A whole MRE seems excessive and a bit expensive. I've eaten quite a few REAL Turmat (https://realoutdoorfood.com/) and they are really good. Adventurefood is decent if I remember it right, but Turmat was my favorite.Well, I'm gonna find out this weekend.
From what I've read, serious advances have been made in the way these things are put together. I've got some from 2016-17 and I'm torn between my old man's C ration horror stories/the words of @TiggerNits and what I've heard from articles and other outdoorfags, who've told me they've improved big time.
Can now confirm, it was mostly quite decent. The 'wheat snack bread' is a culinary atrocity, but it makes sense when I think about shelf life and materials. The powdered drinks take forever to mix in your water bottle or canteen, it's like sand. Some of the items are strangely tasty. They taste good, but in a way that's hard to put a finger on. Biggest problem I see with it is that it creates too much trash.To be fair, I've heard they've gotten better in the near 20 years its been since I've had to eat one.
Thanks for this, I'm gonna give that a try.Turmat
This is a little off topic, but I actually have a large pad of graph paper where I'm drawing an imaginary city block by block. I use different colored pens to determine the zoning. I even meticulously drew out a highway interchange. The worst part is I was somewhat influenced by reading about ADF's make believe country.A "build your own town" game you play entirely on paper and by yourself. This suits me perfectly because I am in hermit mode ATM.
Hello fellow AF aficianado, that's how I got started on this current mini-foamer empire, found my Dad's old AF set in box, plugged it in, and it still ran.My old man had an American Flyer train set that we would put up in the carport of our old house sometimes,
