Re: Tesla Car Batteries

Yeah, 18650's are a bit of a thing - all sorts of videos etc. on building your own power wall (the Tesla PowerWall is built from the same batteries) or just power banks. Just about all battery drills etc. are populated with them these days.

Re: Checking your bags

Good shout on the dry bags - I have a few spare & mould is something that's put me off packing a hospital bag so far (detached bungalow is bloody riddled with it in winter)

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

I have a few packs of body wipes for emergency washing if needed though to be truthful I'm not actually sure exactly where I've stashed them right now so definitely worth me refreshing my memory... https://www.amazon.co.uk/Clinell-CBC60-Bath-Body-Wipes/dp/B011RKA9Q6/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=wash...

Oh good thinking Jansman I forgot about cat food. Beeglie would not be amused. Well she seldom is, really.. :mrgreen: I don't know if you've heard of "Grumpy Cat" going viral for a few years (sadly now passed) but your Beeglie looks like she could be a dead-ringer for taking over the reigns! https:...

Re: New Forest preppy

Welcome aboard. One of the tenets of prepping is to be wary of who knows about your preps - i.e. if all your neighbours know that you have a "stash" - then if it hits the fan, you know who's going to be turning up on YOUR doorstep to look for the stuff they couldn't be bothered keeping. For that rea...

I have loads of bloody tomato plants almost ready for planting out/potting up already, I don't need any more, but I WAS looking forward to my chillies! No idea how the hell I m...

Now that I have a "manual" door available I can mo...

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

Have sown some new lettuce seeds today - last year those in the ground were virtually untouched but this year they've just getting cut off at the base, presumably slugs. No idea why so different but might be due to a different bed this year (with different compost in the current bed).
