In...

Re: Hello from Hampshire

Hi Daniel, Welcome to the forum. You'll find many people on this sight are in a similar position to you in that their spouse, relations or neighbours think they're potty, eccentric or insane in prepping. I think most of us here will tell you that in such an uncertain world the ones who are insane ar...

Re: Exercising at Home

If you really want a blast form the past try 5BX In the 1950's the Canadian airforce realised their pilots were unfit and wanted to do something about it. The plan was in part driven by the fact a Canadian Airforce base in winter...

Re: Emergency home lighting

My approach to emergency lighting relies on both modern and old technologies. We have rechargeable torches around the house which turn on if there's a power failure. I also have several torches (I love buying torches, you can never have too many.) :) Over the years we have also collected antique bra...

Re: Audiobooks or reading?

It's real books for me every time. For a start there's something special in just being able to pick up the book and hold it in your hands, look at the loose cover, open it, check when it was first published and how many times it's been reprinted. Then there's often information about the author on th...

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

Then there's torches, batteries....... I think I need to see nurse for my tablets. Ah, torches, one can never have enough torches. :) I keep looking on the Olight Torches site at the X9R Marauder.

Re: Bunker. Norfolk. £25k

If a ROC bunker is your idea of having a safe, secure BOL then great. Having previously lived in Brundall for ten years I can confirm it and nearby Strumpshaw are pleasant places to live; also the bunker price seems very reasonable to me (not that I can afford it!)
