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

FIRST AID; We are lucky to have a member at one of our ranges who is a recently retired paramedic. He gave us a basic oversight on the use of Celox [clotting agent] that his staff received in London and home counties to deal with stabbing and shooting incidents. Good knowledge if you can get it. SE...

Re: Brexit in October?

So. Everyone is pig sick of Brexit and the cartoon characters dealing with it and frankly ,I am beyond caring now. At the beginning of the year it really did look as though we may have to endure shortages etc. and (if?) it happens this year we may still. Like many of us, I stocked up on items I con...

Re: Where to live

Hi Edward and welcome. :D
What is your family set up? Single? Partner/married? Kids? Age range?
Do you have any skills yet for living an off grid life?
Look forward to hearing more.

Re: No water.

We have had low water pressure for 2 days now. Shower wouldn’t work for one thing! Then this morning: No water. Whole area out. No problem here though. Made sure the daughters had a 25 litre barrel each to be going on with. Turned the immersion heater off so it didn’t burn out. It has now come back...

Re: Feeding the masses

This country thinks it can feed itself? Maybe, if every scrap of ground was utilised, and the country was accepting of a restricted diet. We need to look at the Cuban Special Period perhaps? Plus modern research and re-education https://www.geek.com/gadgets/grow-your-own-insects-at-home-then-eat-th...

Re: Feeding the masses

Brings to mind the whole "Survival is insufficient" idea. What about the quality of life?

Re: Brexit in October?

So many "other" global scale events (Take your pick from a long list) seem to have come forward since the 2016 Brexit vote, yet we keep getting the same old MSM rubbish fed to us everyday in the UK. What if one or more of these "other" events take hold? Would that be a sufficient excuse to delay or ...

Re: Feeding the masses

"Regarding landscape and acres of polytunnels, it is possible that in the interests of food security that could be the U.K. soon. We have a government that tells us we have to reduce carbon footprint, so that’s food miles then? That could be the feeding of the masses in reality." We have been tryin...

Re: Feeding the masses

"Going back to the scenario I can't see a sudden event causing tens of thousand if not millions requiring feeding but I could see more and more people requiring help over a period of time , perhaps after a global economic crash . We've already seen food banks open and their use increase over a rela...
