Re: No cost or low cost preps

he explained about bin raiding....most supermarkets don't say anything All1 Please don't do this. Regardless of the morality of of it (I've no issue with it) it is theft and you could be prosecuted for it. On a similar note my father worked for the council in the refuse department and barely a day ...

Re: Storing diesel? Long term?

How much are you thinking of storing? Or perhaps how much do you use? The 50 gallon drums would seem a decent enough idea. I store mine in jerry cans and that decision is based on ease and that i don't use a huge amount so a 50 gallon drum would spend a lot of the time either partly full or being to...

Re: 27 years in the woods!

Read it through myself . Interesting but the question in my mind all the way through was why?. Why go in the first place? Why not build a better shelter if he intended to spend the rest of his life there? But the biggest why to me is why fund it all through crime? I found it hard to have any empathy...

Re: How ready are you?

Not particularly high on my list either if i'm honest save for the getting out if there was a fire. Floods wouldn't worry us either as we're not in a position to suffer from them. I've been more focused on the long slow crash and building resilience to that. Getting out in a very short period of tim...

Re: Living in a garage or caravan or what

I'd also vote for the caravan. Not knowing any details about the garage but would it need any work doing to it as part of the build , electrics for example? That would mean someone coming in and making a mess of your temporary living space. I'd also suggest that if you go with the caravan let the bu...

Re: Remove packets or not

Not being on any medication i don't feel fully qualified to comment but we do have things like paracetamol in the house. I tend to find that the boxes are quite large for what is inside them but two or three boxes can be condensed into one simply by putting all of the sleeves in one box. Edit just s...

Re: Bike to charge phones

Might be an interesting read https://www.lowtechmagazine.com/2011/05/bike-powered-electricity-generators.html It's not saying that it is impossible but does make one aware of the problems involved. Just to add a question , how long are phones going to be active in a SHTF situation and if it's a loca...
