    Another member missing?

    Anyone heard anything from Ram Rod? Daily post average was high, then nothing for the last 10 days. Maybe he got burned out on the place and is taking a break? (It happens, I've done it elsewhere). Or maybe he went to Fl. to visit RetSupt99 ?

    Hope everything's okay with him. Man, you regulars really shouldn't take a break without letting someone know!
    Regards, T Bone.

    I wondered the same thing tonight, I also looked up his last visit date.

    It's weird.

    Is it possible someone from the "O" team has kidnapped them???

    I too wish they would give a heads up if they are going to drop off the screen.

    If I suddenly go missing from here, more than a few days, you guys will know something is wrong. Someone go looking for me!

    Pretty dull life here. Work, play with the kids, spend some time on DC.com and then to the gym for a few hours just about every night. I like my routine.

    I think that RamRod may be one of the people that have no power. We got hit by a major ice storm that left a third of the state with no power. His last log on coincided with the ice storm.

    We still have people left in my county that as of Friday, were told that it could be 4-6 weeks before they got their power back on.

    There was major devastation due to trees getting broken off because of the ice. Several thousand telephone poles broke. The problem is that many of these power lines ran through uninhabited forest and even the roads to them are still blocked. Some of the power lines go over bluffs and its a logistical nightmare to put new power poles back.

    It may be some time before he gets back on line.

    Wow, that sounds like the most likely scenario. Wishing him and the rest of the people of Arkansas a quicker than expected recovery of power and a normal life! Man, that'd be tough to go that long without power. Got to admit, I'm not prepared at all for that (getting softer in my old age, there was a time where a few days or more without power didn't seem like such a catastrophe).

    Hmm. Well, he's got over 6000 posts in 14 months, average over 14 posts per day. One gets sort of used to seeing someone that prolific. But if it's any consolation, it's good you're here and I DO remember reading posts of yours. Really enjoyed your response in "debate with myself".

    I've been wondering about RamRod myself. I just figured maybe he's working extra and short of time.

    The ice storm is a possibility. I saw the results in southern MO a couple weeks back. It looked like a tornado had gone through. The only thing that looked different than Katrina was that most houses weren't damaged much. Every tree for miles and miles was heavily damaged, as were most power poles. Many yards were completely full of downed branches. I didn't realize you all in Arkansas had another ice storm recently.

    Anyway, Ram Rod, hope all is well with you whatever you're doing.

    And, of course there's the possibility that no one really wants to have a paramedic show up very often. Granted, it's a remote possibility but it's there.

    Happy belated welcome back.

    Storm knocking out power or internet? Seems plausible. My mental image reading this thread:

    A slightly cold, but well prepared RamRod sitting at home or in his bunker, in the dark, gently stroking a shotgun. His body is littered with holsters and the various Glocks he owns. They are hanging off his body, IWB, OWB, shoulder, OC, CC, a few bulges in pockets and a baby glock tucked under his hat.

    As he watches, he is quietly saying to himself, "SHTF is here, and I am ready. If only I could write about it to my buddies on defensive carry..."


    Seriously, hope everything is ok and it is just a power/internet outage for ya'
