Re: FOOD PACKET SURVIVAL GENERAL PURPOSE Date Packed 9125

Really nice review! It´s really cool to see how many calories you can get in such a small package!
I still have one question, though. What exactly are "wintergreen tablets"? Some sort of "Vivil" peppermint dragees you can buy in Germany? And why were they added to the food packet?

Re: Your current winter impressions

I took this photo this morning, again from my window. That´s how I like winter: Calm, sunny and bright, no grey fog and mud.

Re: 2004 MENU No. 7 "Chicken with Salsa"

I remember reading that the Panzerplatten have around 300 to 400 calories, but I´m not sure, how valid that is. Fortunately "all" my EPAs are rather new since they were either issued to me or to comrades, who didn´t want them and therefore "donated" them to me. I even have some rests of an EPA in my...

Re: FOOD PACKET SURVIVAL GENERAL PURPOSE Date Packed 9125

^My thoughts, too. Is that packet supposed to be for one day, or just one meal?

Re: 2004 MENU No. 7 "Chicken with Salsa"

Thanks for the good hints, mreheater and housil! Too bad the shortbread cookies are so prone to become rancid, fresh they´re definately a good dessert. Mhhh, honestly, I didn´t think about heating the packages in hot water. Next time I´m definately going to try that method. I´m not a huge fan of the...

2004 MENU No. 7 "Chicken with Salsa"

Alright, I recently bought a quite cheap menu on the German outdoor, hunting and militaria platform egun.de and decided to take the Menu No.7, the Chicken with Salsa. I checked the content list and found out that it comes with Mexican Rice, so I thought it would be quite spicy, what I like. Once I o...

The right car doesn´t help you if you´ve got a truck stuck on the road and can´t get past it. Or people with the "wrong" cars slowing you down. ^^

Re: Your current winter impressions

"My" winter impression. Location is Southern Germany, between the Black Forrest and the Swabian Alb. Heigh is around 650 metres above sea level. Last night we got around 20cms of snow after it didn´t snow the last days, but it´s still snowing atm and I guess it´ll be more, soon: http://img708.images...

Re: Need photos and dimensions for RCIR stove

surplus-addict, I just ordered a RCIR via EBay yesterday, so if you give me some time untill it arrives (which will probably take a week, because of all the holidays here) I can post some photos of the stove. ;)

Re: Field Regs regarding spirits

Yeah, MES means Mazar-E-Sharif. Bundeswehr acronym crazyness. ^^ Good luck to your buddy, I hope he makes it back safe. Sanis are being deployed quite often. I´m in a MP company and our NCOs and COs are being deployed quite often, too, especialy the CPTs, dog handlers and precision marksmen. I have ...
