Bunker. Norfolk. £25k

Looks like a nice one.

Having just retired and collared a decent lump sum off the pension, I would buy this if it were near to me.

Re: BOB Multi Tool

First (and most important question), what's your budget, bearing in mind a MT for a BOB is likely to sit, unused, for months.

Re: Torch

Yep, those ones with the different levels of lighting and SOS/strobe button wind me up no end because I forget which one it’s set on. 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 ...

Re: Knife Sharpener

Being a bit of a knife nut, I have : Waterstones in various grits up to 8000 - very good but takes a while to learn Lansky guided sharpener - gives a good, razor sharp, polished edge. Easy to use. Worksharp electric sharpener - very easy to use but if not careful you can remove too much steel (I rou...

Re: Torch

In my pocket all the time is a jetbeam mk1, I run it with a 14500 but it also takes AA. In my EDC bag I have a small head torch (Nebo Rebel CR123) and a couple of spare batteries. In the car I have a Zebralight 18650 head torch and 3 or 4 spare batteries. In the GHB I have a cheapo AA. On my car FAK...

Bottom fill if pressure drops it will drain back into the main........
Mine is fed from a tank in the loft which fills off the main. Even if it feeds directly off the main if should have a non-return valve (stops potentially polluted water getting sucked into the main).

Re: Tin opener

When I go to Greece every tin I come across has a ring pull. They're starting to appear here more and more so I think tin openers will be a thing of the past (I'll still make sure I have a couple though).

Re: Where to live

I spent a week in rural Herefordshire last week. We were on a farm about 5 miles from the nearest shop and 15/20 miles from Hereford.
It's very sparsely populated (compared to the SE where I live) and property prices are very attractive.

Re: No water.

The immersion shouldn't burn out; hot water cylinders fill from the bottom so if the water runs dry it will still be full of water but there's no pressure to push it out of the top.

Re: Brexit in October?

It won't happen in October. The EU just had an election and is organising it's committees and suchlike for the next 5 years; this means that there's currently no-one for us to "just go and renegotiate" with until a new team is formed in November although I get the feeling that what they mean by "ren...
