Re: More Stuff

Woo! My vest arrived, and as I suspected, the pouches are removable. I'll enlist my brother's help later to get a proper fit. It has attachment points along the bottom so I can attach a pistol belt or patrol belt of some sort, which is a nice feature. It'd be nice if I could find a decent hydrator p...

I'd totally forgotten about that song... But what about that movie with Steve Martin, where he has a long nose?

Re: Roxanne 2021-04-15-2021

Now I want ice cream... dang it... Speaking of legs, where's Digit? I got to thinking about her because I saw a video about assassin spiders (which I had never even heard of until last night), and now I'm wondering what she would think about them. (The segue being that Digit's a spider, and spiders ...

Re: More Stuff

Something similar happened with smaller cats. Shortly after people started storing grain, they eventually noticed that cats were eating the rodents that spoiled the grain, and therefore they would provide water and possibly more food. Though, really, this is more of a case of cats domeaticating them...

Re: More Stuff

Actually, depending on how I set up my tarp shelter, I could use part of it as a ground cloth. Also, one of the things I was planning to put in the videos I mentioned was to show how to spot signs that a potential campsite might be subject to flooding, and also how to make a proper trench around the...

Re: More Stuff

I actually have that covered: I acquired a surplus military issue self inflating bedroll for, like... $16? You unscrew the valve at one of the corners, and the foam inside expands, letting air into it. Then you close the valve again, and you're good to go! (Make sure to open the valve when you roll ...

Re: More Stuff

Yeah, as I said, if I add a poncho liner, which is something really good at trapping heat (probably a little more than the sleeping bag, if used correctly), I should be fine for an Arkansas winter, if I have some kind of shelter. I'm also going to try to find a bivi bag to use outside of the sleepin...

Re: More Stuff

I was looking online for something to use as a shelter that could be put in my rucksack (or attached to it), but the tents of the appropriate camo pattern for my area were sold out, not to mention having to deal with the poles, which would add a lot of weight. However, I managed to find a nice, mult...

Re: Happy Now 2021-04-08

I'm just wondering if she even remembers her Mommie, she was barely a toddler when her mother died. And the WMD just triggered the Walking Disaster, how many states do you think will be under the fallout? I remember the layout of the three bedroom apartment my family lived in when my dad was in the...

Re: More Stuff

I ordered a MOLLE vest earlier, and it comes with eight pouches with the Flecktarn pattern. In the picture, two that look very similar to the compass pouch the US military uses are attached to the vest, at the shoulders, and there are six large pouches that sit lower. I know I'm going to put at leas...

Yup. The alternative was to tell Atsali that if anyone tried to hurt her (Castela), they could very, very easily be turned into a quickly forgotten memory.

Yeah, but what if she liked it, and got one of her own? I'm sure Nadette liked it, if she saw it.

Wait what? No more dirndl for Atsali? Man... friggin' lame! That was a great look for her, even if it did draw attention to her chest.

Re: More Stuff

Yeah, but the issue is that I don't actually eat much during the week, because I don't have time to stop while on my delivery route. At the same time, I'm also sitting for most of the time I'm on the clock, which makes it kinda surprising that I actually lost some weight.

I wouldn't be able to lend my voice. I have a weird accent that is kind of a mix of a country accent and... uh... I think Midwestern?

Lots of info here. In regards to the funeral arrangements, the viewing is Tuesday, and the funeral and internment are Wednesday. Hopefully my boss doesn't decide to be a dick and make us go in when we need to do preparation for all of that. I need new dress pants, as I got a bit pudgier since my gra...

As I was getting ready to leave for work this morning, my mom informed me that my grandmother died this morning. My dad asked me and my brother yesterday if we'd be pallbearers when the time comes. Naturally, we said yes.
