Re: UK running short of surgical and dust masks.

I went for the usual hep B protection top up (I need it for the line of work I’m in) last year in September to be told I couldn’t have it as there was a national shortage due to brexit. I was so upset :evil: So it doesn’t surprise me that we are running out of basics tbh, with it be due to “brexit” ...

Re: Bug Out Boat

Right this is NOT the right link then. My apologies i was in a rush this morning, I’ve tried finding it but I can’t so I will need to resend the link when I get home. Basically this link was awesome as it showed you the recorded historical flooding sometimes going back 75-100 years as there is often...

Re: Bug Out Boat

To be fair to them, where we live we aren't on a flood plain. but mostly everywhere surrounding us was flooding. I was more using it for an an excuse to get a canoe and it did nae work. :cry: To determine risky areas to buy/build a house we used this link in college: http://map.sepa.org.uk/floodmap/...

Re: Bug Out Boat

If I spend a lot of money on a boat I want the one in Alaska that’s made out of a special plastic that can jump fallen trees and if it gets grounded you can just push it out yourself.
