Homemade MRE, intro video

Some decades ago, the military created the Meal Ready to Eat, aka MRE. The concept was that everything in the pouch could be eaten with minimal (if any) preparation. Over the years, these meals have improved significantly. Nonetheless, there are those of us that like to create our own, tailored to our tastes or specific requirements. Hence, I came up with a name: Shipwreck Rations. Here’s a video introducing my concept.

Over the coming weeks, you’ll see a total of four individual meals and two 24HR packs. Each one is truly an MRE, meaning you can eat them as is. There’s also a heating method, either flameless ration heater or micro stove, to warm them up. These are useful to have on hand for disaster both man-made and natural, as well as camping, bicycle treks, flying safaris, and much more. Keep one or two at work in case you have to shelter in place. Either way, it is better to be prepared than to be hungry! Enjoy every meal.

Fall Foliage Flying (2014)

Had the good fortune to catch the changing leaves from the air. Was around the Mount Pocono, PA, USA, area and snapped this photo of the Pocono Raceway:

Note those beautiful colors all around the track. Moving west, I snapped this shot of Beltsville Dam:

No doubt in the next week or so those leaves will be at peak colors. If you have the chance, take a fall foliage flight. It’s worth every penny to see things from way up there. Always do your checklist.

Koi on the Go, food truck

Koi On The Go is more compact than many food trucks I’ve seen lately. In fact, it’s a small trailer made of what looks like aluminum diamond plate. Here it is, parked at the Penns Woods Winery:

Not much room to work inside there, but the food was delicious. Let’s take a look at the menu.

We tried the Asian Sandwich and the Crab Cake Sandwich. Wow! Both of them delicious. Take a look:

Talk about tasty. That Asian Sandwich had the rich flavor of the pulled pork amped up with the bbq sauce. Yummy. I should have had another one! Anyway, it was all good. And the price was very fair given the high quality. Enjoy every meal!
