61 degrees, time to bust out the shorts, for it is finally summer.

That feeling you get when you go to the kitchen at midnight only to get a chunk of shattered glass in your toe because you thought it was warm enough this winter to resume going barefoot.


-There will be delays in replies. Largely due to working overtime, voluntary obligations; other RPs and online-things may compete for my attention.

'Bout me:
Started RPing (badly) back in '05, mostly doing nation-RPs with an emphasis on technology and strategy, later edging out to character-espionage and military-tactics before doing "less serious" character roleplays that were outside of the 2005-2008 continuity.

That's when I went to Dead-Frontier, and found the RP community there, joined a clan, did some pretty good roleplays and pretty much loosened-up my online-personality. When the clan-leader decided to move her RPs here, most of the clan followed.

Took a course in technical-writing back in '08, so now I may sometimes use the semicolon correctly.

In 2010 I dusted off the old nation-RP continuity I had, doing a few hetelia-esque RP-shenanigans there..

RP-Habbits: I tend to geek-out on little technical-details, and sometimes infer how those details would impact the background of the roleplay. Great for world-building, not so great when you had a perfectly good plotline and I just MacGyver it off the rails (though I usually er to the side of amusement, sometimes it creates very grim side-stories).

I think we call it somthing of a big woodland-camo grid-square eraser. Because of its brick-like lozenge shape.

For all the oopsies field commanders may see in need of removal to look fit and proper.

Strangely enough, you get desensitized to it. The vehicles tend to stay the same.
Sometimes they come back a little more or a little less banged-up than usual. Since this is kinda where MRAPs that run over landmines end-up.

Land Rovers are a lot more common here. I cycle past a nice ex-military one that evidently belongs to a collector most days I cycle to work. It's still got the old markings and has the radio antenna bases still installed. I'll get a pic one day. There also a Humber Pig that just sits in someone's drive in my home city too.
I think because Portsmouth is a military town, there's quite a lot of stuff like that locally. One of the old defensive forts here was scheduled to become a museum, and they got to the point of bringing in a bunch of vehicles to exhibit, but never opened the museum. Now it's a park and ride for the local hospital, with a Chieftan tank out front, and apparently some more vehicles inside.

*Points at local Nat'l gaurd open-air armory, motor-pool, and Oshkosh truck MRAP storage/repair yard.

Have chatted with M270 MLRS crewmen back when CNN was still mistakening them for bridgelayers.

Doesn't take a 6 yr old long to count the number of tubes on one of those.

"Why doesn't it have more rockets?" (was expecting, like, 40... just like BM-21)

"It has enough."
Notes that the first time I listened to "Bullets" by Archive, I thought the line said "Bullets off of beauty in the western sky. Bullets off of beauty and I don't know why."

Bit of a long way to go back and ask ;) But maybe they'll do something like that if they refurbish them sometime in the future. Either way, it was something different to see. The whole museum was good, actually. Had a lot of unusual stuff for a museum over here, and things I hadn't seen before. A lot of the museums here only have ex-RAF, Army or RN aircraft. Seeing some foreign things was a nice change.

I guess I'm kinda spoiled to have a running T-34/85 just down the street by the airport.
(You'll have to ask the owner super-nicely, though)

Importing ammo for it is probably a pain, though.

Although I was somehow more impressed by the collection of vintage trucks.
-Vintage land rover trucks aren't common over here.
-Oddly enough, main battle tanks are exempt from this tax. So you can literally buy a gently used Centurion mk 8 for less than a Land Rover.
-I'm hinting that Vickers should start building tanks for the American public. Out-Hummer the Hummer already, show 'em how it's done.

BTW: a pound of chicken-meat is cheaper than a pound of eggs.

Ask them if you can put a shark-toothed smiley-face on her.

Was tempted to do East Germany, for das Bundesboos out there.

But they get Su-22.
