Don't run, you'll only die tired!
Mountain House for taste and weight hands down. They make a awesome buffalo flavored wrap filling, it has a good amount of heat. MRE's have their place no water needed and can warm them on a hot engine block.
The mountain house buffalo chicken. I just bought two more after my trial one a few weeks ago and I posted it up in an older thread, tasty stuff indeed. and 62 grams of protein in the 2 suggested serving size pouch.
Having lived in the desert for over 30 years anything that requires water I look at a lOOOOOg time before I try to store it. Without a well or river handy I try to store/keep on hand at least 90 days supply of water.
To old, to slow, to beat up and some what disabled I know I am going to have to Bug in. I try to keep canned stuff that can be eaten without water if necessary and could be eaten cold. Soups, Spam, corned beef hash, and of course Veggies.
I have my share of rice and dried beans but then again there is the water issue.
One of things I was taught a long time ago is that meat of any kind requires a lot of water to digest. But we need the protein.
OF Course eveerything gets rotated.
I keep reminding my of the 3;s
3 minutes without air
3 days without water
30 days without food.
I spent many a year eating canned "C"s not always by choice and have a small stash of MRE's on hand
Surivial is just an unplanned adventure when you are prepared
Stock MH, MRE's, Coleman FD, Bacon Flavor Spam (Darn Good Eats), & a lot of canned veggies. Also have a supply of MainStay food bars. Have a dehydrator, working on getting a vacuum sealer to vacuum seal my dehydrated food. Have tried the Beef Stroganoff from Wise Foods, not bad but needed some seasoning.

The military issue ones I tried, I would say were equivalent to eating dirt. taste, texture, and nutritional value. I swear it was coming out of me like lava. I been eating too country for all those preservatives!
