We represent a newly-formed unit of Independent soliders at the outbreak of the hostilities (prior to Du Khang and Serenity Valley).
First and foremost, remember that this is a fan-based organization, and our first rule is "Show up. March. Have Fun!"

Our inaugural march took place at DragonCon in Atlanta in September of 2007.

We do have a few rules and regulations that must be met in order to be considered as a member, including uniform requirements and weapons requirements. These will be outlined below. Please be sure to read over all the information and confirm that you can meet all of these requirements before applying for membership. We are not trying to keep people out, but we do want to present a united, uniform Battalion of Independent soldiers, and one of the best ways to do this is to look the same.

Firsties!

Big Suck and summer is here. You know I don't even mind the heat & humidity. Any day in the saddle is a good day.

H.O.G. event went well Saturday Sister. Good turn out, good food grilled up, biker games were a lot of fun, and the weather was sunny and warm without being too hot. Lots of skilled riders in our ranks showing off their fine control in the barrel roll and slow race. All in all a good time. Ice cream run later in the day so we put some miles on the bikes.

Hope everyone had a good weekend.

Hump Day EVE! Another 'blister' of a day…getting lots done in the early, early mornings because by 11 a.m. it's too stink in HOT out there. I am yearning for a plunge pool just to 'water buffalo' in on these hot and humid days.
You all have a good one!!

You know a pool to jump in to cool off is not a bad idea. Maybe one of those cheap inflatable kiddie deals that you can sit in the shade, fill it, fall into it to cool off, then hop out and back to work. May have to look into that.

Summer is settling in here too. 95 today with 45% humidity. Tomorrow is supposed to be 100 with 50% humidity. Still, I love the heat because it means I can ride!

Stay cool out there Sister. Think of me this afternoon cause I have to cut the lawn and it will be toasty. LOL

Hey…Browncoat1; hope you didn't melt mowing the lawn!! Our 'yard boy' is on vacation until the weekend so things are getting quite 'weedy' here if you need another place to mow..heh.
I'd do that kiddie pool in a second…if it weren't for a certain Rottweiler who lives to eat plastic. Hmmmm…maybe in the front yard?…Nope, I'd be way too embarrassed!!
Have a great Hump Day!!

Didn't melt, but looked like someone had dumped a bucket of water on me. Nothing a cool shower couldn't cure. I'd offer to mow your lawn, but TN might be a bit of a commute.

To the Special Hell with embarassment! You have to improvise when it gets this hot outside. LOL

Rained heavy here last night so no need to water the garden. ;) Unfortunately it also means the grass is growing like crazy. Ugh. Supposed to be good chance of rain Saturday and Sunday so no riding most likely. Not cool. They are calling for the temp to drop into the 80s though, so that is an upside to the rain I suppose.

Got a new seat for the bike. The standard seat is great for short trips, but a bit less than "comfortable" for longer road trips. Had two so far and I was a bit saddle sore by the end of each. Hopefully this new Sundowner will eliminate that issue.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Saturday!!
Heh…the 'seat' issue!! I recall several years ago my husband decided to ride from TN down to Key West, Fla…have a hamburger at Sloppy Joe's then ride home! Apparently on the ride back…his butt got so sore, he stopped at a horse outfitters and got a saddle blanket that he bungeed to the seat, for a more comfortable ride! We still have that blanket around here someplace.
I hope you get your knees in the breeze in between rain storms…
HAVE A GREAT DAY!!

Sunday..
I got to watch a wonderful thunderstorm yesterday; the skies darkened…the big trees started swaying in the strong wind…cracks of thunder got closer and closer and then the skies opened and lashes of rain poured down!! The whole thing lasted just half an hour but I felt so privileged to watch and feel it!!
Have a great day.

Seat worked out great Sister. Got a Sundowner Tall Boy that has twice as much padding and actually moved me back about an inch or so giving me a tad more room to stretch the ol' legs. Got it put on Saturday afternoon and got to test it out with an hour long ride Sunday. Definitely makes a huge difference. Got to test it out on a longer ride this coming weekend.

We had dark, looming clouds all day Saturday and Sunday, but it never rained. Still the temps cooled into the mid 80s giving us some relief from the heat.

Big Suck is here, but about half over now. Let's not focus on it and maybe it will just go away.

Bad week behind us, short holiday week this week! Can definitely use that 3 day weekend!

Calling for rain & thunderstorms from tomorrow on into the weekend for us, but the way our forecast changes so rapidly that could already be updated to something new.

Hope everyone is having a good Monday so far.

July the ONETH! Yesssss on that holiday weekend! In TN our weather pukes (those who vomit up a forecast) are calling for storms tomorrow then a break in the heat and humidity for Thursday and Friday. They are not to be believed, however…I think they make up a good-sounding forecast so people won't commit mass suicide in the heat.

Chance of thunderstorms here all day due to Arthur. % increases throughout the day from 20% up to 80% as of the last weather report. Course we need some rain at this point. Watering the gardens to keep the flowers and plants going, but my yard could use it to.

Hope everyone has a safe and festive July 4th!

Nope. Well no decent rain to speak of anyway. Got one brief little shower that was less than an eighth of an inch of rain and the ground was dry again in less than 30 minutes due to the heat. It did help to cool things off at night dropping us into the high 60s low 70s so we could open the house up and night and cut off the AC.

Best thing about Tuesday? It's not Big Suck! LOL

Ha! Seems to be working! It got down right cool last night after the rain. Fairly mild for July today & they are saying it could get cooler over the next couple of weeks. Suits me just fine.

Hope everyone is having a good week. Hump Day!!!

Thor's Day! Raise a horn to the Protector of Midgard!

Vikings is still filming season 3 in Ireland right now. Filming wraps in August and I believe they premiere in February.

Liked the fact that it was 62 this morning when I got on the bike and I had to put on a hoodie for the ride to work. Mid to high 80s here today and low humidity. Pretty nice for July.
