Letter From a Mountain House Fan

We recently received this letter from one of our many Mountain House fans and wanted to share this with you.

"Howdy Mountain House Customer Service!

I am writing you to extend a huge thank you for salvaging our last backpacking trip! I took my significant other on her first ever backpacking trip last week, and long story short, there were quite a few hiccups.

On the very first night, we were caught in an unexpected thunder/hail storm at almost 12,000ft elevation, and all of the waterproofing on our tent failed. It pretty much ruined her experience, particularly for the first night. The one saving grace? The Mountain House food we had packed!

I was able to keep her spirits up with hot meals that she loved, and she even mentioned that the thing that made the trip better for her was how surprisingly delicious all of the food was. Her favorite was the lasagna and the Neapolitan ice cream, mine was the beef chili and macaroni and the biscuits and gravy. Each meal we ate was delicious, and it really made a huge difference!

Sharing my love for camping and hiking with her was extremely important to me, and I was really distraught when the trip was going so terribly. When she said that the rest of the trip was great, but that it wouldn't have been without being able to enjoy all of the meals that we packed, it made me realize the debt of gratitude I owed you and your food. It's such a small thing, but it made such a huge difference in her experience. I had to take the time to thank you!

C.W.

— Climber, Camper, and Extremely Grateful Customer"
