Some of the newer MREs aren't bad if you're really hungry, but I can't imagine that a 3-year-old and a 16-year-old would be very pleased with them! I worry the most about Noah...he's way too young to be forced into survivalist mode by an unstable father. JC's FB profile says he's from Alaska...I don't know if that has been verified or not, but it seems reasonable to think he would head north. Although that could just be another attempt at throwing LE off his trail, I guess. I just really hope they aren't in Mexico.
