1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    Bring whatever, tent, hammock though limited hanging spots. Your own food and drink though will find we are a sharing lot. Bring guns, knives, swords or trebuchet. And as for naked, sure go ahead but know that you'll be naked and we will be afraid:11::4:

    Did you say "beach body" or "beached body?" Because I'm the second one. :26:

    SmilinJoe playing hot coal volleyball in a loincloth two sizes too small. I wish I never had that thought. Good God I got to go scrub my eyeballs with Comet. I may never sleep again because of the nightmares, it's like some bad windowpane.

    A Piecakin is a pie baked in the center of a cake. Last one I did was an apple pie in the center of a spice cake. I didn't get none though it seems I just turned around and it was gone. Might have to put it under armed guards if I want some but how can you trust the guards.

    Getting excited! If you need me, I'll be hanging out with @Jeffro and @Shnick. Don't want you to think it's only the food, though. The quality of the conversation and the knowledge they impart is unparalleled. The food doesn't hurt though.

    Wonder if @badger claw makes plate and spoon sheaths? Looks like I may need to have one available at all times. . .just in case. Boy Scout training is kicking in. . .Be Prepared!

    I'm in, please put all lettering of my shirt on the back! I'm special.

    And secure a VIP camping and parking spot for me.

    Do we need to bring fine china for the breakfast?

    Thank you for catering to my every whim.

    I'm getting ready. Building targets, loading bullets, repairing gear, tune up the jeep, built a new ridgepole for the dining fly, getting gear staged in the garage ready to be loaded and doing a lot of cyphering, thinking, scheming, conniving and planning. Remember the 7 P's (Propper Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance) and that failure is not an option.

    I'm kicking around the idea of going to this one.... I am also looking at the TN meet up in FEB2018 as well. IF I go to this one, you could drive here to Pensacola, park at my place and we could take mine over there, or you could pick me up along the way. Either way we could split the drive time/gas costs, etc.

    I'd have to run this one past my boss...er wife.... she might make me decide on just one of those outtings though....

    You may wanna PM @badger claw, he's got cows on the property. Don't know if that would make a difference but would be good to ask anyway.

    Bob you got a freebie last time you came to the HCBR with Dani. That was kind of like sneaking your buddies into the drive in movie in the trunk of your car.
