Awesome, I have our display boards up and assembled. Now all we need are a giant pair of balls to pull this thing off...

Oh, wait, I have those here...

We're trying to keep things clean and professional. That means no tac-gear, no BDU's, and no guns (real or fake). This is a great opportunity to reach the masses with the message of ZS and invite them to the fun things we do later. Educate first, intoxicate second...

Ok, so Joe is out, but he may make it to the range. Who will be camping? At this point, it looks like, um, just me?

I'm pretty sure the classic pre-industrial society had lots of children because each family member could further share the workload of the home, not because there was a lack of birth control. There was a higher mortality rate and a shorter lifespan so having more people around provided stability for...

I love quoting myself... Here's the straight dope on Pee-Pee, as far as I know... Drinking urine for hydration purposes is self-defeating: The body flushes toxins and excess minerals from the body through excretion (urination, perspiration, defecation, and respiration). That's how the body gets rid ...

The topic of armor has been discussed at great length before. You could use the search function to see the many pros and cons that have been discussed before.

A short personal story on the importance of layers for our last Wintergheddon trip in January of 2007 may help to illustrate the usefulness of layers. The previous year (2006) held day time temperatures of about 30-35 and night time temperatures of about 10. We spent the days cutting wood and the ni...

When I hike I either go for "sport socks", or a layer of cotton socks with a layer of wool socks over them. Both types do just about the same thing for your feet. The inner layer stays snug to your foot and lets the inner layer chaff against the outer layer so your skin isn't chaffing the sock. Also...

I was thinking about the add-on patches as well. That way we could still personalize our gear, but still have a foundation of unity. For PR's sake, I think we should stay away from any sort of military insignia or system of rank. ZS has traditionally kept away from a formal rank structure to allow f...

Before anyone goes out and makes up some variation of the ZS official logo, keep in mind that it is a copy written device. I'm not adverse to additional patches or pins, but the ZS organization is one group with various chapters, not different organizations. One of the important reasons for keeping ...

No one has crossed the line yet, but this is a friendly reminder that a topic like this can quickly jump into the "inappropriate political discussion" range. I'm not trying to make waves, just watch your P's and Q's in this section so it can stay open and productive.
