    So I am going to spend the coming weekend doing the ole' DIY MREs with my vacuum sealer. While looking online to see if there were any new ideas of what to pop in caloric-wise...I came across someone that made some and then taped "emergency water packets" onto the outside...and I assume just...

    Salutations. I would like to know where I can find cheap MREs online. Where could I find them in bulk and cheap, what SHOULD the price be for them, and when should they expire?

    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...

    I posted earlier that I had a little extra funds and was curious about MRE purchases. Well, I pulled the trigger... er... I guess I clicked the mouse button... several times! Went to ______________________________________________ The items you ordered are shown below...

    I think it was about 2 years ago I made a post on home built rations being cheaper than what you buy online. Of course if you have a plastic or better yet, a mylar sealer this is better than what I use, which is a heavy duty freezer bag with the air sucked out and sealed with duct tape. It holds...

    Hi all. Please forgive me if this question is either stupid or a repeat of one that has been asked many times before. I'm late to the game and just getting started learning in the preparedness arena. Would it make sense to store MRE pouches in sealed mylar bags with O2 absorbers like you...

    The Defense Logistics agency has new information on the shelf life of MREs. It is quite a bit shorter than the old one. Here is a link to an article on it. Sorry I put this up a second time because of a misspelling in the title and I thought this information...

    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 was looking at different emergency foods and found these WISE rations, seems like a good deal any opinions? Also anyone know of a good place to purchase MREs?
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've been to several websites selling long term food storage items such as MREs, 5 gal buckets of grain, and #10 cans of dehydrated foods. The sites that I go to are all sold out and on back order. What are some of your favorite places to buy food for long term storage? Should I buy the mylar...

    Well it is less than a month until School's out for summer!:D::cool: During this summer, I plan to start backpacking:thumb:. The first time I go out, will be in a very local state park(only 15 minutes away from my house). One thing I currently notice is that I am lacking food:upsidedown:. A...

    I'm curious what everyone thinks of my logic here. Maybe I'm missing something. I've started researching various long term food storage options. I've looked at efoodsdirect, Mountain House, SuperPails, and MREs. My first assumption and basis for comparison is that I'm going to need 2,000...

    I was really suprised at how much mre's have improved since I was last in the military. US Military MRE menus have changed greatly over the past 18 years. Since MRE XIII (1993 Date-of-Pack), 70 new items have been approved as MRE improvements. Fourteen of the least acceptable items were...

    Greetings! I am looking for a source of real MRE's that are still consumable and in good condition. I have found a lot of them that are out of date or have been ill handled but am not having a lot of luck finding good ones. Anyone know where I can go to get them?
  16. Food and water
    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 camera- I thought to put it to use showing how I make my own MREs. I studied the nutritional information given with regular MREs, which I attempted to...

    Ok, I know somewhere there is a thread about this but cannot find it. Is there any where in the UK other than the MOD that has mre's that are available to Joe Public?:confused::confused::confused:
