08/27/16 11:12 PM Hurricane Checklist by wildman800

We are now assuming HurCon 4 in South Louisiana. We're making preps to either stay or evacuate at this condition. We've already determined that this would be a great time to visit a handicapped theme park outside of San Antonio, Tx

08/26/16 07:14 PM National Knife Day? by Bingley

Apparently it was the National Knife Day on August 24, just two days ago. I'm not sure who comes up with this sort of stuff, but I won't think too hard about it, since I like knives. Why don't we have a show/tell about your favorite knives?

My favorite knife is a Japanese santoku kitchen knife. (Sorry, no picture handy, so I can do only the tell part.) It's plain and it isn't some expensive designer knife. But don't let that deceive you. It holds an edge really well, even after decades of use. I find it a true pleasure to cook with this knife. It's small and light, and so sharp that cutting up veggies is effortless. The knife almost feels like an extension of your hand. Sometimes I cook just to use that knife more!

What's your favorite knife?

08/26/16 01:51 PM New Zealand Incident by hikermor

Just ran across this: www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/hiker-describes-harrowing-30-day-ordeal/ar-BBw5g5m

Couple hiking a multi day trip- bad weather - he slips and dies - she finds hiking hut and stays for a month until relatives back home realize she hasn't been heard from - search finds her.

Same old lesson - Let someone reliable know your itinerary - maybe carry a PLB

08/23/16 07:55 AM Germans told to stockpile food, water etc. by adam2

A formal announcement is expected in the next day or two, but the information has been widely "leaked" and published in MSM.

Very sensible advice IMHO, but most unusual in peacetime. I cant read German, and different translations into English differ a little as to whether citizens are REQUIRED to stock up or merely advised to so do.

No neighbouring nations have issued similar instructions, which seems a bit odd, do they expect the disaster or emergency to stop at the border ?

Do we have any German members on here who can comment in detail ?

A bike can increase your distance, carrying capacity -- and is a good workout. What do you look for in a nice cargo bike?
