Hello All, Ive had a request from a good mate of mine, i personally do not think that im upto giving him the "Best Possible advice". so i come here and request some help from you Monkeys. I will start by giving you some background on him and then we can take it from there. We will call him Mr Grey, simply because he is "ultra paranoid" about everyone and everything, which i may add is why he is not asking for this request himself. 1) he does not own a PC 2) he lives on his own, in a flat (appartment) in London / Essex border. 3) he has a mobile phone (not on contract) he uses it 3 times at most then gets rid of the sim card and gets another one. 4) he only pays cash for everything 5) dosent have a bank account since being made bankrupt over 5yrs ago. Anyway, back to the help, he keeps telling me im mad for going onto the net blah blah blah (see above), but he has noticed that we are all in for a big change and has requested my advice on where to start.. Ive said in laymens terms: Food / Shelter /Water. Now i will need help from the Monkeys in order for us to elaborate on this for him. His car full up with petrol will get him 350 miles away from where he is today, that will be far enough to take him to a relative place of saftey, providing the roads are open all the way (most will be motorway driving), at least out of the city. He would have only about £400 in cash now to spend on essentials, lets say that Food / shelter and water are covered (to get him where he needs to be )...whats the next step he can take? He has been to an ex-surplus store in order to purchase some bits and bobs ie f/ w/ s, but im not and expert in helping others im just about getting to grips with this for me and my family... any ideas?
