What's your favorite Mountain House meal?

My favorite Mountain House meal is a tie between Homestyle Chicken Noodle Casserole & Yellow Curry.

How did you first hear about or experience Mountain House?

I first heard about Mountain House when I was in Boy Scouts but didn't truly use the freeze dried meals until my thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2013.

What's your favorite place to hunt/hike/fish/camp/be?

Anywhere on the Appalachian Trail but specifically, Grayson Highlands State Park. What beats wild ponies roaming the land?

Top three pieces of gear that you never leave home without?

Pocket knife, camera, and hammock

Summit more of the 4000' footers in The White Mountains of New Hampshire
