Re: I'm moving to Alaska.

please take chains, have a stove or other way to stay warm if the Jeep takes a dump. Buy an Alaska Milepost to see what gas stations are open in the winter, ditto for hotels. The Milepost also has distance between points. Take at least one 5 gal gas can, just in case. Temps today in Ft Nelson BC, fo...

Re: You're at work. Things go bad. What would you do?

I work on the 3rd floor of a 4 story building. We just had a 7.0 earthquake about 10 (air) miles away. I think this fills scenario. I happened to be at home. But after checking that the house was still weather tight (no broken windows etc) - I drove over to the DW workplace with extra batteries and ...

Re: M 7.0 earthquake 7.0 mi. NNW Anchorage, Alaska

When it rains, it pours.. Storm hitting town now has winds of 75MPH and rain - but by Sunday night we should have 6 to 8 inches of snow.

If you don't like the weather, just wait a couple of days.

Yeah HP I was thinking more like - Well crap, there goes 10 and 20 meters. I suppose I could put up a larger antenna try working long path on 80 - but that would make me an Old Fart.

Re: Volcano Activity - Alaska

Notable, but not as bad as the mass out migration of 1985 - 1989. Back then, Anchorage lost at least 30K residents - whole neighborhoods wee empty. Real estate tanked, banks failed and the only thing that kept the folks remaining afloat was PACE (think COSCO, but back in the day) - the first real Bo...

Re: Volcano Activity - Alaska

Most goods arrive in Alaska via barge or RORO. Air cargo is an important part of the economy in Anchorage. FEDEX/UPS have major centers here and are a major employer. If the air traffic gets diverted, layoff might occurr - and the economy is shaky enuf this could lead to an increase of the ongoing e...

300,000 displaced.

In Katrina, 600,000 were displaced - this in a much larger, in a multi-state area.

And Cali already has a bad housing problem.

Re: Community Gardens and YOU!/Also I need your advice

They haven't done so well here in Anchorage.

They will steal your food (homeless types)

Then they steal the dirt. (local jerks)

They can work, IMO, mostly in small towns.

Re: The Coming Civil War

I don't see a "Civil War" per se - that is to say an armed conflict between well defined groups. Please note my use of the word "Armed". It may not matter.... To be a bit more precise - James Fearon, a scholar of civil wars at Stanford University, defines a civil war as "a violent conflict within a ...
