Re: 15% Off ANY Meal Kit Supply MREs

This wasn't thread crapping. It's an opinion. I understand now that MKS is a site partner. So if you do not agree with my opinion and you need to protect the site partnership simply delete my post. No issue with that. For the record, this isn't about vendor vs. vendor...I purchase MKS and people li...

Re: 15% Off ANY Meal Kit Supply MREs

I have some MKS sitting here because I finally had to see for myself. Very disappointed.

Re: What is the proper temperature too store rations?

I think 60-65F is a great temperature at which to store them - they should last for many years that way. However, if you want them to last as long as possible, get them as cold as possible.

Re: FEMA food packs for recent hurricanes

I think one of the problems that happened this year was that most of the decent MRE-type meals were bought up by suppliers trying to get food to the Houston area for the first hurricane. So by the time Florida and then Puerto Rico were hit, those supplies had dried up and they were grabbing whatever...

Re: IRMA hurricane threat - anybody affected?

DirtyDave is down in your area, too, Steve. He says he's hiding under his bed with a .45 waiting for Irma. :-) Good luck...we'll be watching.
