My limited dealings wit the NSA types were equally as maddening. Early in my AF career I dealt with the guys at the 6903. Their refusal to interact with anyone not in their club drove me insane. Shaking the fence to get in instead of a "hey dude" was too much for me. In retrospect I understand why they shook the fence instead of announcing their presence. At the same time I feel sorry for them because being afraid to even say good morning for fear you may reveal something is a helluva existence.

Up here we feed bears for the hunt.
Ever had to shoot a 300 lb one thru a door lol
wife was not happy
Had a OPP guy camp in my trailer pack
came running in and ask me to kill one around his site
he said if he use his pee-shoot he would have to do like 2 to 3 hours off paperwork
300 # is smallish. What was it a black bear yearling cub? I know those Grizzly's run over 1k #s and the Brown bears get pretty damn big. Best to not feed the bears since they can get pushy. I would say feed yourself the beers instead, it might be safer. Just not too many before the hunt.
I attended Air Force aircrew survival school at Fairchild AFB, Spokane, Wash. in 1968. It was on a huge military reservation in eastern WA. My class was divided into 10 man elements with an instructor who was basically a mountain man. We were in our little camp and learning survival skills when a runner informed us that the instructor of another had shot a black bear. So off we went to the location and once all the elements were gathered, the over-joyed instructors skinned the bear, gutted it, and cut it up so each element got a chunk. We took it back to our camp, where the instructor cut it in half. One half went into a pit BBQ type, in-ground oven for hours. the other half was cut into thin strips, salted and smoked in a small tent of parachute cloth for jerky.
In case anyone is wondering what is going on with our domain names. According to Tucows, we have violated their agreement. number 17.3 >> opensrs.com...
However we did not violate any laws or break any rules. So step by step following the justice system. Redress will be sought. I will do my best to get our website back online. Let's ring a bell in the evening and in the morning all over this land.

Full disclosure, I did shake Bill Clinton's hand in 1996.
Should I go and get myself checked???
