    Almost perfect, August 13, 2008

    Ok, the product is fine as advertised. It’s an emergency supply of food for 1 adult for 3 days (remember to have enough water). I like to bring Mountain House packs with me when I go motorcycle camping or backpacking. They’re light, easy to pack, and I enjoy them. Sometimes they take the role of “just in case” food, and sometimes they serve as a planned meal. The chili mac with beef is a personal favorite, as is the beef stroganoff. I’m not particularly fond of beef stroganoff usually, but there’s something about a savory meal when camping. Mountain House meals typically taste better than many of the freeze-dried alternatives.

    So why did I say “almost perfect?” Well, I’d prefer it if they sold this kit with the 2-serving packets. I’m usually moto-camping or backpacking with someone. It’s super-convenient to have one package for two people. Less waste. On the plus side, it’s not 5-serving packages like some other emergency kits. Since it’s advertised for one person, this is expected.

    Second, the vegetable packs (which are 2-serving packs, though I’m guessing are intended for a single person) are a waste for a home emergency kit. Get canned vegetables instead. The vegetable packs are great for backpacking, as they will help keep your digestive system happy. They don’t come out quite as good as canned vegetables, but they’re much lighter.

    If you are debating between this and MREs, there’s a few things to consider:
    1) Personally, I think MREs don’t taste as good as Mountain House meals
    2) MREs don’t require a stove and fuel (MRE heating packs)
    3) MREs don’t require additional water (true of canned foods, too)

    I do have MREs occasionally for moto-camping, but not for backpacking, as I prefer the Mountain House meals.

    Mountain House has been around a long, long time. They have put a lot of effort into improving their product over the years and the current food is really very tasty considering it is freeze-dried. All of the entrees we’ve tried have been very good. (Although of course we haven’t tried them all and there may be some that barely resemble food. Like anything else, personal taste will be the deciding factor. Adding some spices, hot sauce, etc. to your stash will make a world of difference. ) And the seven year shelf life is nice. The only caveat is that as with any pre-packaged “kit” you cannot simply take their word for how long something is supposed to last, or for how many people. You have to look at the number of calories and do the math and decide for yourself how much you will want or need. Will this keep you from starving? Sure. But if you have the foresight to “be prepared” surely you can plan to do better than just not “starving.” And consider that in many of the scenarios where you might really need this food, increased physical activity and the greatly increased calorie requirements that brings might be the order of the day. We have five day’s worth of MH food for three people, but we did it by doing the calculations and deciding how much we needed/wanted. And it’s a much bigger pile than what this package might lead you to believe is sufficient. Lastly, in addition to adequate drinking water, don’t forget the water needed to prepare the food (and although not strictly required, a way to heat the water is a huge plus.)

    Although the food quality is decent – and the packages should last for a while, it’s a bit deceptive to say that a TOTAL of about 2500 calories is adequate for a person for three days. Unless you’re on a really tight diet. For a short term like 72 hours simply keep some canned food around (or some MRE’s) and you’d do much better. If you insist on camping (dehydrated) food – simply buy a few of the real meals from this company. At least you’ll be eating enough to keep the stomach rumbles down.

    Hello,

    We have seen several great deals in Mountain House recently. Does anyone think that this is a good housing investment, or is it better to invest in the SF East Bay?

  • ja_ynehuihan says:

  • LYoung says:

    I’m thinking to buy a new single family house in mountain house as an investment property. The builder is giving out huge incentive and the price is much cheaper than the houses in SF bay. Just wondering if it’ll be right timing to do this especially mountain house is a brand new town. Will I be able to rent it out? Thanks!!

    Can people who is familiar with the area mountain house, ca or who live near the area (like Tracy, Livermore, etc.) answer this question for me?

    Has anyone tried Mountain House freeze dried food, both the sweet things like the freeze dried ice cream and the savory entree-type things? How is it? How does it compare to Backpacker’s Pantry freeze dried food?
