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

Arranged a few emergency wind related repairs at Mums place today (fallen TV Ariel and broken gate) and then home for more canning. Picked up another 48 (500ml) mason jars from the bargain store, brilliant value at 54 pence each. You can't buy the replacement lid seals on their own for much less. 8-...

Re: Cat Tourniquet and Celox

That's the stuff.

I think it was the price (@£25) per syringe that got people on YouTube looking at how they could load their own more cheaply.

Good stuff for deep puncture wounds if you know what you are doing with it.

Re: what does the forum think.

Perhaps consider getting a decent water filter system so you dont need to store quite as much in bulk, assuming you could find a water source supply somewhere nearby. Four months is a good start, but if you are thinking EOTWAWKI scenarios, then building that up to a lot more, in small stages, would ...

Re: Things just got real.

It must have come as a shock korolev, but your financial planning and foresight show you to be a good prepper, so hats off to you. Like some others above, I was able to to give up "paid" work at an early age and have never looked back, best thing I [we] ever did. Given that global economies are tank...

Re: Cat Tourniquet and Celox

The Youtube video I've been looking for has been taken down for some reason???? :tinfoil It showed how to divide up Celox 15g granular packs into syringes of 5gm loads, suitable / ideal for use on deep entry wounds, such as knife or gunshot penetrations, rather than open cut wounds or lacerations, w...

Re: introduction

Hi Mike welcome to the forum. It's good to know I'm not the only 70 year old on the sight. You live in rural north east Scotland and have your bug out bags ready? I suspect many others would think you're already in one of the best bug out locations in the whole of the UK. :) Regards, Panther Thumbs...

I know it can be inconvenient and probably irritating on a personal level but with the climatic problems we have and a supposed plan to reduce carbon emissions I don't see a potential contraction of air travel as that much off a bad thing really..

Re: Very Handy Medical Book.

The power of the mind is the one for me. I've been learning to meditate for a few years now, aiming to help in reducing stress / relaxation towards pain control. A couple of five or ten minutes sessions most days seems to help me.

Re: Very Handy Medical Book.

Not sure if im off topic here or not, but a few years back Mrs A had a very itchy / flaky scalp that wouldn't clear up despite what the doctors told her to buy and use. Ended up she went to a Chinese medicinal shop and came out with bag of what I can only describe as old leaves, twigs and other stuf...
