What?

We put gasoline on the outside of a junk tractor tire, crawled inside and had a buddy light the tire and roll us down the sledding hill at night. Joey Chitwood wouldn't let us work for him,
Said we were too hard on the cars.

As a kid in Juneau we used to roll giant 4' diameter snowballs down an embankment perpendicular to oncoming cars. They smashed harmlessly in the ditch but that was not the first thought entering the motorist's mind. We often had to hide in the woods.

I did not realize there was an OK Corral in Osoyoos Campground. If we make it next year
would it be possible to have a spud gun event, a carbide cannon competition, ride the commercial dryers at the laundramat? Can I bring my 12' surgical tubing water balloon launcher? What fun...

A New Way To Slingshot

Flinging small steel balls at high velocity right after drinking a bunch of wine. Yeah. What could possibly go wrong? I'm in.

Let's git it on.

War? Mmmmm no, but maybe a first annual "International Slingshot Ultimate Challenge"


Pretty good stories being posted too. Anyone want a stand up Liars Contest? .... Maybe after one of our Osoyoos meals? If so I better check with Tammy or Reace for permission for either or both events.

Anybody got an Applause -O- Meter? Like the old TV game shows?
