Re: What is your EDC?

Re: What is the story of your members name?

In the 1980'S I was a Motorcycle enthusiast. I went on group rides with mostly Harley riders. Some of the organizers were big on nicknames i.e. Dog, Moose, Catfish, Crazy Henry etc. As I did not ride a HD, rather a Norton I was given the 'not' very original nickname of
Mr Norton.

Re: What is the most 'useless' piece ration/MRE/camping equipment you own?

My wife bought me this set because she and my son thought it looked like a solid well made set. (Bless their hearts :D ) It is a well made set that nests very tight. But it is far to big for foot hikes or canoe trips as packing it in a ruck or W/P bag is a problem. I like using the Swedish Army clas...

Re: What is the most 'useless' piece ration/MRE/camping equipment you own?

Yowie Good subject I have a good example and will post photos tomorrow. For now I want to comment on your Stanley camping set. My friend bought that set to use on a Three day hike in mountains of West Virginia. I looked at it and thought man this is well made. I warned him it would be best to use th...

Re: My first two MREs - opinions

To my Italian friend. First I enjoyed your detailed review. Must agree, I wish they placed two pouches of crackers in the MRE. I also think the beef snack bar is very poor. But do not judge American Jerky type products from that. We make good Civilian bars :D I would think the U.S. could purchase hi...

Re: French emergency ration

Re: "Survival Russia" by Lars Grebnev

He has a fantastic camping saw!
The birch log shelter is outstanding and like the narration.

German Ready to eat shelf stable Bread

My friend and Moderator Housil was so kind as to send me a variety of made in Germany shelf stable. I enjoy camping, hiking and canoe trip so good bread is always welcome. First open the package and ate one section. This I found was quite delicious, the ground grain was clearly visible. The texture ...
