Re: what are the best multi vitamins to take and stock

I’m also a pharmacist, genuinely I’d not bother with expensive stuff. General multivit with iron will be more than sufficient. And plenty of rehydration sachets!!! Interesting Welshwiz11, I know a few pharmacist preppers! Considering I barely know any preppers at all, there must be a link? Are we g...

Re: Low-level newbie

Forgot to add:

There is a post on the Food, Nutrition and Agriculture board called "What are you dehydrating?" - it's 50 pages long so loads of ideas there for us when our ones arrive!

Welcome to the site, it's really lovely here.

Re: Prepping for long drive with toddler

Hello all, I'm back from my trip. Thank you all for your suggestions, they really did help. What will I do differently next time? I'll take the spare car key. The door locked (don't know exactly how, on his dad's watch) with the key and 2 year old inside! We needed to get my son out quickly so we ha...

I see a lot of (multivitamin for adults) and (multivitamin for kids). Also calcium+vitD tabs, vitami...

Re: Prepping for long drive with toddler

Re: Prepping for long drive with toddler

Hmmm ok - so breakdown cover seems to be a priority then. I guess I knew that deep down or I wouldn't have thought to mention it. I don't have a lot of £ to spend so will try to find a good deal.

I've not driven further than 200 miles before. I've packed stuff we'll need while we're there - clothes mainly, including jackets, walking boots,...
