  Mike,  Did you say you had some GI mess kits,  or have some coming in ?

I always have at least a couple of mess kits on hand.
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

  A USPS priority regional box to you would be around $7 and change, but I can fit 2-3 kits into it.  Or a kit with room left over for other stuff.  ;)

  I'm assuming that we are talking about the standard GI Stainless frypan and divided plate combo with the folding handle.
  If so, please set two kits and one case of MRE's aside for me,  and PM me your address again and I'll get the payment out to you at the end of the week.

  Thanks,

   Moe

Time to do some more "Wilder" shopping it seems...LOL

I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

Anger - Yes I do, I have a bunch.

MnS - just let me know what you need.
