    Buckle down Irene, I am coming **pictures added**

    MAN, that sounded like one of Peachie's intro's . I am going to Coin Beach In Del. to meet Irene.
    She is going to clean the beach for me. Anyone else headed there? She is suppose to hit there Sun. at high noon. I will get there Sat at high noon and find something substantial to hide my MH behind, that is west of. I will probably spend the night behind the Home Depot near Lewis on RT. 1 and drive the short distance to the Inlet when the winds taper down. Well you only live once and at 74 I am pushing it.

    The same from here, too, Frank. Wishing you the best of luck with some very good finds.

    But Be careful and do not take any unnecessary risks too early. Those hurricane winds have an awful

    whallop.

    Again, best of luck and take care.

    Re: Buckle down Irene, I am coming

    I don't think this a very smart idea. Myself, I am leaving Annapolis for Bethany Beach, DE (about 5 miles south of Coin Beach) to board up my house.

    Folks! This storm is not on to play around with.

    The worst thing you can do is put somebody elses life in danger when they have to rescue you, because you did something stupid.

    47th, Some people lead very cautious and sedate lives, and then there's my style. I will quote him again. James Dean-"Dream as if you will live forever, Live as if you will die today." He didn't die slowly in a nursing home. He went out like a light! Frank




    Hay it's back! I couldn't find it last time!

    Go for it Frank. I like your style and admire your spirit. Just take the necessary precautions and have a back-up plan in case things get too hectic for you. Good luck and hope she cleans the beach well enough for you to do some cleaning up yourself. Keep us posted.

    Re: Buckle down Irene, I am coming

    I guess I have always been a little adventures and I have the scars to prove it. It's starting to look worse and my son tells me to wait until it passes. The big problem is the mandatory evacuations and road blocks. I might have to wait until the eye passes. If the main roads are blocked, I have two alternate back road routes already planned. They can't block them all. Frank

    Re: Buckle down Irene, I am coming

    I wish you safe passage and best of luck.

    I guess my perspective comes from the fact that I rental home 2 blocks from the ocean in Bethany Beach, DE. Basically the only thing protecting our homes is a dune. If you are not familiar with the area its about 3 miles north of the Maryland line on the ocean. Now check the path of Irene and see why I'm concerned.

    We spent all day yesterday putting up plywood on the windows. I will of course be on the beach with my excal, as soon as I possibly can.

    Again I wish you well and please be safe

    Re: Buckle down Irene, I am coming

    We have been watching trees go down all day, raining nice and hard,, big winds,, We lost power at 8:30 am so I am sure there will be no problems at the beach in Maryland,, We took all the power out of it here in Richmond! Good Luck,, Just a rain event there I bet.

    This news has come in now,, anyone who does not have power now( I know no one who has power here), will be very lucky if we get power back within 2 weeks. Yeah, that is good times there!
    Thomas Paine-
    "Government even in its best state is but a necessary evil," Paine wrote, and "in its worst state an intolerable one." Like many Americans today, Paine believed that government added insult to injury by using tax dollars in ways that were actually harmful to the public. "When we suffer," wrote Paine, "or are exposed to the same miseries by a government which we might expect in a country without government, our calamities are heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer." To Paine, "securing freedom and property to all men, and, above all things, freedom of religion," were the only legitimate functions of government. Americans generally agreed, and went to war to achieve this vision.

    "People whose lives are barren and insecure seem to show a greater willingness to obey than people who are self-sufficient and self-confident. To the frustrated, freedom from responsibility is more attractive than freedom from restraint. They are eager to barter their independence for relief of the burdens of willing, deciding and being responsible for inevitable failure. They willingly abdicate the directing of their lives to those who want to plan, command and shoulder all responsibility." ~Eric Hoffer “The True Believer”

    The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools. --Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)

    Re: Buckle down Irene, I am coming

    Hay, I use to listen to Paul Harvey Too! I am here at the inlet. It is locked up. ie No open parking lots. Everyone is parking on the sholder and by everyone I mean the 20 some THs and a couple of beach combers. One TH, oviously new, is franticly digging after a couple of minutes I said, let me check it for you. I ran the PI over the area and heard the sound of silence. I told him there was nothing there, but he continued to dig. I moved on. I found some junk and an encrusted object about 6" in surface area. May be pot metal, may be silver. I will conserve it after I return on Mon. night.I will do before and after pics. Tomorrow I will put in about 8 hours on the beach. I have tons of food in nthe freezer but I usually eat at a restraunt if they let me park there for the night. Frank
