Sopunds like you're looking more upscale/new but a cherry used Chevy Tracker would fit in the envelope.

Those little Suzuki Samurais are pretty bare bones, cheap, have a lot of aftermarket support, and are supposedly pretty good offroad. https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQTYcmnvKPfF_-fd8w0nRLMkNR7TXbeYggSWIUXNyS6lTSEAZgAqg https://encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ1gY...

Re: Cheerful little video

Would they really try to evacuate all large cities? That sounds like an almost impossible waste of time. Back in the early '70's I met the guy in charge of planning the evacuation of the island of Manhattan in the event of nuclear attack. I told him "I just crossed the George Washington Bridge at 5...

It's been mentioned before but A Canticle for Liebowitz is awesome. It's hundreds of years after the fall of civilization and those who seek knowledge of the ancients try their best to preserve and understand the scraps left over. Even while living in a world of violence and ignorance it's quite fu...

Re: This is a Test, this is only a Test...

In 1971 when attending Ohio State, I was sitting in my dorm room when an alert came on "this is NOT a test".
Turned out to be a flub but I had a spooky 10 minutes or so.
