  1. We are back from Speed Week at Bonneville. We did super amazing great. (Set a world record that might not be broken for a while). I may run next year. While out, I brought my little Sandy and Dewey along for pictures.
  2. Is it? It is. The MEPD is the oldest detachment in the 501st. The MEPD is no longer a teen. The traditional anniversary gift for 20 years? China. The modern gift? Platinum. The number one song of 2000? Faith Hill’s “Breathe“. Are there any plans for like a super cool patch? Hope this post finds everyone safe and in good health.
  3. Super. Congratulations to everyone.
  4. I use old fashioned AquaNet hairspray in the purple can. The weathering on My boots has held up to the wet grass at Balloon Fiesta. I also use it as a fixative for touch ups. And it can be washed off. It never failed my big hair in the 80s, when it rained or snowed.
  5. I don’t know if you could get it down to 2 kilos. The toilet siphon weighs about .3 of a kilo. The frame, depending on what you end up using may weight a kilo. I know a few of our garrison members that do have PO status, but do not wear their pack at troops. Bluey, a former member here and of our garrison and one of the people who created SWAT. I saw him wearing a pack maybe once. Im not sure about how others do it.
  6. Depending on materials used to build the pack, 10-15 pounds is accurate. I feel you though. I have spine issues and cannot wear a backpack for very long. I am plain old Sandtrooper for however many years now.
  7. A pack is required for PO (level 2)In order to go SWAT (level3), you have to already be PO.So, If you wish to go SWAT, and choose a character with no pack (like Road Block Captain V.2) , you still have to have a pack, because you cannot go SWAT until you have been approved as PO. And in order to be PO, you have to have a pack. But you do not have to wear the pack. You cannot go from Level 1 to Level 3. You have to go in order.If you could go SWAT without a pack, I would have already done this years ago.
  8. If they were stored on Photobucket - they are no longer able to hotlink images. Photobucket changed their free accounts around a year ago and now no longer allow hotlinking, unless you pay their ransom.
  9. It was probably the waxy finish that kept it from taking the dye.
  10. Read my edit Wool shrinks in hot water.
  11. edit - looking through all of the information on it - I believe it is cotton or canvas tarpaulin fabric. It MAY be dyeable. But it has a finish on it which makes it water repellant. Is the texture waxy?
  12. I thought they were going for basic approval.
  13. I thought you were at T4T in 2015? That was when we had quite a few sandies. Noel, Johnny, Myself, Tye and I thought you? No?
  14. Yay. I got it right. I follow that thread because I keep forgetting where it is. Had you not mentioned screenshots - I would not have figured it to be that one. I don't know who put it all together - but it is super clean and organized. As an example to show someone what can and cannot go together - I went through the effort of making them paper dolls. It helped the individual visually connect to what I was explaining. Showing them the print out and online the images of the different TDs just didn't seem to be working. But making them into a little paper doll - the lightbulb went off in their head. If you are going to get back to work on making new updated versions - make them neat and tidy (in case I need to make another paper doll )
  15. All of my DRG patches are Sandy Patches.
