Abandoned Scouts? Probably a few of those around; some people wise up after a while.

Good thing you didn't go back home. Your kids will learn that you will always return and that other people can take good care of them, too.
I'm glad you had a nice, relaxing weekend. If I were the babysitter, I wouldn't have called to tell you that because I wouldn't want you worrying when your kids were perfectly safe.


I took 12 pounds of spent brass to the recycle center today and got $9 for it. (Sorry, Trez)

Winds, not to get you all wound up or anything but you really should call around to different recyclers for pricing before bringing it in. Those people will and do take advantage of you and can spot an easy mark when they pull in the parking lot. I just called the recycler here and they are paying $2 a pound for yellow brass, this is their phone price. I am usually able to talk them up another 25 to 50 cents a pound when I am there because ammo brass is very high quality stuff and I keep mine sorted and clean. I will collect all the brass I can at the range, separate out what I can reload (or plan on reloading in the future) and toss the rest into the recycle buckets. Its pretty good money. I also collect and sell other scrap metal, but the brass and copper I separate out because it is much more valuable.

Kinda like the zombie apocalypse. The hardest part for me will be hiding my excitement. I think that with the political climate, all we really need is a natural disaster or two to really piss people off.
When i lived in midtown Memphis, we had one buddy in our circle of friends with a lifted Bronco; our plan was to meet at his place to escape the ring of 240 that would trap everyone in Midtown. Of course, my third floor 1920's era apartment would have been a big pile of bricks. After going through the power outages of "hurricane Elvis", i would shudder to think about the craziness of all those people trapped in Memphis.

I often think about the 240 loop around Memphis being a containment barrier if Marshall law were enforced. Other cities have the same loops. Portland has 205.

Well before i left, they had installed cables to keep the overpasses from collapsing onto the loop, but they didn't seem to be designed to keep the overpasses working (not without a good 5 foot drop-off on each end). We got to the point of scoping out decent crossing places with few or no K-rails. IIRC, down by Getwell was one good spot.

I had some friends who would've starved sober, if i hadn't been bringing back trunkloads of ice, beer, and taco-bell everyday during the power outage. If you are going paycheck-to-paycheck, and a tree crushes your car and the house you are renting, you could be in deep doody.
