Re: Meal, Quick Serve 6 Man

Two things I noticed here: 1) Definitely uses a lot of MCI components, or components from group ration kits. Whoever designed this might have a great idea from the 5-in-1 ration before. 2) Bears resemblance to a very early UGR dinner ration, minus the self heaters or tray ration heaters. I'm going t...

Re: Meal, Quick Serve 6 Man

Does anybody know when this might have been field tested as prototype? Looks to be around the 1950's or 1960's

Re: Found Three Cases of Brown Bag MREs

Small world, that's awesome! Last summer, I was in Sandpoint and walked past Army Surplus 1 but it was closed since it was a Sunday evening. One of these days, when time permits, I will need to take a trip up there again and visit that store. I'm also surprised that it's owned by the same people gi...

Re: Information about MRE pizza

Yeah, I remember that conversation too. The thing is, even though the packages are foil lined and have a desiccant packet they still trap moisture. I had a 2015 blueberry turnover the other day and soon as I took it out, there was a little bit of goopy-ness and some damp bread to be seen, so it is p...

Re: Meal, Quick Serve 6 Man

Aside from the outrageous price, I'd be curious to see what's inside the box. I don't think we have seen anything like that before on the forum. That and the package is in near perfect condition.

I'm also wondering if it is constructed like the 10-in-1 or 5-in-1 ration before its time.

Re: Found Three Cases of Brown Bag MREs

The one on Division? If so, that's the one! I was speaking with Kevin and he and I were discussing rations a bit. He also mentioned that he knew someone who was also interested in vintage rations on the west side. I'm thrilled by the "small world" effect so I wonder if he was referring to you! That...

Re: California Fires

JT1991, Ok, that is a start, now let me throw in some other ideas just to get your mind a going. If you do have to leave in a hurry, take enough supplies for 72 hours. Mostly by that time things will have settled down and perhaps fire officials will let you back into your neighborhood. Also, if your...
