fun article--I recommend the whole thing.

I did enjoy reading about the process used to make and improve MREs. Very interesting. Thanks for the pointer.


I don't like MREs.

1. I don't like MREs in particular. I've had them before (admittedly in the late '80s and they've improved since then) and they were downright nasty. I would not want to live on this food for any length of time.

2. I don't like "survival" food in general. During a SHTF situation you're already under a great deal of stress. You need comfort food, not weird stuff in sealed bags. Our survival food prep is similar to this: http://gundata.org/blog/post/the-most-basic-survival-food-li... Long on beans, rice, peanut butter, Spam, and canned soup. Short on gimmicks.

Regards,

- HCF
