Re: Rural property, but the locals don't want you there ...

We sold our rural property in Utah last summer. Our rural property in KS has just been sold. We got tired of our 'good neighbors' stealing everything not set in concrete, quite literally soon after each visit. You leave preps at a site unattended, count on them being gone - sooner or later.

Re: Arson/Attacks/Vandalism in Houses of Worship - 2020

What really threw me was a notice that the LDS leadership (@SLC?) put out a blanket ban of firearms in the facilities. The few LDS folks I know had a very hard time with that - seems no explanation was given. I have to assume its a liability issue. Apparently, dead parishioners are cheaper than bein...

Pretty nasty, dozen dead, flooding in Turkey from a 'small' tsunami.

Almost zero in the US press/Mass Media. I imagine more phiotos will show up once the international disaster relief industrial complex licks in.

A quick dive on the web shows many church's ban firearms in the facility. Given the number of different churches shot up of late, I find the reaction most curious.

Re: Sleep during Disaster/Crisis

With a nod to my buds in the Rangers, we use the "1 sleep system per two folks". One is up and (hopefully) alert. The other can sleep better knowing someone has their back. A park, public shelter (shudder) or is Das Auto - one awake has been our 'standard' for decades. I always take the 'dawn' shift...
