    Buggy: Here is one for your wild edibles library. There is an entire series of them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nos7t-beKKE

    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is you are stupid, and make bad decisions.

        I believe I know which ones he is talking about! He can correct me if I'm wrong:


        They are made from Hormel and come in little trays.

          I have a box of MRE"S that are now about 6 months out of date. Don't know rather to pitch them in trash or if they are still good. I am not going to buy anymore as they are for only 5 years and I to would rather make up my own MRE"S as I really think it would be best way to go.. I would have to check the salt content on the Hormel trays. Hormel seems to put way to much salt and hubby can''t have all that salt. he is restricted.

            I've hiked and used the Hormel meals in my RV, they are thin and you can stack a bunch up in your bag. They come about 200 Cal per serving (1 Container) AND... they come in Dinty Stew flavor! (My favorite!)
