Re: The New Veg on the block

Never come across it. V interested to find out though! Deliberate ??? :lol: Fascinating! So fascinating I went to the Asda website to see it in closeup :oops: It sounds like the texture is brilliant (and that's not nothing in terms of veggie food) but as a sub for meat and fish etc, it's slightly d...

The New Veg on the block

Back home and a bit of research suggests ...

Re: Food in your emergency bag

Lots of grains-in-pouches, fruit-in-pouches purees, and so on around, can be eaten cold. Cans of coffee. Peperami or kabanos. Fruit bars. Tins of rice pudding. Dehydrated fruit. Bags of nuts. GORP. One thing to bear in mind with the fruit purees and other high fibre stuff is that if your body isn't...

Re: Brexit in October?

It's not the worst case, it's the baseline planning assumptions. The document was leaked a month ago with the title "HMG Planning Assumptions - Base Scenario". They just changed this to "Reasonable Worst Case Planning Scenario" on Monday. The content is the same. They are lying to us. Not the case....

Re: Brexit in October?

I check the Daily Wail every day, and their Brexit article actually had prints of the Yellowhammer document, which was unusually precise for them :mrgreen: so I decided to find my own copy :mrgreen: The government website doesn't make it easy. I searched Operation Yellowhammer on the govt home page...

Re: Travel preps

I think it’s a case of ( if you want them) buying restricted items when you get there. Then chuck ‘em when you come home. Or post them to yourself if they've valuable enough. They seem to have relaxed the rules around blades, seems you can take a penknife if its under 6cm. I have a SAK classic on m...

Re: Food in your emergency bag

I have a plastic cup in there. I have shoved in tea bags, dried soup ,pepperami, and a microwave vegetable rice, which I could boil in the bag to warm it up. As Arzosah says, it IS an individual thing. It’s not something that was at the top of my list until yesterday, when I wanted some halfway dec...

Well done korolev! A lot of regular travellers seem to make do with carry on only - as I travel more, I'm definitely going to do the same.
The problem with only hand luggage is you're limited to what you can take. I even had a wallet ninja confiscated as they're no longer allowed.
