Goal: good foil dinners with at least 8 month shelf life

Every April and October we go through our 72 hour kits and update clothing and switch out the expired food. This helps our kids remember that we're prepared for emergencies, at least.

My new goal in the next 6 months, now that they're old enough to do the switching out themselves, is to see if I can find some foil dinners which don't need refrigeration and use up my food storage that we can pack. That way if we do the idea below, we'll be ready!

Here's one great site for foil camping recipes..... but I'd have to think through how to make any but one (granola smores) last in my 72 hour kit without refrigeration.

Idea from a friend....
Grab your 72 hour kits and live on them for a last minute camping trip with the family.
Then you'll really see if you're prepared. Be sure to grab enough water, a couple of board games, the tents and sleeping bags.

We'll see if we're up to that adventure in about 15 months.
