A great snack or meal.

B & M canned brown bread with raisins. 1/2 inch slices. Fried crisp. Add a little honey or real maple syrup and just enough Jamesons, rum or Scotch for flavor! Wow! High energy food that isn't pemmican! No refrigeration and inexpensive. Until you sit down and finish the bottle of Jamesons. Ha!

They certainly served in on board of Destroyers and Frigates back during the 80s and early 90s, particularly if you were operating in a remote area such as "gonzo station" in the IO,

It is a little known fact that the word SPAM is actually derived from an ancient Mesopotamian word which means "food of the freakin' GODS"!

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

I'm starting to see long-life UHT meals sealed in envelopes at the supermarkets here. I haven't tried them yet as I always cook from scratch, but they look good (beef stroganoff, stews and the like). These must be better than canned stuff. As an alternative to canned there is always smoked or cured. A whole smoked chicken is nice for making salads.

Re: Voyaging on $500 per month

For the ditch bag have stuff bought in a mountain climbing store. Yuppie meals ready to eat. It was on sale so bought a bunch. No expiration date.
Find peanut butter a good store to keep under the floorboards. Sometimes hard to find out of the states. Also keep a bunch of dried fruits ( apricots, dates, prunes, raisins).That way as long as you have flour and water and yeast you can always make some kind of meal.

Does anyone go with dried food? I'm drying a bunch (~6 months worth) to have on hand. We're also planning to dehydrate along the way so we can purchase in bulk when things are in season and cheaper.

Anyone try this?

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

One of the things I was looking forward to when I joined the Navy was a steady supply of S.O.S. ("chipped beef on toast" to the polite folk amongst us). Dad was on a subchaser in WWII, where they had it regularly, and we had it often when I was growing up. I think they served it to us *once* in four years. Guess what I asked Mom to fix for my celebratory discharge dinner.

It's kinda gloomy & rainy out today, I think I'll have some S.O.S. tonight. Bon appetite, y'all.
