Basically just got back from 3 weeks off work.

Week one was spent in WV teaching rising high-school sophomores how to do home repairs. My crew replaced porch railings and built a new 14x10 roof over the existing porch to prevent water from coming in through the door when it rained. We fielded 12 work crews this year, taking up an entire county center ourselves for one full week. It was our best year yet in my opinion. All the kids wanted to be there and were willing to pitch in for everything.

Week two was spent at the Barony Beach Club by Marriott down on Hilton Head. Sister and Bro-in-law have a condo there they inherited. Used an unused week from last year and one of their weeks this year to take the whole fam-damily on vacay for free. It was pretty nice.

Week three was spent catching up on a little paperwork and emails, and then heading off to do some light hiking in WV before heading to my folks' place for the evening of the 4th, the 5th, and morning of the 6th. Did Beartown State Park (beautiful), Cranberry wilderness, and Cranberry Glades in the Monongahela National Forest, and then the Falls of Hills Creek as well.

This week, I'm working all week, along with the next two. Then it's off to Williamsburg where it will be blisteringly hot for the week we're there.

With our record heat and over 750k acres burned so far this year, fireworks remain very illegal up here.  But I spent the 4th in Hermosa Beach and got to experience my 2nd 7.1 earthquake in 6 months.  I was something like 100 miles from the epicenter so just felt a little bit of a shake this time around.  I was happy about that.

Didn't really feel outgunned. We played 1v1 at the end, "speedsoft" style. The kids had nice gats, but were just terrible at that style of play. And even during the regular matches, my biggest gripes were that the hopup didn't seem to be adjusted correctly, and I had a  bunch of blanks due to the BB's not feeding correctly.

Indoor airsoft is fun, but the equipment is annoying.

A kid with a 98 Custom, a $30 aftermarket barrel, and a 20oz CO2 isn't really that outgunned compared to someone with a high end marker still today.

Airsoft? Pffft. I got wrecked by a ton of people with Polarstars when I had a JG P90. Even upgraded I was no match for HPA.

Ordered a new pair of JT Proflex's, my old ones were trashed and I threw them away. The new pair seems a little different, apparently empire took them over, but for only $60 they are by far the best bang for the buck and comfy. No way was I going to pay $180 for Dye I5's.

Played at a indoor airsoft field on Sat night. Pretty sweet that A. It is indoors which nice with our summers, and B. it is only 5 miles from my house.

I had a absolute blast, it isn't as fun as paintball, but it is wayyyyy cheaper.

That's a nice looking prosthetic there! Definitely looks much lighter than your previous model. I'm hoping it gets much more comfortable for you as the weight savings will definitely make it easier in the long run. Glad you're doing well!

At the Moment i got more legs that i can use !




I got a complete new leg(the one with black top) this monday. It still hurts like with my 1st one (area sitting bone).
The new test knee is called VGK-S (Very Good Knee - Short) itīs Specialy made for short legs. The System is working without battery, very small mech valves which are activated by Position and foot contact Zone are doing this job. The weight is less than 1kg(just the knee) and cause itīs Closer mounted to the leg(housing) you have also less Forces at the short leg(like grap a hammer at front against grap him at tail for example). Made in UK









The leg with the camo top housing got a C-LEG Knee(3rd Gen. newest is 4.) mounted, much heavier but it feels safer. But i Need to test first to be shure what knee would be best for me !!!


Mmhhh ... does anybody here know where i can get thoose Pants for cheap ???

glass rose. Lol. I was clearing out my photobucket account and saw that pic I made for this forum years ago. Made me laugh, then I saw this and laughed again! Good times. 

I was told by a teacher I would never be a writer as my stuff back then was likely just as bad. I had ADHD and dyslexia as a kid.

Learned to beat dyslexia over time, still have issues with numbers at times, but most people who know me would never know I have it. 

I write articles for paintball.media and do photography for them as well. Along with all kinds of other writing I do for my other jobs. So it can get better with tons of practice and work. I credit forums for helping me work on my creative writing abilities in a manner that was fun and yet also rewarding. 

Link to my latest story and pics.

It actually randomly appeared on my Pinterest feed. Who know show that algorithm works. I was surfing Chemtrail pages. Always good for laugh.
