    I know it's not polite to poke fun at men who never served, but holy shit.

    Mountain House is very good for camping and long storage, but it's not my first choice to eat if I have a choice.
    I try and buy a bit to set back a couple times a month.
    My "Ah Ha!" moment was Chili with no beans + a can of Beans, I doubled my food for like 75 cents more. Being really cheap I can stretch that with some brown rice and it's going to feed me for two, maybe three days.
    It aint mobile but it's handy if you're dug in.

    I watched some of his videos. Oddly soothing to watch him unpack those WW2 MREs. Surprisingly good condition on some of them. Just shows that if they packed them right without any defects those things will remain edible basically indefinitely. And those rations weren't really intended to last that long either is the amazing thing.

    I agree with his sentiment that it would be cool to see if you can track down anybody who actually worked in the manufacturing of those things and show them that they are still edible.

    It really might not be a bad time to inspect your food preps, throw away anything questionable and top off just in case.
    Don't forget some food preps for the dog.

    I was gonna send him two cases (one opened, one sealed) from 1983 once. I can't even remember where they came from. Probably out of a barn. Anyway, I found out they were that batch with the "cheese spread of death" that Steve claimed was "the worst thing he had ever eaten" - and this is a guy who ate reconstituted dried beef slime from the Boer War. These came in those dark brown rubber packs and had other delicacies like pork patty and hot dogs (4 Fingers of Death). So, I gave them to a guy at a gun shop just to get rid of them. I think he said he would put up a display or something, but whatever. I'm just glad they are gone I got tired of looking at them in the shed.
