Little Wan beat me to it. I was going to say this reads like a RR that Mad Max would write.

I'm guessing if your list went on, it would be:
- Water
- Fuel
- Food
- Hot Spring

Great pics and report.
I'm sure when INEL, INEEL or INL or whatever its called this year overheats, that this is what it will look like!
Don't tell Tony that the prevailing wind will light up IF for a few thousand years!

Pretty cool pictures and story line. Best of luck in your search for fuel, considering untreated gasoline starts going bad after only 30 days. Below ground lasts longer but still breaks down. It would take a lot of stabil to keep it fresh enough to last. I keep looking for the diesel motorcycles we used in the military. They are very few and very far between. They got 100mpg, and if I remember correctly were KLRs. Never got to ride one personally, but you searching for fuel made me think of them. Diesel fuel will last forever, so will two stroke fuel. Just sayin....

Diesel fuel does not last forever http://withyou.cenex.com/blog/how-lo...e-diesel-fuel/

Neither does two stroke fuel (fairly pure gasoline with 2 stroke oil pre-mixed in)--2 years opened 5 years unopened shelf. life http://www.forestapps.com/articles/two_cycle_fuel.html

Sta-Bil also has a shelf life. 2 years for an open bottle, recapped and stored in the dark. Longer for an unopened bottle, but still not indefinite. I think the best before date on some marine grade Sta-Bil I bought was about 3 years.

As we don't know what year in the future Questor's apocalyspe took place (clearly it has not happened yet) and he is frequently, albeit with some effort, still acquiring sufficient fuel to keep his XRR running--one could assume that prior to the big disaster mankind discovered a wonder preservative to keep gasoline fresh for an indefinite period, that was added to all the global gasoline supplies prior to the disaster. Or maybe a way was found to convert gasoline engines to an entirely new fuel that does not spoil in storage? He specifically mentions fuel--not gas, gasoline, petrol, benzin or essence.

The bikes you mentioned were based on a KLR chassis. There are also several more models of diesel bikes out there.

I'm really enjoying the RR so far, points for originality!

Love the theme.
Irony is that just minutes before reading this I was watching a mutant bug movie from the 50s and thought "I wonder how many of those facilities were still around and if they had appropriate warning signs etc"

Rock on Q
