Preparedness Notes for Wednesday — March 11, 2020

Today is the birthday of author Douglas Adams (born 1952). He is the author of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy [1].

Trapper and survivalist Claude Lafayette Dallas, Jr.  was born March 11, 1950. The subject of several books and movies, Dallas had a “colorful” life. He was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in the deaths of two game wardens, in Idaho. He served 22 years of a 30-year sentence before being released in 2005. He reportedly now lives in the wilds of Alaska.

Also on this day, the Great Blizzard of ’88 struck the northeastern United States (1888).

March 11th is the birthday of the late actor Anton Yelchin (born 1989, died June 19, 2016). He is remembered for his portrayal of Kyle Reese in Terminator: Salvation [2], and as Ensign Pavel Checkov, in the most recent Star Trek movie series [3]. He died in a freak accident wherein his parked Jeep Grand Cherokee unexpectedly rolled forward on an incline, pinning him to a security fence.

1st Rule: Don’t Panic.
2nd Rule: Carry a towel

New revisions state that the towel needs to be Tactical Black and have webbing attachment points.

Since we are in a global PANICDEMIC it is definitely time to deploy a grayman towel
