Re: Where's my meds

Re: 23rd September - the end : yay or nay ?

I'm going to guess 'nay' based on the fact that we're all still here. We are still here, aren't we???

Moving House and Prepping

I'm moving to a new city in BC next month and it's surprising to me how stressful it is when I consider moving my preps and potentially getting rid of some stuff. Being in an apartment, I only have enough food & water for about 6 weeks stored (due to a lack of space) but I'm going to have to get...

Re: Bug deterrents

I tried the Off clip-on and found that it didn't do anything. I hope you have better luck!

Re: Thoughts on Manchester et al

I read a book from the library a while back, very practical. Focussed on foreign travel, war zones,etc, but great tips on crowds and situational awareness... https://www.amazon.com/How-Avoid-Being-Killed-Zone/dp/1608195856 Thanks for that.
