Re: NVA-Ration K-Portion

called K-Portion
"K" is for the east German word "Komplekt".
As there was no (west) German word for Komplekt, there is also no English one.
That comes from russian комплект that means something like last reserve.

EPA Storage under subzero conditions

Hi folks,

something comes in my mind as i thourt about putting some EPA's into my car for a case of emergency.

How reacts EPA if it is longer time under Sub zero conditions.
I am a littel bit afraid that the cold could break up the Aluminium boxes.
In these case it would be unusable in a few days.
