LOL 

I had been wondering how your little bunker had been coming along. Thurs I'll be getting my M&P15 out. This check I was able to get a 5th working day plus 8 hrs holiday. Originally was off 3 days but told the boss lady we had no coverage thurs in our depts. With a $319 bonus plus extra holiday pay it'll be a nice check.

Our outpost is hosting a Dad's n Lad's over night event.
They rented a retreat facility and will have all kinds of neat events. Kind of like a mini pow wow with cabins. Fireworks, shooting, climbing, hi ropes course. Great meals.

My work at this time of year has me working. 7 days a week. 5 Colleges in Springfield. The hand held phones are a great entertainment data but when it comes to getting the work done. many prefer a data connection and a laptop for term papers and college work. So I am working extra.

I have only attended 2 of these Dad's n Lad's in the past 8 years missing the last 6. I hear great reports from them.

My preferences is to get away from man and his buildings when we leave the walls of the church but there are many folks in Rangers today that don't like to camp. So this is as close to camping as they can get.

It's a hi caliber event. The weather is beautiful here and I know they are having a great time.

Off to work I go. Hi Ho!

That would be sure death of a church scouting program.  Last nail in the coffin type thing.

The adventure begins when we leave the walls of the buildings.  Yet some have not realized that yet.

I remember our Territorial Rendezvous.  Spent almost all of it the buildings.  It just has no spark for me when we do that.  I would rather be at home on my couch when it comes to staying inside.

This will be a sectional event no patch. I do a couple lock-ins a year at my church and they draw heavy attendance.

When the sectional cmdr took over we had been doing a pow wow and section wide lock-in as separate events. He said lock-ins never did well in his old section but now pow wow is going to be a lock-in... Shouldn't be a pow wow. We haven't even had a face 2 face meeting of the staff so I never did a newsletter. I'm losing my spark I had when coming on staff. We're still going to do a outside council fire. One good thing about it.

Did you hear that squeak of the boards as that last nail was driven into that box they put Rangers into? It's a odd box. One size fits all. Looks a lot like a coffin. It's dressed up real Purdy and it's comphy.

We don't call our sectional events a pow wow. Pow Wow is reserved for the District Big camp of the year 4 days.

We do a lock in for Ranger Derby crafting in January and FCF Winter outing now is a lock in..but both of these are Crafts with tools and the weather most often is cold-wet and for most tis better inside.

Now for the other 8 months of the year that are not to hot or too cold... taken them boys and girls outside and watch that RR program grow.

We still call our district winter event, "Winter Camp" with dorm option or camp outside. Here and in Potomac we call the annual camps pow wows for both section and district.

Wow. I have 17 names in the hat for AR's this year. It would be great to have half that number. After being off for a month. Some of those boys have moved to youth ... errr um I know I would have if she was in youth...GRIN! Then again...I would have tried to do both if possible. I have a few doing that right now.

It's good to get back to work in Rangers. Printed off 17 Quarterly point forms. Information forms, Calendar for each of them and Patrol Job listings. Will do recruit training and FCF practice the next few weeks.

Yep! I've always seen that as a quandry of the System.

When a boy starts the transition into manhood, it's hard to compete with pizza & girls.

I know that some outposts have Rangers (or the Expedition Rangers) on a night different than Youth Group.

I don't think that our church & town (population about 3,200; with about 10 or more churches) could support having them on different nights.

We have been trying a different night for older AR/ER with limited success. We'll try again this year.

Even with a population of 70k plus Elyria and Amherst a third night has to compete with sports. Hey, even Wed nights loses out to sports.

Tonight was Youth Focus night. Our youth pastor preached a good message on belonging. That we all belong to the body of Christ. He touched on some of us not feeling like we belong anywhere. His message spoke to me.

Saturday at 4:35 pm my Dad went into eternity.  God was good to him and us.  He went quickly after being sent home with brain cancer.

He did not suffer and the family was present when he breathed his last breath in this mortal life we live.

I am so thankful that I was able to lead him in the sinners prayer a few years back and heard him confess Jesus Christ as Lord and savior.

His visitation is Wednesday  night from 5:30 pm to 7:30 p.m. at Green Lawn North on North National in Springfield, MO.

His funeral is Thursday morning at 10:00 am.  

He will be buried south of Lebanon at McBride cemetery near his family.

Knowing and believing with all my heart my Dad is in a better place than you and I is a wonderful heart lifting belief that I am thankful to have.

Many of you sent prayers and emails and calls and thank you for those.  

Our God is a loving, caring God.  

My dad worked with me on plumbing the Big Shower house at the RR campground he also came up a few times to open up for Pow Wow.  Those days are a found memory for me.

Nothing better than working for the Lord.

