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

Some things you can't really solve by prepping.. like lifting a heavy ashcan with a really awkward handle, or getting a bucket of coal up 4 steps with a dodgy hip. Having to fill the stove little and often instead of 2 big fills. Then things were not helped by a power cut early on this morning in t...

Every Lidl helps!
Sorry, had to get that in. :D

Nicely played.

Unfortunately we don't have a Lidl nearby, 3 Aldi's right enough.

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

Been having a clear out of redundant prep-gear. Got a few paraffin lamps (not compatible with our health problems) and the Norfolk lidded-bucket mountain to rehome. Also going to flog the pushbike as I haven't ridden it for over a year. I have to wheel it the length of the garden, then carry it thr...

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

Major revamp in this house this week. Husband went in for an angiogram on Thurs as his angina recently got very bad.

Re: My GHB

And don't forget the Bergen itself, feet in and pull as high as possible, another layer to trap warmth. That would be a big ol' GHB though mate, not that I disagree with you though. I've got a cheap and compact bivvy bag in my set up, not that I'd use it in the the warmer months unless it was raini...

Re: My GHB

Another option for a temporary shelter is the BIG rucksack covers. I've got something like this for my 110L bergen and its big enough to crawl into if you need to. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rucksack-Rain-Army-Waterproof-Bag-Military-Back-Pack-Cover-Backpack-Combat-Green/360656741102?ssPageName=STRK...

Re: My GHB

No sleeping bag? Might be a luxury but the little 2 season aldi down bag plus the thermal liner I got this liner for £5 the other week :mrgreen: (off back Saturday for more now I've seen the price) https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sea-Summit-Thermolite-Reactor-Sleeping/dp/B003BIT004/ref=mp_s_a_1_11?dchild=...
