Re: Rotating emergency food stocks

I had a tidy at the weekend & pulled out a 6-pack of UHT that I already knew would be out of date but hadn't got around to shifting (we don't really use it but I'd rather have some & chuck it when out of date than get caught short, even though I have a bit of powdered as well. I think I'll open the ...

Re: 'manufactured' emergency food packs

I've bought some of their sample packs (individual servings in pouches with 7yr shelf life). So far I've tried the scrambled eggs & chilli concarne. The chilli was actually quite tasty though in future I'd send to under-fit the water & add more later if needs be, easier than the other way around. Th...

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

Worth me pointing out that I have a motorbike in the garage that I haven't had the chance to take out for 2yrs, decided to get it MOT'd just before winter and it started up (and ran) first time no problems on it's 2yr old tank of petrol (which was pretty full) so it isn't quite so cut & shut perhaps.

Re: Keeping unfrozen water in the car

I just remembered what it was that was on my mind about it in the first place - last winter I had a Water-to-Go bottle half-full in the cup holder & it froze, knackering the filter. Obviously a much smaller volume of water is easier to freeze but I knew there was a reason it was on my mind...

Keeping unfrozen water in the car

What's the consensus on keeping something like 2L or 5L bottles of water in a liquid state in the car boot during a significant cold snap? Would storing it in a closed cool-box be sufficient d'ya think? If it got stupidly cold I could even always throw a single hand-warmer in there but I think we'd ...

Re: Knowing your area.

I'm going to be getting rid of some bricks myself soon. I've been kidding myself that I should hang onto them but really can't justify it (maybe a dozen or so to make a small rocket stove at a push). Now I've decided to get rid, I'm now procrastinating over whether I should pay someone to take 'em o...

Awesome! I will be getting some repair glue in the next couple months once my shoes get to the point they probably need it.
Being a prepper wouldn't you get some to keep ready /before/ you need it? :lol:

Re: Stocking up.

I still can't get the OH to buy more than a 9-pack of toilet rolls at a time, and that barely lasts a week in this house! (I'm not counting the stash in the loft ;-) )Drives me mad when I get the text to pick some up on the way home cos we've run out :x
