My lowboot got the sole and everything blown off. ;(.

Good thing my gefreiter can fix it anyway. And good thing it blown off at the return march instead of event start. Whew!

Just got back from fort Custer tactical. Was great event, we humped a hill and I flanked hard that helped the unit capture the hill with my friend who was near me. I told him my idea and we did it and the whole battalion got restregnthed at the perfect time. A whistle and we over ran the allied position.

Naw there's lowboot shortage going around. Either you pay 125 or 400. Mine was pre used ATF. Lasted two hardcore event. But it's no big deal, cost 18 bucks to get both pair resole

Suns been shining past couple weeks Zac, as a result Britons have been hiding from the new orange orb in the sky and the residents of Somerset have submerged back underwater to their dwellings.

I'm sorry, the Chinese President (Prime Minister? Supreme Leader? Party-leader? The big guy, anyway) is currently visiting us and signing a 20.000.000 euro deal. I'm not allowed to speak out against the Chinese. Of course, they are dicks, and you know...Oh hold on. Someone at the door.

Hey at least you are not barricaded in your own city.

For those who don't know, the Nuclear Securtiy Summit 2014 is being held in a little more than a day in my city, the Hague. Roadblocks everywhere, soldiers and police patrolling every corner. The entire city center is closed off so Mr Obama and Frau Merkel can cruise around, and then there's three US fighters circling above the city, all day long. And did I mention Obama has moorred a warship not far from our coastline!

Well enjoy living in a warzone for a few days. I'm actually a bit surprised they got the soldiers out. What gear are they wearing?

Dunno, haven't seen them myself though. And I'm a bit surrounded by idiots here. I asked someone what their gear looked like and he responded: like soldiers' gear.

Yeah, that's really freaking helpfull.

I can totally see that happening on a scouting mission with some re-enactors

"Private, what did you see on your scouting mission?"
"Soldiers, sir!"
"Well, what were they wearing?"
"Uniforms, sir!"

I sat in on a British Army Infantry class once at Catterick. Good tip for recon: Make sure each member of your group is looking for something different and knows what they're looking for when you set out.

Like one guy looking for weapon types, another guy evaluates defenses. Whatever works.

Probably more useful for the WW2 guys. If I was scouting I'd have to come back going 'WHOY THEYS GOT BITS UV METAL ON STICKS THEY AV!'
