  1. Food and water
    Newbie's 3rd post here. What are the groups thoughts on the above subject. Personally, if there is a situation of water to be purified, MRE would be my choice. Only down side is they tend to "bind" you up if eaten daily. There has to be a happy medium, so what's the word. Thanks for the...

    Hi all, We've got emergency bags in our vehicles, but I'm concerned about the effects of the heat inside the car during summer effecting the "shelf life" of the food & water we have in the bags. During the summer months, it can get over 100 degrees F. We have 7 MREs (entrees, sides, &...

    Good Day, In case some people don't know or a reminder for people who have heard of the above, I noticed there pieces of wrapped food called emergency rations (EMR) and meals ready to eat (MRE). EMR's are thick squares of food that can be had for relatively inexpensive prices. Their shelf...
  4. Food and water
    For a few years now I've been worried about the decline of our country, and with recent events it looks like time is getting short. I've only been prepping for roughly a year now so I'm not even close to where I would like to be prep wise. With my budget and timeline I think we have, I'm...

    So, I ignore thread upon thread for YEARS here about MRE's. The Home Brew MREs here were GREAT! Really gave me some insight on what someone could put together. HOWEVER, there is just something different about a real MRE "meal". There is the complete package, including the spoon. The extras...

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Greetings, About 6-7 months ago i went on a web site selling a couple different brands of mres and they just introduced the competitor of mountain house. They also disclosed the dates of manufacture of the mre too on the site. They had good pricing but i cannot remeber that website. Anyone know...

    I thought you'd like to see what all can fit in a original Gunslinger. Basically a comfortable 3 to 5 day pack-- indefinite if you can trap/fish or hunt. You get the idea'er. I could squeeze my North Face 2 man 3 season tent in there-- but it adds 8 pounds. 2 weeks ago I walked up into the local...

    Ever break down an mre and keep the good stuff? What do you keep? What do you get rid of? (And I don't mean throw away)
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I put together a couple of MRE's one day when I was bored. They still need a bit of tweaking. But I was absolutely surprised (gob smacked) at how relatively healthy they were compared to what I was expecting. I was shooting for an MRE that was based on a 2000 calorie diet. The recommended daily...

    I want to carry 3-4 MRE's. How much does a single MRE weigh compared to just the entree? What exactly do they take out when you just buy the entree and what nutritional value/ nutrients am I loseing?

    I had two cases (24 meals total) delivered today from A-pack ready meals from Evansville, IN... Heaters included... These look like they should be good meals...
  12. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hi all this is my first thread. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to can their own food in pouches similar to what you see with tuna bags and MRE entries. This whole idea came about when I ran into this site. The official name for those bags are retort pouches. However, the cost of that...

    Thinking of picking up a couple of cases but there's so much BS out there regarding this I thought I better get "consensus" on a good source of fresh supplies. I'm going to do a search of course, but I thought I'd ask the ol' pro's here. Thanks.

    I have a chance to buy some MRE heater thingys, not the meal but just the heaters. is there a use for them to heat up regular food like say a can of ravioli? can you wrap it around a can to warm the can up?
  17. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    A couple of weeks ago, my buddy gave me an extra 8 1/2 cases of MREs ( Meals Ready to Eat). When the MREs were brought home, I did not have the extra room for them, but I'am not going to say no to free food stocks. My wife and I went to wal-mart, bought a plastic shelving system, cleaned out a...

    How do the MRE's stack up against Mainstay 3600? I like the main stay because its 3 days of food and is smaller than one meal of MRE's. How many days can you survive on Main Stay 3600's? Im 6'2 240 can I live on one bar for 3 days? What other options are there out there? Would it help to carry a...
