Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

so it has finally happened. an actual pandemic has reached my little area of the world. Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, Amnesty International, various government organizations and other entities have been trying to contain the outbreak. however, the virus is still spreading.

a vaccination has already been created. however, fear-mongering by certain government officials and major news outlets have worsened the crisis in a number of ways. the roads are filled with cars attempting to flee; crashes and accidents have completely clogged up all traffic. landline phone switchboards and cell phone towers have been overloaded to the point that most messages are not getting out. some people are beginning to loot and steal.

transportation and information flow have been effectively frozen. what now?

enter the Hazmat Parkour Corps.

the local groups of parkour traceurs, including myself, have been training in first aid and hazmat techniques. we come from all walks of life, each bringing a unique collection of skills and knowledge. we will act as both messenger and parcel carrier for the various aid organizations that are mostly unable to enter the city. using unconventional routes typical of the traceur, we can avoid the confusion on the streets and carry necessary supplies and information to the people that need it the most.

we will act as messengers for all types of communication: aid group to aid group, aid groups to local citizens and local citizens to local citizens. we will be carrying first aid kits, specialized virus supplies, vaccinations and all other equipment. we will also be building setting up temporary centers in inaccessible parts of the city for the various aid groups, and then run them until the specialists are able to make it through.

each HPC member will be wearing specially prepared form-fitting hazmat clothing. we will also be carrying special informational fliers in several different languages, to pass out as we traverse the city. we have trained in morse code, and will be using our laser pointers to communicate with each other.

each member is completely aware of the plethora of dangers that await them, but put all fears aside in light of an absolutely necessary job.

Free runners will certainly be an asset of some sort in the future of urban life, either military, civil, or humanitarian. It is good to see that agents here are acting and imagining ahead of the trend.

I love it!

One question... how do you travel parkour-style, while carrying stuff like vaccinations and first aid kits? Wouldn't they get in the way and/or get broken easily?

i carry stuff in my backpack often when i practice parkour. fragile stuff would just have to be carefully packaged. for the case of something especially sensitive or delicate, the traceur would perhaps take a less complex route. traceurs go for the straightest path between two points, but time can be sacrificed to keep an important package safe.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle.

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
