Re: Getting organised

Chances are you have a lot more time than you think, but the basics are always important ...... Food, Water, shelter. dependin...

Re: BOB/GHB clothing for Britain.

Me too, Shocker, me too. Wool underlayer (Endicotts do a dirt-cheap Italian undershirt, I have several and they are very good, no connection etc.) then fleece layers to take off/put on. I've gone off wool jumpers, I have a couple but rarely wear them anymore as even cheap fleece is so good now. All...

Re: Prepping, relocation and moral dilemmas

It both scares the crap out of me and saddens me at the same time that we're still that pace or two from evolving past the 'tribal thing'.
