The Egypt Crisis, what are you doing about preps?
 
Are you doing any preps or taking any extra precautions now that Egypt may go Islamofascist?

I don't know about you, but I figure gas is going up no matter what and if there's a chance to screw America, the Arabs will take great pleasure in it.

So, when I went out today to fill the tank, I also refilled my gas cans. I have three five gallon and two 2.5 gallon cans for a total of twenty spare gallons. I added Stabil while I was at it. I also marked today's date on them with a Sharpie.

I realize that's not a lot, but it's one full tank in our 4WD Pilot. That's a lot for getting out of Dodge.

Are you doing any extra preps or taking any precautions now that Egypt may go Fascist?

BTW, I went to a cheap gas station and paid $3.35/9 per gallon. :(

Enjoy that $3.59 while you can. This time next year gas will be over $4 with no intention of coming back down. :mad:

Unfortunately my plans have hit a bit of a sang. You see my Mr. Fusion model fusion generator, made by Fusion Industries, apparently does not turn household garbage into fusion power. :confused: Therefore my TJ will not reach the required 88mph to get the hell out of here! :(

I think that Korean guy in NYC may have ripped me off. :o

I spent a lot of today loading my new Cammenga Mags for my Larue 18" - Does that count as preparing, or just paranoid with new toys? :eek:

It's better to have it & not need it than to need it & not have it. I have a bandolier full of buckshot for my mossberg, it's a good conversation item but will serve a noble purpose when called upon :D

The hell, are you a ratard or something? :confused: It shouldn't have taken more than 10 minutes to load up 20 of them! :p


Speaking of Cammenga mags, I just loaded up 10 PMags with 223 and 458 today. I sure am looking forward to getting my Camengas in next week :D

i think we are over-reacting egypt has been islamo-facist for the last 50 years or so. all they are fighting over is which group of evil muslims is in charge.

CA357 01-30-2011 12:53 AM

Mubarak is a dictator, but he's one of ours. He has also been a halfazzed ally to us. If the Jihadi's take over, Israel will be in the worst danger it's been in for years and they already live on the razors edge. The Suez Canal will also be in their hands.

I'm sorry Jon, I disagree, this is big.

Just when there's already enough pressure for U.S. Naval strike groups :eek:
