    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...

    Question: If an inspection date is says November, 2011, does this mean the shelf life starts from this date? thanks in advance.

    Hey Gents, wanted to get some opinions on Wise Foods' Grab and Go bucket. http://www.campingsurvival.com/wifo60seenon.html 25 year shelf life, affordable but needs water to reconstitute. Opinions? Would MRE's or just canned food be better? Thanks

    My wife and I decided to have some Mountain House Jamaican Chicken with Rice for dinner this evening. A two person mylar packet. She made a cup of rice to go with it at my request, I wanted a 1200 calorie meal in total, the Mt. House was 600, the cup of rice a second 600. So we each got 600...

    Hi I'm new, just looking for the best place to buy MREs. Thanks

    Ok guys, i'm new to this and have been doing some reading and searching archives. Can you vacuum seal mylar bags and put an absorber in them? Or are mylar bags with an absorber good enough? And also, how do you seal the mylar bags? Never used them obviously but my wife and I are just...

    Just wanted to gain some insight as to what you all think the best long-term food storage brand is. I listed a few of the main companies that I've heard of but it would be great to learn of a few more as well.

    My wife and I have been scouring the aisles of the local groceries for ideas on increasing the food stores. We take cost, preparation, and storage into consideration. We have found lentils in a one pound bag for$1.19. Says it is 14 servings so this is a great bargain. We cooked some up and tried...

    I was looking at some of the preps we have put away along with some recent experiments of items and have came to an interesting conclusion. While some items in #10 cans are great (Wheat)... others are less then wonderful. Powdered eggs - there are about 94 "egg servings" in a #10 can.. and...

    I noticed at my local Walmart that the Augaston Farms #10 cans have been moved to the camping section. It doesn't look like they are ordering more and the shelves are less than half of what they were a month ago. They have not marked them down though. Just wondering if anyone has noticed the...

    Does anyone have a recipe for a bar comparable to a lifeboat ration bar? I would like something I can make at home with 2400-3600 cal. per bar. I have done a search on the board and on Google, can't find any. Thanks.

    I just saw a post here about storing Cornbread mix in boxes, and it reminded me of something that happened with my #10 cans of Cornbread mix... I love cornbread, being from up north, we aren't too familiar with it, but ever since having it in the Navy, I just love the stuff! So, in my preps...

    I ordered, and after a considerable delay, have received a Wise Freeze Dried Meat Bucket. As advertised, it stated that it contained 60 servings...and it does sort of. In the bucket there are 15 pouches of freeze dried "meats" and two 1 pound bags of pre-cooked rice. According to the Nutrition...

    Hi all! I'm definitely buying some Mountain House food to add to my prep. My concern is the serving sizes. I see, for example, their beef stew will serve 'about 10'. We are a family of 5, so, can I use half the can, and then save the other half for later? I dont want to make the whole thing...

    As 2012 approaches, some of us might be thinking about news years resolutions. Along with the typical lose weight and stop smoking resolutions, I would like everyone to post suggestions related to how prepared you and your family are. Where do you need to make improvements. On top of your own...

    Peanut butte. The large 40 oz. Containers of peanut butter pack a total of around 6600 calories and 240 grams of protein. That gives you 2200 calories and 80 grams of protein daily for 3 days. I think this is the ultimate bob food easy to throw a jar in ur pack doesn't take up much room has a...
