Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 5.

Here's a slightly off topic torch question for the electrical engineers on the forum - in the (possibly unlikely) event of a major EMP event will LED torches still work? It's my understanding that an emp will knock out electronics circuits and it's also my understanding that LED's have a small elect...

Re: Hi all, newbie from swansea

Hi Wiz, as a relative newbie here too I found just getting a couple of weeks food in for the family (just by picking up a couple of cans of food/rice etc every time i set foot in tesco's for beer), it settled that sort of low grade unease that had been lingering. Thankfully already had a lot of outd...

Re: Mental Health.

Hello all, professional head on here, as we're all agreed, mental health is a serious issue and suicide is the leading cause of death for men under 50 in the UK with men aged 40-44 the highest risk group. It's worth all of us taking a few minutes when we're in a good place to have a think about the ...

Re: medical equipment at home

Feeling outgunned here ;) my medical kit comprises of gloves, loperamide and tea towels. Thankfully noone in the house is on prescription meds otherwise we'd have them too.

Re: S.O. on board :-)

Jansman - thanks for the heads up - never knew that. Assumed that it was simply a case of housing feeding & watering them and et voila! Pantry on legs. Have shot & eaten a few out of the field but lot of work for relatively little food. Still, if ever it gets that bad I know now not to try and trap ...

Re: S.O. on board :-)

Yes, prepping sort of conjures images of zombies & machine guns. Target at the moment is storing enough food for a family of five for a week. Feel i'm "ready" enough for heating/cooking/water/lights for a good while. Pondering getting some sheets of plywood in for emergency window repairs. Suppose c...

S.O. on board :-)

My (much) better half & I were out sat around a fire in the garden last night chatting away when during the course of the conversation (I don't know what about now - had had a couple by then) the word "stockpiling" came up. I jumped on the chance to bring the conversation around to prepping - she's ...

Re: Wanted Nato Matt Green Paint (Spray Can)

Somewhat bizarrely halfords sell matt green "camo" paint. Don't know how close to NATO shade it is though.
