Yeah! And RMAR was kind enough to suppy a fine bottle of rye at the Davy Crockett gig that I had to drink all by myself as someone was unable to attend.

Ok Alpha6 helped.


And maybe Marmaduke.

I think there were several others too! Mebbe DBX???

I was needing medication pretty bad! The fever destroyed my memory!!!

Don't let DBX get off his medication, the consequences could be catastrophic!

I will agree to the wiskey! But seriously i like the information on the link. Pretty basic but still great information and keeps people thinking about the what if's of the trail. There is a ton that can happen out in the woods! Too many people i know have been hurt and have no clue what to do.
