Re: MRE Heaven

I went to the Commissary today and checked prices. Full MREs are $9.81 each and $117.72 per case. TOTMs were $4.75 each and $57/case.

Re: FRH: To Salt or Not To Salt: That is the question.

In my demonstration, I was using food items generously donated to me that day, and I didn't want to be greedy. On my own, I usually do heat two items with the FRH sandwiched between. The purpose of the demonstration was how to best use an FRH, and I hope that came across. (Even after the cleanup and...

Re: MRE Comparisons

Yes, I pre-emptively add a bit of pre-mixed salt brine to the water every time I use an FRH. It can't hurt, it very often helps, and if the FRH is so degraded that even added salt won't help, you'll know it within seconds. As you may have noticed in the lecture, I use an old Visine bottle, which is ...
