Its not football but the next best thing. :D At danger of going seriously o...

Re: Hey from fife Scotland!

Absolutely mate. I can enjoy aspects of it, more the making and building things side of things. Don’t enjoy buying and storing things, it’s a task I feel I should do. Don’t particularly dislike it either though. You are also right it isn’t a competition, and if it was I would lose, plenty people out...

Re: Hey from fife Scotland!

Funny you mention that, I’ve done a bit of research on that recently and was thinking of starting a thread asking who does this now or seeing if similar thread exists.

I’m not into being prepared because I enjoy it like some of you no doubt are. I’m in this gig because one day I think it might be necessary. Mrs will prob...

Re: Bolt cutters or?

Bugging out is my worst case scenario, last option and would involve hiking about 20 miles or so to a family members house. My fiancé has her own bob too. Even my dog has a bob, she has a backpack with her food packed in it and she wears it quite happily. Consider the situation of an EMP then my hou...

Re: WW3 - logic

Bio diesel

Has anyone here ever tried making bio diesel or ethanol fuel to power their car or genny?

I feel for sustainability post society this would be an invaluable skill.
