What is prepping

I’m a prepper ………….yes I am !

So what is this thing I do ? well I’m not to sure how to put it if I am honest the media says I’m a nut a crazy person . They might be right I’m not sure but what I do know is this .A wee while ago I worked for a company and I did my job to the best of my ability in that time .The person who employed me thought I was there for the good of my health  and didn’t keep to his side of the deal namely pay me my wages when they were due .This left myself and my family screwed over the Christmas time I asked a few time even for a sub but he gave me the hard up story or the i forgot my wallet type it even got to the point where I was looking for union help but they failed in they’re duties as well

I was slightly pissed off as you can imagine and from that time onwards I have been a prepper .This means I have food ,water and supplies in my home when I need them the most I look out for the folk around me and help others in my community when they need it the most as I know in the long run it will pay off not in money but in other ways if I ever need a hand with something I know someone will be able to help me and my family but here’s hoping  i never will

The prepper community  is wide and full of folk who prepare for problem that maybe around the corner some of these thing are real problems that can and will happen to the average person others are very much down the scale of life losing a job is high on the list with the way the country is being ran the markets are due for a false boom this is something that I am worried about as my main job is connected in this manor .I am working on something that will improve my lot in life and hope it pans out
My advice for folks it to look at what is the biggest problem you could face in the next ten weeks of your life  and start to work out what your needs are ,your home food for the family medical supplies and so forth

Its not just about the zombies knocking on the door or the big EMP strike we all dread its about the small thing in life that matter the most to you and your family and from there you can slowly start to build up to bigger things making decisions on the information at hand

Just start with food first it is one of the biggest hurdles to get around and organise .Work out how much you are going to need and for how long can you start to grow stuff in your garden if so, when do you start. Where does the best deals on stuff and questions like this .Water is the easiest one to do I had to check this over and over again and again to make sure it was right but it pans out The empty juice and soda bottles washed out and filled to the top can be stored away very quickly after a few weeks they just gather up to no end you’ll have enough water to run daily life. remember a little goes a long way  Security is another matter but its of a personal nature and can be or rather should be done in a one to on bases as everyone’s needs are different  depending on where you are

Have fun and get stuck in ,it might make a difference in your life or someone else’s

Only in our dreams are we free. The rest of the time we need wages.

Hi all

hope some of you are having a good summer here at the Kilt castle we are relaxing and enjoying the good weather we are having 

I have just got my perfect set up for airsoft at the moment Sniper rifle (M700 ) MP5 for fibua or CQB ,MR 60 for support weapon and evil kilt days of airsoft warfare an L85 for the other types of games as I am trained on the real steal weapon platform for a good few years and a 1911 pistol for “OH BUGGER” moments because well why the hell not Image

we also went to the local beach for a nice day out and to enjoy the sea air Toddler kilt had a good time she wasn’t to use to the sand and water but came around  a few hours .Toddler kilt has also entered the terrible twos a great stage to be in it means I now have a side kick to my general evil plans of life 

My bush buddy AK had a wound on his paw so i had to stop all training and play with him so it could heal up plus I don’t want to work him when it is hitting the upper 20C’s here in the UK it wouldn’t be fair to him to work when everyone else is melting maybe I am a little soft on him but saying he is my number one and always has my back when we are out it’s my job to look out for him as well Image

This is our best result so far AK pulled my arse right up and on top of this wee fawn and as a reward he got to sniff and lick the fawn .That boy worked for his dinner that day 

Mrs Kilt I swear is slowly turning grey with the things the rest of us get up to and I love her dearly so If any of you have any good ideas on how this could be done feel free to comment .That woman’s nerves are close to being shattered 

I’ll be back to work soon and back to the hum drum of that shite hole but it is looking up on that front and every day I’m working on improving my lot in life and that is what it should be for all of us as a goal in life 

God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of his own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a dealer who won’t tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.
