Re: introduction

Hi Mike welcome to the forum. It's good to know I'm not the only 70 year old on the sight. You live in rural north east Scotland and have your bug out bags ready? I suspect many others would think you're already in one of the best bug out locations in the whole of the UK. :)
Regards, Panther

Re: Hello from Essex

Hi there prepfungus, Welcome to the forum. You've already taken the first, most important step in realizing there could be problems sometime in the future and deciding not to leave your fate in the hands of others but to become self-reliant. Unfortunately it's not a case of "if our system collapses"...

Re: Suggestions

Try "Last Light" by Alex Scarrow

Also the follow up "Afterlight" by the same author.

I've read them both, they're a good read, the first one being the better of the two.

Re: Keeping unfrozen water in the car

I always keep a 2 litre bottle of water in the boot of the car. So far it hasn't frozen even in the coldest of weathers.
Well, that's done it; it's bound to happen now I've said that. :!: ;)

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

Over the last year, due to illness, and "having builders in" my attention has been on other things and so stocks of food, fuel etc. have been woefully neglected. With the start of a new year, and illness hopefully well behind me, it is now time to put my energies into rectifying the situation and re...

Re: Inflatable concrete Shelters.

Oh how attractive! No one will notice that at the bottom of our garden will they? I'll tell them it's the latest thing in summerhouses. :lol:

Re: Pets Food

It's surprising how many of our pets need specialist drugs and/or food these days. :( Yes; funny that, back in the 50's and 60's (yes I am that old!) we only ever took the dog to the vet for a distemper injection, nothing else. I don't think the cats ever received any vet treatment, just the occasi...

Re: Hidden retreat?

Going down into confined, flooded, dark underground spaces is definitely not for me, not out of choice anyway until im cold in a box. Can't cope with the feeling of claustrophobia. Good on those that do though as it has to be a pretty good Bug-Out space. :lol: To me a good "Hidden Retreat" or BOL i...

Re: Hidden retreat?

Re: Hidden retreat?

To be honest, if you were going to go to that sort of lengths to get a secret underground bunker, you might as well just go and buy a secret underground bunker. Yes, there are many old ROC bunkers left over from the cold war in my part of the country; they come up for sale every now and then. I kno...
