    UPDATE


    EVERYONE: We need firewood. The more the better. Let me know if any of yall happen to have hookups for some firewood, that would be awesome.

    I think it would be fun to do a community meal on Saturday night - like a stew or something. Bring something to contribute to a stew, meat, beans, stuff like that. We'll throw it all together and see what happens.




    CONTESTS:

    All of these have cool prizes now!!

    Tomahawk throwing - First person to hit target 10 times or so wins.

    Fire making contest - First person to burn a string in half. One knife, one ferro rod. Thats IT.

    Chopping contest- Lanyards REQUIRED.

    Joke contest, funniest joke wins a sweet prize!

    Ethan suggested we could do a cutting rope or a cutting soda can in half contest. Sound fun?

    understood, they'll be on the streets in no time at all. Sporting events, shopping malls and checkpoints. It's all for our safety though.

    I tried to get a job with TSA but they're so ate up they couldn't even schedule me an interview for like 3 months after I drove 3 hours to portland to do their stupid test. they called me 2 months late saying they were still working on it and I told them not to bother.

    I think I got a line on a local job so maybe I might be able to make it possibly if I'm lucky maybe it could happen if everything works out and the planets align just right and we all hop on one foot while facing south and rubbing out bellies. lol.
