The stars didn't line up for us to go this time around. I did drive by Wednesday on the way home from a work-related meeting. We went on a day trip last time that turned out to be a disaster. I plan on going with my 2 boys next time around, but it's almost as expensive as modifying your jeep, really...

i used to collect fantasy knives and daggers but since i have grown up my taste has changed (i actually have a few knives for sell if anyone is interested) i now collect bayonets only, focusing on WWII and later, but if i came across a WWI... i wouldnt mind it for the right price hehe. my collection is not many, maybe 15 total. i cant remember at the moment.

had a chance to get a mauser a month or so ago and didnt have the cash on hand, so disappointed.

items i want to sell are a couple fantasy knives: higgens mostly, Hornet dagger, Griffin, warbird, and a scorcerers dagger... if anyone is interested.

I carried a ninja sword during my first deployment to Afghanistan. At first I carried it as a joke, but then it became sort of my trade mark.....

I even painted it to match my M24. It was badass!
