Wounded! Or How I Spent My Summer Vacation . . . .

I've been very inactive on my blog this summer.  I was really injured in early June, and am only now feeling like I'm recovering.

That's me leaning on the wheel, awaiting evacuation to the field hospital.

My mood was low, and my energy followed suit.  Through it all my solice was in gaming, truly that most pleasant of distractions.  Over the course of the summer I've found my second true love rekindled -- gaming the 18th century. 

I've made trips east to be with my dear friends in Appleton and Milwaukee, and played again with the ATF group.

In Appleton, staying with Mike and Peg Mathews

The Lads at Bill Protz's for a big BAR game

The one and only ATF group relaxing after an engagement

My local buddies and I discovered Maurice, Sam Mustafa's excellent set of 18th century rules.

Still playing Impetus, and adding as much Maurice into the mix as I can.  I'm looking forward to catching you up with posts soon.  TAFN

  2. Thanks so much, Monty. The games in Milwaukee are really a blast with a fun group.

    I hope for a full recovery. That would be fantastic. But lots more gaming fun is almost a certainty!
