--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We represent a newly-formed unit of Independent soliders at the outbreak of the hostilities (prior to Du Khang and Serenity Valley).
First and foremost, remember that this is a fan-based organization, and our first rule is "Show up. March. Have Fun!"

Our inaugural march took place at DragonCon in Atlanta in September of 2007.

We do have a few rules and regulations that must be met in order to be considered as a member, including uniform requirements and weapons requirements. These will be outlined below. Please be sure to read over all the information and confirm that you can meet all of these requirements before applying for membership. We are not trying to keep people out, but we do want to present a united, uniform Battalion of Independent soldiers, and one of the best ways to do this is to look the same.

Got a bit of a shower here last night, but it amounted to nothing. A bit overcast today, and 40% chance of rain, which we really need.

Hope everyone had a good weekend and stayed cool. Hit 104 Saturday and Sunday.

I think we're having the same weather, Browncoat1; with the exception of the rain. Hopefully we'll get some today.

Hope you get some too Sister. We got a couple of showers last night and they are calling for more this afternoon. It broke the humidity for about 6 hours, but it's beginning to climb again. At least we are down in the high 80s instead of in the 100s so far this week.

RAIN! We got some; about 15 minutes of downpour and drizzles ever since. This, of course, after I'd watered the heck out of what's left of my garden. That works as well as washing your car.

I'd just love to be at SDCC, anywhere. I could see HK, Akin, and all the other shiny 'coats at the con, not to mention all the shiny and wonderful things to do, see, purchase!

Fairly certain I would not be camping out overnight for a panel that will wind up on a tv special, dvd, or on YouTube at some point. I'd rather spend that time with people I know doing fun things.

Thank the 'Verse for that fact! Big Suck yesterday took it up a few notches above the norm. Ugh.

Heat is back today too. So much for the cooler weather.

Glad to hear none of yours was at the theatre Sister.

Big Suck is behind us, but the heat and humidity have moved back in today. Heat index of 105 here.

Is is Fall yet?

Little cooler today; 90 degrees w/ heat index of 96. Tomorrow = 100 degrees with heat index of 111. *sigh*

Can I just hit the lottery, become disgustingly rich so I can buy "Browncoat Island" and move there giving up this life of crime?

I reckon we'd have a sizable amount of the 76th set up residence on Browncoat Island. Be pretty much a paradise at that point.

You might be on to something there Sister. Supposed to have 40% chance of thunderstorms late this afternoon and early tomorrow. Hope the rain will help break the humidity, if only for a bit.

Happy Friday troops!

Well, I would be happy about the grass cutting if I had actually had an opportunity to get it cut. It started raining as soon I pulled in the driveway yesterday. Rain again today. Not real rain mind you, just that damp drizzle that makes everything humid and miserable. Ugh.

Probably a good idea to avoid the baby skunk.

Rain held off last night and I got the grass cut finally. Hot and sweaty work, but out of the way for now.
