THOR #8860
Nashville

If you saw that news about some nit-wit blowing up an RV in Nashville on Christmas morning: some observations...
1. It looked to be several years old. This rules out an RVer.. Nobody would take years to fix build quality issues... and then blow it up.
2. It didn't appear to be Thor.
3. It was a Class C rig.
4. Early opinions seem to point to a black powder device.

Glad that the damage seems to be limited (mostly) to property damage. While there were some human remains found: I'm hoping that it was the perpetrator.

We truly have to make an effort to stop this and other terroristic acts to protect our way of life

Sad and scary deal. We truly have some mental issues in this country that somehow need to be dealt with

I hardly think the brand or model of the coach is the central issue in this awful Christmas event. Just saying...

Current updates indicate it may be a Chateau. As others have noted, it's not so much a concern as to the manufacturer - but how it's going to impact us as a family. Get ready to be treated as "suspicious" if you're over-nighting at Wal-Mart or Flying J.

I agree... Finding layover spots may start getting tougher.

WalMart and Flying J not a problem. Parking on the street for sightseeing or to get a meal will be the hassle.

That's what I was thinking. Unless you are in an area with a lot of homeless type folks living in ratty RVs, you will be suspect if parking on the street.

I saw on the news that the Authorities are investigating a "person of interest".

No mention of possible motive.

I heard mention of a bad case of paranoia aimed at 5G connectivity...

FBI says he was a suicide bomber acting alone. But why then is airspace over Nashville still closed with authorization to use deadly force on violators?

True, so true Pete’sMH. Who gives a flip-flop. It’s the horror of the idea that “we” are spreading what he supposedly wanted “to be famous” he told his $;&:&.

Not a laughing matter, but Walt died a few years ago and his meth lab was destroyed. Copy cat? Better call Saul. Sorry, but I live in Albuquerque.
