    There is a big difference between 'surviving' and 'living.' Some of my best meals ever have been on outdoor trips and there's no need to suffer with 2 weeks of crap, esp if you're not carrying the weight on your back.

    Unless of course crap is what you like, then go for it.

    Almost forgot, and I would've if I wasn't using them to whip up a fast dinner. Get a case of dehydrated hash browns from Costco. I think you get eight cartons for under $10, and they are fast, easy and absolutely delicious. I always toss a couple cartons in the bag for a weekend trip.

    Yeah, but the Mountain House meals taste better.
    I'd rather make a difference than a dollar.

    Overall i am with kenny and rory, and to a small degree with fh, i just don't find his mountain house as good as he does lol
    Hey now, Mountain House is far from gourmet. He was talking about living on MRE's for more than 2 days. Forget that. MRE's simply don't taste good. Mountain House is at least edible.

    There isn't a Mountain House meal out there better than the ratatouille, the maple sausage patties or the elusive salmon fillet. Sorry .

    Mountain House isn't bad but each bag is about half a meal.

    Look into DIY Freezer Bag Meals as an alternative that also allows you to customize to taste.

    Here is a sample recipe that you can tweak to suit.

    Perk’s Beef Stroganoff Serves 2
    In a quart freezer bag put:
    2 tablespoons powdered milk
    1 tablespoon butter buds (or use 1tablespoon fresh butter/margarine)
    1 tablespoon tomato powder (or soup mix)
    1 tablespoon flour
    Dash of pepper
    2 tablespoons dried onion
    1 cube beef bullion (crushed) (or use low sodium no MSG Herb Ox
    Beef bouillon)
    ¼ cup dried mushroom slices (or freeze-dried mushrooms)
    1 cup cooked & dried noodles (egg noodles, etc)
    1/2 cup dried hamburger

    In camp top with boiling water and cozy for 10 minutes.

    You can choose to cooking the bag itself or use a pot. https://www.mountbakerexperience.com...packing-meals/

    Buy a jetboil flash. Quick and easy to heat things up. Ours has made many simple meals.

    Also, hard boiled eggs. Eggs are cheap.

    I bought some of those on our last trip to Costco...I think FH recommended them. Not bad at all. Guys...let's get one thing straight here. I'm not intending to live on MRE's. I want them there as a 'just in case' meal if it's hammering down rain, and I can't light up the stove on the back of the boat. Cooking inside the cabin, or even under the top is not...I repeat...NOT an option, given the layout of the boat. As far as I know, most of the property in the areas we will be going is private, so even pulling over and putting up a tarp isn't really an option. All cooking will be taking place on top of the engine cover on the back of the boat, or it won't be happening at all. It's nice to dream of 2 weeks of nothing but sunny skies, but it's not realistic. When it's cold and wet out, a warm meal (MRE with heater) can be a real pick up. That's why they're coming along.

    Your on a boat, on a major waterway. I am reasonably certain you can escape lol
