I am sorry that I dropped off the radar a few weeks before the event, and haven't been on since. Toby let me know you guys were curious if I was going again, what happened, etc!
My husband and I did go and had the time of our lives! We learned new things, saw wonderful things, and did some crazy things which we now use to shock our conservative friends and family. Example: My 70 year old co-worker/friend has it stuck in her head that BM is a giant orgy. I think I've done well, comrades!
Before the event we got swamped with real life. My husband still didn't have a job, I was working way full time and we had several emergencies come up which took away our time and finances. I never really got a chance to log on here between planning, packing, working, etc. The event came and I said, we really enjoyed it. What an experience! Thank you so much to Doc and the rest of the BDC, you made our first year one to remember.
After the event I was completely overwhelmed by real life. I got back to work, Amos got a job, lost that job, and got another which he has now and loves. He gets to pull apart transmissions. We have a cat, Yugo, who started to have really odd symtoms when we got back. Hissing, yowling, urinating in weird places. Turns out that his bladder was completely blocked. He had to have two surgeries, including one which took the only manhood he had left. He is eunuch cat. So, between all of the madness I never got a chance to get back on here, and then eventually it died from my head.
We do plan to go this year, but I'm not sure if we will be at BDC (Sorry Doc, meant to e-mail you about that, but yet again, life. D:), as we have a friend who would like to start a camp with us. This will also be his second year. We want to bring something really fun for everyone to enjoy. It's panning out to be an interesting project.
We did not acquire tickets in the sale, unfortunately. We had bad financial luck and needed to pay bills. We are in the STEP program, but our jeep got totaled and so now there's another concern. We had full coverage and will be fine, but insurance will go up. Lame.
So, Hey there, one and all! I promise I will be on more often!
