    :D:D and Seatle has gone up in a fireball. There is a quick rumor that LA and San Fran has gone too. Just then there is a loud far off boom and EMP has shut down all electrical including vehicles. What ya going to do??:laugh::laugh:

    Think of how good this will be for tourism in Portland! Now when people want to experience the west coast without getting radiation poisoning and growing a third ear they will all come here. It should be great for Oregon's economy. :D

    Also, all the refugees from the neighboring states will help the housing market out of its dip. BUY PROPERTY NOW. Your house has suddenly doubled in value.

    Here's a better one. You are watching the news, and a missile contrail has been spotted off the coast of LA. There is some debate over what it actually is, and the Pentagon isn't really giving out any info. What would you do?

    I've done a lot of reading about EMP stuff, and the like. Vehicles and EMP... At any rate.. some quotes...

    Don't let EMP conditions scare you about your vehicles.. I still have an old VW with zero electronics in it minus the radio and the blinker flashers and after getting a 2k TDI, I figured it was time to read about it.

    I have much more worry about my CBs and other communications equipment, than I would about my vehicles.

    Well first off if the vehicle/engine isn't running EMP will have no effect. I guess I'd have to check my generator to be sure it was topped up on oil ( need it to run the well pump) and then check which way the wind was blowing. Would this have an effect on Portland's new gun regs???

    ^^

    See above.. Even if it was running, it very likely would have no or little effect that would require driver intervention..

    I'm going to go outside and try to catch the next one that is going to hit Albany. I hate to burst your bubble but Albany is a prime target with Oremet and Wahchang along with Both casting companies that cast titanium parts for various planes and such.

    I'm well versed on trails.. I wouldn't be doing much pavement driving in that situation tbh. (With my truck anyway, not the VWs)..

    In the end. Not sure exactly what I would do, or where I would go. Only that silly people in their cars would not stop me from going where I wanted to go.
