There's the space to carry it and should it be needed a full sized one will do a much better job. For me it's just practical to have a fold up one. I j...

Re: Equipping a vehicle

At the risk of opening one's mouth and sounding like an idiot... Do glass breakers and seatbelt cutters not need to be within reach of driver/passengers...? My seatbelt cutter/window breaker tool is in the pocket behind passenger seat so I can reach it from the driver position, though thinking abou...

Article of the new rules around wood and coal burning for home heating

For those who with use as a main heat source or those preppers who have it as a back up, I thought this might be worth while posting. (Tho I'm sure if you use wood and coal as your main fuel source, you know this already! :D ) https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/house-coal-and-wet-wood-restriction...

Re: Equipping a vehicle

It sounds like you're pretty covered. I did carry a fold up spade during winter months but I haven't put that back in for a few winters now. Probably ought to as I'm just tempting fate really!

Re: I’m back

Hullo again :D I do remember you. I have a tendency to disappear off the boards myself for months at a time then pop up for a good few months before going quiet again. That's life for you! I tend to get refocussed on looking at things from an actual prep point of view after just bumbling along with ...

Re: Who's getting the vaccine

When I had the first vaccine at the end of Feb ( I'm listed as my adult daughter's carer at the GPs), I had only had Covid 5 weeks before so the doc warned me I'd feel pretty lousy and I sure did that night.

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 8.

Preps this week involve logging back onto this board which I haven't done for a couple of months - I got a lot of reading to catch up on! :lol: Apart from that, it's things such as going through my garage preps and restocking from the running down of those supplies that I did recently. Make lists of...
