I'm a prepper, although prior to the age of the I interweb I'd have been called a...

SURVIVALIST!!!!

Shock horror indeed.

Food and non perishables for the family for about 3 months, independent powers supplies, several weeks of water (more with rationing), legally held firearms and crossbow so hu ting and civil defence ar covered, financial independence, enough wood to heat and cook for a year.

Aside from being able to look after me and my loved ones in a SHTF situation, as a patriot I consider it my duty to reduce my reliance on government support in times of national emergency.  I also use as little road fuel as possible (I'm a cyclist you see, with a tiny car that hardly uses any fuel) thus reducing the countries reliance on foreign energy sources.

Common sense, preparedness, patriotism.  What's not to like?

Well they've steered us up the creek without the paddle, I was hoping I'd at least have something to wipe my arse with while here but it looks like the raging old bastards have made sure to rob me of even that precious luxury.

This stockpiling thing would have made my late Granny very happy, she always had a cupboard full of cans of meat and fruit just in case.
I think it was quite common amongst those who lived through the depression then the war and rationing.

Yep.  When one of our local oldies died a few years ago, they found her under stairs cupboard and pantry were packed full of tins - some of which were over 40 years old...

Stock up now on washing powder and use flannels or cut up old sheets and towels. Dampen with water and they do a better job than tp anyway. You can get a bucket with a lid to store them once used until they are washed. If you don't have any rags to use, you can get washable wipes from ebay or posh ones from cheeky wipes or similar companies.

A practical tip on this thread! (from a practical person, it must be said)
After that there's left hand and water.
