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

I remember reading something that stuck with me ( I think it was Richard A D'hart). All you need in life is clean fresh water, wholesome food, somewhere warm and safe to sleep and something constructive to do for body and mind. Not an exact quote but the gist of it has stuck with me and I can look a...

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

This is a prep in itself - building relationships with those around you. A good prep to think about on a weekly basis be it subconsciously or consciously. Couldn't agree more. My mother used to say "good manners cost nothing but could take you far". Same goes for little kindnesses. I'm fortunate in...

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've always been sooo glad I had my stores, they've helped make a bad time a little easier and less scary. just knowing you can feed your family makes coping a little easier. I have al...
