Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

I stopped watching last season, but I still read this thread.

Re: Active Shooter on Vegas Strip

I dislike being in a contained crowd setting where I am at the mercy of the multitudes and must rely on organizers (and their hired security) to safeguard my well-being. As Manchester showed, you can have good security in a venue, but be vulnerable outside the venue. This incident shows that being i...

Re: Fallout 4......

I started playing on survival mode a couple of months ago. I'm only at Level 20, but man is it both frustrating and satisfying. On this playthorugh, I am being smarter about establishing sensible supply lines. Previously, my supply line map looked like a monkey drew a spiderweb. And instead of build...

Re: Hurricanes 2017

I went to the grocery store for regular shopping last night. All the bottled water was gone. It was kind of hilarious. A guy and I stopped to talk about how a municipal water failure in our Piedmont city was among the most unlikely scenarios, and what people really needed was ice and tarps. He said ...

Re: Hurricanes 2017

The 2004 hurricane season saw Florida hit 4 times including 2 storms that followed nearly identical tracks over FL, hurricanes Charley and Francis. Ivan was a cat 5 storm that hit Pensacola, FL. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2004_Atlantic_hurricane_season I had close to 800 hours of OT that season....

Re: Hurricanes 2017

I'm in the cone of probability at the moment, in the Carolina Piedmont. I filled up yesterday, but I plan to shelter in place, so I don't need surplus fuel. I'm going to put outdoor furniture away and have my tarps and tie-downs ready in case my roof blows away or a tree falls on the house. I've bee...

Re: Fallout 4......

I've been playing on Survival Mode for the first time. Damn, it's tough! I'm trying to learn where all the random beds and sleeping bags are so I can save. I just hit Level 10 after about 15 hours of game play.

Re: Thouhgts on a subaru???

My 2000 Forester is going in the shop for major surgery: it has either a blown head gasket or a cracked block, I think (was leaking oil and water when I stopped driving it). It's been sitting two years, so who knows what will happen. But I'd rather get a rebuild than buy a new used car.

I think that Affordashed might be the ticket. Pretty much what Hiro did on his land he mentions above.

Re: Tiny House in East Tennessee: should we build or go pref

Thanks for replies so far, both in-thread and otherwise. My reason for tiny/house cheap house is that my brother-in-law lives on the property in an old trailer that needs to be retired to a landfill. We are thinking, long-term, about a B&B/artists' retreat kinda thing, and in the meantime, he needs ...

Tiny House in East Tennessee: should we build or go prefab?

I'm thinking of having a tiny house or cabin built on our Tennessee property. I have a site with water, septic and electric already. So I'm trying to figure out whether I should go with one of those prefabs on wheels, for which I think mobile home rules would apply, or have something built from foun...

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

I made a momentous decision and skipped the season closer. Not even Negan's charisma could keep me going. I cleaned the kitchen and did dishes instead.
