Josh and Jarr left for Mt. Banner today... I think it was around 4pm or so. Bastards are more than halfway there already, and here I am, getting ready for bed so I can wake up early and go to work tomorrow. Damn that sucks. I haven't been on a trip since our Trooper initiation / shooting trip, which was a month ago. I really do long for the outdoors, but working 6 days a week kinda takes out the chance for that. I would very much like to go up to White Mt. again this year, but I doubt if I'll be able to. I don't even know if I'll be able to come up with the $1200 or so I'll need for backpacking gear before I can do any backpacking trips at all. At least I'm going shooting this Sunday, that should be pretty relaxing. All shotgun... yeah... --------------------

I just glanced at the beginning of my last journal entry and realized that things have changed quite a bit in the last week. My friend and I are truly friends again... I guess even intelligent evil plots mixed with horrible coincidence aren't a match for a real friendship... and that is a comforting thought. I'm pretty sure I know who my real friends are... there are very few... and they are people I would trust my life with. Did I mention very few? It's good to know that there are people you can count on, regardless of what is going on in your life... which brings me to my next question... hey guys, I'm broke, can I borrow $1200 to buy my backpacking gear?


Josh is the proud new owner (though he doesn't actually posess it yet) of an apparently mint condition Canon F-1. It really really makes me miss mine, which was so mint it was actually mint (if you've ever bought stuff on eBay you will understand that statement), and which was stolen from me by some piece of shit asshole loser. Hey, I think that's the first time I've used profanity in the journal... guess I must be pretty damn bitter. Well, I will soon enough (actually not soon enough, but soon nonetheless) own another F-1, especially now that Josh has one and I will have to see it all the time.
