If they are following you, don't go home... Pull battery from your phone if you can... or put it in a faraday cage bag (don't you carry one?) Then let your pursuer follow you to some out-of-the-way place you have pre-selected. And then you may have your way with them.

Faraday bags should be in every car today!

Cheers,

IS that why you keep a mylar/ metallic bag in your center console?

I find them all the time hunting elk. Mark them on my Garmin...just in case I need one some day.

Sounds like a man with a plan. I like to have a plan.

Dont put them in your Garmin though.
Or write them down and use a different GPS if you need the hole.
GPS tracks where you go. Probably always. So use a cheap one with coordinates plugged in, then chuck it on the hole after.
And never turn on or put batteries in the cheap one at home.

Not that I have thought of it......

Burner phones are your friend. So are netbooks. Buy at pawn shops with cash to ensure anonymity.

Am I giving away tradecraft here? Nah.... just common sense.

Even paranoids have enemies!!

Kempter’s Fire Wire

Barely noticeable in the bottom of this photo is FDNY's Ladder 118 on their way to the Twin Towers. Every single man on that Truck died trying to rescue people that day. They were literally heading towards their own deaths when this photo was taken. They knew this job was a big one. I believe they knew firefighters would die. Yet, they answered the call. If that isn't the definition of courage then I don't know what is.

To atempt to ease some of the sorrow of this day, I have a story from last week, at a fire station in Texas. We've got a twisted sense of humor. Once the laughter subsided from something that shouldn't have been as funny, Brent said...

"When Firemen die, and go to heaven, God says I have to let you in, but you people go over there. Don't talk to anyone else."

During my time on the volunteer FD, we had a portly guy with MR who had been adopted by the dept years before my arrival.
Jeff’s dad had ran out when he was young, so Jeff lived with his elderly mom and his alcoholic brother.

Every time Jeff was at the station when a call dropped, we would bring him along in the engine. All he ever wanted was to help and make a difference.

When we rolled out of the door of the station in the rig, Jeff would say “Let’s Roll!”

He loved that story of ordinary citizens rising up and doing extraordinary things.

There are no cat skeletons in trees.

From the Nevada State History Museum in Carson City....

“An exhibit on Nevada's desert climate showcases the museum's best-known preserved oddity: a mummified cat, displayed in the tree in which it was found near the old trading post of Genoa. "It's not a one-time occurrence," said Bob. "At least two other times since I've been here people have called and said, 'I've got a mummified cat; would you like it?' And I've said, 'No, we already have one. But thank you for thinking of us."

Damn nozzle-buddies think you know everything....

:D :ROFLMAO::cool:

Don’t you have a truck that needs waxing or something?

I’m outta here... just heard there is a new batch of maple frosted up...

Cheers, Sirhr

If they can micro-chip Dogs.....just sayin
And pigeons.
The neighbor brought his boys over Sunday to shoot some clays.
While were shooting a small flock of pigeons flew over and the youngest boy decided to blast on them.
It had a leg band with an microchip.
Haven't scanned the chip yet but I'm guessing it's a racer.
We've gotten them before.
