I've only done it 5 times so far (budget, transport etc.) getting as much as i could carry at any one point.

gotta get started on security.
anyone got any low budget ideas that a 17 year old can easily get?

Cheap vacuum sealer is a good investment, along with a dehydrator.

Security wise, look at http://www.oliverbrown.co.uk and wikipedia Wink

Start from the ground up, so look at http://www.freebookspot.es (or torrents) and get some martial arts books / dvds and a couple of friends to spar with. THEN look at the next level up, i.e. knives / crossbows etc.

You can go to a local rifle club without any issues, your age shouldn't be a problem.
PLEASE NOTE: The post above contains no truths. It's all bullshit scavenged from the darkest corners of a lunatic mind. Dribble dribble dribble. Woof woof woof.

You just have to make the best of a less than ideal situation; I'm 17 ,still in full time education and living with family. Every Thursday I take 2.5 shopping bags full of food and supplies home from the market, spending around £15. I'm running out of room under my bed; it builds up quickly if you are consistent.

For Security experience, get involved in the Army Cadets and Explorers (scouts on roids.) It's one of the few places in the UK where you get shooting experience. Through cadets I have learnt small unit tactics, field-craft, shooting, weapons handling, sentry duties etc.

Analyse your local area. Look at OS maps and Google earth. Walk around and explore. You should know your home turf better than your opponent. Think about ways to defend your local area, natural terrain features etc. Also think how you would attack it, and plug those gaps.

You should also condition yourself to be in state yellow mindset at all times; alert to danger, but mostly relaxed.

Think about weapons. Are there guns in the house? Can you use them, clean them, get your hands on them quickly? What about air rifles, bows, crossbows? Get what you can and train with it. I am getting an air rifle via cash purchase from a friend. No paper work, totally off the radar. Next on my list is either a bow or crossbow. Keep your ears to the ground for opportunities to obtain hardware. Mentally prepare yourself for taking a life, and the potential legal aftermath.

Think about physical security.Have you considered thick spiky hedges? Placing them under ground floor windows and around fence lines will stop prowlers; no-one wants to crawl through natures equivalent of a sack of dirty needles, and if they are higher than head height, the starving proletariat cannot scope out your home. Don't box yourself in through your own defenses; keep carpet scraps near windows so you can escape if you need to.

Is your door strong? Does it look strong? Remember hidden defenses are good because they cannot be planned for effectively.
Can you see whose on the other side without opening it? Home invasion scenarios often involve the door being opened slightly, then rushing in and taking control. It's your castle, so don't let them in.

Excellent advice from tibbles there... sounds like you've got a good prepper head on your shoulders...Big GrinBig GrinBig Grin
Try B&m stores if you have one nearby, I got a huge tin of fruit from there the other day, its that big you can use the empty tin for a wood stove... 99p Many bargains plus the pound shops usually sell tins 3 for a pound as well. Again I picked up a tenners worth of spam, ham etc from there.
I tried to be normal once.... Worst two minutes of my life...
