spinifex: I just competed another lap of the sun ... that makes 45.1 trillion kilometres traveled. Spinning the whole time at 1600 km per hour. Holy cow. No wonder I'm tired. And dizzy.

Tri-Polar: Didnt think it deserved a thread of its own. Ive been reading a good book with useful information lately. "The handbook, surviving and living with climate change". Information that is useful doesnt always relate to climate change.

doglover: Just watched SoaceX fly SN15 with a perfect flight AND landing! Pretty amazing accomplishment! The speed that Elon musks teams are able to develop and build these huge rockets is nothing short of miraculous.

Yeah, the railway station in the town I live in [no longer used but historical] burnt down in 2009 because of Black Friday. It's about 500m from my house, so for us, we are ever vigilant, especially on those 40+ days. We have a fire plan, we've got BOB's in both of our cars already, essential items near the door, the few items we cannot go without are readily available, the cat's got it's own BOB [lol] and I've even got a Jerry Can if we need fuel. If we don't have time, we can be gone in 1 minute in a two cars convoy [in case one stops working] at any time of day or night, there will be no looking back or second guessing, most things are left behind.
We have good escape routes planned, the most likely has farmland for a good deal of the way, which whilst might have grass fires is better than the other 4 escape routes [which have sections of forest], though with our phones and internet we're able to pick up more information and make the right choices. Our main plan involves leaving early and Urban safety is only 10-15mins away. It's really important to have the details worked out, it only took us a couple of hours and both my wife and I are confident and clear about what we need to do.
Since reviving old thread's, don't be afraid to talk to the local rfs station for local hints and tips, a defendable property will be more likely defended than one in the too hard basket
Lt. Colonel Hal Moore: I can't promise you that I
will bring you all home alive. But this I swear,
before you and before Almighty God, that when
we go into battle, I will be the first to set foot on
the field, and I will be the last to step off, and I
will leave no one behind. Dead or alive, we will
all come home together. So help me, God.
