Request: Anyone verified Koskinen's "2 week stock" advice? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Hi, sorry, I can't find Billy Boy's article in the archives. He posted last week saying that he'd heard Koskinen recommend 2 weeks of food and water in a radio interview. Heck of a jump from a 3-4 day storm. Did anyone manage to verify this?

Here is a thread that mentions this, but it is, third-hand:


I tried to get confirmation on this in an earlier thread as well.
Here's the only thing I've seen that comes close to an answer in print:

Oh? 2 weeks of preps is the MINIMUM you should have for a 3 day storm. This is not a change of stance at all. Aout 1 in 10 people that survive a 3 day storm will be out of SOMETHING for 2 weeks. (ok. a gross oversimplification.)

See thread "Did anyone else hear Kosky this morning?" posted by Billy- Boy originally the morning of 11-26, under government category.
