    USS Toledo SSN 769

    Hey, I commissioned this boat back in the 90's. Its not a prepping video, but, it shows how they have to manage food for several months, in a small area for 150 plus people... Interesting numbers, and video..

    Thanks much for sharing that with us.
    A buddy did for years in the Navy as a submariner. He says life on a sub isn't easy but the food makes it bearable.

    Spent some time on an older carrier CVA-60 The Saratoga . What really impressed me was 101 air craft and 5,000 on board how they kept all that air power up and ready and managed to feed the crew.

    Gotta hand it to those guys. I'm not claustrophobic and I have been on a WWII U boat, there is no way I'm leaving the dock.

    I'll be done when I'm finished, if that's not fast enough, take a number please.

    I've toured the Drum many times at the USS Alabama park in Mobile. I know that boat was in service during WWII and today's boats are better, but it is still mind-blowing.

    I thought the destroyer Turner Joy was cramped until I went on the USS Blueback years ago in Portland Or. which my earlier post stated as a U boat, my apologies.

    Spent 6 years plowing holes through the water on the SSN637, Northern run load outs were always the worst. Walked on number 10 cans for months hitting my 6 foot 2 inch head on EBA ports and other low hangers. Best time of my life great memories.
