Well... after I finish the case, and then ship my doglock and gear, (I'll e-mail Sgt. Johnson with alla the shipping information this afternoon) Finish a pizza box and add toes to the "Wild Thing" mascot, then make a case for my laptop, clipboard, pens and drawing stuff...WaRsh a load of cloths, and pack everything for Vegas... "whew..." This is going to be one fun filled action packed week....Then after Vegas, I get to go play Buccaneer... YAY.... :angry:

Well I shipped everything... $105.15... ouch, but I can carry some of the gear with me when I return on the plane, so shipping everything back wont cost as much....

That's why I didn't want to ship my medical stuff down to the fort for PiP this year - it cost me $65 one way in 2008. (Fortunately Michael brought it down. Unfortunately, after all that trouble, I hardly used it.) I'm just going to bring a few things to this event. Probably bandages, my bone saw, a couple of forceps and maybe the small syringe. (The big one stays at home as this seems to be a more serious event.)

All right, starting to get excited now (or just tired) spent most of the day going through me camp stuff ,bottles, spoons and the usual things to make the weekend enjoyable

its a busy week,tuesday load the truck, pepper jelly and hot sauce for farmers market on wednesday then unload and load back up thursday for searles

so far the weather is looking good mid to upper 30s at night and mid 60s during the day but that WILL CHANGE and at night we should get the last half of the full moon

so all you folks up north get out of the snow and come on down .

another great event in sunny FLA

I've been to Vegas a buncha times, so it's no longer a big deal....But Searle's should be fun......

Wife and I rolled into home last night at about 1:00 AM. Had a blast. There are a lot of reasons why this is probably my favourite event!

I too miss all of you, and wish these weekends could last longer!

Pics to come!

My thanks to Sgt. Johnson, his lovely and talented wife, and all those who put in so much time and effort to carry off a top-notch event! And my admiration to all those who travelled vast distances to be there. I used to think nothing of driving 12 hours to an event, but now the two hours to St. Augustine seem like a Yawning Gulf.

Ah, to be young again!

I'm. So. Tired.

But I will get the pics up later.

Maybe after I knit some.

Cause Jessi taught me how to purl this weekend.

I love my wife.
