Goings-on Lately

Ok Guys, I've been a little behind. Been running around, and have finally sat down for some bloggin. So, here's a quick update for all you who have been wondering and waiting ( I hope that is all of you......)

Well, first of all, and the furthest back, I officially joined the world of deer hunters last month.
My daily carry. A rifle, and a pack with lunch, knives, gps and other usefull items. 

My faithful hunting buddy - Josiah - who trucked up and down hills with me for a full week

And the actual fruit of the hunt. 7 days of hunting and one shot at 20 yards later, I bagged my first deer. 
So, that was very exciting. I hunted for a full week, and put in almost 40 miles of hiking - and that's not counting how much was uphill.

Nov. 1st will go down in my history as a good day. A very good day. God provided, and made me wait and trust for a whole week that he would.

Next, I got promoted in my Civil War reenacting group, and recently went through an entire three-day weekend as the ordinance sergeant. That was hectic, challenging, and was a good experience for me, since I was constantly having to do something, thinking outside the box, and was responsible for a lot of equipment. Thank God I think things went well, and hopefully is now set up (thanks to the help of wonderful NCO's under me)  better than before. I hope. We'll see how that goes.........

And lastly, besides running around with this and that other small things, I officially saw The Avengers.

I borrowed it from a friend, and finally saw what I had heard was a masterpiece of a film. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. A full review is coming soon, but for now, I will say it was awesome. Way awesome. Not a perfect movie by a long shot, but one of the best movies I have seen this year, and officially made it to my favorites list. 

Well, that's about it for now. I'm off to work on a full blown review for Avengers! 


  1. Heyyy! You're alive! Good to see. :D

    That's awesome you got a deer! Amazing, my brother just shot his first deer last weekend too! How ironic is that? o.O

    I'll be looking forward to your review of The Avengers. 8D

  2. We are hunting great blue heron right now...Just kidding. We are at my aunt's and he is trying to eat her goldfish.

    Have you eaten any of the deer meat yet?

  3. Neat that you got promoted, Sarge! ;) It's kind of funny, but my sister and I have just recently gotten into reenacting in the last month--we went to one and got hooked! :D

  4. Sounds like you've been having some fun, hunting and all!! Good job getting a deer!!

    Can't wait for your Avengers review...I really liked that movie and look forward to your perspective on it. :)


Tell me what you think!
I don't care if you disagree, hate me or love me! Just comment!
