    Food & Water Our New Water Pump.

    Survival Personalising Equipment.

    Do any of you ever personalise your equipment? My Father used to paint all his tools blue, except for certain tools like his 17th century lathing hatchet & his 19th century fascine knives/billhooks. When he gave me my first felling axe he painted the head red! My Mother wouldn't let me take it...

    Your Honest Opinion.

    Just how well prepared do you think the average prepper in the UK is to handle a major shtf situation? I ask this for various reasons, 1) in many survival blogs the emphasis always seems to be on gadgetry, "you must have this" or "if you are serious about survival then you will need one of...

    Hunter Gatherer Stinging Nettle.

    Stinging nettles can also be boiled or steamed as a green veg to go with other dishes. To me it tastes like Spinach. This plant grows widely in the UK & in Australia.

    Hunter Gatherer Chooks For Food & Medicine.

    Chicken soup is one of our modern panaceas for all ills, but it was also used as medicine in the eighteenth century. However, while nowadays it is associated with treating colds and flu (and has actually been proved to have anti-inflammatory properties¹), then it appears to have been considered...

    Food & Water Garlic As A Food & Medicine.

    Since making this video I have done a little more research. Most authorities on the subject of foods seem to agree that garlic was not high on the list of good foods, but further research of my own shows that this was mainly among the upper classes, and it was because of the garlic smell.
