Wow, Doug- that's not even a bad price! Even with the extra $200 for the tax stamp! grin

"Having two vehicles that are paid off"
I feel like this is a significantly underrepresented subthread of being prepared! Financial preparedness buys me a lot more restful nights than the pallet of ammo would.

the current situation really focused me on the number of friends that have pretty serious underlying medical conditions....a lung transplant and another just finishing chemo and radiation...COPD...friend's wife with LUPUS etc...

Well said, sir.

I walk down aisles empty of paper products and bottled water, and turn into aisles fully stocked with beer, wine, and ice cream.

People have the strangest priorities.

And if I have no tp, I am ikely sitting next to bathtub: grab a shower. Way more effective than washing my hands, and it's not like I have lots else to do.

Iíve started doing basic pistol familiarization via FaceTime for friends. While Iím certainly not loving that so many people I know are only now buying firearms, I am optimistic that I can train those who are coming to me on the three cardinal rules and prevent them from having an ND.

and if you didn't get nursemike's veiled suggestion a hand held shower wand on the stream setting makes a pretty good bidet...

Over time, I have used various expedients for TP. One of the best (and most exhilarating) is a nice big snowball. Frozen bidet??
