Re: New member

Hullo and welcome! You are not alone in your thinking. We have ‘Hotel Bags’ in case of forced evacuation ( think gas leak, flood, etc) , but as for running to the woods ( which is a fantasy of many Preppers!), all I can say is, “stuff that for a game of soldiers.” The bug out bag is something of a p...

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

As far as this week's preps, I have been Christmas prepping again. I just don't trust the mad shop rush that is likely to ensue in a week and half's time when the English lockdown is lifted.

Have a good nose about on the forum. Yes, while quite a few of us may have an interest in bushcraf...

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

Izzy_mack, you had a power cut, we had no water for half an hour. Ok so half an hour is nothing, however I had no idea how long we would be w/o water coming from the mains so I opened a 2 litre bottle from the stores. 1 Litre went in the kettle for 2 cuppas and some hot water to wash a few bits up s...

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

Picked up a selection of apples from various nearby homes who are still putting out their excess apples for folks to help themselves to. We have some very kind people here abouts who seem to get gluts of apples most years. So I have been peeling, chopping and vac sealing then freezing them. Also che...

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

Prepping for Christmas this week, which given the looming brexit and covid issues is probably a wise move this early. Made a list ( checked it twice, and yes I know who's been naughty or nice 😉) So purchased choccy gift boxes for the littlies in the family, bought some minced pork stuffing and some ...
