  Possibly the same here.  Kicked off the weekend with PostScriptum.  Accidently became a very bad section leader (I took over when the section leader was killed and made a somewhat over-audacious penetration that promoted my poor section to suggest that I just uninstall the game), but we won anyway, storming Veghel as the 101st Airborne.  I even killed a few Germans (re-starters luck). 
  About to take a small vacation -- back to being a regular here in a week or two.

My parents, in their early 80's, have driven from Illinois to Texas to get a bit of relief from winter and visit for the weekend so not much more than a PBEM file or two.

Other than DCS, this weekend will be another wildcard. I was almost certainly going to get Crackdown 3, but itís getting hammered in initial reviews. Iím also teetering on whether to sign up for Origins Premium access. Itís $100 for the year, but you get access to a full catalog of games and early access to all the big releases, like Anthem. Seems like itís a good value if you were going to buy at least 2 EA games in the year...but, you know. It is still EA.

While I did get some trigger time in the Division 2 Beta this past weekend (I swear, both times now that they schedule tests, I had to be out of town the majority of the weekend), it wasn't enough, so it's back to NYC in The Division so I can hopefully grind out two to three more Shields so I can get cool character swaggy stuff for onscreen Div 2 character cosmetics prior to it dropping next month

Had to take a business trip. 

Worked in a visit to the Cowpens Battlefield in South Carolina yesterday.  Took a bunch of pictures which hopefully came out.  Will write up the battle and my pictures on my blog eventually.

Around meetings I'll be working on my Dungeon Crawl Classics characters for the scenario I'm running at MACE West.

I'll be trying out the new, up-dated version 1.3 of Operation Neva- Leningrad 1944 for TOAW 4. Facists heads shall roll!  :knuppel2:

Been playing this one as the Germans (with Danes, Dutch, Balts, and Norwegians of the III SS Panzer Korps lending a hand) for nearly a month.  I believe this has to be one of the best TOAW scenarios ever.

Only problem is that each turn against the AI takes a solid hour (and probably longer for players better and more careful than me).  So at the rate I'm going (4-5 turns a week), it will likely be early summer before I am done.

Back home in Fredericksburg VA for a funeral. No gaming but I never miss an opportunity to see the Chancellorsville/wilderness battlefield as well as Fredericksburg. My moms property in Falmouth is in Boscobel farms which is where Sickleís III corps was encamped from December Ď62 to June Ď63. Always finding buttons and Minie balls

This weekend I think I gonna rock on down electric avenue.

I worked hard like a soldier this week and I can't afford anything on tv. 
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.
