Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Its all too easy to suffer from prepper fatigue folks.

IT (Insert your preferred flavour of SHTF here) has been building up for quite a while now and the suspense is literally killing some people.

It can be hard to switch off and chill out sometimes.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

We noticed a spike in what I call “freezer filling” internet orders today at work. The actual footfall was a lot lower too - and proper social distancing was more evident. Thanks for the heads up. Funny how I just can't feel satisfied even with 4 chock full smallish freezers. I could happily buy an...

Hi Dave and welcome to the forum.
We were all newbies once so I'm sure you will find your feet pretty quickly, we are a pretty good bunch overall. :lol:

Re: Landrover bug out vehicle.

We've had a few landies in our time but are getting too old for the bone shakers these days. We are on the look out for a 4x4 at the moment to replace our Skoda Superb estate so you never know....

Keep us up to date with the project and maybe post a photo now and again just to make us all envious.

Re: Batteries

We've been using AA and AAA rechargeable batteries from poundland for several years without any problems whatsoever. The brand names tend to change (currently Kodak) but haven't let us down yet and you get a decent quantity for your money. I think Ive had one AAA go bad in maybe three years.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Went to the hairdressers for a trim yesterday. After leaving it too long and then going into lockdown last time I am going to keep on top of it from now on. After reading the news and cases rising I decided to forgo the trim and just went for the full lockdown special :) I am now officially the fam...

Re: Power tools

I've ended up with a really mixed power tool bag built up over the years. Makita used to be our go-to choice but that changed to DeWalt some years ago, except for the flip over saws which we reckon are better built quality from Elu. We do have a large Bosch SDS-Max drill / breaker which has stood th...

Laid up the caravan for the winter, drained down fluids, jacked up on stands with wheels off, trickle vents open, cover will go on next week once im sure I haven't forgotten anything. (Now sitting depressed with beer in hand)
