“We’re only a teeny tiny region on the facet of the highway,” West stated. “We’re widely known, sure, but that’s lots of humans. Even if it’s the handiest 1% [of people who RSPV’d], it’s still a variety of human beings to need to cope with. We’ve never had to cope with something like that before.”
No rely on what the raiders try to do; West said she plans to have geared-up accommodations inclusive of open campgrounds, showers, and water stations.
