Hi everyone

Post by saint-pete » Tue Oct 03, 2017 3:10 pm

Hello there, my name's Pete, I'm from Bristol. A total stranger to prepping, but with the current unstable situation with my job I've started thinking of possible rainy days and by extension about power cuts, civil unrest and so on. I got interested in prepping after looking through the threads here, you seem knowledgeable, experienced and nice people :) Going to read hard and occasionally add my two cents. Thank you for having me.

Pete

Hello and welcome to the Forum. :)
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'.

Welcome to the forum Pete, as you're a self confessed newb the best advice I can give is don't rush in, prepping is a broad subject and there are lots of things that can catch your eye. Start with the basics of water, food (and something to cook it if the gas/lecky fails) and build from there. Don't get caught up with what others have, its whatever works for you and enjoy it.

Hi there
I'm also new to this, the guys on the forum have been very supportive and friendly and are a great help.
Look at the threads and the advice given and then build from there.
