How we need to prepare

Recent Comments



Couple of nuggets of information I’ve gathered that I’m passing on. Might be interesting, may not, depending on your interest.

I’ve been away up in the North East on a job interview and I took advantage of the trip to visit our dear friend Northern Raider. A very pleasant visit where we spent a few hours discussing the world of prepping and what was going on in this country. A very interesting and pleasant guy. Thank you NR for your hospitality. He can’t make it on Saturday but I’ll be meeting him again.

On a different trip into North Wales I came across a new superstore called Charlies. It has taken over the premises for an old B&Q so that tells you the size of the place and it is a preppers dream. There were only a few things missing, no rifles, not even air rifles, but they had some beginners bow and arrow sets. They have many items we are looking for such as camping stoves and tools at reasonable prices. I can see me spending a lot more time in there soon. They have several stores around the middle to North Wales. Worth a visit if you are anywhere near.

I’ve just bought one of the food dehydrators that were reasonably priced yet recommended from Westfalia. Got to give it a go. It’s just arrived and I’m ready to give it a go. Just have to go out and get something to put in it for a test.

I’m quite looking forward to the book meet on Saturday. Look forward to seeing those that are coming there. Don’t forget the fuel though. Our places are all still open so far and I’ve just watched two refill. One of my pals told me that in one shift alone his garage took an extra £17K sales from fuel.

    You are going to enjoy dehydrating your food. It is time consuming up front but then you can leave it to do its work.
    Hope you find out some good tidbits to pass on to us.

    You mean those that break when you pull the string taut?

    Charlies in Welshpool is superb. Quality tools at prices a lot less than other retailers. Full range of country & work wear – all good stuff. Ironmongery & farm items also – all cheap. Well worth a visit when passing. 🙂 (I have no connection to Charlies – the place is genuinely A1)

    Hello from Florida (USA). You’ll like using a dehydrater. For a first project try dehydrating some frozen vegies (peas, corn, carrots, etc.) It saves you from having to steam or parboil items before dehydrating. A good resource is the website You’ll find videos, recipes, and recommendations for dehydrating different food items.

    Welcome. I’ll give that a go. Saves me going shopping and I can get started now.

    I’ll have a look at the link. Any tips are worthwhile. Thanks.
