The Blackwateristes

Or is it The Lucky Winners of the Golden Ticket?[1] There's a combined blogfeed for 'em, or most of them, anyway; I notice Miss Tamara "Maverick" K is not (yet) among that lot, though she's posted about the experience already.

UPDATE: They've talked her into signing up. My first guess is that IPA was involved[2], not to mention she's among company that can talk the birds outta trees.

UPDATE UPDATE: For a mercy, our "Slim Jim" trip-prep conversation isn't there. (And should not be, mmmmkay?). I'm not linking to it, either.

UPDATE CUBED: Joe Huffman's Twitter has a running account of his experiences! Quoting Tam already -- she reacts to the sight of firearms and their distant reports with the innocent delight of a shieldmaiden discovering a fresh battle.

She wasn't initially added because she didn't give permission for her feed to be included. I would not assume that people would allow their full content to be posted on another blog without asking first, hence the "with permission" notation on each entry. I made multiple email offers, and it was discussed on various other blogs.

I just got a phone call that she has now given permission, which means that I will now add her.

Bitter: Um, the dull thud was my attempt at humor augering in. I figured Tam -- who is an independent cuss even when she's renting one's attic -- either hadn't made up her mind about joining the feed yet or had opted out.

Dneylon? Do you need to lie down for a while? ;) Timestamp's right there on each comment, anyone can see you and Bitter must have been typing at the same time.
