    Now you have me thinking...see what you did???

    These movies always revolve around New York or LA because big cities are where criminals tend to congregate and people are crappy and antisocial in general. So where would you be safe on Purge night? Pretty much anywhere that's also a nice place to live. A Purge night in Lincoln, NE would be pretty uneventful, as would one in Gatlinburg, TN. Cody, WY would have no meaningful Purge.

    I'm pretty certain of who would want to Purge me.

    So if you ever had the chance to purge for the one night it was offered - would you do it? If you didn't want to participate, how would you protect yourself; where would you hide or go to feel safe?
    So I guess you don't have any shipping containers buried in the 'back 40' of your sprawling estate then.


    These days, I doubt anyone would care enough about me either way to send out their goons after me.

    I do feel safe in my home. I just don't think I would feel safe if there was a purge situation. People are weird. You never really know who you've pissed off in your life and who's holding a grudge, or who's just killing for the sake of killing.

    Funny you mentioned that...I've got a 40-acre spot that I consider ideal to install an underground SHTF shelter. Haven't found the time, money or motivation..but have thought about it.

    A shipping container would be pretty good shelter.
    No more splitting Uranium for fun and profit, retirement is cool so far....

    Nice deflection but we know you have one, you're just afraid the forum rabble will show up at your door when it's needed.

    LOL..tru dat. Howver, the 40 acres I referred to is not "here"...it's somewhere else. ;-) The problem with "here" is that you dig a hole, you hit water at about 18"...
