Cool start to the day but should be sunny and hot later. Yesterday turned out ok for us, no rain, no bright sun for most of the day. It was a bit sunny in the later afternoon. Hoping for similar today, but with a bit more sun.
Did my two pickups on the south side of town. Found a neighborhood I didn’t expect, with a very ‘out in the country’ feel, right in between the ghetto and the ‘hood. Big lots, old homes, real country boys… guy had a bunch of great older reference books on “rebuild society” topics. Lots of tools, and clearly enjoyed his hobbies. The other pickup was sort of “general merch” and is always good for some household item.
The pickup nearest to me was a heavy steel door for the BOL, a bookcase for D2, and some other misc. stuff for some other projects. Pickup truck is about 1/3 loaded, waiting for the rest before heading up this weekend.
And I’ll load up later, as we haven’t decided whether to head up tonight or tomorrow.
Before that, I’ll be spending some more time trying to get at least the expensive PTZ camera to work with the new NVR. Even at my hourly rate, it’s worth poking at it for a while. I can do some at home, but will really need to head out to the site to find out if I can make it work.
It would be nice to do some more cleanup and organizing this morning, but work slipped to today, so it is what it is.
I’ll be taking some more stuff to stack at the BOL. If the SHTF, “they” will definitely come looking for “it” for whatever value of “it” you like. If people are hungry, they’ll look for food. If jones-ing, they’ll be looking for drugs or booze. If it’s biggov, they’ll be looking for control, and we know what they’ll be coming for. Split your stacks up. Hide your tangibles. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. Fallback positions are a good thing. So is ‘hiding in plain sight.’ Harden your heart, and your house. Be prepared to degrade gracefully.
And stack, what you can and while you can.
