same SMUs by name, but the recipes of some of the SMUs differ. The aforementioned Smore variety from the one factory is a chocolate covered affair while the one from the factory the girls around here use only has the chocolate on the inside.

(My Cub Scout Committee Chair also has a daughter in the Girl Scouts and was telling us about it the one night at a meeting. IIRC, each council can choose which factory they use for all their troops, so in some areas, you can walk past 2 different troops at the local mall selling SMUs of different variety. Around here, everyone uses the same factory and I'm not ordering an entire case online just to try them...)

If and when it happens I want to be at ground zero.
I'm confident the rest of you will envy me later.

By about day 7 of eating freeze dried meals I'd guess..... unless one has a largish wine cellar.... then I get through a bit longer.

I would do the same, but we are insulin dependent diabetics and how does one stockpile insulin? Insurance won’t let you get ahead and at $290 a vial or $330 for a box of pens. Yikes.

This was actually my older brother’s concern with Brexit and potential reductions in supply of insulin.
Then again, we’re all spoiled with free drugs here.

I picked up some film bodies over the last week .. two pz1p, a pz20, and a super program. I actually started out with the intent to pick up a MZ-S but I got gun shy and came across the others when GBA kicked even though I already own several copies. No regrets, its getting harder to find good condition Pz1ps at a decent price.
