Re: Travel preps

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.

Re: Travel preps

It's actually the second time it's happened to us, same airline and apartments too ! The first time wasn't so bad as we had two cases and had split everything between the two. We only took one this time but I reckon we can get it down to just carry-ons; I'll have to forego taking a leatherman and th...

Re: Bunker. Norfolk. £25k

Have never understood why anyone would want a big hole in the ground. Can you imagine after shtf there are 10000 people parked above your head all around your entrance. Will do your head in wondering when they will find a way in. After all they have nothing better to do than talk about how to get a...

So when I go out in the garden of a night time to fight off he invading slugs from my veg patch it strobes and I look like a right wally. If you can use a soldering ...
