I skipped the middle of this whole thread. The Newer MREs are not that bad. You dont want to eat them multiple days in a row as all your food intake. For something to have in your truck an MRE and a couple bottles of water wouldnt be bad. some are better then others.

Interesting...mountainhouse.com is showing bandwidth limit exceeded messages (right now, anyway) when you try to click on any of the links on the left menu. That's actually a good sign!

All the Walmarts near me stocked up on MH late last week. I hit two this weekend and personally cleaned out one of them of their stroganoff, beef stew, lasagna and chili-mac. The other had already been cleaned out. Prices there are about $2.00-2.50 lower than Dick's Sporting or Gander Mtn.

I noticed that at walmart yesterday also.. I have been getting some for my BOB and a few extra to have if needed.. I also picked up a small Brunton backpacking stove for my pack with some fuel cans.

I need to get everything together and see how much the weight is up to now, I have most of the essentials, food, first aid and water filter/purification.

Incidentally, the JetBoil is ideal for use with Mountain House (and similar) food. It will bring a cup of water to boil in under a minute and it breaks down into a very small size - fuel, burner and stand all fit inside it - and it's lightweight.

For a cannister stove, the JetBoil is an awesome stove. And the JetBoil folks are gun people.
