Re: Toilet roll vs baby wipes

Great comments about this. I'm doing both, but having the wipes as easy to transport if we decide to move out of the house. I may bury some water bottles in the woods. At 17p for 2L it doesn't matter if I forget where they are...lol

Toilet roll vs baby wipes

Just throwing this one out there. Which would you stock. Debating if the baby wipes is the way to go as they are/seem more compact. Only real negativity is that you can't flush them. What do people think ?

Re: Keeping unfrozen water in the car

I bought the Voss water in a plastic bottle from Tesco in the meal deal. We opened the bottles and squeezed about half the air out and stuck them in the freezer. We then put them in the car for our trip in Europe. We arrive there almost 24 hours later and there was some ice in the unused bottles. Th...

Re: Storage query

I would be more inclined to put a man hole cover.https://www.diy.com/departments/clark-5t-manhole-cover-with-frame/35640_BQ.prd/gallery for example over a large plastic barrel with a screw lid. I got one once on Ebay for example. That way if you have to leave the house, you could possibly get back a...

Re: Hidden retreat?

Buy a field you can have a horse and stable on. Build the stable with a spare room. You could try renting out the field to someone with a horse. To help paying a loan if you take one. You could keep the use of the room for storage or as a start point if you wanted to tunnel. You could then drive a c...

Re: Prepping for long drive with toddler

Fords keyless cars won't lock if the key is in the car or the engine is running. It's nice, but the off set is in the winter. You can't start the car and lock with 2nd set of keys to warm up.

Re: Passports - what can I do?

If the child has 2nd passport, then "traveling across Europe" in that sort of direction would reduce questions. We see it when at Euro tunnel. We spend less time at passport control than others

Re: Prepping for long drive with toddler

A car driving on main roads is less likely to breakdown as your not pulling away, gearing up, breaking and gearing down. Returned from a 1,200 mile each way trip across Europe last week. UK, FR, B, NL, D, A, SOL, H, and HR ( Number plate codes of countrys). DVD player does the job. You may find adju...
