Re: Re: The Rapture
My wife went to mass Sunday. The priest opened his homily with "Well, we're all still here, aren't we?" He got a good chuckle from the congregation. You should live every day ...

Re: Floorless Shelters and Creepie Crawlies
One of the GoLite Shangri-La tipis with an inner nest would do the trick. I'll bet the kids would get a kick out of that kind of tent. Somebody has a 4-person for sale on Gear Swap: http://w...

Yeahhhh, Some law enforcement personnel may look upon that as a deadly weapon and give you a free pair of steel bracelets and a vacation in the local county jail. If you want a staff that is...
