Been there done that in a Cat 1. We evacuated for Ike and where we went, so did Ike and he was a Cat 1 with the eye about 3 miles East of us in Willis, TX. Slides came in, power went off, genny came on, tree fell opposite direction of windshield. Not fun, not fun at all. Next time I'm leaving earlier, and going further.

Good luck to you all. I feel your apprehensions, I really do.

Stay safe.

It is but, driving the rig up that road is real tough on the fuel mileage!

My thoughts, prayers & hopes for the best are with all our members in the path of Irene. Please be safe & head inland if you need to.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

No need to flee.

Here in northern Delaware we're too far from the coast and too high for any storm surge. We'll have some river and stream flooding in low lying areas, but the most widespread problem will be trees and branches coming down from the wind.

I have a case of Moon pies and 5 gallons of RC Cola, so I'm all set.

When I went through Waveland, there wasn't anything left standing.

2X... You got that right. I went through Charlie and lost my home and my wife of 23 years. The house is insured so pack up the rig and get out of Dodge with your life. Anything over a cat 2 is very dangerous and you will be without power, water and shelter for weeks (if you survive). Get out now while you still can!

Like that shiny new truck. I've done my homework, went to the Township and looked at the flood plain maps we're aok there high ground nary a stream in sight. Talked to the campground owner going to help him tie down loose tables and chairs on Sunday am. They have down graded to a tropical storm. Batten down the hatches matey we're in for a hard blow That Mainiac terminology rubs off in times of stress

We are well stocked with Cherry Pepsi and whoopi pies mmmmm. Looks like we'll be fine. Putting our names & SS numbers in plastic bags and duct taping to our legs so they can identify us. Pray that all to the south are ok.
Double checked homeowners and we're covered for hurricanes

BE SAFE and don't take any chances. If there is any chance of high winds, thunder/lightning, possible hurricane get the HELL out of Dodge. You can come back later and help as necessary to put things back together.

Route 66 - our boat is in Summit North Marina on the C & D Canal. Hopefully the area doesn't take too hard of a hit. That marina is labeled as a safe harbor. We'll see!

We are north of there (SE PA) and awaiting 'our time' for Irene. We're inland as you but are concerned about excessive rain, wind, and area flooding. We are due to be hit by Irene late tonight and tomorrow. They are saying now it should move through and clear by tomorrow afternoon. Brought the RV home just in case we have power outages. At least we'll have a freezer/frig. We've never been through this before - only lived on the east coast 7 years.
