        Shpig is fat?

        Yes, salted bacon. Many now put the letter "k" at the end. But in Soviet times, the word "spy" had the meaning of a person conducting external surveillance of someone - spies of the tsarist secret police. They were also called in another way spies

    a couple of years ago, I became interested in this topic, started googling what to take on bike rides for the weekend. In the end, I was horrified, there was nothing sensible, but what is worth 500 + r (per day) and half full of garbage, cookies, sweets, ugh muck ... I even wondered what our special forces are taking those who run around the mountains , snigers + mayonnaise (only in winter, otherwise it deteriorates) + soft crackers + stewed meat + water and dry alcohol + a water decontaminant to them, everything else is answered with "better cartridges", occasionally add "porridge" from the IRP, but only when I have to leave for weeks ...
    As a result, I decided for myself that the best bars are "vitalad" (finely ground muesli wrapped in slightly sweet chocolate) + crackers + water, if there is boiling water, then bum packs + crackers or crackers + stew (a can of stew is cooked, then crackers are added to the state of porridge, enough for several people).

    I don’t know what modern Russian dry ration is, I haven’t tried it. And about the Soviet one I can say compact and tasty. Two jars of porridge (rice, buckwheat, barley, everything with meat) a jar of stewed meat or sausage, liver minced meat salt sugar tea. And of course the most delicious black crackers or biscuits, the same nothing and crispy bread (we were all not happy with them). Plus tablets for water disinfection. Tried lifeboat rations. Everything there is much more varied, including condensed milk in tubes of Teatralnye sweets, freeze-dried products (gorky soup) and canned water. Plus a fairly large first aid kit.

        In cold weather, the stew does not roll. She is like a stone. Better - meat sublimates. And in the frost in the cracker field you will chew, bite the salsa, bite with a candy and - beauty.

    Our sukhpai has something very wide in taste and quality. It seems the same ration, the same ingredients, but the manufacturers of these ingredients are different. As a result, it turns out that in one batch, one half of the ration is normal, and the second is disgusting. And in the next batch, what in the first was tasteless is quite edible and vice versa.
    In sum, IMHO - a solid C grade.
