    Not sure on this. While a hide-e-hole in the outer banks doesn't make much sense from hurricane stand point. From a zombie apocalypse or something like this, it does make sense. I'd be a little pissed if I owned land down there and they told me I couldn't go to it. A 20 bed hospital is going to be sending people out anyways, even on a good day.

    Well this Infantry 1SG sure as hell ainít going house to house or any of that nonsense and I ainít going to be sending any of my men to do it either.

    Lack of operational vehicles sure helps in that regard lol.

    You guys have to check the paranoia. It's been a pretty rough flu (and RSV!) season in my area this year.

    As in, lab confirmed, not neighborhood scuttlebutt.

    Some of the medical folks in the covid thread mentioned hospital workers having something several months back that didn't test as flu, but did meet plenty of covid details.

    Have you ever been to the Outer Banks? Growing up we went down there 2-3 times a year, my old man was an avid windsurfer and surfer. It wasnít all that long ago they got a hospital actually on the island. Before that, you either got flown to Elizabeth City for serious injuries or driven almost an hour away.

    Now I donít agree that property owners should be turned away, you should absolutely be allowed to access your property but I do think keeping tourists out isnít a bad idea.

    Ironically a humvee was stolen from a Texas National Guard unit already and there has been a reward offered.
    Some old salty E-8 is eating breakfast off of it and having a hell of a laugh

    I am very much trying to be rational & lucid about this..but common sense tells me this has been around for months now. Back in Nov, Dec, & Jan..way over half of my plant was out on a daily basis sick. We scrambled for an hour or more each morning just get enough people moved from one line to another to get production going. I personally know people who were extremely sick. All of that wasnt flu. As calm & so far unaffected as I am...I today give this about a 50/50 chance of turning into One Second After. IF we as a nation, or planet, are now hit with yet another virus/disease...or a natural disaster..and/or some kind of enemy military action...what Im sayin if one more BIG thing hits now, or a few more minor ones...I believe we are looking at some seriously here-to-fore science fiction stuff.
    Again- Im sittin here happy as a rat in a corn crib, and spiritually speaking, were I to die today Im good, so not worried about death for myself.
    But, while Im still a citizen of Earth I dont want to have to endure, or see my family & friends and fellow citizens endure, what all many think could happen.
    And gents..think of this...how would it be, now, today, if Killary were in? Bernie? Biden? Or their ilk? I really think about that, and I dont like what I see.

    Good luck keeping me from my legally owned property.

    Shouldn't there have been a spike in SARS and deaths as well?
