First freeze-dried meal on my butane stove

Nothing fancy, but since I've been in the prepper movement for a while, I thought it best to try out my new camp stove and mess kit. Using my aluminum BOB mess kit, the water boiled in about 90 seconds and I had reconstituted chili 10 minutes later.

I need to make it a point to test and push my prep limitations more often.

I agree ... practice makes us better (nothing makes us perfect). The word "chili" made me hungry. :D:

I haven`t broke into my freezed dried can but I bought some mountain house freeze dried to try out and it was fantastic. Cooked up nice on my little camp stove. Now I take one with me everytime I go offroading for lunch.

I am glad you are trying out your gear. It is critical to being able to function in an emergency. I often encounter scenarios where I need another item or need to make a modification in order to get a piece of gear to perform in the manner that I want. Had I not put my gear through the paces, I would never know that until it was too late to make amends.

I am often amused by people who have survival gear sitting in boxes in the closet. They don't have a clue of how to use them effectively, whether all the components are in the boxes, or even if they will do what is intended.

You're doing the wise thing.
