    Anyone have a place they would recommend for buying MRE's or IMP's?

    I like Amazon for a lot of things like this. They buy in quantity and you know that you will be getting current issue stuff. I got a great deal on MREs years ago. I also got a case of food poisoning from one of them. TALK about turning a solo camping trip into a misery!!! For two days I was down and sick as a dog. Since nobody was expecting me back any time soon I was on my own. I was about 10 miles in and walking was the only way out. I was fortunate in that I had plenty of water and didn't get dehydrated.

    You can get more's from military depos. There's one down the street from my house that me and my sister Used to visit all the time. We wanted to try a mre just cause of curiosity (before my prepping) I like the taste better than my own cooking. She liked it. Sounds like me and her know where she stuff food is when there is a personal need for it. I got a stock of mre's so does she.

    First off having been forced to consume them, i absolutely despise MREs but in a pinch they do what is needed. I know a few guys that are willing to sell me MREs at a discount if I trade them some work or something. Otherwise it is about 8 a pack from each of them. Which is bit much for my blood.

    having had some MRE's I don't have a very high opinion of them, I prefer the dehydrated food packs you can get in good camping shops, I have a weeks supply in my stockpile.

    I make MREs of sorts with just add water mean mixes, extra spices and a seal a meal vacuum sealer. I have several kinds of dehydrated soup that I have added ramen noodles to, red beans and rice dry mix, gumbo mix that I add canned meat to. I also have packaged slices of spam and canned hams, packaged bacon along with rice, beans and lard. My home made mixes are great and VERY cheap so I don't save them for long before using them and making more. Since I am staying in place I really don't have to stay all that light but I like to have some trail foods for camping and just in case.
