NAF brothers and sisters,
It seems that
Buck was just about to send out a search party to try
and find me, it seems that once again I was holding up
the show. I have really had a mental block the last
few months because of some unexpected things that
happened, and the loss of my dog Wa-Sha really
devastated me. I was having a heck of a time trying to
come up with anything that would not sound like I was
whining or sniveling. We all have times where life
gets in the way of living and we just have to deal
with it the best we can. So rather than have Buck get
on a plane and fly over here and kick my butt up and
down the Golden state I figured I had better send in
something for him to put for the Captains Log.
Just like the rest of you I am excited about the 2013
Nationals in Rye CO as well as the fall encampment the
1-4 of Nov. I hope to see you there.
Like Little Brother NAF#128 says in the Sec/Treas
report, James Kellar NAF#127 our North Eastern Factor
is out there getting us new members. He just came back
from a trek/encampment and has another one planned
around the corner so those of you interested in his
next adventure please contact James. When I talked to
him the other night he said he has (3) new folks that
are wanting to join that are going to be sending in
their paperwork soon, one already has.
is doing things as he should, which is by the book and
even though he may know these folks are what we are
looking for he is still having them go to 2 encampment
with him before he will give them a invitation. Bravo
to go Ferrell, today I got an email from Ferrell
Peterson NAF#7 about a encampment he is putting on in
UT. so those of you who would like to take part in it
should contact Ferrell for more information.
So it looks like we have (3) NAF events that will be
happening in three different states over the next few
months. It is events like this that will keep us going
and bring in new members. No one is interested in
joining a group that does nothing.
have a good feeling that Randy Bublitz NAF#8 and Susy
Epperson NAF#111 are going to be working on a canoe
trip in the future. Susy is also just about done with
her Mountaineer requirements and will become our first
female Mountaineer, congratulations Susy.
am very pleased to see that many of our members are
really starting to make things happen and are
participating. My hat is off to all of you that are
getting out there and getting on the ground, being
active, and joining in to help make the North American
Frontiersmen be an Association that does more than
talk about doing things.
thank you all for your help and time.
