Sources of drought resistant open pollinated seed corn

I recently found a great site while surfing - www.seedweneed.com - Dave Christensen of Montana has set up this site to share his experience breeding a hardy drought resistant corn which he (apparently) named Painted Mountain. I've reviewed his page which lists commercial sources of this seed, (he does not sell it) and the best deal by far is Osborne Seed Co in the Pacific NW. I'm planning to order a few lbs of this to keep around as a reliable way to grow carbohydrates (as a backup to, or in addition to, potatoes).
