hey it's Akira, can I come?

Is there any answer to this other than YES?

Someone from before both of our times. Come to DCNO and find out for yourself.

By the way, to get this back on track, I need you to put me down now as a maybe Groove. I still haven't heard from the auto body shop as to when I will get my car back. I was in an accident two weeks ago and the rental can't leave the state if I still want my insurance to pay for it. I'll keep you posted. Last time I talked to the mechanic they said that it should be done in time, but that was last week and I have no new information since then.

Don't be a pussy, just walk. Mail your guns ahead of time and then all you have to bring with you is a few days' worth of food and water. Maybe you could even hitchhike.

Hitchhike = Bad
Bad Knee + Long Ass Walk = Bad
Mailing Guns = Funny Story, but still Bad

I know I went to survival school, but that was a long time ago when I was more agile and 40 pounds lighter. I should have my car back in time, so no worries, but I would rather play it safe.

If you're really intent on attending, you could probably get yourself to NYC and take the Chinatown Bus down to Baltimore. How you get there from Baltimore is up to you, but it's alot easier I believe to get to the war from Baltimore.

I want to come to this war but I would be missing 2 nights of raiding. I don't want to lose my veteran rank in my guild for not showing up. See you guys next time.

I got some questions guys, concerning extra ammo.

How do you guys store your ammo at home and in transportation? During a round of a game, how much ammo do you bring with you to the field, and where do you keep it? (Do people just use their pockets or do people just rely on gun-mounted slots..)

I want to know so I am prepared for combat and be the least useless as possible my first war.

I have a small bag that mounts on my belt, that has a little locking mechanism to keep it closed; I just have to twist it and it opens. It's worked wonders for me so far, but I've only been to one major war thus far, so take my opinion for what it's worth.

I usually carry two zippered pouches along with an ammo belt.

I use the cargo pockets on my shorts and sometimes either the mesh bags that te taggers come in, or old militray magazine holders.

In the end, it comes down to whatever you are comfortable with and your own personal playstyle.

I too just use a zippered pouch. Enough to carry 30 darts.
Darts are store upright in shoe-box size tupperware containers.

If you're really intent on attending, you could probably get yourself to NYC and take the Chinatown Bus down to Baltimore. How you get there from Baltimore is up to you, but it's alot easier I believe to get to the war from Baltimore.

I think he was being facetious Badger.

I won't have my plusbow done on time, and my at3k is crapping out on me. Anyone got a decent primary that I might be able to borrow for this war?

Better not to trust the Chinatown bus companies.

Vamoose runs from Penn Station, NYC to Bethesda, MD (2 or 3 metro stops from the war)
Washington Deluxe has a few pickup points in NYC, and a few drops in DC.
BoltBus is another company, a variety of pickups in both cities.

Find whichever has the best time for you, happy to pick you up from the metro stop. It's across the street from the downtown area, if you remember the war site from last time.

Akira, nice to hear from you. How's senior year going? I hope to see you at the war.

Squishy, if I manage to finish my LS on time, I may be able to lend you an AT3k; sadly though, it might only chamber Slug's darts well, just as a warning.

Thanks a load. If worst comes to worst I'll just get some streamlines.

I'll have plenty of extra guns. You can use my A2TK or a SS2 if you want. I won't have any barrels though.

I too will have extras blasters w/ barrels on hand (3 big blasts and 2 nitefinders) because it's quite likely I will have a handful of recruits in the next week. My church is starting to get interested in Nerf so we're holding a modification workshop on both Wednesday and Saturday this week.
War to be organized and scheduled for some date in June.

I'm not referring to the quirky little kiosks. I'm referring to
http://www.gotobus.com/dragoncoach/

Admittedly though, Greyhound has very similar routes for comparable prices. There are TONS of bus options available in DC.

Well, this may end up a no-go for me, not sure if i want to trust my piece of shit to a 12-hour drivefest (there and back)

if i can get it working more reliably, i'll be there, most likely trailed by a wall of black smoke, and pissed of pedestrians
