Fire lighting.

Now, this may get light heartedly controversial but its something I've always wondered about - why bother taking Maya dust, tinder, magnesium rods etc etc when if you're going prepared why not just take a box of firelighters? Dont get me wrong - the skill, knowledge & ability to light a fire from sc...

In a similar vein you have the homemade 'can stoves' although I've always viewed these as a good to know how rather than a 'go to'.

Agree about the tin can stoves, though I do now insist on only getting golden syrup from lidls and not tescos because its in lovely retro cans in Lidls!

Re: Hello from Berkshire

Personally I suspect the whole brexit thing will be a bit of a damp squib however keeping a bit of cash in the house in various sized notes is always handy (if you manage to keep it for emergencies, which I struggle with!) I also keep a few half bottles of whisky & vodka as I've found them to be ver...

Hi Bosworth, all views are welcome, what are you prepping for? Are you more down the line of expecting complete imminent societal collapse?

Diesel storage

Hi all, looking for some advice on diesel storage - I would like to store a few gallons for use in the cars if supply gets disrupted. I have two 10litre plastic jerry cans. My dilemma is- I have a brand spanking new car and I'm led to believe that modern diesels are more "sensitive" to fuel quality ...

Re: No matter how isolated your bug out property is isn't someone eventually going to come knocking?

Bugging out to a boat is a lovely idea (i even lived on a boat in between girlfriends when I had hair) but as I think we're all agreed - a flight of imagination. Even now modern piracy is a problem so just imagine how bad that would get in a real SHTF scenario. But a nice thought, I'm off to look eB...
