I always park out of the way usually far from where everyone else is fighting to get the close spots. Like you I like to be on an end somewhere so as to have a little space around me. A nice ditch close by makes very nice cover as well. I have been known to park several hundred yards away behind a church to be able to have a shaded place to park and be able to leave directly instead of being routed through security, gates or slow traffic.

that's probably a good idea, but I'm like everybody else, lazy and not wanting to walk too far, trying to get the closest space -- guess that's not so smart, considering a terrorist would want to park close to a building to detonate a bomb

I don't have any other lots nearby that I could park in and have security gates, however there are no fences around the rest of the area, just some small hills and trees, nothing I couldn't get through if I wanted to.

The problem is, though, it's not just meaningless nonsense, it's a backdoor attack on our rights as Americans.

I assume the cat5 comment was a joke. Cat5 isn't very strong. I certainly wouldn't suggest this. If you consider you need to escape in that maner, I suggest you get a real escape kit.

I'm pretty sure he was joking, as was I. <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

When I was working on my long stale criminal investigation degree, my area of focus was radicalism and terrorism. And I shook my head every time I read things like "don't rally, might be a target".

To quote Sherman Potter, "Bushwah!" That makes sense if you are facing someone with a mortar or grenade launcher. With small arms, easy enough just to pot the suits as they run. Let the guys without ties go- power to the people, man! <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

IMHO, I'm more worried about a solid head count than I am about guys with rifles. If it is a blast, my concern is making sure everyone is out, and if not, finding out where they were last time they were seen, so when the fire crew shows up, I can give them a decently accurate report. If it is a bomb threat, I want to know were some of my people with bad hearts are real fast, and "Run and hide, there might be a sniper" doesn't help.

I am concented about secondaries, though. Pick a good rally point. Away from cars- to easy to put something small and magnetic, about the size of an altoids tin, under the fill hole.

But it's for our own good, don't you know. Which one of our (spinning in his grave) founding fathers said (paraphrase, I can't remember the exact quote) "those who give up freedom for safety deserve neither." Was that Jefferson?
