Re: Bush craft knife

You already have the best bushcraft knife that you're going to get for less than 50 quid, my advice if you want something a bit more flash is save up bit and have a look at the TBS Boar. Made by the bushcraft store, I used one of their blade blanks to make my own, my handle is custom but the blade i...

Re: Water

2 water butts or even more. You can set them up so they overflow into each other if you have the space. I got mine subsidised by the local water company, have a look on the website for your one as that's where I found the link, they were pretty much half price, and you will probably find that your l...

Re: Long-Term Food

I'd say more like a vesta curry or chow mein than a pot noodle. (Suspect I'm showing my age a bit here!) They'll do if you don't have the space to store normal food that has a long shelf life, but I personally wouldn't want to eat them for more than a week, I used to take them hiking, (I make my own...

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

I'm drying some more veg, got a couple of bags of carrots on the go. Have discovered that the trays from my old dehydrator also fit the new one, which is nice, so now I have ten trays, I can't imagine that if I stack ten up it'll dry very efficiently but I reckon I could probably get away with seven...

Re: Antihistamine alternatives

My mrs suffers very badly with hayfever, I get it too, but only from the tree pollen so it doesn't last that long. She has a spoonful of local honey every morning, that means she only has to take 1 antihistamine rather than multiple ones, can't be 100% sure it does anything as we haven't done a doub...

Re: Exercising at Home

I don't need an instructional video for circuit training, I remember it very well, if I recall it went something like this:

Press ups,
Burpees.
Sit ups,
Kettle bell,
Chin ups,
Puke,

Then repeat until you wake up in an ambulance.

Re: Disposal of waste....

Urine will deter foxes, only men's urine though, sets off their territorial warnings, can't imagine rats will care though.

Re: Home Security Upgrades

I may have just done some moving around of things in lockable metal cabinets.

My alarm and CCTV deters most scallies, my locks and spiky shrubs the rest, but it doesn't hurt to have a plan C.

Re: Disposal of waste....

Find your nearest student HMO, dump your rubbish in their front garden, they won't notice the difference if the ones near here are anything to go by. Being sensible, burning it is probably the only viable option otherwise it will attract animals, then burying the leftovers, could only keep that goin...
