Re: Brexit in October?

To be fair, its a 'worst case' scenario, not a racing certainty. Easy to miss that bit, it doesn't get much mention in amongst all the plagues of locusts etc. None of us know what's going to happen, even the Government which is worrying in itself but it doesn't mean its all going to be 'as advertis...

Re: Eggsperiment

Joking aside,if you are using a dehydrated product,you will be fine.The only thing that may suffer is the nutritional value,and more importantly the product quality/ colour and general structure.

Re: Travel preps

I think it’s a case of ( if you want them) buying restricted items when you get there. Then chuck ‘em when you come home.

Re: Food in your emergency bag

I have never had the experience of eating an MRE. When I was a bootneck we ate the 24 hour rat packs, so it was pretty much what could be bought off the shelf back then.With lots of curry powder! It was 1980. Anyhow, my wife suggested I have a selection of fruit and nuts etc. Which I replace when ne...

Re: Food in your emergency bag

I like the pepperami idea. I now have a small hexi stove in my bag and a trangia mess tin and lid ( total weight WITH water is still only 10lb).There is room in the bag for a can or two.We are just nipping out to Home Bargains... Throw a cup in there and you're sorted for cup a soups and coffee too...

Invert before use.Top Tip! After using powder I am aware of the swift ' knock-down'. I also figured that the mess after a house fire ,caused by an ABC unit just has to be preferable to full-on fire damage.

Food in your emergency bag

Saturdays I do an 11 hour shift.Although I eat at work,it is frequently rushed and any old time.That means I always go home ravenous for grub! Yesterday the council/ highways agency decided to resurface a road that only just opened,and not only that one,but seemingly every other road nearby! This ca...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Interesting what you say about the powder Andy. When we tackled the car fire outside I dumped 3x1kg dry powder extinguishers under the bonnet, and that did the trick perfectly. The eldest of those had to be 12 years and the youngest 5. The gauges were on green, but I must admit that I was dubious wh...
