    I know that hurricane Harvey just passed, I continue to pray for all that it has effected!

    But to all my Floridan people (myself included) please be safe this week/weekend Irma is itching to crawl up Florida's ass... As somebody who live in Jacksonville and is fortunate enough that most hurricane just pass us by this one is gonna be a doozy!

    STAY SAFE FLORIDA!

    Keep them Tundras safe guys! Oh and of course your families as well!

    The aftermath of Harvey has everyone in FL already freaking out. I am in Panama City (NW FL) and all the stores here are already out of water.

    Get your supplies before it is too late if you plan on staying and riding this thing out!

    Spread the word.. every house in America, we need to make it a American thing to donate $1 for every major storm. Come up with " Go Fund America"
    It won't hurt anyone's pocket and with 320 million Americans minus the kids, they're has to be 100-150 million homes in America.. that's a huge donation from the country that won't hurt your pocket at all...

    I really pray this storm fizzles out or changes direction.

    Everyone in the southern coastline be safe and good luck.

    @CaptTyler what do you plan on doing with your boat during the storm? Obviously trailer it, but are you taking any extra measures such as strapping it down to the trailer, maybe adding some extra weight to it, etc.?

    This is my first potential big storm with the boat in the yard.

    I am checking on it constantly. My grandma is in town, visiting from Hallendale, FL (north of Miami). Her flight back home is scheduled in just a couple hours. Fortunately, I convinced her to postpone her flight for a couple weeks. I still have family in Hollywood, Miami, Doral, Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, and Boca Raton. Unfortunately, some are staying put and riding it out for work purposes... Screenshot_20170906-082237.jpg

    Stay safe everyone. I have a good friend who is an air traffic control officer in Puerto Rico. He says they are getting rain and wind increasing by the hour.

    It sucks that its impossible to appreciate the sheer rawness of these storms, due to the real life factor that they destroy in their paths.

    I hope people take the proper precautions and keep themselves safe. Material belongings are not worth the risk.

    Here are some pics from Rockport Texas taken today. These hurricanes aren't anything to stick around and see how bad they are. Leave while you can. Prayers for all those in the path. IMG_9360.jpg

    Unfortunately, some of us can't just up and leave. Wife and I have to stay until we are told we are evac'ing by our commands, which could be today, could be 12 hours before the storm hits.

    I meant if you have the choice to leave. I can't say enough great things about you and all those who serve to protect our great country.
