Zombies are awesome. Cut off the top bit, connect the legs and lower torso to a treadmill and generator and voila: free energy. But I wouldn't worry about them. Or about Ebola. After all: the world ended in december 2012.

The hysterical part about that is the girls wouldn't know you've been snipped so you'd just have to keep trying over and over and over and over.........

Re: Has anyone considered their Multihull as last refuge in Global Pandemic?

There is nothing wrong with being prepared and being self sustaining. It was one of the perspectives that got hubby to agree to my dream Through in some political unrest, virus and other unknown forces and I win!!!!

Re: Has anyone considered their Multihull as last refuge in Global Pandemic?

I don't really think that way, but I do think something like this WILL happen eventually. ... and may be better for the planet after it's done it's deed and past.... something has to control population eventually... and Humans cant seem to even discuss it.

Re: Has anyone considered their Multihull as last refuge in Global Pandemic?

It seems Jimmy Buffett brought this same question to mind when he sang, "I don't know where I'm going to go when the volcano blows"! Some are still puzzling the answer over a Margarita. I think Zee has the answer,- live at your best while we are waiting and maybe keep a cat for protection!

The problem with the CDC is that it is made of people, just like Soylent Green.

Re: Has anyone considered their Multihull as last refuge in Global Pandemic?

Well it seems the Mormons suggest/require members to have a years supply of grub on hand. So that is some pretty serious prepping.

But really, owing a boat and keeping it in fine nick and provisioned is part of the fun of life and joy of sailing.

So I fail to see the downside of prepping. You wear seat belts don't you? And they have NO real positive side effects as sailing does.
