Re: Thank You to all who served! And a Doodle for MRE INFO ADMINS :)

Wow! First outline sketch in Sharpie and then (colored pencil?) for final color. Truly impressive. I wish I could draw with even an ounce of that talent. Very well done indeed.

Re: FEMA food packs for recent hurricanes

Good point Kman. It's difficult to be prepared for a single disaster of that magnitude. Throw 3 or 4 back to back and things get really crazy, really fast.

FEMA food packs for recent hurricanes

Came across in my twitter feed a couple days ago, a stream about what FEMA has been dropping off as emergency food to those in need in the recent disasters from the last couple months.

Couple images I snagged from the stream.

Re: Any tips for Chicago.

I am going to US Navy Bootcamp over at the great lakes in 25 days. And my A-school is also at the great lakes. I am going to be in the Chicago area for 2 years. I am wondering of any tips of things to do and what not. The Navy Pier is really great so you'll have lots to do right there in the area a...

Re: New Items found in 2015 MRE's

Yup, I just opened the chicken chunks tonight for dinner from late 2015 and can confirm.

Heating up the chunks in water (no FRH) helps quite a bit in my opinion. Buffalo sauce isn't too bad especially if you like a vinegary hot sauce and add the jalapeno cheese and you got yourself a party.

Re: Things money can't buy

In my local stores I cannot find anything hardly anything mre related except occasionally some can openers and mess kits. The military surplus stores in the greater Milwaukee area have odd open hours too. The science and surplus store had some 2012 civilian mres a while back for $6 each. One sporti...

Re: Your Collection?

I have two collections. One is for eating / selling / trading, and the other is for collecting only. Here is the eating collection: It continues to grow, and negotiations are underway with the Mrs. to expand onto another shelf. :wink: I have to ask. Why the MRE tan bag dated 1996-1997 in the do-not...

Re: 1992 Chicken Stew, Compromised

That's actually pretty interesting to hear. If my knowledge of biology weren't lacking considerably I might have thought of the same thing. If I ever encounter another "vacuum sealed" MRE, I will make sure to stay away from it or leave it sealed. I got to critically analyzing my original ...

Re: MRE SLANDER!!!

Their first 5 years in the league they were fantastic for an expansion team... I haven't seen much playoff hockey in my lifetime though. True that. Very impressive for an expansion team to be immediately competitive starting from scratch. Is this what caught your eye and turned you into a fan? I ha...
