    BROWN BAG AND A THERMOS, the only way to go. That way you KNOW what your having for supper.[/QUOTE]

    I could not agree more! If you eat out, know who is making your food and try to watch the food handlers if possible.

      This always works...

      I keep an ice chest in the back of my truck. I can also throw it in the trunk of the cruiser when on patrol. I am going to be upgrading to Coleman's thermoelectric model soon so I don't have an ice mess. I just pack a few days worth of food and am usually fine. When I have the truck and am doing standing overnight shifts, I also pack a small gas stove so I can eat something other than a cold sandwich on occassion.

        We have drink/soda machines in several locations throughout the plant and 2 breakrooms with candy and sandwich machines. As some may have seen in the photos I posted before, my 'guard shack' is in a building shared with the plant scale house. Between us is a hallway with restroom and small kitchen. I rarely use the vending machines since I can keep my stuff in a fullsized refridgerator and microwave or fry it up when I want.

          Steak and Shake is expensive, but "If its in sight, it must be right" is extremely important when you're wearing a target.

          Otherwise, things like bringing food from home, stopping off at a 7-11, etc. I was fond of heating things like sammiches and lunchables and whatnot using the engine.

            Well, If I had the fridge and microwave I've wanted for my camper anyway, I'd really be set.

            These really work as advertised and have a nice low power consumption. Pricey as hell but you get what you pay for.


            Haven't heard from anyone who has one of these.

              We have several fast food restaurants in our corporate campus, but none are open during the hours I work. I consider that a good thing! We also have a full service employee cafeteria, but as someone who makes the occasional round through there I can't really say I am sad it isn't open at night.

              There are probably close to 100 vending machines here for snacks and pop. I generally plunk $2-3 a night in them for a couple of pops and some pretzels.

              I work a part time job once in a while and they actually have pretty good food like sandwhiches and dinners in their vending machines. Vending machine food has come a long way. Some of the stuff is very tasty. Although I am no food critic.
