Re: Metal detector

:D :D
I'm quite tempted to paint the shaft between the fletchings & nock in luminous paint and go wandering about after dark to see if that helps!

PS - I'm not even trying the longbow at anything near that distance unless its clout!

Re: Metal detector

Thanks Corvus, sadly all three, wood for the longbow, Ali for the recurve & carbon for the compound.
The field belongs to the forestry so can't really go strimming it. Close range isn't an issue but stretching out the distance to 75m I'm missing quite a lot :-(

Metal detector

Not strictly prepping but I know there's a broad range of knowledge here so hoping someone will keep me right - I'm after a metal detector to find lost arrows in the 20 acre field behind the house. Can anyone recommend a reasonable unit below £100 or are you just buying a toy in that price range? Ch...

Re: Vacuum packing and long term storage.

May I ask where people are buying their dehydrated veg from? Can't seem to find it anywhere (at least not at a sensible price vs packet size ratio!)
Cheers

Re: 2nd wave preps

Whilst we will continue to quietly add a bit extra to our weekly shop I'm hoping (probably naively) that if there is another run on the supermarkets they'll have learnt from last time and instigate a limit on purchases pronto.

Re: Home Medical/Brexit Kit list

If you're going to buy a pulse oximeter its worth considering getting one with an ear probe. All pulse oximeters are just an indication of blood oxygen saturation not a definitive result.

"Southern survivors" on Netflix

Discovered "southern survivors" on Netflix the other day. Quite painfully trashy & Ott but also very entertaining. It's basically an infomercial for an american survival gear company but they test the equipment in quite entertaining ways. Including using a resqme to escape from a car submersed in a ...
