Re: Hurricane Preps

As with any sort of potential problem or disaster, it is so much nicer to not think about it. After all, if we ignore it, it might just go away, right? Irma was my first Florida hurricane. It was amazing to watch the last-minute running people around here did in the days before she arrived. I know m...

Re: Hurricane Irma AAR - Gulf Coast Florida

I am hearing the lights may be off in the Keys for months in some places as well as the Virgin Islands. You guys got lucky all things considered. Absolutely. Unless a tree went across lines or a water main broke, there was no real impact to infrastructure here. People are grousing at the idea that ...

Hurricane Irma AAR - Gulf Coast Florida

Posting this up as a basic overview of preparations for and experiences with Hurricane Irma's impact on my area (Sarasota, FL). If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to pile on. The potential for Irma to affect my area began to get my attention on Saturday, 02 Sep; about a week bef...

Re: Hurricanes 2017

I lost track of this thread for a whole week. Well, I've been busy. :-) AAR from Sarasota, FL: 1) We got damned lucky here. Instead of a Cat 4 coming at us from the Gulf, we got a Cat 2 after it beat up on Miami/the Keys and Naples/Marco Island. 2) If you're going to have equipment, be familiar with...

Re: Strictly Multitools

For my purposes at least, the Wave is the perfect combination of features, weight, size, build quality and overall design. The Wave is pretty awesome. It's their best-seller for a reason. They also make a tool called the Charge. It's basically a Wave with different handle and blade materials that p...

Laager, I thought about the book idea. If you do it in a collection of short stories format like we've had the fortune of getting them it would be interesting to get lil's perspective on them, whenever applicable. So your story followed by her version of it, that'd be comedy gold I think. I would p...

Re: Cheap and efficient method to make neat paracord ends

That is an awesome idea Towanda! We ended up needing to produce a fair number of finished ends for some scout projects and ended up buying an electric soldering gun with a cutter tip. It both cuts and seals the paracord at the same time. However, I think I need to get a couple of these and add your ...
