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