It's two-pieces w/slimer and lighter utensils, a folding cup, a spice dispenser, and a rather neat idea of a c...

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:

Dave, Yeah that's always got a raised eyebrow or a cocked head from time to time. I first heard that comment a long time ago by a Infantry instructor teaching a class.

I just took alook at that link on ebay. I'm glad I get them free over here. That's too much to ask for even for me. :shock:
