    I'm a new member and wish all of you well! I've been preparing and staying vigilant just about my whole life! After a large earthquake in 1973 I found myself thinking about survival in many conditions. Food and food preparation (to name just one) was found to be a challenge and as a kid I...
  2. Food and water
    Just curious to know if anyone has ever made their own MRE's....just the entre' not the entire meal with all the extras. I was thinking that you could make something on the order of Beaf stew or similar and pour it into a small....say 5x8" mylar bag,squeeze out as much as as possible,then seal it.

    I put together a couple of MRE's one day when I was bored. They still need a bit of tweaking.

  7. Urban Survival
    I also posted this in the farming & food section, but I thought this would also be a good place to put this- since I think this forum gets more traffic. My first batch was used up during Ike- (and I squandered a fair number for lunches beforehand), but now that I have a cellphone with a...

    Hey folks! I wanted to provide you with some of my findings on the homemade MREs that I experimented with over the weekend during a militia training session. My "MRE" was based on the YouTube video by a fellow Ohioan, JNasty4. Of course, most of the credit goes to our friend Josiah for his...
