    Thanks for taking the time to post all your great results and experiences. If my family was still large, living at home, I might invest in one. Currently my little dehydrator takes care my backpacking needs. In the event of SHTF, I am well armed and a good negotiator,

    Just mailed off my first 2 resupplies. First off I am starting with 4 Days of food plus and extra "meal."

    Mailed 4 days to Mountain Crossings. That package weighs 4lbs 6.6oz and includes food, coffee, and snacks. This weight also includes the packaging obviously.

    Mailed 5 days to TOG. Weighs 5lb 2.8 oz. It has some other resupply stuff as well.

    I will let y'all know how well the food holds up. If I need more or less or got it just right.

    Some of the snacks include FDed bananas, blueberries and raspberries plus walnuts and raisins. I need to be careful with those snacks as they raise my blood sugars too much if I eat them all at once.

    Nope. not so long as I have a good seal. I have found a few at home that somehow got "moist" due to what must have been either a bad seal or perhaps a very small puncture from sealing the food "too tight?"

    I may start adding an oxygen absorber as an extra measure but that won't help a bad seal or puncture.
