Re: MOAB 2019

Oh congrats @SSCBen that's a huge accomplishment!

I can't do anything in all of March, and nothing in April before the 15th. The rest of April and May are open so far.

Re: Autumn Invitational War

Alright Scott, so what do you think about this plan? Thursday - I arrive in DC at some point in the afternoon or evening Friday - We thrift in the morning and leave from wherever the last store is to head to NC Saturday - War Sunday Morning - Maybe War (likely sleep lol) Sunday Night - Return to DC ...

Re: Autumn Invitational War

What time do you think we'd be back in DC by on Monday, then? Leaving on Mon is doable for me, but potentially transit chaos as I'd be arriving in NEW YORK on NEW YEAR'S EVE right around the time when ONE MILLION PEOPLE are trying to get to Times - and I have to go through Times Sq - 42nd St station...

Re: Autumn Invitational War

Your riding down with me, right DX? If so did you want to try and go thrifting? The Thursday before the war would probably be best. IDK if the stores will even be open Monday, but it is always 50% off when they are open on a holiday, so there is a crazy amount of crowds. Even if you stayed until af...

Re: Autumn Invitational War

Did we finalize the date and times? I need to know ASAP so I can buy bus tickets before the price goes up.

Re: Autumn Invitational War

I'm still able to come, but I'd definitely need a ride from DC, Scott.

I'd hope we're not staying in the barn with this weather (just had the coldest November in 117 years), but then again, I have no idea what the weather is down there.

Re: Replacement screws for old Super Soakers

I've still been taking screws from existing shells, usually thrifted blasters that are either being picked just for their screws, or when the shell is a waste product (like with the Berserker lol). Many nerf blaster screws will go right into soakers. Definitely not a method for collectors or people ...

"Yolo" I ended up pledging. RIP my wallet, but hey I'll be getting something that doesn't happen very often. Kinda historic, really. 238% and counting!

Re: Spyra One

Now that I've seen the initial price...I am...not quite...sure...about pledging to the kickstarter...umm...that price...yeah... It's about twice as much as I expected the product to cost. I do want to support this and obtain one, but if that's the lowest price offered...yikes. It is a sleek, innovat...

Re: HOG

Marauder, I have always wanted to go to your wars in NC. I have heard amazing stories and read the threads, but it is too far away. The furthest I have ever traveled for an event is 3.5 hours. If we have a war in DC, you don't have to drive there, it can be accomplished almost entirely via public t...

Re: 2018 Water Warriors/BBT Blasters

I still find it odd how water gun retail prices remain stuck at the $20-30 price point while other toy prices surge like hell. Nerf's Prometheus will be retailing in the fall for TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS. Two hundred dollars! It's still a plastic toy. Granted, the Rival line is marketed toward teens and ...

Re: Spyra One

Yeah, this is definitely looking cool as it comes closer to production reality! I signed up my email and gave you a FB like. I do prefer the blue, but they are both pretty good-looking colors. I'll need to buy a pair in order to do a proper review, probably one of each color. How well does the auto-...

Re: HOG

FWIW, I misread the original date and had it wrong in my head. Otherwise, I would have noticed that it conflicted with Endwar and told you much sooner. I've been very, very busy most of the late spring and summer, I make mistakes when trying to plan things in advance under those conditions. Even now...

Re: HOG

Something came up that I didn't know about before - the lead editor for Planet Earth is flying into NYC from Italy on the 21st. That moves "Deadline Day" up from August 1st to the July 21st weekend (I don't know how long he will be in the city). If he wants me to be there for things, I must be there...

Re: Soakemore 2018 planning thread

Deadline day for final completion of Planet Earth is August 1st. I can't do the 28th, as it would have me out of town the last 3ish days before deadline, and those are always chaos. July 21 weekend is already locked, and very weekend in August might be already booked, so I wouldn't be able to come d...

Re: Soakemore 2018 planning thread

My 3rd and 4th weekends in August are still open. Not too keen on doing the island again, though, it feels played out. Still really into the portables, though. I don't think those will ever get old, and there's several options if our usual area doesn't exist anymore.

Re: HOG

I don't know yet. Multi-day events are fairly expensive and my event fund is literally empty. I was planning on taking all of July off in order to fill it up for August stuff. That combined with the terrible heat and my lack of ability to drive very far in it has really killed my enthusiasm for doin...

Re: Soakemore 2018 planning thread

My weekends in August are rapidly filling up. However, all of September is open at this point.
