If so, is there a drawbridge across the moat and does said moat contain, oh, I don't know, live alligators?

Surrounded by water on three sides in Florida, so yes on the alligators, but not purposely so. A road with culvert, but no bridge or drawbridge. In response to your other thread, no cannons or mortars either, but I'm sensing a pattern.

I feel like this is a test to see how many people post without the relavant information. For example, I did not post in your how many people here own a cannon thread because I don't own one which isn't the information you were looking for and posting such would create clutter.

I wish I had a cannon or a moat, better yet both. Instead I have two dogs, a wife & daughter that can shoot and lots of friends to call for help.

Hmmm, is this a shot across the bow concerning the upcoming Real Idiots Of The Soros thread?

No moat.
But close enough to the river that it's a possibility when the river floods. I do have a canoe to escape...



"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

None of the above but a gnarly single lane road up a mountain road with only 4 houses that you can see. It's the ones you can't see that someone would need to worry about...

Depends on the severity of the storm. 300ft is water already

Yes I have alligators. Ol”Claude” is about 10+ft currently and makes a visit about once a week

No moat or alligators.

Instead my home is defended by two highly-trained house cats.

Now I really want someone to contact their city or county codes officer and ask about a moat, then post the answer back here.

No moat, but natural barrier consisting of a small river & lake for 180 degrees with a small bridge - alas not a drawbridge, but I'm sure be could destroy it if vehicle assault was expected. Smile A couple small gators in the water but they get relocated by the wildlife peoples.

Jesus all in, cannon, armor and moat I am out at least 80 grand. I just don’t think I can swing this. Can we do a commune type thing?

Yes I had to look it all up because....well because don’t judge me.

Live alligators? No, but now that you mention it they would be more effective than the dead ones.. I was counting on the smell to keep undesirables away
