I loved Dinty Moore canned stew when I was a kid. Me and my buddy, Jim, would put a couple cans in our rucksack, with some candy bars and we were ready for any adventure. We cooked the stew in the can over an open fire, just like a couple of hobos, and it tasted great. We had our BB guns to fight off any wild beasts who might attack us and walkie talkies to communicate with, a pup tent, flashlights, binoculars, compass etc. That was real adventure for pre-teenage boys.
