Still very fluffy despite of the freezedried vacuum packing method.. :wink:

Pics of rations are always welcome; the second best way to "check" rations.
Sure, someone may one day kill me with my own gun.
But they'll have to beat me to death with it because it's empty.

To tide you over some more, here are pics and review of bumblebee lunch on the run. next up will be hormel compleats chicken marinara... you do realize I said sopakcos and MORE, right?


My first guess would be that this is bumblebee's comeback for starkist's lunch-to-go. Crackers were like normal ritz only 40% or so thinner, most likely so they fit in the package... they all had small tidbits broken off, my guess is that this was caused because the package had taken probaly taken abuse since there was a dent in it anyway. tuna itself was just like the tuna salad found in starkist's lunch to go only it had less onion and was a little more creamy. I perfer the starkist tuna salad better but this was still good. The choco chip cookie was good, it had nothing special about it exept for the fact that the chocolate chips were more like big chunks. The peaches were very sweet (they were in sugery syrup) and just about the same as any canned peaches, tasty. the entire meal was 510 calories and I payed 2.50 for it at walmart. overall pretty good. p.s. pics are in next post, it said "the extension bmp is not allowed and wouldent let me do it in this one... :shock:

Along the same idea, I use imageshack.us. Free and easy.

I'd recommend not using .bmp files at all - they're usually pretty huge in size compared to .jpg files. Just re-save the files as .jpg and the uploading should work fine.

As for hosting your pics on external sites like housil mentioned, that'll work, too. Personally, I like it better when the pics are posted/hosted directly here because it drives me crazy when I pull up an old post and see the picture links have gone dead because the pics were too old or expired off the external server.
