I've been slowly adding some food to the bushcraft kit. I picked up another two Mountain House beef stew pouches to add to the beef stroganoff and lasagna with beef as my backup food. I also have three cans of Spam in different flavors and a can of Chunky Country vegetable with beef burger. Other items include a pound of plain rice and some instant mashed potatoes. I'll end up adding Lara bars for snacks and trail food. I intend to take perishable food when I head out with it but I want some canned food that can be eaten straight out of the can if need be and some freeze dried for just in case. This way if I stay out an extra day or two, or something happens to the fresh food I have a back up.

I have the cans in a small nylon bag and the other food in a dry bag. I still have some spices and will add some more packets of instant potatoes to round things out.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like I'll get out this fall, too much to do and not enough time, but I'll have to hope for spring.

Added a 14.5 oz can of Keystone beef, yummy. I also added some more individual mashed potato packages for a total of 6. I think I'm good on back up food. I'm going to wait until the Aldi opens in the next few weeks to pick up the spices I want.

Nice, went and checked the label out since we dont have anyone nearby carrying the product and i was not familiar with it as such.  8 - 2 ounce servings it says... which is odd for 14.5 ounce can..... lol  but it works out to 560 calories give or take with about 1000mg +/- of sodium so its decent in that department.

to purchase online its $100 for 24 small or $85 for 12 larger 28 ounce cans.... not outrageous, though i suspect there would be a shipping fee on that.... gonna have to check my goto online food place where if we order over $35.00 its free 2 day shipping...... and we get a rebate with the group we belong to here n the several states.....

Walmart here is carrying it. With their ship to store you ought to be able to get it at any Walmart: https://www.walmart.com/search/?query=keystone%20meats&typeahead=keystone%20meat

The smaller cans are more expensive per ounce, but perfect for this instance. We've been using their chicken, ground beef, turkey, pork and beef for a few years in the larger cans. For a while their ground beef was cheaper than ground beef at any of the stores. All of it is good.

I've been burning birch for the last couple of weeks to heat the house, so I decided to use some of the bark for my bushcraft pack. I like to keep some tinder in my packs, usually it's fatwood or some fatwood dust. I figured since I have a cord of birch I'll save all the bark once I have the fire in the wood furnace going. I'm keeping the thiner, more papery bark, for my bushcraft kit. The thicker bark I put into old kitty litter buckets for use in starting the fire in the wood furnace or adding some oomph when needed.

So far I have one bucket and am starting a second, and I have 8 quart ziplock bags and a gallon ziplock bags for my bushcraft and camping kits. I'll pick up some dry pine needles and add some other tinder and have a nice quart or gallon bag in each bag and keep the rest around for later use.

Once the fire is going the birch bark isn't necessary so I might as well make good use of it otherwise. I should be able to get a lot, I've barely made a dent in the cord of birch I bought. I'll also be getting more birch this year from a friend's property since he has lots of dead birch.
