Storing MREs

Awhile back I posted a video on youtube about storing MREs. Lets just say that some of the comments are either really funny, or really sad – depending on how you look at it.

It all started when a buddy of mine cleaned out his food stockpiles and gave me about 8 1/2 cases of MREs. Not being the one to pass up free food preps, I gladly accepted the MREs and loaded them up in the SUV. On the way home my wife and I decided to get one of those plastic shelving systems from a local big box mart.

One side of my sons closet was cleaned out, the shelving system was assembled and the MREs were put on the shelves in order to when the test / inspect date. The ones dated in 2011 were put on the bottom, the ones dated in 2010 on the second shelf up from the bottom, and the ones that your supposed to test were put on the third shelf up from the bottom. Some backpacks / daypacks were put on the very top shelf.

The following video is the one that I posted on youtube.

Armchair Survivalist At It Again

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

It seems that those armchair survivalist are at it again, this time they are posting stuff on my YouTube gardening videos.

If your wondering what an armchair survivalist is, they are the people that sit at their computer chairs, post comments on videos, post on forums, might even have a blog, and never actually “do” anything. They are the people that know everything there is to know about survivalism, their masters of everything, but not of them have never actually done anything. They tell you how your doing everything wrong, but offer no proof that they have actually done it themselves.

A few days ago I posted a video on YouTube about storing MREs. One guy posted a comment – “You should never store MREs in your house. The temperature does not stay cold enough and they will spoil faster.”
