What do you do to protect your electronics, car battery, etc. from a massive solar flare
Since there is a lot of discussion about crop circles and a possible solar flare in about 48 hours that could affect electronics on our planet, what, if anything would one do to protect their electronic equipment from damage? If you buried your car battery in a hole in the ground (LOL) would that save it? Is that all you would need to save in order for your car to be able to run after an event like that?

Would parking your car in an underground parking garage save it? Maybe I will load my car with all my electronics Tuesday morning and park down below for the day. lol

Can't. Nothing will work. Might as well get use to taking ol' Bessie and the wagon back and forth to town to get your staples.

Ever read 'illuminatus trilogy'? In that book, the last age ended with a massive solar flare. Man made I think. Will be interesting correlation if it happens to us.

Beyond one's own mind there is no dazzling light to come shining in from outside to wake one up. If one recognizes one's own intrinsic State as pure from the beginning and only temporarily obscured by impurities, and if one maintains the presence of this recognition without becoming distracted, then all the impurities dissolve. This is the essence of the Path-namkhai norbu.

Why is there a legend about the descent of Christ into hell? The Teacher addressed the lower strata of the astral world, saying: �Why, by cherishing earthly thoughts, bind oneself eternally to Earth?� And many revolted in spirit and rose higher.

i have to admit that curiosity would probably get the best of me and i would want to see first hand what was going on. not a good idea. lol

if you were not prepared though, to sit tight for a couple of months, you would have to venture out. the other thing would be to check up on family, if my daughter was not with me at the time, i would do whatever to get to her. period.

Thanks for all the responses. It might be worth trying the baggie/foil wrap. At worst it wouldn't work. At best you would have a chance at connecting with any possible working radio transmission.

I guess I would want to have a working car in order to get to my family. If not, I certainly would adapt. I do hope that we don't have to go through this.

Solar flares will only affect radio, microwave and sattelite communications, no need to worry. (Thank the Ionosphere) An EMP on the other hand could destroy a few things.

 Quoting: Springsongs 226702

Not electrical wiring per se but any digital elex would actually fry themselves. I was forced to read up on EMP and the faraday cage several weeks back thanks to GLP. Basically very fine (heavy guage wire) metallic mesh (smaller the holes the better) surrounding but not touching the vehicle (think giant rabbit cage) with a hefty ground wire run to re-bar pounded into the ground will theoretically protect your vehicle's brain from the pulse. Whether or not this would work for CME's I couldn't tell you.

Folks think about this.... with 5 hours warning you should be able to walk out of any fallout or disaster situation with what ever you can carry on your back.


And, if you cant you will more than likely die one way or another. If the zone is larger than this --most will not want to be around anywho.

Humm, maybe this is why I have a 1969 Dodge power wagon restored as new, out in the back garage! Humm just maybe!

But Malu made a point! I maybe a target when I make my run.

So, I plan to be some where that I do not have to run when tshtf.

Prior planning prevents piss poor performance!
