I just heard from Vic at Safecastle (one of our advertisers) that there has been a rush of large orders for Mountain House freeze dried foods because of Asian Avian Flu preparations. Order fulfillment timetables are now two months out, as many of the Mountain House foods are now out of stock. However, Vic can still take orders for SurvivalBlog readers at the deep discounts previously mentioned here, and he will still offer free shipping on any order booked before March 31. But be aware that delivery will now take a couple of months. Get your order in soon, to take advantage of the sale price and to get delivery before the backlog stretches out any farther!
