Re: Torch

I carry 3 small ones in my pocket (1 USB charged, 1 AAA and one that takes LR44 batteries). I can carry 3 or 4 sets of spare batteries for the LR44 one and AAA's are everywhere so cover bases, the USB one because I also carry a small powerbank. The USB charged one is this..... https://www.amazon.co....

Re: My GHB

Nice one Jansman, its good to be able to help out and it sort of vindicates what we do. Enjoy the rest of your break.

Re: Tin opener

Like you I keep a P38 on my keys and carry a SAK. Reminds me of another incident when someone at work took a tin but not an opener . He asked the rest of us if anyone had one and I produced my p38 and handed it to him . Completely blank look on his face as he had never seen one before . I showed hi...

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

I can now see the back of my tins cupboard for the first time in a year. Soon as we have finished the last few tins then I'm going to fill it up again, for Brexit and for winter Found that pasta with sardines in (for hubby) and mushrooms & bacon in (for me) makes good cheap filling meals, so I'll g...

Re: Tin opener

We only seem to have the one 'proper' one, I've got a couple spare's stuck away somewhere but happy to use the one on my SAK(s) or the P38 type, I've got a fair few of them. Then there's the more agricultural methods, this one is interesting.

Re: Sometimes

Sometimes I have to admit defeat. With the recent hot weather carrying milk in a van has been more likely to see it go off by lunchtime. I mentioned to my wife that I would start taking powdered milk. She produced a tin from the pantry saying to use the oldest first . Made sense I thought . The mil...

Re: Feeding the masses

Culture plays a big part in this. The Hindu would not dream of eating beef, the Jew or Muslim pork. The ‘insect diet’ ain’t for this rural Englishman. Yup, we're brought up to eat certain things and turn our nose up at others. I've eaten all sorts 'just cos', even just to show off to mates when you...
