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

Don't get me wrong, I've been in and out of date for years at level 2 and feel fairly competent, pressure on wounds, lots off. I'd probably break a few ribs keeping the juices flowing too, I'm just not insured. Also the medical types keep changing their mind on CPR/compressions etc... I just feel it...

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

Just got back from work. What a day! At 6am I was performing CPR on a chap who had collapsed and stopped breathing in the restaurant. It was surreal! Thank heavens he started breathing on his own just as the medics arrived. The odds of these events happening are high though, as we have a thousand +...

Re: Augmenting the stash: Pesto etc.

One thing I'm going to stock more of now is tinned fruit: while my kitchen was being fitted, the best/easiest treat I could find for myself was tinned fruit: pineapples, peaches, apples, things like that. Is it just me or does anyone else think tinned fruit tastes best straight from the tin ? Yup, ...

I'm another one in agreement with Jenny, why prep to survive when you can prep to live well.

Re: Stash in a flat garage roof

That space might still be useable for some things, Indeed it will be. If nothing else, I can relocate my lifetime stash of cleaning products, fire making and cooking kit, bulky survival hardware, etc. That will liberate more food friendly shelves and cupboards for the beans. More space is more spac...

Re: Prepping kids

Not sure what you consider SHTF but Andy's suggestions would be more along the line of practical 'prepping' for kids. Keeping kids amused is half the battle so if there's no lecky have you got other toys, books etc. Basic first aid and where you keep some important bits and bobs could be handy too, ...

Re: My EDC bag. A brief tour on how i started and where i'm

I have one suggestion, don't know what you carry food wise, saw the energy tablets, I carry those too, but I would also say to chuck in a couple of protein bars, they give you energy but it's not all from sugar so it lasts a bit longer. I did start carrying some cheap (yet oh so tasty) cereal bars....

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

Peace of mind HAS to be the most underrated human state.In my case,stress is generally work related ( I had to put a manager's hat on all of last week :( ).Family stuff is always there,and is dealt with accordingly. The big stuff,like asteroid strikes and economic collapse,don't even get a look-in ...

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

I don't do stress. Not worth the hassle as everything sorts itself out anyway :mrgreen: Easier said than done sometimes Lil, I'm generally laid back but still find myself betting 'stressed' mostly over stupid or minor things but its still stress. My missus is a born worrier though, that's just anot...

Re: Afternoon!

Welcome, its never too late to start, you just need to figure what your personal priorities are and work towards addressing them. You have to bare in mind you'll be unlikely to cover everything so just do what you can.
