    I can relate... ever notice how "narrow" your seat feels as you approach the first curve.

    OM said: I think it was Mr. Dylan that said “You don’t need a weatherman to tell which the wind blows”.

    I believe that was a reference to the ‘weathermen underground’ during the 1970s, not weather forecasting. The “wind” was a reference to the WH decisions regarding the Viet Nam bs and domestic responses to anti war protests.

    I'll take "Montana" and "warm" then.

    The last time I was within sight of Boise it was 106 and we turned north and headed up hill to Stanley. That was probably inn July though. I do know it was a lot cooler in Fargo than Boise.

    We drove to Great Falls today. Went to Malmstrom, AFB to go to the commissary and also went to a Farm and Ranch store called North 40. 55 degrees, sunny with light winds. The good news is that a second North 40 has opened about a half mile from the Expo Park rally site. These are huge stores that carry just about everything one could imagine.

    Rural King is the Midwest/Mid-Atlantic version. Thankfully, they seem to have a policy of repurposing vacant "Big Box" or mall anchor store locations. That's a big benefit for the communities saddled with these hulks.

    On a slightly smaller scale, Alpine, Texas had an Alco store until it folded. Then it became a Shopco Hometown store until they folded. Then it became a Tractor Supply store which is a huge improvement over either of the other two and is more likely to stay in business too.

    Well, when the apocalypse comes I am going to barricade myself in a North 40. They have everything one could ever need in there to survive for several years. Of course, I'll have to eat prepper rations or what I can grow. What they do not have can be fabricated with what they do. They are, like everyone else, short on ammo, but I can bring my own, if I have to, I guess. Bet Fargo does not have one.... Great Falls has two.

    I guess that rules out Fargo for the time being.

    TS is not nearly big enough to survive as a holdout when the SHIF. I'm with akbeemer that a place like North 40 is what's needed. You will need lots of supplies and a defensible perimeter.
