We had a clear shot out the living room window. Careful planning of details
like this, enabled our band's survival that night.
Toilet Paper Bartering
During the crisis, we knew toilet paper would be
worth it's weight in gold, so
we stocked up a plenty. Here's
an attempt by some sweater laden yuppie
to horse trade 2 bottles of Dom Perigion
for 1 roll of our double-ply.
No go. Sweetening the deal to 3 bottles of
Dom though, did the trick. Everyone has
their weakness, ...guess it's 3
bottles for the band.
30 odd 6 and 12 gauge shotguns. We were going to keep what was ours.
Ensuring Outside Communications
By planning ahead, we were able to keep our band's
Intel based 286 DOS laptop powered
during the crisis.
We had to keep the generator outside,
which of course left open a
small window of vulnerability.
Duplication of Defenses
Another key was to establish bulk-heads in different physical quadrants. Here,
we're preparing a protection fire on our Southern flank.
The television on the log pile was our video link back to our Y2K command center.
As in any crisis situation, knowing who's watching who is as
critical as the actual watching. And you can quote us
January 1, 2000. Mission accomplished (note red wrapping remnants of
our defensive shield).
