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.

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.

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.

Re: Fallout 4......

I've been having that problem and I assumed it was the glitchy mods. I have to eject the disk, shut down, power up, sign in, and insert the disk and then it loads properly.

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

I thought last night's episode was okay, but the fragmented storytelling is breaking the continuity of the narrative for me. I couldn't even remember the last time we saw Tara. Here's hoping they bring it all together soon.

Re: The creek has dried up

It's been really dry here in my AO, with wildfires burning throughout the region. I heard this morning that only a "named storm" would be enough to bring us out of drought conditions, and there is nothing like that on the horizon.

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

Trenches, earthworks, tripwires, hahas, towers and battlements all would be useful in the ZPAW. It's as if nobody in the ZPAW knows how to build anything or has any understanding of fortifications.
