paddock for the
Ruptured Buzzard Raiders,
to the Busted Compass, come and sit around our campfire for awhile.
Take off your warpaint and bench race with us under the stars. It's
been a long day, hot and dusty, perhaps muddy and rutty too - but now's
a good time to just pull up and relax, and swap tales of adventure. We may not be getting any younger, but they haven't thrown dirt over ME yet - not for keepsies anyway. And I have seen more than one old buzzard get
up from underneath a mushroom cloud when it seemed like he could be
going down for a Dirt Nap. There are no easy miles off-road, and
if there were, then all the weiners would want to do it. No Squids -
Happy Raids... and NEVER GIVE UP.

"The Buzzards." When you wake up in the middle of the night and you are
absolutely CERTAIN you simply have to cross that desert, navigate that
rock garden, circumnavigate the Tetons, crawl through a minefield or
storm a fortress - these are the kind of people you want to say "YES"
when you are pleading for some fool to contemplate joining you.
