Currently the only food I keep in my BOB are various granola style bars so as to have some dense calories if I find myself stranded somewhere unexpectedly. The BOB is always in my truck with an assortment of “might come in handy” kind of stuff. If I were purposely setting out on a journey through the woods where I was going to be on my own for a period, I would only bring food that can be eaten as is. I’m with 74 on the matter of including certain canned goods. If I need to make a fire it’ll be for warmth, not because I need to cook something.
