Quick, Easy-To-Make Meals For Hikers, Campers And Emergencies
Having a solid supply of emergency food is essential these days – not just for campers, hikers and hunters who need quick, great tasting, simple meals while they're out in the wild – but also for families to have supplies on-hand in the event of unforeseen events.
Wherever you fall into those categories, it's crucial that you properly prepare for all potential scenarios.
Hikers, campers, hunters and other outdoorsmen:
How will you refuel when you're out on the trails – without weighing down your gear with food supplies?
What if you plan to be away for several days? What's the easiest way to bring and make meals that won't be a burden to carry?
Families and anyone who wants to be prepared for emergencies:
Sadly, far too many individuals and families are completely unprepared for unforeseen events that could leave them without food or water for days. It's scary to think about, but take a second to imagine yourself in such a situation:
You're trapped somewhere with nothing to eat.
What if no one is able to reach you for days? What if you're miles away from people, stores and any type of help?
What will you do to prevent yourself from starving?
Where will you get the food to feed yourself or your family?
Most people assume, "It won't happen to me." But the frightening fact is that these situations happen to people all the time – and it doesn't take a major event like a terrorist attack to make it happen. Mother Nature alone can change your life in a matter of minutes. If you or your family is not prepared, the consequences could be fatal.
This isn't meant as a scare tactic. It's an urgent warning that you must be prepared – always.

Emergency Food Scenarios – Why Do You Need It?
Who needs emergency food? Everyone. At ActiveDutyGear.com, a lot of our gear is used by avid sportsmen, campers and other outdoor enthusiasts. But when it comes to survival food, there's almost no limit to the need.
Regardless of whether you spend the bulk of your time outdoors or not, here are just a few of the many possible events in which you'll want to have survival food on hand.
Major weather events
Floods, blizzards, hurricanes – you name it. No one on Earth is immune to Mother Nature's harshest elements. If a major weather event leaves you trapped with no access to food, you'll regret not having emergency supplies on hand. This applies to you whether you're camping or at home.
Same scenario. We saw last winter how a rare, minor snowstorm in the South crippled the region and left many people stranded in their cars, miles from home. Just imagine what a bad earthquake can do. And you don't need to live on the San Andreas Fault to be at risk of one happening in your area.
In a major attack, whether it's bioterrorism, explosive or something else, there are a number of scenarios in which you could be stranded without access to food for hours or days. Having emergency food on hand at home, in your vehicle and in the workplace is a must.
Let's face it – the worst emergencies are those you never see coming. Whether it's a meltdown at one of the 100+ nuclear reactors in the United States or a freak accident that traps you in your own home, you can prepare for the unthinkable by having emergency food supplies in your home at all times.
