      Fellow Survivalists,

      I would eat Mountain House if it were the only thing on the shelves, but it is very pricey. One had might as well take along a butler with a silver dish holding Grey Poupon on a bug-out.
      I knew there was something I was forgetting.

A home vacuum sealer can help extend shelf life, however, if the homemade MREs are comprised of items you use on a regular basis, you can rotate them and you don't need a super-long shelf life.
      The other thing is that the portion sizes & the taste of pre-prepared foods may not be to your liking. I'd hate to be "stuck" with 50 cases of MH food after I discovered that the portion sizes were too small & I hated the taste. Still I suppose it could be bartered... On another note I've been monitoring Amazon.com for survival food. They also have MH but their prices aren't that great. They will "supposedly" be offering 6 & 12 month bulk purchases at some vague point in the future. I'm on an email list for that & if it comes to fruition I'll let y'all know.

      Thanks for the heads up on MH at WM! I personally can't stand WM either but I'll be sure to send my wife out there on a recon. ;)

          I just picked up a Master Chef foodsaver for $25 bucks on ebay, with 3 rolls of film. Not the top-of-the-line, but it will suit my needs.

              Yea i made chicken noodle and beef stew the other day. The i froze it into little square packages that were about 2 bowlfuls then I vac pakked it and put it right back into the freezer.

              I am now in the process of cooking amny meals and vac pakking them. That way if there is no power or gas I can still have cooked meals. My freezer has a generator that i will run for one hour a day to keep the thing cold. I tested it out. After 24 hours the temp inside starts getting to warm so run the generator with the freezer hooked up to it for an hour and it fixes the temperature problem. Then I don't lose my food I paid so dearly for.
