Re: New Member

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you're way ahead in the prepping stakes and will have at least as much to teach as to learn.

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

Am a little divided just now, I want to do a bit of spring cleaning , which is easier if your cupboards are not over full, on the other hand there are so many reasons at the moment , indicating that building my preps up would be a good idea. The latter won, I went shopping yesterday for milk, fruit ...

Re: What made you become a prepper?

I suppose I've been a prepper since the day I left home as a teenager heading to college. I would load my cupboard in my slum bedsit with bargains i'd found so that as my money got low at end of term, I'd still have food. Life has reinforced this basic instinct. Having children with no money teaches...

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

I'm having my own personal SHTF at the moment. I've been told that I have to move out of my little bungalow. I'm being given plenty of time, but I still have to move on.
