Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

The recent talk of folks having to leave the house in a hurry due to floods and storm damage, prompted me to check through my grab bag. Date check the antihistamines, check the torch batteries and check the spare set of clothes. Realised I only had 1 tissue in the pocket pack so that needed refillin...

Re: Prepping and climate change

The only real answer is to drive less or have less vehicles. I became self employed in 2012 and rarely travel more than 15 miles from home. Before that i worked for a firm and we would regularly travel much further. A one point i was working in monmouth , south wales, and it took close to two hours...

Re: Hey From Wales!

Hullo and welcome! To be honest, most folks who prep have just a bit extra in stock to see us and our immediate family through any tricky situations. The threat of redundancy focussed me. Hubby did end up being made redundant in the end and it was comforting to know I had enough food at the time to ...

this brought a smile to my face re seed saving

I have been planning my growing schedule and trying to be more organised this year so hopefully be more productive. I use the Real Seeds website and sometimes order from them.

Re: Off road Caravan/trailer tent to supplement a 4x4 BOV

We're looking at a second hand Opus. https://www.opuscamper.co.uk/ pole version as that's cheaper rather than the newer pneumatic air ones. The Opus are redicuously spacious and offer a lot of headroom but light inside and yet compact. Need to check the tow weight of my focus estate though. We went ...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

The current virus outbreak has prompted my preps this weekend to be medical in nature. Just bought some extra bleach, disinfectant and tissues with my weekly shop. Will date rotate and add to pracetamol stores as well as get some more hand sanitizer bottles. Always have some in my bag due to working...

Re: How would you cope?

Just wanted to know if anyone was preparing for natural disaster in an urban area? How would you deal with a heavily populated area and bugging in? Mike One of the things for general preparedness in an urban/populated area apart from the normal stores of tinned and dried food, water, batteries and ...

Re: Prepping and climate change

There's no point (well little point) in the UK busting a gut to be fantastic about it and all carbon neutral if the likes of China, India, Brazil and the US giving it a stiff ignoring. I can't see it but it would be nice if this became a rallying call for the planet, even if the global warming thin...
