I've not seen those before - I like the self contained nature of them

You can get them up to something like 12kg I wouldn't like to try and put that up on my own it was a struggle holding the 2kg one and getting the nut and bolt started


I've got a 1kg unit similar shape to a standard extinguisher under the bonnet of my car the anaf branded one will take been side mounted had it some years now ...

You can also get a halon equivalent clean agent for more sensitive areas
If your roughing it, Your doing it wrong ;)

Bit more detail guessed for £26 it's not going to cause the bank manager to come and hunt me down :lol:

Like most preppers outbuildings they are chock full of "stuff" from tools to fuel and the risks associated with storage and everyday life from a electrical fault to a moment of carelessness leaving something smouldering then shutting the door ..
That looks great. Fire prevention for sheds and outbuildings is something that a lot of us probably don't think about enough.

And it's the place we "should" be storing any flammables away from the house and living areas .. in real terms however this is often where manly :lol: tasks get carried out and the tumble drier gets put ...

I do need to sort out my flammables and organise it better in an ideal world I need a vented metal cabinet of sone form

I picked up more coal today. I shall keep picking it up,whilst it is still available. Paraffin is another commodity; I use it for frost protection of pipes outside,and protecting plants on the greenhouse. Next year that protection may well be imperative.I save a lot of seed,but I shall pick up non hybrid seeds very soon, just to be sure.

Long term food storage is another. Rice,whilst available,pasta,and dehydrated spuds too. As mentioned elsewhere here,flour ( and yeast) . Fishing tackle I have for a lifetime :lol: but for hunting,more .22 air gun ammunition. An air gun is superb for putting a dinner on the table. I have shotguns,but the .22 is more stealthy.
In three words I can sum up everything I have learned about life: It goes on.
