Solar oven turkey

So I decided to try turkey in my solar oven!  I'd read that putting it breast down makes the white meat more juicy so I tried that.  This is a photo of the turkey after about 4 hours.  I was surprised that it browned & crisped!
This turkey was about 8 pounds.  For some reason I was sure it would take all day.  So I didn't even check it until after 4 hours.  It was completely done.  In fact I think I probably should have checked it an hour sooner.

The turkey tasted delicious!  Just like in the oven at home. Complete success!   It made me wonder; in a survival situation....there's all these geese around.  Hhhmmm.....

Disposable warming blanket

This looks really interesting!  I can't quit thinking of places I'd like to have these.  My 72 hour kit, my car.  Even my backpack when snowshoeing in the back country!
