We actually had a bunch of stuff like that on board too. If we were really desperate we could have eaten cold soup from a can for a week or more. We would have had to be in really bad shape before that could happen though. Kids (ours anyway) tend to be fussy about what they eat.

This brings up an interesting idea. We should look for non-perishables that they would like to eat cold. Who said survival needs to involve unpleasant dining?

Thanks being down to earth and honest enough to share your adventures/experiences and ummm mistakes with us all, for those of us that aren't yet seasoned salty dogs it is encouraging to know there are others out there as well who are learning as they're going. Sound like you guys are having blast. Best of luck with it all.
