    Things getting interesting with TD 13 and 14 Looks like this hurricane season may be about to get really interesting, as if 2020 hasn't been special enough already. I'm sure many folks on here are watching what's rolling off the coast of Africa very closely. Y'all be safe!
  2. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    Hey all, I am getting ready for a few days without power here in middle GA and heat after the storm may be one of the concerns. I made a video a while ago on historic home cooling methods (i.e. how to maximize air flow via windows, window coverings, things that will help during an emergency)...
  3. Manmade and Natural Disasters
    My reason, as well as probably many others, that I don't evacuate during hurricanes is simple. I can't think of anything that would patiss me off more than some uniformed punk public servant telling me I can't go on my own property. I used to live only 1/2 mile from the Santa Rosa Sound but now...

  10. Urban Survival
    First off, this is not my experience I found this story on another forum... I found some people on here asking the question of "do I head to the hills and not return?" or "do I stay in the city?" or "do I temporarily relocate and then head back?". This story may offer some answers...

A little back ground on myself.....some of you know me from other forums but that is beside the point. I...
