Re: New member - Greater Manchester - Looking for network.

Loving the sound of storage cubes, by the way. Wellies in the car? The world's worst footwear imo unless it's flooding a decent pair of high leg combat boots are better in 95% of the situations I wear wellies down the allotment if it's wet but hardly any other time .. cold sweaty horrid things :lol...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

I have been researching new leather walking boots for myself as I think whatever happens in the future a good pair of boots is needed. If we get snowed in I don't want to be out in my fabric boots. The army cold weather haix boots are nice and comfy obviously we all have different feet shapes but w...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Well I'll get to test out no-electric cooking preps later as my oven and hob have just blown! Switched off the grill and a white spark came out of the grill knob with a big 'pop' and everything is off. Not affected other electrics thankfully.
