It's okay for ideas but not as complete as others for the term Backcountry. Also, as Cdn's, some of the terminology is different, Raman seems to be Ichiban here, Butter Buds is tough, I did find a store in Springbank AB that sells survivalist products. LipSmackin' is all around better for intense back-country cookery.
