I can't find where Larry Burkett says 6 months...greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
On the "y2k and Jack Van Impe" thread, someone stated that Larry was advising 6 months food and water. I went to his web-site, and the last thing I found was a "few weeks" preparation. My father respects his opinion, so I wanted to be able to show him that quote. Thanks!

Madeline, it wasn't me who posted that, but Larry Burkett DID talk about preparing on the 700 Club special on "Y2K and the Church." I taped the program and just went back to listen to it again. He said get hard copies of all records, have a MINIMUM of 60 gallons of water, a month's worth of food, and a month's worth of cash on hand. He also said they are sending out a weekly fax on Y2K, so maybe you can get that for your dad? If he said to prepare for 6 months anywhere else, I didn't see it.

It doesn't matter whether Larry said a couple of weeks or a couple of months........once you get him started, just have him keep on adding to to stockpile.
The hardest part is starting, since it's an admission that our life may change. Once he's over that, getting him to ratchet his preparation level up a bit won't be hard.
Hang in there.

Thanks for the responses. My father IS preparing for 3 months, even though Larry said 1 or 2. I was just curious if Larry had "upped" his recommendation. If someone who was even more conservative than my dad was getting more concerned, well then..you know what I mean. By the way, it is amazing how resistant to common sense someone can be. We have more than 3 months food, but he(my dad) is resistant to taking up more room for water drums. Hello!?! What good will more food than water do? I'm not too worried though; he has come far fast, and I know he just needs a little more pushing to come a little farther. That is why I was wondering about Larrry. Thanks!

Larry has a syndicated radio show broadcast here in Cleveburgh on 103.3 WCRF. My wife heard his take the last week or so, in which he recommended 6 months of food bassed on the fact that the peoplke he listens to are expecting disruptions in the 3-6 month range. He also recommends 3 months worth of money but has recommended this for a VERY long time.
