Re: What preps are you doing this week? Part 3.

Does the belly count as prepping though? by my reckoning you'll take longer to starve. I know I could out last lots of people :lol:

Thats my plan for if things go really really wrong. Find a really good hiding place and out wait all the fitness freaks that weigh 5 stone wet through. :tinfoil

Re: What I'm covering in my prep

At risk of hijacking this thread I gotta tell you all I had sort of a break through on the camping side of things.

Re: Extracting last few teeth ideas help.

I'm guessing your first choice is to avoid a rumble with someone bigger (little point in swapping one pain for another), so I'm guessing you want a relative painless method. I found this online Teeth clenching or grinding is a major culprit: Whether due to anxiety or other causes, many people develo...

Re: Berries

I found this while I was mooching around google I don't know if it's right or not but it could be interesting to find out.

Oh it doesn't say on the link but it's a map of trees/bushes with edible fruit growing wild in the uk.

Re: Suggest an EDC Pen

I'm sure I heard somewhere that they like us to use black ink because it stands out better when photocopying. I don't know how right it is though, perhaps it was so a few years ago but I doubt it's as important now, what with 50 million colour printers, gazillion mega pixel this and so on

Re: 10 year olds purse

Re: 10 year olds purse

I agree Azosah in a pressure situation people do forget even the most basic things particularly children, while kids today do understand the 999 procedure maybe a leaflet about first aid (a very basic one) may be an idea that gives them something to do and reminds them to call for help.

Re: 10 year olds purse

It's never too late to come in with ideas Munchh :) Well we are all in agreement about the torch, I think the parents can be convinced if I can get her to use it at the right time, like when her mother is carrying stuff down the steps. Some great ideas thanks everyone. Jamesey, I find the grenades t...
