14 posts in this topic

well im just looking to see if anyone knows where I can purchase MRE's MEALS READY TO EAT like the ones used for the military i use them for hunting season. I dont want the other civilian imitation or any other kinds besides the actual MREs. If anyone knows any stores or where to go to purchase them i would appreciate it. I would buy them online but they wont be here by saturdays archery opener

Go to any Fleet Farm and head to the camping section. They will have Mountain House freeze dried meals that are civilian version of what the company makes for the military. Most camping supply stores probably have these too or army surplus stores may have the real thing.

Never trust an Army/Navy surplus storethat doesn't carry MRE's......

In my neighborhood, that would be G.I. Joes.

MRE's tend to have a lot of junk in them that you don't need, plus they're heavy, I think you'd be better buying the freeze dried mixes, romain noodles, candy bars, jerky, ham, etc by themselves. You can do better than MRE's.

I would agree. Like I said, fleet farm has tasy freeze dried civilan versions like alfredo pasta, lasagna, beef strognoff and even neopolitan ice cream or rasberry crumble for dessert! grin.gif

Sorry I would have to agree that MREs are the way to go. Plus they bring back many memories from my time spent in uniform. If it is good enough for our troops in harms way I can eat them cool.gif

You can get MREs on the net. There are so many to choose from now. I would have to say that the NEW MREs are WAYYYYY better than the ones I had when I was in the military in the mid to late 90s.

      thanks for the info, we will wait and see too? not worth it. will walk out if we have too. much more fun getting there the day before. was up two weekends ago and had 16" of ice. they say 20 " at the sight of the tournament. Hopefully the colder weather will help

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?

      Yes.  On the north end.
