Hello from the Midlands

Post by F for Freddy » Fri Mar 20, 2020 7:58 am

Hi everyone. Been a small time prepper for a few years now. I thought I'd feel smug when the SHTF and I'd be able to tell the sceptical wife 'I told you so'. In reality I'm regretting not doing a bit more.
We're the outdoors/camping/walking type, so our hobbies have introduced us to a lot of useful items, information and habits. Nice to meet you all. Stay safe in these challenging times

Welcome!
How do you feel you could have done More?

There’s still time to top up on your preps!
I for example didn’t have anywhere near the food or baby supplies I needed.

Over the last three weeks, I’ve gradually topped up everything to a level I’m now comfortable with for the time being.
Without buying everything that’s left on the shelf of course.

Hello Freddy, welcome to the forum - you've obviously got a good start, don't be too hard on yourself, just carry on doing what you can, and have a think about what you can do during any lockdown.

Thanks for the nice welcome. It's good to be in touch with like minded people. I suppose we've all got things on our 'to do' list that never seem to get done :D
I've been meaning to get a new, solid shed/storage area built for a couple of years now. And I bet most of us wish we had a bigger stockpile. Still, I'll crack on, I've noticed over the last couple of months that adding a little each time soon builds up a good supply of essentials. Cheers all
