    Hey all,

    So tonight is the night! I plan to be at founders around 12:30 p.m. to sit at he bar for a while before settling down outside for KBS release. Who else is planning to do the same? looking for some people to help burn the downtime with and * and generally just shoot the Sh*t until 11 a.m. when the doors open back up.

    Whose with me?

    EDIT: I'll also be bringing a few things to share

    We've been here for 2 days. Rations are low, but spirits are high. We got our first meal since arriving today after Chuck killed a squirrel. The meat was stringy, but it sufficed. I used it's pelt to make some really cute ear muffs.

    You can find me in line tomorrow wearing a yellow backpack and a bright yellow Michigan hoodie.
    First group of occupiers that yell out, "Hey NPH" get a pour of some Heady Topper.

    Careful not to eat any wild sweet pea. There will be hundreds of people waiting after you to take your spot. Though I heard the poisoning was all a myth..........or was it............

    Sounds like I'm going to have to wear like 4 hoodies plus a jacket just to have a chance to stay a little warm for 6 hours...

    At least at 6:30 the Greyhound station across the street opens. A great place to drop a deuce, wash up, and warm up!

    Is 4am too early to get there??? Either way I'll be there sleeping in a folding chair with headphones on. Wake me up around 7:30 and ill share all the thumbprint new glarus I got (barleywine, apple ale and cherry stout). Also bringing a raspberry tart.... All the fruit makes my body think its eating a legitimate breakfast.

    4am is earlier than necessary but there will certainly be people there at that time.
