    Hell, I wish I could be at home with my wife and kids. That would be paradise to me.

    For now, somebody’s gotta make the donuts.

    tomorrow I'm a gonna go out and buy ALL THE THINGS!!!!! but I'm also gonna have another serious talk with my Mom about basic safety when she's out... one use Kleenex over your hand when opening doors, carry sanitized wipes, shop off hours if you have to... etc. She knows all that but a reminder never hurts. Any other useful hygiene tips out there?

    There's a lot of thought surrounding an outhouse. For one, the ol farmer would put the log pile between the house and the outhouse. That way his ol' lady could bring a few pieces of split wood for the wood burner ever time she tinkled.

    I already had enough ammo and whiskey... hadn't thought about Gatorade powder. +1 on the hand soap... guess it's not "modern" enough for the millennials..

    I was mildly amused by the hoard’s stupidity until I went to Target to buy diapers and wipes. There were plenty of diapers but the wipe shelves are empty!! :mad:

    They gotta get “all the way clean” somehow I guess.

    The need for a sparkling bunghole in all this is perplexing. :/

    Wishing you all well during this time! -- A lot of people have a lot of differing opinions on it all, however the truth is, very little is known about the virus and no vaccine will be available for close to a year if not longer. It can never hurt to be prepared, make sure you guys do stock up on some essentials like food and water. You never know what ends up happening and it cant hurt having a full fridge ;)! Italy is still in lock-down mode and its been several days now......could always happen here and the POTUS himself said he isn't ruling anything out - including stopping travel domestically.

    Be safe guys!

    I got 200 Czech beers and 2 backpacks full of big blades and tomahawks.....bring on the walking dead.

    Basically.....I'm gonna rob zombies (see what I did, there?).

    Missed out on the TP, so far, so I'm gonna stock up on thick rolling papers so that I can....

    Travel light with 1-finger wipes.

    :thumbsup:

    Does anyone think the Los Angles police would have a problem if I started carrying this around on my hip? It's not a firearm after all... ;)

    Here, in Canada, we can carry a sword if it's not too short.

    You'll need to be able to convince the constabulary that it's a tool or used for food prep, though.

    More than enough ammunition? Check
    More than enough whiskey? Check
    Shitloads of TP? Check

    Sounds like a great weekend.

    best

    Suddenly I’m not a crazy person for having nearly 10,000 rounds of 5.56, firearmseseses, knives, freezers full of wild game, etc...

    I will not be amused until the rioting starts.

    All I know is, I can't get bottled water, which is a problem because our tap water is contaminated by everyone's leaky septic systems and it gives me diarrhea. Which is a problem because there's no toilet paper either. Stoopididy is a public health crisis spread the werds.

    The 3 days of rain are harder on me and the dogs than this virus. They need dog park time, but I hate dealing with their muddy paws and fur in the house.
