What preps are you doing this week? Part 3.

Post by pseudonym » Wed Dec 30, 2015 11:44 am

An annual occurance, just to keep the page numbers down a bit. :mrgreen:

Kindle fire 8 - to bring me partly into the IT age.

Loaded it already with pdfs and books.... :geek:
The roads are pretty bad and if you do end up getting stuck its hard to justify your reason for being on the roads as 'vegan mince for a feckin' princess'.

With whats happened with all these floods recently, I have decided that my main preps store in the house will no longer be the large cupboard / room that i was working on shelfing out on the ground floor, but 2 seperate cupboards upstairs instead

As per my flooding prep post I have added a large number of family photos to the usb stick in the grab n go bag.

Umm, I've already started on Christmas 2016 :o , wrapping paper and Christmas cards are a bargain right now..............

I picked up one of these when we did the shop the other day, it makes it really easy to store a load of films etc as the big USB end goes straight into the computer.
The little end fits both my tablet and my phone, and the whole thing is teeny, the size of the end of my thumb.
USB 3.0 too so it doesn't take forever to transfer everything;

Lack of planning on your part doesn't make it an emergency on mine

Was in plumb centre today and they had Milwaukee tool rucksacks on special offer , God loves a salesman, but the £120 heated jacket with usb charging point was a bit ott . However it's heavy duty lots of pockets and I can retire my ck tools shoulder bag as it was killing me humfing my tools up and down princess st daily

Have transferred my tools over to it and impressed so far .time however will tell

Managed to pick up a few boxes of aa and aaa batteries Duracell professional, in a hideous orange colour . £4 for 10 .

Will find time to transfer my Bob from existing to new 5.11 rush over the hols,
Seems to be rucksack Christmas for me

Have you actually put 64gb on it and checked it's all still there? Theres load of dodgy zip drives about, usually they are 16gb but hacked to show higher, when you add stuf it overwrites once it gets full. you won't know untill you check if it's all there and available.
