05/11/21 01:13 PM Pipeline Ransomware Attack by Blast

Those of you on the East Coast have my sympathy. Your gas prices (when you can even get it) are going to be through the roof. Here's a good article on what happened and what's currently being done.

It attack isn't at all surprising. Similar ransomware attacks have shut down hospitals and even cities. It's one more thing you need to keep in mind. My brother used to be in charge of the IT security for a powerplant up in Alaska and he said back eight years ago they were attacked multiple times per day. I'm sure it's even worse now.

How to lighten your EDC?

Carry less.

Don't pack for every situation; plan for the likely ones.
Pack for flexibility rather than packing every possible tool.

04/29/21 02:05 AM "overdue" Earthquakes?? by hikermor


Living in SoCal, I am attuned to the possibility of the "Big One," the next big catastrophic earthquake in the region. often concern is raised that this event is overdue, based on the historical record. The article referenced above examines the concept and suggests that we are not necessarily overdue at all.

Of course, at any moment, shaking may commence and the theorists will go back to the drawing board....

My EQ interest is heightened by viewing a County hazard map which shows a fault line running diagonally across our lot. I have looked at the map carefully and I am pretty sure the fault is at least five feet north of our bed. Not to worry....
