Re: Securing a camper

Thanks for the ideas folks, you can keep them coming. We are on a small road off to one edge of the village, the only reason for coming down here is to come down here. We get on well with the neighbours and some of them are 'Older Persons' and as such are at home during the day. Diskloc and pedal cl...

Securing a camper

Hiya Folks Herself is buying a camper (I'm going to call it a Bug-Out Vehicle ... In my head anyway :lol: ) and due to the fact they fetch a good sum on the market, they are eminently nickable. We're planning on keeping it parked on the drive (right outside our bedroom window) and probably blocked i...

Re: No jab, no job

My opinion. Whether you have any seasonal vaccination or not is none of your employers business. I did get the 'Flu jab for a couple of seasons but my surgery decided that I no longer qualified, I'm not old enough yet. Likewise, I won't get invited for a C-19 one until fairly late in the year. If my...

Re: The rule of threes.

CO detectors cost less then 20 quid (for a named brand like Kidd).
If you burn anything indoors, get one...... It could save your life.

Re: What made you become a prepper?

It’s interesting that the tanker strike was the catalyst for so many here. We made loads of money ( for the four days it lasted) as people were panic buying. I wonder how many preppers were ‘born’ after The Great COVID Supermarket Sweep of 2020? :lol: Perhaps Scoobie could have a count of new membe...

Re: Fishing

I am a proponent of Ragnar Benson ( the old school American survivalist) and his ‘Rule of Threes’ Good rule. I just don't see myself fishing. Maybe I'd try to hunt rabbits, geese, wood pigeon before I'd try fish. I hate shellfish, too. So I would say to Jerseyspud, that if you really want to learn ...

Re: Eat like a Peasant?

Income inequality doesn’t go away. We are seeing , now, a massive upcoming polarisation of incomes. No political slant here; it’s fact. Food is a basic ,human necessity. Food banks are now part and parcel of UK life. My wife is a primary school teacher,and she sees a lot of poverty these days- and ...

Re: What made you become a prepper?

I was aware of various "threats" over the years but the event which actually "woke me up with a shock" was the Sep 2000 tanker drivers strike. My dad was due to come home from hospital with a care package for home help and "meals on wheels", then everything stopped and he had to go to a nursing hom...

They should be OK, they're both wearing masks and gloves
