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

We've started allotment/growing preps too, Her Maj has been doing her thang with seeds. My main prep this month and year is to sit on my hands and not buy any more prepping or camping gear, the credit card has crept up so needs dealt with. I am actually getting rid of stuff. Do I really need three ...

Cutting tools don’t give a second chance. I have had fellow butchers with a Macho attitude take the p*ss because I wear a chainmail glove! 20 years ago I cut through the tendons on my hand with a12” steak knife. Put me out of the game for about three months. We nearly lost our home.

Wear safety kit.

I am with Yorkshire Andy on that one. Proper gloves, a helmet/ screen and ear defenders are a must at a minimum. I have a petrol chainsaw,and a Titan too! For those quick- can’t be- arsed -to- get -the - petrol- kit -out.- moments.

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

My son in law was in a car collision on Saturday. His younger brother ( a new driver) was T-Boned at a junction. FORTUNATELY he had a dash- cam, and the footage proves beyond all doubt that in no way, was he at fault. Heaven knows his insurance is dear enough! As good luck would have it,my lovely wi...

I always pay my way. ;) Being a freeloading tightwad is not a good attribute imo. It was lucky your lady was equipped with an extinguisher.

Re: Throw away society and EDC kit

We had an indesit washing machine some years ago. Expensive too. Literally one day out of warranty, a £1 switch went wrong. £70 call out! The engineer advised us to buy the cheapest machine, burn it out, and buy another. It’s what we do now.
