Re: Face shields

Right at the start my local shop issued all of its staff with their own filter mask ( they are marked so I know its not the same three masks being passed around). They now have a screen around the till but none of the staff remove their masks at all while in front of house. On the other hand, the cu...

Re: U.K. Prepper Weaponry ?

I'll just add that using bows or crossbows for hunting is illegal in this country.

I hope that none of the members on here have posted such images.

Re: Would You Consider Joining A Prepper Inspired Community?

Following on and also (I think) back on topic.

Re: What are you harvesting?

We found that we have 2 of us unable to eat eggs, 3 unable to eat potatoes, 3 unable to eat corn/maize/cornstarch and none of us are OK with wheat. Chicken and beef are also out but dairy is fine. It was a shock to see the real impact of common goods on our health. It has made for an interesting wo...

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

A couple of those mention UV sterilization...E.g "Perhaps the most straightforward disinfection technique is using a UV sterilisation system." Surely, boiling would be pretty simple too! OK. Chemicals might be an issue, but not with water butt harvested rain or hot tub harvested rain. [/quote] Sadl...
