Re: Ideal habitat for survival long term.

From what I recall of Warwick castle I think you'll need to block up a few doorways as well as raising the drawbridge, oh and maybe flood the moat again. On the plus side all those waxworks would give you a wonderful fuel source :D

Re: No water

Basically any large storage container can be called a butt ( that's with two t's not one) although normally people refer to a barrel sized thing of 30 -90 gallon capacity.

Re: EDC Torch?

Those little torches are nothing to be laughed at and can be as helpful as a full size jobbie. I recall recently watching the news coverage of the Colorado floods and a military officer was saying that they had used night vision equipment to rescue people who were able to signal using one of those k...

Re: Guerilla Gardening

I did a quick search and it seems it's more common than I would have thought. Technically it IS illegal but from what I can see it's largely , but not completely , overlooked. Obviously illicit drugs are something the police will pursue but I can recall a few months ago a young man being either pros...

Re: The opposite of guerilla gardening

I do like that idea Eddie but alas the van is an LDV pilot panel van so no good as a greenhouse ( besides which I've got two out the back) but it is currently doing sterling work as a shed :)

Re: The opposite of guerilla gardening

Thanks Mr R , with the exception of dill I've got all of the above. Well maybe not the dandelions as I try and remove them from the garden as I can find them elseware. I'm not too keen on them for salads as I find them a little bitter but did make some coffee from the roots recently. Certainly smell...

Re: how do i work it out?

A friend called me the other day and said he was in two minds about buying a generator. He said he picked one up and started walking towards the checkout and then changed his mind not sure wether he really needed one or not and what was my opinion on the matter. As I said to him the only real reason...

Re: The opposite of guerilla gardening

Thanks Mr R, seems we have a similar way of looking at things . I do have several herbs in the front at the moment along with wild strawberry plants and the almond tree. I'm growing borage round the back at the moment alongside the tomatoes. Allegedly it's beneficial to the toms. The plan is to harv...

Re: What are you prepping for?

I'm inclined to agree with what you say Nick . The QE and money printing that has been going on has had some negative effects.An example of that is the recent announcement by the US government that an improved economy should mean that there will be less QE . The markets didn't react positivly to the...
