Re: Any suggestions on a 3 day patrol/assault pack?

I used on that trip a Jansport three day climbing pack and packed the minimal amount of clothing and gear but the shoulder straps were too thin and rubbed into my skin and the kidney belt buckle kept popping open at weird times. So this week I'm getting rid of it: hence why I'm posting this questio...

reviews: world tour sampler from NNF!

A few months ago Name_not_found approached me about a trade. Since Adrian had already started me down the path to the Dark Side of MRE fandom, and I've always enjoyed NNF's reviews, Resistance was Futile. ;) Name_not_found sent me his swap package a few weeks ago, and has been very patiently waiting...

Re: 2012 HDR review

Rocking good first post, rock! :) Does your case contain all the same or different menus ? I'm guessing yours is a " 4 " (can someone confirm that?). Please take a quick inventory of the rest - thanks! :) That's the big question that's been keeping me from ordering these! (That and I'm in the midst...

Re: please share DEALS on shelf stable food

Great review, Dave! Thanks! :) Tree, the REI sale also includes Clif's protein bytes, which sound similar to something you reviewed one year ago ("PowerBar Protein Plus Bites").

Re: please share DEALS on shelf stable food

Costco is selling cases of freeze dried fruit pouches, 18 ct for $15.50. These contain Apples, Apples with cinnamon, and Strawberrys with Bannanas. These were packaged by Oregon Freeze Dry, better known as Mountain House. http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?prodid=11748679&whse=BD_569&topnav=...

Re: review: AlpineAire Foods "14-Day Portable Food Pantry"

Tried last night the Mountain Chilli. Despite trying to improve with some sausage pieces, grated cheese and some ketchup, I was unable to eat. Taste was very, very bland, consistency like come dehydrated rubber, so I've ditched to my chickens. They were very enthusiastic in eating it. :| Sorry, but...

Re: review: Official Astronaut Beef Stew

Over the course of our first few PMs, I kept badgering poor Adrian about what exactly he wanted, and after much patience on Adrian's part, he finally got thru to me that he wanted to be "surprised" (other than the core stuff that had started our discussions). See, I'm a software engineer, and regula...
