Black Beards Revenge was loaded and with my brother and his son, we embarked on our 10+ hour journey south of the Mason Dixon line to meet up with one of the most hospitable Southern Gentlemen I ever had the honor to shake hands with. Brock and his wonderful daughter Dixie would once again host another PatCon in North Carolina that makes this "Good" Yankee drive south to attend. We arrived, set up camp, shook hands with Brock and Dixie and made a small fire that evening while anxiously awaiting for others to arrive. The nefarious Dixieland Peacock made sure to taunt us like the French man in Monty Pythons Holy Grail once again.

While nothing was on our plate other than an emergency Walmart run, other Patriots began to show up and we assisted them with setting up their camps and/or shaking hands. An OpSec course was held, but since its OpSec, I will keep OpSec by not saying anymore about that. ;)
A lot of smiles, laughter, and catching up with old Patriots as well as new ones took place today as we all anxiously awaited for the arrival of others. Patriots began to fall into ranks even at 1:30 in the morning. Those that dared embrace the fire, stars and spirits were there to embrace the lovely Holly and her ever so steadfast man Sam. Yes, I was up for that.
