Am I derping out, or are there not directions to DX's house anywhere here?
If there aren't you can just PM them to me. Thanks.

SEAL: I can bring some medium primaries, you know me I have a lot of them. I was almost without a heavy gun as just this morning my 1500 developed a pressure leak and the nozzle selector on my 2500 was spraying back at me through the sides. The 2500 just needed a new seal so it is good now and so long as I did a good job with the plastic wielder my 1500 should be cured by tomorrow. As for light guns, I have a 1200, 1000, plus multiple Vindicators and Vanquishers. The CPS guns I just tested today and they are working fine. I don't know about the WW stuff but if anything they will just need some silicone spray on the pull valves. Which would you rather use, the Vindicators or Vanquishers? I will probably bring both, but I'd like to know anyway in case I decide to just bring one. I also have a broken CPS 1000 and 1200 that I can bring if we think there will be time to work on them. The 1200 just needs a few pressure leaks glued up (easier now that I have glue that isn't 10 years old) and could be working Saturday night if we glue it Friday.

Regardless, I will probably get there first tomorrow. I am planning on leaving between 10 and 11 tomorrow and its a 6 hour drive, but I could get there anywhere from 3pm-6pm depending on traffic and how many times I have to stop and rest.

You can arrive any time, although only my parents will be home if it's before 6:30ish. It would be best if we "camp out" in the "barn". While I do have beds...I haven't had much of a chance to clean things up, so there are still boxes and guns and more boxes and more guns all over them. My body is still in shock from the transition from very late night to early morning. The first thing I do when I get home now is instantly go to bed, wake up around 9 PM, eat dinner, do some things for a few hours, and then go back to bed. My new commute is an hour door-to-door.

I have a 1200, 1021, and a 12K with a leaky pump. If someone brings a 1200 pump they don't need I could replace it on the spot and have three mediums. I also have a Vanquisher that can be used in medium rounds, so I'm not doing as bad as I thought. The biggest problem is actually light primaries. The only ones I have that work are the Vanquisher and XP 150. I tested a bunch of lights yesterday and my 270, 275, and 95 all leak, my modded 6K's valve sticks open sometimes, and the 75's reservoir is blowing off again for some reason. I tested the Sneak Attack but while it works, it's not as good as I remembered; the range is good and the output is decent, but the stream breaks up a lot and it runs out quickly. It looks like I'm going to end up bringing an Equalizer for light rounds. So it looks like I'm going to need light loaners more than mediums.

Bailey is coming over early today to hang out and help pack, so I won't be on here after lunchtime. Feel free to call me if you need to; see you all tonight! The rednecks are coming, the rednecks are coming!

I actually saw a 1200 in someone's yard in Tiff's old neighborhood yesterday. I half thought about knocking on the door and seeing how much they wanted for it. Someone must have been using it though, cuz it wasn't out with the trash. I guess that's a pretty good sign.

SEAL, the threads on your reservoir are probably stripped. Have you tried duct taping your 75 reservoir down? Or tying it down? When I went to the Dominator War with XN his whole team did that to their XPs. Actually, the way they maintained and kept their guns was quite different from what the rest of us do. Where are your 270, 275, and 95 leaking from? One awesome, but seldom known fact about the Gorgon is that you can actually take 1 of the sides of the shell off and pump it and fire it with the internals exposed. It's pretty awesome if you want to find leaks. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the problem with Gorgons, it's always pump lag (fixed) and firing valves opening under full pressure (still confused on this one).

The MD6k's valve may be fixed with some silicone spray.

Tried to tie down the 75 res, but that didn't work. The 275 leaks somewhere out of the valve area; tried to JB weld it but I think I missed. I think the 95 leaks out of the valve area too, and I'm not sure about the 270 'cause I haven't taken the cover off. For the 6k, I did use silicone spray, but obviously that worked about as well as a water balloon in a war.

Right now I'm in DX's barn hanging out, while waiting for the host to return from the airport. We screwed around at the high school before, but we didn't fight. Can't wait for tomorrow.

Just had an exhausting OHS game a few hours ago. Night wars coming up!

The war was fun. Thanks and shout out to Duxburian and everyone else for an awesome weekend. Finally got to play some games that were longer than an hour and not at Nerf distances. We got in trouble with Johnny (or Jenny in this case?) Law again and only got one round in at the Greenway, but Paine is a much better battleground in the summer so it worked out. I'll work on a battle report later, for the four or so people who actually give a shyt. For now, check out these pictures:

Group photo minus Bailey. He was taking pictures with two cameras at once so the quality suffered a bit, but hey. I look weird as hell in this picture for some reason. And yes, that is a ghille suit.

The last remaining person on the enemy team in the first 1HK match.
Image

So my team hunted him down.
Image

GET 'IM BOYS!!!
Image

Argh, blur.

Later in the day, doing VIP in Paine.
Image

DX getting stoned in the first two-hour 1HS round.
Image

"Chief Keefe" in the same round.
Image

CA99 hiding so stealthily that even the camera has trouble seeing him.
Image

A better shot of DX.
Image

POV shot.
Image

Another POV shot, though this was in the other 1HS round on the next day, in a different spot.
Image

Hey, I actually took a bunch of pictures this time.

Good pics! I have some footage to review, mostly from Saturday.

Thanks to DX for hosting and thanks to all who attended!

Looks like it was a really great war! The first location looks superb, and Paine looks even better during the summer. The photos could be touched up a bit, which I will do tomorrow if you don't mind.

That was awesome! Wish we people weren't so paranoid though, I swear when you say Super Soaker people think of a fire engine hosing down an angry mob! We only had one round at Greenway because of this, and were also afraid that someone would come yell at us for hanging around the school so didn't do night wars ether. It was nice to see a new face at this war and the rounds we had were some of the most intense of any war so far. Wost part besides getting kicked out of the greenway though was the ride home. My dad didn't come this war so I had to do a lot more driving then I had ever done before. After I dropped CA99 off at the airport, my idiot GPS took me through downtown Manhattan! Anyway, thanks to DX for hosting this war, hopefully Frozen Furry will be as good!

Well, sorry I couldn't lend you my phone! We need to find you a cheap tablet or something for your next birthday lol. (They have them at $60-ish now.) Oh well, at least you made it home safe.

Nice color work. A lot of these give a more "war-like" feel to the photos.
