New Year deserves a new thread, right?

We represent a newly-formed unit of Independent soldiers 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.

You are most welcome Sister! ;)

You have it worse than we do here in Richmond. 9 this morning. With the wind chill around 0. Figured today I'd drive the pick up truck. Think I made the right call.

Hope everyone is having a good week so far. It is Friday-Eve!

Pouring rain here too this morning. Perfect weather for the Big Suck. Just above freezing here so no snow at least.

Had a good extended weekend. Took Friday off and headed down to South Carolina for a trade show with the wife. Pretty cool down there for South Carolina, not getting above 45 and dipping into the 20s at night.

Planning a trip to Belize to help out at an orphanage that needs volunteers. Should be a good experience. Wife went once before last year to drop off shoes so the kids can attend school and relief supplies. Be good to get out of town and do some good for people who need it.

Thanks Sister. Just feel like we have a duty to try to help out those as need it when we can.

Sleet here overnight made for an interesting ride into the office this morning. Wish Virginians knew how to drive in this stuff! LOL

Supposed to be sunny and back into the mid 50s by Friday. Should make for a nice weekend.

Spent time in the saddle on Saturday. It was in the mid 50s and sunny. Sunday we got rain most of the day, though it did finally dry up just before dark.

Rode in today since it is supposed to be mid 50s and it was nearly 40 when I woke up. Next couple of days it is supposed to be nearly 60 here. Going to be getting more miles in this winter than I had thought.

Glad you had a good ride Sister. Had a good ride home yesterday. Was able to cut out a bit early while there was still plenty of sunlight. Made it home before dark and it was great to feel the warm sun on my face. Looking forward to the longer days.

Saw some spamming, but ignored it. Haken will eliminate it soon enough.

I see our spammer has been busy. Where is Haken? Save us Haken! You are our only hope!

Friday Eve and in a little over 30 hours I will be on my way south to Mexico and Belize to do some good works.

Sorry about the bad weather Sister. That must be that cold rain they are calling for us tomorrow. Ugh.

Hope everyone is having a good week. Finally Friday!

Back from the sunny Caribbean. Other than a rainy day in Isla da Roatan Honduras, we had a fantastic trip! Sunny, warm, breezy with frolicking in the crystal clear waters, and some good works in Belize and Cozumel. The only thing better than a vacation is one where you spend half of it helping out those in need and seeing the difference you can make in a community that desperately needs help.

Good to be back, even if it cool and raining. Hope everyone had a good weekend.

18 here this morning. Made for a cool ride into the office this morning, but I have plenty of gear to stay warm and there's nowhere I'd rather be than riding.

Glad it will warm up for you Sister. Supposed to get up to 44 here today. Supposed to be 66 & sunny on Sunday. That's Virginia weather for you! LOL

Friday! Weekend in sight. Hold out just a little longer troops!

So how was the movie? I like Sean Bean so his being in the movie has me curious. The trailer looks good, but mostly due to the flashy sci fi special effects. Have not heard any buzz about it.

Glad to hear you got a lot done this weekend and good news on the help getting the chicken coop cleaned out.

Fairly lazy weekend for us. Went to Virginia Comicon on Saturday. They misprinted the open time to general admission on their tickets and website which meant a 30 minute wait to get in. Then there was the disappointment that they advertised the event as being in two buildings when it actually only took one. Other than that it was fun. No Dragon Con or SDCC mind you, but not bad for Richmond.

Hope everyone had a good weekend. Keep Flyin' browncoats.

…Well, Browncoat1….
Like I said…the popcorn was good.
The movie…not as good as the popcorn. Had lots of flash and dazzle; but no real heart or soul. Sad because I was hopeful. Of course, anyone on this site is used to getting their hopes dashed. Repeatedly.
Again, for anyone who actually LIKED the movie, sorry, this is just my opinion and not an attempt to start a fight.
Have a good Tuesday.
