Is this in order of disappearance?Duct tape is #53? That is the first thing I would stock up on if I knew I was in it for the long haul... The other thing I would want is a salt barrel. Then again canned food came in at #60. We actually have a decent supply of most of the things on that list. Although we do need more jars, my wife planted ten tomatoes plants this year and intends to do a lot of canning. She also wants gutters, rain barrels, and a solar oven.

You'll be limited to the stretch of river between whatever docks you end up between, unless you risk the zombies to run the locks, assuming you can power them.

Canned tomatoes? How long do you think canned tomatoes will sustain you? Vegetables are horrible for sustenance. They provide micro, but not macro-nutrients.

They taste good, no doubt, but if you are trying for efficiency, your time is much better spent preserving and storing the two macronutrients that can sustain your metabolism and fuel activity: carbs and fat.
