MH is very good indeed, even 10 years after expiring date! Sodium contents don't bother me when I am outdoors. You sweat a lot and lose sodium. Unfortunately when I am indoors some of the deserts make my stomach burn. Real Turmat (DryTech) is also good. However, avoid the freeze dried cod stew! It t...

Great find! thanks for sharing. I remember these rations. Especially this main entree! You can imagine 12 young soldiers trying to sleep at night in a small tent, all having eaten beans & bacon. I was in the Dutch Air Force from 1978-1980, and in the early days we were provided with these old type r...

Hey Cracker, I recently visited a small army dump store in the centre of Amersfoort. They had a lot of Norwegian ration (still fresh) for only 10 euro's a piece. Sorry, I don't recall the name and address of the shop. But some internet search will do. It isn't always open so give them a call before ...

Could it be that worse, as housil described it was...??? ...Yes, defenitely is was that bad, or even worse! My excuses to housil for not believing him! The taste was bad (not terrib...

A friend's friend of mine knows for sure that Jussipussi's are for sale in Amsterdam. I do not fully understand him, but this is what he told me: The cheapest Jussipussi's cost about 50 euro to use. They are from Colombia. The more expensive specimens are European. You can't actually buy them, but u...

Final report about Oslo (I returned in the meanwhile to Holland): The Top Secret Army Shop wasn't there anymore. Empty windows. The Pentagon Shop had nothing special to offer (a lot of gothic style stuff). XXL had a large collection of affordable DryTech main entrees (49 NOK = +/- 5 Euro). So I boug...
Bypah, I spent the first 5 years of my life on Curacao, the Netherlands Antilles. After that my family and I went to live in Holland. I never missed the Caribbean, until I went back to Curacao for a short vacation, now some 12 years ago. In the meantime I went there for vacations a few times, and it...
