The plan

News


OK. Now that the major storms are gone, it's time to discuss the things that need to be discussed... getting the heck out of this place.

With all the setbacks and delays, I have to admit, it's looking pretty bleak on getting out of here before November 6th, but, hope still exists, and I'm hoping (no pun intended) to be out of here with time to spare.

Currently, the plan is for the guy I'll be staying with to come down here, pick me, Athena, and my stuff up, and drive back to the Minneapolis/St Paul area, with the stipulation that I cover the cost of fuel, which we estimate to be about $200. I also have to get Athena checked out by a vet before she is allowed to enter the city limits, and that bill is looking to be about $135. Sure, that means I gotta scrape together about 335 bucks, but let's not forget that if I want to survive, I gotta leave here with a bit more in my pockets on top of that. Ergo, at minimum, I need to scrape together a minimum of $550 bucks before I leave.

So... how to reach this goal? Well... I have my old computer which I can still sell. As it sits right now, I'll sell it for $200+shipping. Upgrades will cost extra, both for the parts, and for the time, but that will be dependent on the buyer. If you are interested, please leave a comment, note me, or message me on Skype about it, and we'll talk more about it.

I'm obviously still open for commissions if anyone is looking to help that way, and I'll be getting around to posting more adoptables once I get around to them, so, there's money to be made... I'm just gonna need you guys to help me make it.

With any luck, the money will come in without a problem, and within the next couple months, I'll be out of here, and someplace new where I can finally start my life rather then live in limbo. Seriously guys, Arkansas is a dead state. I don't care what anyone says. Its economy depends on farming, and I'm not a farmer. Many of the people here are just to stuck in the 19th century mindsets, and just won't catch up with the rest of the country. And on top of that, there are just too damn many severe weather threats for my taste. I don't know what it is that makes people decide to live in Tornado Alley, but... there has to be something seriously wrong in the brain pan to think that a Tornado won't hit where you live. And it's pretty bad when the only reason people get something to warn them... is when there's a TV special going on.

Seriously guys, I've priced the NOAA Weather Radios... they're less then $30. The apps for your smart phones are free. There should be no reason people get killed by tornadoes when you have days notice of severe weather impending, and up to 30min notice to seek shelter. And I hate to say it... but praying that the Tornado won't hit you... isn't going to stop it. They are inherently unpredictable... and the sooner people accept that, the more lives that can be saved.

Enough of me ranting...

Hopefully... I'll get out of here soon. How soon I'll be able to get out, is on all of us. If you want to see me get out of here, don't hesitate to drop me a commission, or talk to people who might be interested. The more people who help, the better.

Tank out.
