@beornmod the weekend window for eclipse activity will be Aug 18-21 just FYI
I'm currently scheduled for work the 18th-22nd, but I may be able to go for the day on Monday
If you try to go somewhere Monday, you won't get very far I think. The eclipse is at 10 something in the morning, and we speculate that freeways and highways will be jammed.
Well I should be getting off at 430 on Sunday
If I understand correctly, we all plan on being done with operation sonnenrad by Sunday night and all camped together somewhere very remote to watch the eclipse in the morning.
Okay, I'll talk it over with some of the goys this Tuesday
Sounds like we should be able to figure something out
Nothin' will eclipse muh activism.
All hands on deck will be needed to hold banner, so you boys should plan on wearing your Cascadia flags as capes, mkay?
We're gonna be like caped crusaders in Batman masks. Too bad we don't have dirt bikes to skirt traffic.
This what we need funds for.
I thought you didn't like crusaders Jimmy
>we fund ourselves into becoming an MC
Yeah, well, I'm "flexible" on certain applications.
If they're crusading yids and hadjis, it all good
As long as it looks cool.
And makes lots of noise, I'm down with it.
Is that why you like the bagpipes so much?
Lol I mentioned something about that night with the bagpipes at the LL in the DS Discord server a few weeks ago and Weev goes "Wait, are you with the PDX Stormers?"
I'm pretty happy with how far that story went
If we can't raise the money for dirt bikes, we can at least get @BotsRob up there with his chainsaw to make the sounds and we'll just run around like we're on air bikes.
With the capes and all, I doubt any spectators will be the wiser, especially if @Uberhat is involved.
Or we could try to chain up the saw to a normal bike's spokes
>Antifa tries to jump us but they find us running in circles around @BotsRob revving a chainsaw
>Antifa slowly backs away
Once you get south of Wilsonville you can forget about encountering any serious group of antifags unless you give them notice well in advance.
To be on the safe side, we should probably keep a garbage can nearby as a decoy for them to attack.
Ten feet of resistance:
so how did you make this one?
why ten feet of resist?
You think that's the size it ought to be?
That's some fine-looking lettering, General Marr.
I do indeed like the lettering
@khimære I cut that with the new vinyl cutter. The cut vinyl letters are black and still attached to their white paper liner. Initially the paper liner was completely covered with black vinyl film. The paper backed film is fed through the cutter which lightly scores only the top vinyl layer. Then the vinyl is "weeded", which consists of peeling off reverse image portions. This is the stage shown in the photo.
The next step involves rolling out 2ft wide transfer tape over the to pick them up off the paper liner while maintaining their spacing. The transfer tape, with letters attached will then be rolled out onto a vinyl banner substrate, squeegeed down and back rolled to leave on the black letter on white vinyl banner substrate.
It's roughly 10 feet long simply because that's how much space six letters of that font happen to take up.
