    OY!!!

    OY! No...I'm not an Aussie. But Shug has me doing all these weird accents and I just can't stop me sef. (SEE!)

    I am a stormtracker for emergency management and the National Weather Service in southern Oklahoma. It's kind of seasonal work, so I manage a hotel at night. I've always been an outdoorsman. About three years ago, I quit smoking (three packs a day) and incidently gained an enormous amount of weight. So I have renewed my outdoor interests and commitments for my health. I have a large Columbia Cougar Flatts 2 with all the trimmings for car camping. But I have found through many day hikes....I like being alone in the woods. So, I started researching light weight packable tents. That is when I stumbled onto the wildest vaudvillian trekker I've ever made acquaintance with. So like many, Shug got me interested, and I followed through with my own research. I have decided on a Hennesey Safari Deluxe, (cuz I'm only a tater under 350)...and a mandolin.

    I recently found out that my 16 year old daughter, who lives with her momma in LosAngeles, wants to come stay with her daddy. So very soon, a couple of rookie hangers will be slapping straps around any trees of opportunity. I'll have many questions I bet, so I'm glad to be aboard.

    Don't feel about about doing the weird accents.

    Occasionally, I've been known to bust out a classic 80's hair metal song or randomly quote Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
    I have heard your confession I know who you blame
    If you had it all back you'd just lose it again
    Can't bank on redemption if you ain't saved
    Don't bring me your tales of temptation and loss
    Don't bring me the pieces of your shattered cross

    Love your name, I could adopt it many days. Welcome, there is a wealth of opportunity here to learn. Keep doing stuff with your daughter. Mine is 22 and she still loves to camp with me.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.
