10 miles South of town and we we're already broke down.

 So somewhere south of Fayetteville, Arkansas my navigator Thor (not pictured) informed me that we had lost the heater core in the van. Being not as mechanically savvy  as I wished, I inquired "how do you know?" He just pointed down to the floor board beneath the dash at a gushing waterfall  of steaming green liquid he dangled his feet above. 
My first reaction was a conjuration of words so profane a long shore-men would have been stunned, after which I knew the trip was about to come to an abrupt end. 
After a moment of silence Thor simply said " ah man give me about two hours."
 Thor blessed with a mechanical genus he claims that "20 years of owning piece of Sh!T cars" had the van up and running after a heater core bypass that looped the coolant back to the radiator intake. Repairs total cost: $11.64 

The Van still wasn't done with us. I realize that the van is probably older than some of my readers, but every time we go out we end up with a repair bill larger than the actual fuel cost. Thor joking has christened her "Scott's Fat Little Princess." Only because I talk to it for encouragement. 
Between Conway and Little Rock she had another tantrum. $500 latter she had new tires and was quite happy with her new shoes.

Historicon Here we Come!

2200 miles to Historicon in a 1993 decommissioned air force Panel Van. There is no AC, one speaker and the electrical system is more miss than hit. Raise a glass in salute to dedicated fools and toast, if your in the I-40 corridor and see us broke down, please stop and pick us up.

The Nauty-Lass

The Nauty-Lass is a trim little Bermuda Sloop which has tormented the Virginia colonies for the past 11 months. Her shallow draft and rig make it nearly impossible to catch in the shallows of the outer bank islands. armed with 4 bronze cannon her crew prefer to rake her prey with aft penetration and in the confusion of the darkness disable their rudder. Currently there is a bounty out for her capture of 100 Pounds by the Virginia Governor, but the Nauty-Lass has been playing hard to get.

Prairie Pirates to Historicon!

The Fist Full of Seamen crew is setting sail for the Virginia Colonies. 
Historicon 2013 set up all day Saturday.
Preregistration is open so sign up if your going! 

Can't figure on why a 700sqr FT Pirate game would hold any interest take a listen to the POD Cast from Muse On Mini's:
(It mostly pertains to Warmachine and Hordes but if you just want to listen to the pirate game, it starts around 1:30:40 on the time track)
