Re: Prepping, relocation and moral dilemmas

I know this might be a really contentious statement ... but I'd be very doubtful about relocating for self sufficiency in troubled times if the location was far away from my own ethnicity, *whatever* my ethnicity was :oops: I don't mean it as a gibe at any *one* ethnicity - its just that whenever r...

Re: How I'm prepping

nice post, brutally honest and to the point. looks like you know where your preps are weak already and have a plan in action to remedy that. you might want to stick a bag or two of logs on your short term list as we're rapidly heading into winter and although a Gas cut is unlikely a boiler breakdown...

Re: Thought I would put this here to see if anyone is interested.

If it sounds too good to be true/ fools and their money are soon parted...anyone else want to add a tried and tested saying about getting scammed?

Re: Woodlands??

I grew up with 500 acres of woodland at the end of my parents back garden ...... it was amazing and I do really miss it, I'd probably get more use out of it now than I did when I was a kid. I've been looking over the past few years at properties here in Scotland some are just super expensive or chea...

I did wear them out last winter a few times and they performed perfectly but for a multi-day winter hike I...

Re: Tobacco

I had thought of growing tobacco myself years back and I have seeds saved, I don't smoke so if I did grow it, it would be all barter.
