Re: Boil in the bags meals

They needed something with them, I used to have rice with the chilli and instant mash with the other one I could get, can't remember what it was though.

Re: Boil in the bags meals

Used to be able to get those in poundland but they have stopped doing them now sadly. I quite like the chilli.

Re: Ration Challenge

Good job one can still use ones Aga and Le Creuset to cook it on, my Semillon says it will pair nicely with a Cabernet Sauvignon... :roll: I'm not sure the motorised rotisserie in my range will be a lot of use, but at least I'll be able to eat it off the good china. Regarding the vegetarian and veg...

Re: Spectacles

I have a pair of pince nez reading glasses in pretty much every one of my jacket or bag pockets, usually means that I have more than one pair with me at any given time. They don't cost much or take up much space but they do make me look like an extra from Poirot. Means I can read a menu though, I ne...

Re: 50 year old tinned Ox Tongue anyone???

I watched that the other day when he posted it. I have a pretty strong stomach but that was grim, actually worse than the whole chicken in a can video that he did... I am a fan of offal generally though, not tongues but I do like liver, I popped into waitrose on my way home and there was a lady on t...

Re: Butt treatment

I have little catcher things to stop any big grot getting into the butts. At the end of the day I'm going to filter it if I need to drink it so it'll be safe, just might taste a bit odd.

Re: Butt treatment

That's for that, useful info. Looks like the treatment I use is fine then, I'll try the bleach and see if that works as well before buying my next lot though as the bleach will be a lot cheaper. Good to know that I would be able to use the water I have though, I have 850l when they're all full and t...

Butt treatment

Excuse me amusing myself with the thread title, just wondering what everyone on here uses to keep the water in their rainwater butts from growing too much algae and going stagnant. I presently use hozelock water butt treatment which works really well for the aforementioned aims, but I have absolutel...

Re: Keeping unfrozen water in the car

I have liferaft ration water packs in my car kit, they have the water in small sachets with enough space to allow for freezing. I used to drive a pickup with a canopy on the back and they never leaked. Expensive way of carrying water but they last a few years so for convenience I think it's worth it...
