Re: Gadgets everywhere

Yeah, we've had a washing machine catch fire midway through a cycle. They're very heavy, however you also become instantaneously very strong as you end over end it out the back door :-)

Re: Metal detector

Thanks for the pointer CBP. I think I'm just going to accept the fact I'm going to lose some arrows. A 70lb compound bow shoots a looong way if you miss the target and from 75m away you have no idea where the arrow went

Re: Metal detector

Thanks Corvus, sadly all three, wood for the longbow, Ali for the recurve & carbon for the compound. The field belongs to the forestry so can't really go strimming it. Close range isn't an issue but stretching out the distance to 75m I'm missing quite a lot :-( You'll technically need permission fr...

Re: Metal detector

Not sure but I think the mesh in debris netting may be too big.
You can buy archery netting but it starts at ~£100 so torn between buying that or (and this is twisted logic and seems incredibly wasteful) just accepting losing some arrows & replacing them. £100 buys a lot of semi decent arrows.

Re: Storing diesel? Long term?

My tuppence worth - I keep 2*10 litre plastic cans of diesel, they usually sit for a year until I feel I should use them so put them in the car and refill. As for petrol I fill my motorbike at the start of winter and it sits until usually April/may time so maybe up to six months and always starts no...

Nice indeed. My veg patch crop has been pretty dismal this year.

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

Yes, bit suspicious that nowhere is the age demographic of positive tests being published.
I agree that its probably spreading around the working age group at ptesent and will work its way out into the more vulnerable in probably a short period of time.

Re: How ready are you?

Yeah. Things would have to be very very grim indeed to reach the point of bugging out. I wild camp year round and love it but it would be a utterly different story to survive in the "wilderness" (if there is such a thing in the UK) with the family in tow (capable & also very experienced wild campers...

Re: Interesting article on continuing flour shortages.

In fact I've just re-read it and think its largely scaremongering and other than stating its from a leaked document can't verify their sources.
