I met my first wife at HAC.  Of course I would do it all over again.
God told me to go, to the last place on Earth that I ever wanted to see again...fbch.  So I went.

I would agree with Chugger's sentiment. I loved the years I spent at HAC. I don't agree with a lot that is done there, especially under Schaap, but didn't agree with everything as a student either. With that being said, I look back with much fondness on that time in my life and the enduring friendships that were made.

even my dad says that.... and he was only there a short while in the 1970s.. .. ...  but when someone on the fff made the off hand suggestion several years ago that i might even benefit from by being sent to hyles anderson...  he was the first person to step into the conversation and say "absolutely not!" ... ..


Oh yeah, I could just see that!  You would be bringing in wild boar's meat to the cafeteria and trying to spearfish in Lake Michigan! (And maybe having some of the classics you like to read absconded).   :)

from what i;ve heard most of my clothes would prbably be absconded too....  dad says he doesn;t know who would be in for the worse time... me or the staff who had to deal with me....  :-\  ...  but even if i could survive for a while at the college i would never make it even a week into the winter...  :o... i can;t handle the cold..... i have never been to chicago but i couldn;t handle seattle and i have heard chicago is even colder...  :o

Just carry your crossbow on campus and they'd all crap their fundy undies.

How many of you would attend it if you had to do it all over again?

Not in a million freakin years.

we flew into seattle to go elk hunting last year in washington....  and the instant i stepped out the doors of the airport the cold grabbed me like it had steel claws... :o .  ... my brother picked us up and i sat in the truck between him and my dad with the heater blowing directly on me and still couldn;t get warm.. .. . he drove straight to cabelas from the airport.... (which we had planned to do anyway)..  . walking around there for a couple of hours i finally got warm again... .. and while shopping i bought one of the biggest most wooly bear parkas they had...  . plus snow boots, insulated pants, wool socks, wooly mittens and finger gloves to go under them..plus other thermal stuff... ..   .. they probably thought i packing for the north pole.... but before we left cabelas i was wearing half of the things i bought from them... .  and then after wearing all that for a few days i finally started to get a little bit used to the cold.... .as long as i kept all that on any time i was outside.. .. .

then a couple days before we left we ended up back in seattle  and it didn;t seem all that cold anymore.. .. but there were tons of homeless people all over the waterfront and they looked cold.. . . . . so i told my dad i would probably give that big coat, and maybe even the boots, away to a homeless person that it would fit when we left... coz i couldn;t see myself ever needing it here in hawaii... . .  then on the last day we were there it got even colder than the day we arrived.... and i was shivering so bad i ended up wearing that parka, and boots, to the airport and onto the airplane... ....  i think we were halfway across the pacific before i took it off....  . .... getting off the plane in hawaii felt so good i can;t even describe it... ...    . i give you guys credit that can handle that cold weather.. .  i;m just not made for it... .  i;m a child of the tropics....  8)


Oh aL.  I am watching Hawaii Life on hGTV. Mostly about Kauaii but people moving from the mainland to the islands. Maybe someday..................

??? ......  ??? .... no.... ..  but birchwood casey gun stock wax works really well....  :-. ...  that;s what i seal with them with after a few coats of tru oil....
then i fletch them wild turkey feathers, wrapped with natural sinew and attach either flint or obsidian hand knapped broadhead tied on with gut hafting... ..

 :-


i don;t get the thing about the schaap polish.....  ??? ... .. .. and i;m almost afraid to ask... . . . is it one of those things you shouldn;t ask about, unless you already know..  coz if you already knew you would never ask about it?... ...   ???

Schaap had a famous sermon about how arrows were handmade, in which he polished an arrow shaft while he spoke.  The last time he preached it, he got a little carried away, and the video has gone viral.  He was kinda going over a cliff at the time, so it is pretty whacky....yeah you wouldn't ask, if you knew.
