As you can see by the image, some of the gear that has been following me around the country is beginning to catch up. CQB Hosts: H will be sending you III CQB Badges so you can distribute them to your people. Yes, Alan P. (South Carolina), you too.
The 300 patches - I am still noodling through the III 300 - the who and what, the mission, and more. I need to talk to a few of you to ensure we are heading in the proper direction. The III 300 will be a very special collection of Patriots - men who mean to take point, men (and women) who mean to never bend knee, men who live the III to the core and intend to die with Liberty beneath their feet. More on this later.
My new profession is known to you, and it demands that I share more of my life than I usually would. Forgive me if I cross into TMI territory once in a while.
III PatCon: Friday the 6th, Sat the 7th, Sun the 8th of September - The Idaho gig that started simply as a routine visit home has blown into a real "Thing". This makes me very, very proud. Let's do this! I have already warned you all, there is nothing on the site at this moment except a pad site cleared by a bulldozer. H and I intend to set up a tent off in a corner and build a rough fence that is secure enough to keep our dogs from committing suicide on some Ranchers steer.
Come one and come all, bring a tent, bring a trailer, there are 20 acres and most of it is on a STEEP incline. Ms. Violet advises we may have to go without open campfires due to dry conditions - but we'll be together and we'll make it work. Bring some water, bring some food. Bring a wife or hubby. Bring a sleeping bag. Bring a smile. If you bring weapons, as I said before, keep them under YOUR PERSONAL CONTROL AT ALL TIMES.
We'll handle some Congress business, Citadel business, I have heard Miller may be there, so there will be III Arms talk, and somehow, I suspect we are all in for a good time.
We will try to rent a few sani-johns, but I advise everyone to bring more water than you think you'll need. We'll get a propane grill just in case open fires are no-go. Bring some hot dogs, hamburger, steaks, whatever.
Folks - this is as un-planned, un-coordinated as it gets - screw the plans and let's just meet, greet, take care of some business, and be f'n Patriots.
One thing I need to know ASAP, RIGHT NOW, and if you don't know right now, AS SOON AS YOU KNOW: How many are coming and how many plan to take my CQB course? I'll post a poll at right. If you plan to attend and have to cancel, no worries, just please zip me an email, so I can keep a semi-realistic number as a running total.
Folks - H and I look forward to meeting each and every one of you.
Security: As much as I hate to say it, I DO think a security patrol, 24/7, is a prudent move. Local media HATES us, many locals HATE us for no reason other than we exist. Regional media may be present. I don't want this to look like an armed invasion, by the same token, controlling our perimeter is simply smart. Feel free to weigh-in if you think perimeter security and challenging trespassers is too much.
So - SOUND OFF! Who's coming and how many in your Tribe are coming with you - poll is at the right.
