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

That's a good prep Deeps, you're keeping yourself fit and well, getting out there. I feel very fedup that I've been stuck on a recliner for most of the past 4 weeks. I get out and about 1 day then am comatose for 3. But still prepping, getting stuff online and filling up space on shelves :mrgreen: ...

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

Speaking of dehydrating, I bought a fair whack of onions to get done, seeing as how its a day of rest (and watching football and drinking beer :D ) I'll get on it tomorrow... Apart from that, Her Maj has been doing her seeds and stuff and we've bought a cold frame for the garden, hopefully it will g...

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

Well done, you've got the bug anyway. :lol: I've found with things that don't dry as quick as you'd like, just dry them some more. Aye. lemon juice is good with fruit and I'll be trying the oranges, they sound right up my boulevard. Have you tried dehydrating meals yet ???

Re: Fire lighting.

its one of my greatest weaknesses, once i gave up smoking the huge amount of lighters i had spread every where disappeared, its now a physical effort to remember them in kit Don't know if something like this would be of any use to you mate. https://www.amazon.co.uk/True-Utility-FireStash-Waterproof...

Re: Fire lighting.

I'm with you on it, my primary method of lighting a fire is....... a lighter. In my 'fire kit' I've got stormproof matches, tampons, vaselined eye pads etc and shock horror... no birch bark. I do have a ferro rod and a pencil sharpener right enough. I enjoy 'playing' at fires but if I'm out walking ...

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

Stocked up on cat kibble and litter as I use Zooplus and think that's a German company. It is Lil, we've (well Her Maj) shopped around and actually found a UK seller who does our dug food cheaper, still to find the coo's lugs and bull's dicks that they have for their lunch cheaper or even close to ...

Re: Reasonably fit 70 year old

So many factors, I tend to pack the kitchen sink (literally sometimes, a collapsible one, doubles up as a dug bowl amongst other things) and can do a good distance on the flat. Throw some hills in and the weight catches up, duration of your expected 'trip' also plays a part, its just one of those th...
