For an insight into Comanche raiding and pillaging,I would suggest "Empire of the Summer Moon" by S. C. Gwynne.

Read it. Very interesting.

I have no idea what the heck anyone is talking about here or even what might be going on, but dammit,,,I want in! This sounds like way too much fun to miss. I dub myself TWM (token white man) and will now begin feverishly packing the truck while EPS (eternally patient squaw) lays in food rations for the trip. If someone could let us know where we’re going before we get too far from our driveway, it would be greatly appreciated. Squaw no take well to being lost if you know what I mean.


May the Mods grant me the serenity to accept the opinions of those I cannot change,
the courage to offer input to those who are open to another way of thinking,
and the wisdom to shut up whenever I get too caught up in my own misconceived brilliance.

It’s a recurring annual threat our country receives yet somehow seems to miraculously survive. If I lived on Vancouver Island I would be particularly careful the night of June 28.(full moon). Perhaps their usual heavy cloud cover will darken the evening reducing the carnage.

Grey Mountain, thanks for the insight.

Come spring my WBH (woman better half) and I will pack the wagon and head NW for the Comanche raiding and pillaging.

In my younger years I raced white water canoes with the Chief of the Maliseet Nation Tribe and feel that her spirit overcame my body for we paddled like crazy and won the sixteen mile river race.

Hopefully that encompassing spirit will be enough qualifier to allowed me through the gate of the rendezvous.....

Looks like we're getting a pretty good band of Comanches, Cherokees and renegade MWGs for this little soiree into the Pacific NW.

I've been doing this for 15 years or so and by now, the locals are used to it. They even leave their barn doors unlocked and the horses in the corrall. Must be all those shiny yellow rocks I leave behind...

Remember that BC is NOT in the "Pacific NW", which is part of the USA of course.

GM or at least his Captive Bride, will be glad to know that British restaurant in Parksville is still going.

Just mentioned that restaruant in Parksville to my British Bride. Sure glad we didn't burn it down last time we were there. I trust Cathedral Grove is still standing, and there are still goats on the roof in Coombes...

MW, SW, NW, Middle Earth, Mordor...
...whatever. Still burnable.