Blessings to you and your family.

My condolences to both you and your family, will keep your entire family in prayer.

I've come to the realization lately that we are actually all the matrix. At first I thought about pulling a "Wilderness Family" style exit and going to live in a remote area, but then I probably wouldn't have Internet communications and wouldn't be able to hang out here. There's not really a way out of the matrix without an extreme action...

I figured I'd post a couple pics from this past weekend and fill you in on Jr's progress as we re-enter the racing world. I'm pretty stoked about his progress, but can't post to facebook because I'm "friends" with some of his competition and don't want to show our hand before we go to the Grand National Finals at the end of October at Barber Motorsports Park.

We went out to a local track that runs it's own stand alone series so Phillip could get more seat time on the new bike. We had no goals other than having a good time, and increasing his confidence at this new level. We ended up the weekend with 3rd place finishes in two different classes!! He is really coming along.

I took my real camera this past weekend, so I was able to reach out and get some good pics. He was cookin'!

He made sure to scrub off the "sissy stripes" from his tires. Laughing

There we were, truck stuck up to it's axle, dark and 12 miles from no where

Don't you just love adventure? It's these times that make great memories for us. It's a tough
time but when it comes out for good we get a grin on our face and say Thank you Jesus.

Took off work 2 hours early. My cousin Gary and I met Rob and his son at Robs house. He was
2 minutes late because he was catching crawdads down at the creek about 1 mile from his house.

28 miles from Rob's house we pulled down the little trail down to the creek and I stopped right at the river bank...10 feet into the gravel.
Soon we were fishing on Swan Creek. It's a pretty little creek wtih some great fishing holes.

Rob caught the BIG Bass and I caught the most fish. Dark was just 10 minutes away so we got in the truck and found ourselves stuck to the axle in creek gravel. After about 45 minutes of trying to winch it out.. pushing, putting firewood down in the gravel to get out...we were stuck.

Rob went up to the Road and waited for someone to come by. We had heard 2 vehicles go through so it was a chance.

Pretty soon Rob shows up in the back of a 4wheel drive jacked up Ford pickup with a 22 year old young man in it with a
30 foot chain. So we were out of prediciment and laughing and talking about our fix we was in.

Jesus is good all the time. Memories that last a life time. We just laugh and I know God is there laughing with us..
and after a while He sends us help.... I had to admdit..I hadn't got to praying yet my works were not given up on yet... Rob with his iphone for a flash light was praying and soon God provided.

We serve a great God and along that way we have some GREAT Friends that are closer than a brother. I am still mad at him for getting me stuck down there in the river...HA!

Nice racing bike. One of the Ranger Commanders has a son that has won several "bike" competitions. Pedaling hard and fast and over the years I think he said he has broken about 6 or more of his bones....

He told me his son is having issues with the pain from the broken bones. He is only 21. I talked with a Bull rider that was 26 he was all cobbled up looked like he was 60. He had so many broken bones he was in constant pain. He loved bull riding.

We only have one body. Take good care of it. I have broken a toe and it hurts when it gets damp out. GRIN!

Cool racing pictures. My brother would be right in there with you guys. He has a Drag Racer and has spent more of his time on motorcycles on the rear wheels then on both wheels...it seems to me. GRIN! I think he is one of the blessed ones that has never had a wipe out that broke anything or tore anything up. Enjoy these times with your son. It's great memories.

Jesus is good all the time.  Memories that last a life time.  We just laugh and I know God is there laughing with us..
and after a while He sends us help.... I had to admdit..I hadn't got to praying yet my works were not given up on yet... Rob with his iphone for a flash light was praying and soon God provided.  

We serve a great God and along that way we have some GREAT Friends that are closer than a brother.  I am still mad at him for getting me stuck down there in the river...HA!

Glad you guys had a good time and got out without too much trouble! Yes, God is good to us in our predicaments... and I agree that He probably laughs a good bit too. Hey, He created humor and I'm sure He enjoys it.

I'm sure he does laugh since we do. I have wondered how funny is everything to God when he knows all the punchlines beforehand!

My father inlaw and I went to Fin Feather and Fur to pick up my S&W M&P AR-15. Got some prices on open peep sights around $120 for front/back from "Daniel's Defense" which sounds like a good price and good name of course... Sights won't be in the budget for another 1-2 months since I am doing brakes and rotors replacement work today too. In two weeks I have to do the rear cylinders since they are leaking too.

My wife's expression was funny when she saw my AR on the bed:

Wife: "What kind of gun is that"?
Me: "A rifle..."
Wife gives me an inquisitive look.
Me: "Its a .223 caliber rifle..."
Wife: "Is that a AK-47"?
Me: I smile, "You're close its an AR-15"!
