      K2 and I were just discussing this. We aren't even close to the coast, but this area ain't designed to take a hit. I was pierside Pascagoula, MS for Katrina. Mama dont play that shit game anymore.
      You guys are far enough away wind should not be an issue but major flooding and tornados is always possible. Let’s just keep praying this bitch turns north into open water!!
      It's the wind with the rain, the shallow root systems locally, and poor drainage due to clay based soil. Lots of standing water on the roads when it rains hard. Potential for ling loss of power. Not so worried about flooding, really.
      I hope so Bro - you just can’t ever predict what a Cat 4 or 5 path of destruction will be. As mentioned earlier Camille hit east of New Orleans and cut a swath all the way thru Virginia causing whole valleys to flood. I know cause my aunt lived in Waynesboro, VA and they lost everything. All I’m sayin is you just never know what one of these major storms are going to bring far inland with it where you thought you would be safe. BE SAFE AND PREPARE NOW EVERYONE!!

      Yes @Bill Martin, I have had the wonderful experience of Heather’s cookies that she baked for us at the luncheon at their home. The biggest problem was that a certain ss rider was in the way. Not mentioning any names but @Ross was there! I guess that is why he wants cookie supplies! What say you!

      Keeping a close eye on this one @Bill Martin. I have a plan to get out if needed. Bug out bag with food, water and supplies is packed. Putting my Slingshot in my trailer Monday evening. If it looks like we are getting hit with a CAT 3 or higher I will be heading west to Clarksville, Va. with my Slingshot in tow.
      stay safe sir

      You think Mitch is going to protect you?

      No. I will hang out at the Magnuson. I went thru Hugo in Charleston, SC. Never again will I make that mistake.

      Thank you Ross
    • Just for the record I got xtra bedrooms - fine Kentucky bourbon and cigars to any of you guys that get displaced by this storm if it hits. I need to pay it forward - @Spudinator put me and my bride up (in quite high fashion I might add) last year when we couldn’t get home due to Hurricane Harvey . Come on down - I’ll cook up a big seafood gumbo :thumbsup:

      To any of the Slingshot family if you live anywhere along the east coast:

      COME UP WITH YOUR PLAN TODAY !!!!

      I hope Florence turns north into open water still but tracking doesn’t appear so. Guys lemme tell you a Cat 4 ain’t no joke. I been thru 2 - Rita and Ike. For Ike, where my house is now, my property is bout 30 miles from the Gulf as the crow flies - it was under 3 feet of water and you could take a boat from there straight out into the ocean. For Rita - Oak trees bigger than you can get your arms around were snapped like twigs probably by the dozens of tornados that came in with the storm surge.

      I don’t intend to panic anyone - just if you live within 50 miles from the coast and your going to be a direct hit (especially if your on the bad side of the storm) - have a plan to get the hell out!!! This storm can kill you!! Be safe my brothers !!
      How do you think I feel right about now? Relief that Florida appears to be safe from the hurricane, but we're flying back East Wednesday for my wife's Aunt's funeral. Flying right over the hurricane and a change of planes in Baltimore. This could be one week I'll never forget.
      If your carpet has to match the drapes,
      shouldn't your trailer match your Slingshot?
