I ordered--

Some items can be mix and match to make a case. This way you can have an assortment of veggies, fruits or entrees.

I wonder if RMR can help us get into the habit of. . .

consuming "old" stashed emergency food supplies to keep our stock fresh enough when we really need them. I'll log onto their website and find out. -y

Grocery store food has a longer shelf life than the date,

It doesn't become poisonous or anything.
One thing I do is to buy the items I use a lot of at the Fall Case Lots Sale.
Then just remember to put the new at the back of the shelf, or stack it under the old case so you use the old first.
I have done this for years---and not to stock up for emergencies---but just because I live a ways from the store and it saves time and is a convenience to have it on hand.
I also have always bought items when they are on a good sale. You can save a lot of money this way.
If you have extra freezer space you can put flour and pancake mix in to store it. And speaking of freezers, If the electrical system goes down for long enough to spoil food, please be sure you have the ability to pressure can the contents, or at least have lots of salt to make jerky.
I also fill most empty juice, wine, and brandy bottles with water and store them, and I fill the big liquid laundry detergent and bleach containers with water and store them. These can be used to wash your hands, flush the toilet, etc.

Bob at RMR

is a very close friend of mine.
I was instrumental in his decision to become a DP sponsor.
He's a Ron Paul supporter.

I know for a fact that Bob is very serious about helping people to get prepared for what's coming. I talk to him about it all the time.
I think this huge discount on the Mountain House food could help alot of people, and it's the biggest discount that can be given by any Mountain House distributor.

If you haven't seen his online catalog, you should check it out by googling Ready Made Resources.
His catalog has almost anything you could dream of, for preparing. He's been in the business for many years, and he knows how to apply the products he sells, and can offer you excellent information to get the best results.

I think it's a good idea to work with those who support our efforts here.

Thanks BigT...

Do you know if this has to be in climate controlled storage to have up to a 25 yr shelf life?

How does it taste?

I have a bunch of staples, but would be nice to have something different.

+2!

+2!

Not sure

about what's needed for 25 years life.
However, I can say that I'm still eating the supply that I bought in 1998(getting ready for Y2k), so that's 12 years, and it's still as good as it was 12 years ago.
It has been stored in my cabinets in the kitchen, and I have no air conditioning, and it hits 95-100 degrees here in the summer alot.

Taste is very good. It's not like going to a restaurant, but it's about as good as it gets for a portable meal.
Sometimes I'll just open up a pouch when I don't feel like going to the store.
Beats the hell out of rice and beans. You can do alot of rice and beans, but it sure is nice to have something a bit more normal every so often.
Believe it or not, the eggs and bacon is alot better than I expected. Pretty good actually.
I like the Oriental Spicy Chicken alot, and the Chili Mac is a good stand-by, and the Beef Stroganoff is good, and I like the Spaghetti too. Oh, the Turkey Tetrazzini is also very good.

I made a small portable passive-solar water heater with a thermometer in the cap that can get the water up to pasteurization temps, and even almost to boiling on a hot day.
I can fill that water heater up, and pasteurize the water free of bacteria, and have enough water to rehydrate a Mountain House meal pouch. No fuel or power needed. Good for coffee or tea too. The heater I made will hold 12 ounces of water, and will bring it over 160*F in less than 40 minutes in the sun. In the winter, it takes more like and hour and ten minutes.
On a good day, it averages 2 degrees thermal gain per minute, which can get water up to as hot as the hot water tap in your home in about 15-20 minutes on a hot day. It really heats fast until it gets over 130 degrees and then it starts to slow down some, and when you first put it in the sun, you can watch the thermometer move quickly.

Here's a 2 pics of a smaller(4oz)model that I made first.
The reflector rolls around the cylinder body and protects it during transport, and makes it handier for toting around. I use rubber o-rings as tie-wraps around it to hold it shut during transport.

Closed for travel
http://lytonics.com/lytonics_minimalist_002.jpg

For the larger model, I made it twice as long, and a little larger diameter with a larger reflector, and used a rubber stopper on the top with a meat thermometer poked thru the stopper. If it builds pressure, the stopper pops out, so there's no hazard.

Those pics are from my old website which I don't support anymore. Please don't try to buy anything off that website. I don't make any of that stuff anymore. Nobody wanted any of it anyway.
But you can figure out how to make one if you want to, by looking at it. It works good and is very durable and portable. As far as I know, it's the fastest heating portable solar water heater on the planet. I've researched the others a couple years ago, and this is as good or better than anything out there, and it's smaller.
Basically a portable adaptation of the commercial parabolic trough type heaters that are used on top of some commercial buildings for heating.

Your passive-solar water heater looks

professional, and your description sounds wonderful; if you wanted to produce them, I'd think there would be a market for non-mechanically-oriented people.

I'm off grid also Big T

Why haven't you made a 12 volt swamp cooler to run off panels?.Mine brings it down about 15 to 20 degrees depending on outside humidity.Once acclimated to the heat it feels like much more.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Because

I'm in the Tennessee foothills near the Smokies, and we have about 98% humidity all summer.
Swamp coolers don't work here.

Understood

Yeah,Humidity is the killer for swamp coolers,thanks.

No A/C ???

You are a badass.

I can work in the heat, but I sure like having a place to cool off. It has been insanely hot and humid here. Are you totally off grid?

Interesting water heaters you have there. Love the ingenuity. Wish our foxholes were closer.

Speaking of...
Got to meet "Nui" the other day. I never thought in a million years that I would meet someone through the internet, but he and his girl, are super nice folks.

It is good to know that there are like minded folks just down the road.

Thanks for the info. I think I'll order some stuff.

Don't google, click on the link on this page!

I think that helps support this website. Ready Made Resources has a wonderful variety of preparedness supplies, and I love to go to the website!

Good point!

I forgot about that.

That is the best deal you're

That is the best deal you're going to get for Mountain House. It's the cheapest discount Mountain House will allow its vendors to sell their product, and MH only allows a small amount of time for their vendors to have that discount.
