blackout on C4 now
Where I used to live blackout is a common occurrence in the entire city but I never seen people running amok. People are so used to blackout that there is hardly any panic but just a very warm/hot night swatting mosquito. Normally strong ceiling fans keep mosquito at bay … there you go. Oh ya … try running amok and people would not hesitate to exterminate you on the spot and ask question later. 😆
Although this is just a dramatisation I bet it is not far off with the zombie mentality seen recently in London.Posted 4 years agoFlaperonSubscriber
Food for a month, rainwater butts, a 20W solar panel, and 200 hours of LED lighting throughout the house. Sadly no facility to watch Breaking Bad once the laptop battery runs flat.
Seriously, I read a book about a year ago which discussed how easily we could end up in this situation and our just-in-time approach to common resources and I was seriously concerned.
Having said that, if im this situation I’d take the chance in the car which has a 1000 mile range if fuelled and set off to my parents’ house in deepest, darkest Devon where they have a similar setup but additional generators.Posted 4 years ago
All renewable energy will come in handy.
If you live life at the very basic then there is not much difference really apart from preparing to shoot zombies.

This is not easy to watch.
Yes, not easy especially most people live an iPhone and iPad lives.Posted 4 years ago
So how many people are actually prepped for such an eventuality? I’m assuming the following should be a good start…
Stock of bottled water
Stock of canned foods
Candles and lighting method
Solar charger for any torches etc
Wind up torch and radio
Reinforce the garage windows with bars etc and store all this in there
Spare diesel in jerry cans in the garage
A weapon whether legal or illegal?
Martial arts training
Some kind of veg garden?
I have none of the above but it’s making me think!Posted 4 years ago
