Re: Metal detector

Not sure but I think the mesh in debris netting may be too big.
You can buy archery netting but it starts at ~£100 so torn between buying that or (and this is twisted logic and seems incredibly wasteful) just accepting losing some arrows & replacing them. £100 buys a lot of semi decent arrows.

Re: Storing diesel? Long term?

My tuppence worth - I keep 2*10 litre plastic cans of diesel, they usually sit for a year until I feel I should use them so put them in the car and refill. As for petrol I fill my motorbike at the start of winter and it sits until usually April/may time so maybe up to six months and always starts no...

Nice indeed. My veg patch crop has been pretty dismal this year.

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

Yes, bit suspicious that nowhere is the age demographic of positive tests being published.
I agree that its probably spreading around the working age group at ptesent and will work its way out into the more vulnerable in probably a short period of time.

Re: How ready are you?

Yeah. Things would have to be very very grim indeed to reach the point of bugging out. I wild camp year round and love it but it would be a utterly different story to survive in the "wilderness" (if there is such a thing in the UK) with the family in tow (capable & also very experienced wild campers...

Re: Interesting article on continuing flour shortages.

In fact I've just re-read it and think its largely scaremongering and other than stating its from a leaked document can't verify their sources.

Re: How long have you prepped for

Im guessing that there are going to be widely varying opinions/thoughts regarding this which is always good. Personally, we're in a remote area where we can get snowed in for a few days so fully prepped for that. Secondary to that we can feed the family & fuel the house for a very comfortable three ...

Re: Small containers for burying

Jenny's idea is indeed genius. You could even take it as step further and bury a crumpled wet wipe an inch or so under the surface to "discourage" further exploration ;-)
