Re: The Gourmet Food Storage Handbook

Great review! :D Thanks for posting. I hadn't heard of this book before, but I do own a couple other "food storage cookbooks". Neither are "top notch", but they do both contain some pretty good stuff and are worth the money I spent on them, IMO. Here's the titles if you want to check them out. I got...

Re: Does anyone not have food in the BOB?

I agree with your observations about Ketosis. Fasting triggers the body to burn fat and, in essence, feeds you. I still carry food in my packs because even though kits are made to cover you for a pre-determined time frame, things can go wrong. A BOB/72 hour kit may become a "two week or longer/INCH ...

Re: Baby Wipes - share your tips, please

Wet Ones brand antibacterial baby wipes are good to use on the "nether-region" and they are "disinfecting"...they contain ethanol. I think I'd rather just use the clorox ones for sanitizing surfaces, the way they were originally designed/intended to be used, thank you very much.

Re: Home storage food reviews

I despise the #10 cans of freeze-dried and dehydrated stuff. The main reasons are: 1.) I'm single. It would take me a month or more to empty one. For that reason, I prefer the pouches or the smaller #2.5 My Choice cans from Provident Pantry. They're ultimately more expensive than the #10's, but, to ...

You could pick up an Elephant Foot sleeping bag, and pair it with a fleece hoodie. That's what I do for warmer weather/3 season hammock camping here in Florida.
