Re: Computer?

I'd have to agree with Plymton. some form of e reader and memory cards over a laptop. Just for the weight and size advantage and it doesn't all have to be how to do stuff. I'd say it's at least as important to have something along just to read for the sake of your sanity, the odds are internet will ...

Re: calor gas bottle

This might sound like a dumb question, but alternate cooking supplies were something I never really considered before coming on here. Apart from a hexi stove for camping, I never gave it a thought until now. Do the calor gas etc refills have a use by date or do they just last as long as the seal on ...

Re: What preps are you doing this week? part 2.

Same as most of us we've been getting the last stages of Xmas together but a few more bits of the winter kit have come, just a couple of bits left but it's going to be next month for them, but at least the main things have been taken care of. We went shopping yesterday I added to the bin bag collect...

Re: What preps are you doing this week? part 2.

Well the winter kit has gone in the wife's car, although it's not quite finished, but I can add to it as I go. Mine's got the snow shovel and some water, the rest will have to wait but at least the wife will be OK. I knew it was gonna be a marathon rather than a sprint, but it'll keep me busy. Done ...

Re: What preps are you doing this week? part 2.

Been a busy week for me, remember I'm starting out almost from scratch apart from buying a couple of tins of beans extra. I've done both the wife and myself the little key ring thing I mentioned with a bit of cash in it and a couple of paracetamol in each really couldn't get any more in them. Slow s...

Re: poop / toilet paper

Just thinking about colour coding, I'm a carer and we were taught light colours for the head arms general body dark for the other areas/jobs.

A simple rule but if it's done throughout a family/company etc theres no mistakes.

Re: poop / toilet paper

Just an interesting bit of trivia about TP.

I'm sure I read the other day that it was 1934 before they could advertise it as splinter free, it's come a long way :)

Hi Yorkshire newbie

Hi, I've been lurking in the background for a few days now and like what I've seen. I'm new to prepping I usually pick up a few extras when my dismal pay packet allows (how long can a person survive on baked beans?), but so far I've not had either the ideas or knowledge of where to start properly. T...
