Re: Eating when SHTF

Very good read. I have read the odd thing before on this site from him. Certainly makes you thinks long and hard about those situations. Very far removed from the Hollywood glamour or post apocalyptic survival gaming world - where you always get to start over if you screw up! Thanks for the link.

Re: Hints That Western Civilisation is Starting to Crumble

One of the things my much travelled family picked up on in travels to places like Serbia, Czech Rep, Ukraine, Poland etc was just how many people who live outside the cities live an almost self sustaining lifestyle.

Re: Close combat self defense

Any martial art improves fitness, coordination, reflexes and control. All good things if you found yourself in a self defense situation. (Control being essential.) However, as my daughter was taught in Kae Kwon Do when they did some self defense classes, the first rule of thumb is avoidance in the f...

I like your thinking!

I use condensed milk in an amazing Mary Berry Cheesecake recipe. Scaping out the tin after using it is the best!!!

Over focussing on the obvious Medicine supplies

It occured to me when buying something from the pharmacy the other day that I have overlooked some general meds in my preps. Meds that I have in my first aid and household medicine box but not stocked up on. I have a separate prepping box with bandages, dressing and the like in, and a lockable preps...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 5.

Halfods were discounting winter car stuff, so I picked up a folding snow shovel for £5 - dunno what happened to my one I did have?! Checked car is topped with fuel, blankets, food etc incase I get caught out in this cold snap. All was in order but good to check. Been to my allotment again before the...

In our local army surplice shop, I picked up a hexe type stove and a tin D cup for a few quid into bung in the hold all that lives in the back of my car. I figured its a good idea to try it out first so I know how to use it and how it flames. hexe stove 3.jpg Yes it was somewhat windy that day and I...

Re: What i am prepping for and why.

In the uk, it is not really an option to bug out if the S hits the Fan for the vast majority of people. Unless you are bugging out to a friend or relative's house. I totally understand Diza about you wanting to be prepared, learning new skills and survival ways - that is definitely a good idea - apa...
