Super Neat! I love the chocolate says "reserve" chocolate! Tinned rations are the coolest.

I imagine all that really needs to be in there is gum loaded with methadrine. Energy, confidence, no hunger, gum takes care of thirst. Crash land and enough gum you run away in inhuman speeds while on fire, looking for bear's ass to kick.
