I like a drop of Woodfordes myself, Nelsons Revenge by choice.

My word, two and a half weeks since the last post on here? I'm sure there's more going on than that. In my house, there are ecstatic celebrations (okay, two cups of tea one after the other) - my kitchen is finished! The central light was fitted last week, and this afternoon the sealant between the work surface and the wall was finally done. It's not painted, but right now I don't care, I'm just so happy to have it all completely functional, especially in light of what we've been writing on the "Escalating Events" thread.

I'm having a second go round of the whole house for plaster dust, and I've found a huge hole by the living room window where the tv cable used to come in (separate box now). That might be where the draft has been coming from :oops: Going to smack it on the nose tomorrow.

Great News. :)
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'.

Thanks pseudonym :) and actually, I've been downloading madly too, it's kind of addictive. Using a search word brings up some amazing things. First aid, fishing, psychology, crafts, gardening, all sorts.

Mrs J had a new car today.I now have her old one ( 4 years old!) and have cleared the crap from my old jam jar. Basically,I have sorted and condensed my spare clothing and get home bag.Boy,was I carting some crap about!

My get home bag is now a Belgian Army rucksack,very water proof,that also contains my trusty waxed jacket and other clothing. It all sits nice and tidily,velcroed to the side of the boot.I have been used to a 'secrecy ' board where I hid the crap.Now it has to be in sight and compact.This will be developed to be a cover- all emergency kit.Along with the hotel bag,it will be all good,I reckon.Not carting junk though.

We got a new car too, a convertible so not a very useful car for preppers really..
I'm reading Jack Reacher, sorry that's not a lot of use for a prepper either.. :twisted:
So sack me. I'm taking time out before things really do fall off the cliff :mrgreen:

Ohhhh a soft top great for fording deep water... You can float out of the top of it gets too deep ;)


Which jack reacher are you reading? 2 have been turned into films... Not a carbon copy of the book but a good watch ..


Sorted my skip out at the weekend! Went to the council tip chucked out the rubbish and the chap who checks what your dumping went to help me get the rest out !!! So boot sorted fire extinguisher mounted to the ammo tin which is ratchet strapped to the cargo lashing..

Next job is to reduce the first aid kit to a sensible level and size......


Put new carpet in my trailer tent today too not a prep as such but it gave me chance to check the structure of the floor (plywood) our towable bug out choice ;)

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

Got the first 18 audiobooks bar the 1.5 hour length ones, I'm a tightwad and refuse to pay full amount when the others average 11 hours :twisted:

5 to go I think :mrgreen:

I found Woman on the Edge of Time over there - wonderful SF book, about before and after the end of the world :mrgreen:

Lil, a soft top? How many days a year are you going to be able to use it open? Respect!
