I have a sense that something is going to happen because we are overdue for a large earthquake in southern California. Quakes have been on the uptick for the past few years. Whether or not others have a sense that there could be other man-made disasters is another point, that when brought up seems to illicit nasty responses, so I didn't want to got there. As it seems, there are some on this forum that seem to take pleasure in attacking others for believing differently and I didn't want to provoke that.

What is interesting to me, and I will use it when we head out on our great adventure, is how people cope with storage and what kinds of foods people have amassed. Be it for disasters or extended voyages, it's all the same.
