Re: camping

Scotland has a right to roam and camp within reason, but they wont make you too welcome at the moment. Dartmoor has implied right to camp wild in its bylaws, if you don't mind the solders training around you. On facebook there is lots of wild camping groups who have lots of suggestions. I have wild ...

Re: Exhaust fan for attic.

I would also invest in insulation to prevent the heat getting into the loft. Foil lined insulation under the tiles will reduce lots of heat in summer and keep you warmer in winter. I would be a bit concerned about raising the humidity of your loft if you tap into your bathroom vent. That will be car...

Re: Empty Water Containers

Could I just suggest working out how far you all live from running water supplies? I live 2min walk from a stream/river. I would avoid none moving water(lakes) if possible but I would strongly encourage people to think about their surroundings, there is no point stockpiling 1000's of gallons if you ...

Re: Difficult to make, useful, but currently very cheap

I am currently storing boxes of electronic parts, they are very cheap and come in large quantities. Should China stop shipping, things like resistors, capasitors, diodes or leds etc will become extremely expensive. If you do not know how to use them, having a electronic spares box with a soldering i...

Re: seeds

Id recommend real seeds but some one already has, they actually have a section on prepping seeds discouraging it for the reasons Jansman mentioned. Id suggest you get allotments, waiting lists are long at the moment but you will learn so much from the older wiser hands who have done this for many ye...

Re: 2020 Potential Economic Collapse

The pension money I have is in three little pots - it only totals about £60k, which I realise is a lot of money but its a tiddler in pension terms - its too small for some firms to even look at, even as a total. What I'm wondering about right now is what I can buy thats useful in prepping terms, wi...

Re: conversation with partner

Soap can be cut into small lightweight pieces and you can buy camping flannels that are small, lightweight and quick drying. Just remember how many people died in WW1 from trench foot for other diseases which good hygine would have helped with. As always with prepping dont just think it, buy it but ...

Re: 2nd wave preps

Our local asda is running low again, our neighbours are all saying another local down is coming, schools will not return etc. They are driving our to all of the shops in turn for very large shops... I'd say we are climbing the silly curve again. Glad I have been topping up from the beginning, I don'...

Re: Vacuum packing and long term storage.

I dehyrade and vacuum seal but I don't use oxygen abzorbers, but I do double bag, I vacuum seal into the plastic bags then I store them inside mylar bags. The mylar bags cut out uv light to help it last longer and it also prevents food spells spoiling nearby goods. An example would be I dehydrate 9 ...
