Re: Hooah Bars

I've seen some new bars at http://www.beprepared.com (emergency essentials), but dont know if they are the same thing like the Hooah Bar? They are called New Millennium Food Bars, last up to 5 years and 400 calories of energy for about $ 1.10 each. Mainstay bars dont taste too bad - kinda like a sho...

Re: CIGS: Long term storage

MCI era, thanks for the info. I guess that to keep cigarettes in a long term storage would take some work and expense to hold them. Next time I go to the cigar shop, I will ask them about this topic. Right now I have to worry of the summer around the corner. How to keep all these MRE's at least 70° ...

Re: 2012 End Times Prophecy

Interesting topic. I hear lots of things from people everywhere around me. I mostly hear that some Aliens are coming to take all our resources and move on. I cant say that couldnt happen, but I have to stop and think that this would be the end for us eventually and on the other hand if these Aliens ...

Re: CIGS: Long term storage

thanks for the info. I was also thinking of a using a vacuum bag. We have a handi-vac made by Reynolds Co. They are plastic bags with a seal and a port to suck out the air. They used to be 10 bucks, now about 3.50 at Wal-mart and the bags are right next to the unit where all foil and bags are sold. ...

CIGS: Long term storage

Anyone know how to maybe preserve CIG PACKS over a long time? I know from time to time in Texas the state sales tax stamp changes color to keep track of rotation of fresh packS from old. Most of the time the previous color indicates stale cigs or VERY old cigs. I have heard that people put them in t...

Re: but OLD FRH 1St. Generation FRH

thanks for the info, found and read the first OLD FRH post, what I have been doing to use these OLD FRH's up is putting the meal inside a gallon size zip-lock bag wrapping it and then stuffing that into the FRH, that way its not as messy when I pull that out. For now I'm not in a situation where wat...

a-pack Salt Water package - leaking

Just went into the apack 2006 case today. Noticed the Chicken w/ Black Beans & Rice 6200 date inside package all wet . So I pulled it out and opened it. At first I thought the main entry was leaking since the cardboard box had darker colored spots on it and signs of it being wet. After removing all ...

Re: Mountain House Noodles and Chicken Review

Hello, I noticed that both theepicenter and beprepared sites have the #10 cans on sale. They are pretty much the same price and if you go to the Mountain House site they are higher buying direct. I was thinking of just having a can for - JUST BECAUSE! What I did want to ask is how did you open the c...

MICROWAVE OVEN AND MRE

I tried to microwave a MRE today. It didnt seem to heat up. It never even puffed up in which I was expecting when it heated up and was going to punch a small hole to vent out steam while continuing to heat. Well after heating with FRH eating the meal I noticed that the inside has a metal type of coa...

Re: MCWs; do you like them???

So is there a certain place that will sell the MCWs outright or a civilian co?, I see very few and pricey on ebay. I know Acadamy Sports has some Mountain House, but cheaper thru the internet sites. If I'm correct they are dehydrated? Guess being around snow wouldnt be a problem to get em going.
