    Since I started camping again, it pretty much got me to start preparing as well at home. That being said, I was wondering what's your take on freeze dried foods or MREs? Are they any good? I recently came across this site where they are giving away $250 worth of freeze dried food. I'm thinking...

    Hello, First post, but a long-time reader of the forums. I received my Starter Kit from the LDS Online Store yesterday. One of the cans was severely dented and two had minor dents.
