Kman, I was just reading the threads for retort pouches and my questions is does Castleberry's have a website which you can order from?

Hey,
Does anybody know firsthand if you can go to these people and put together an A-packet, almost like putting together your own MRE? Be interesting to find out and how much?

Hey guys,
Just wait until the events in LA and the south calm down. I'm sure that by next spring there will be a flood of Mre's on ebay, and the great deals will be abound. :wink:
