Re: Witchita KS ?? Knoxville TN????

On the East coast, we run as far north as Pennsylvania. Typically in late summer. Mid west, we go to Michigan and Minnesota. Northwest we go to Missoula Montana and Boise Idaho. But this fall, I promised the wife we would go up the eastern seaboard to Boston, then up to Maine. Let me know when you ...

Re: MRE 17 - Pork Sausage Patty, Maple Flavored - 2013 DOP

This one is also amazingly good if you have a left over hashbrowns side. They do a great job of soaking up the delicious sauce. They're even better if you want to take the time to try to give them a little frying/crust in some oil. And I'll certainly +1 the tossing the muffin-top in the FRH... Like ...

Re: FRH tweek to insure full activation

My "Hot-Pouch" is Reflectix [or a windshield sun protector] in a leftover USPS priority mail Tyvek envelope, both cut down to size for a pair of the MRE retorts. It has a fold-over flap top that tucks into a duct tape band around the middle... works a charm, and only a few grams. It slides...

Re: Wanted: 7 1/2" Silco mess spoon

R-Yak--- BINGO ! That's the toy! Matches the fork I got from Steve.
I had one for years, [ever since Scouting days] but now that I've got the fork, I cain't find the bloody spoon.
Big enough for some serious entrenching mouthfuls [before the chow goes cold...]

PX MREs

I have a chance to go to an Army base PX in a couple weeks, and I was wondering what peoples experience about finding MREs in stock there might be?
I wouldn't mind the opportunity got a couple of please more recent rations. Almost everything I've got is at least six years old, if not 10.

Re: MENU 1 Chili with Beans (2014)

I know that RockyRaab and I are already pretty well known as the "hotheads" on here [at least as far as hot sauces go...], and I am always surprised when I hear people say that they don't like hot/spicy foods. I know the DOD tones things down as far as the actual meal paks go, but I have t...

Re: FRH tweek to insure full activation

I've got only a couple of full/sealed '06 meals left. One of them is the #18 Roast Beef with the caramel-apple Ranger bar... I DO believe that it and I may take the hike up to the ledges over the pond with my day hammock one nice day soon and try this trick out. I've got a stack of older FRH that I ...
