Summer Camping Invite
« on: July 19, 2012, 10:37:49 PM »
Just putting this out here in case anyone wants to join in.  A lot of us from another board are going camping next weekend (July 27-29) out at Lake Thunderbird at the Little Axe campground. 

One member is going to teach making a fire with a bow drill and I'm going to (we hope) demonstrate my solar generator build.

I know it's not a shooting event but I figured maybe some of you are into camping and self-reliance type skills.

Thanks for the invite---if I wasn't in south central Texas I'd join ya so I could learn about your solar generator. Two Wolves
A moral compass provides a basis for making decisions; an action is good or bad, right or wrong when viewed in the light of the individual's moral bearing. If no moral compass exists for the individual, then decisions and actions are made on the basis of purely subjective thoughts. This leads to "If it makes me happy, or makes me feel good, or if it's something I simply want to do, then it is right and good."

Too bad I didn't see this in time -- sounds like fun.  So how did it go?

Good time had by all.  I did send you a facebook notice but I guess you don't check that either.  LOL.  It was my husband and I and two old dudes.  Although we did not manage to actually start a fire (burn ban anyway), we did get some smoke.

Yeah, I get so much crap on facebook anymore that it is hard to weed out the stuff I actually want to see.  PM's on here or OSA are usually the best bet for reaching me, since I get an e-mail notice for them.  Hit me up if you do anything cool like that again.
