Eh, why not. This is the best one of me I could find, and it's scary how much I look like my dad.

EDIT: God, I don't think there's one photo of me without my glasses askew.

I took this last night after I got home from the concert, (2 hour drive there, 4 hours there [1 and a half of which were spent jumping about and acting like a retard] and two hours back) and I look like a friggin' zombie. But the shirt is kewl, so...

i dont know what dead rising is, so that means nothing to me.

the latest picture i have of me is me lying on the floor after being hit in the mummy-daddy button with a pool cue. I dont want to post a pic of me crying in the foetal position on this site, though.

on the plus side, i wont be having any kids.

I finally got my crappy scanner to work, so my first pic posted will be of my pride and joy, Kenneth Jr, also known as Lil Bud. :bs

I also took the liberty of putting all the pics on the site's server. Since pics hosted on other sites tend to go missing, and those little red X's are SO irritating. :AM

nah, he was pissed at his mom. He did not want to go back home with her. He wanted to stay with dad. So he was wanting to get back in the hotel room where I was staying at the time. :bs

Lmao! Well, Lil Bud needs no help from his dad to get in trouble with his mom, he is a chip off the old block and has the keen ability of getting into trouble, just like his dad. :bs

Dude, nice pic. What unit are you reenacting with? For a time I was with the 9th SS Panzer Division Hohenstaufen. Yeah I know it is a nazi outfit, but damn we had fun and the unit commander absolutely did not let any nazi-wannabes or skinheads in the unit. It was very apolitical.

Although, the patch on the staffs arm looks a lot like the "Old Reliables" 9th Infantry Division patch. So that would be my guess.

Yup the 9th. I'm going to eventually get the $$$ to do German and do GD with a bunch of guys from my US unit that go out as GD for OstFront stuff. They want to kill Soviets... not meet them on the Elbe (as one of the scenarios is every November). They usually fall in with the 21st Pz as a Kampfgruppen so to speak.

Man I remember the good times we had reenacting some of those East Front battles. :bs Good stuff.

The Gross Deutschland Unit would be a kick ass unit to reenact with. And about costs, yeah my SS uniform and equipment, I had the cammo smock, helmet cover and the Sturmgewehr 44, set me back almost three grand! :ad

As much as I hate to say it since it just supports everyone but the US (economically) a lot of repro companies are using chinese made uniforms for the Germans... Its dropped prices a bit drastically at a few places. I can get a decent impression now for the same amount that would get me a feldbluse and trousers.

hmm.. generally, when i see people wearing military style clothing for no observable purpose it scares the shit out of me (especialy my local posty - he wears the light grey/blue grey/black camo pants and shirt on his bike when he's doing his rounds). But for you i'll let it slide.

lol, Yeah Benno sometimes you gotta wonder, but some folks like me, and I suspect Wolf, is the we do it for our love of history.

@Wolf, yeah and I also believe you get what you pay for. Some of my friends have told me the Chinese stuff falls apart REAL fast. So fast that you spend more in the long run replacing items that if you would have gotten the expensive stuff in the first place.

yeah At the Front is a decent provider of US and German. WWII Impressions is great for US but the price matches the quality so things run a bit pricey. I like grabbing from the different reproduction stores, helps make a crazy colored uniform to reflect a bit of historical accuracy that my M41 Field Jacket was made somewhere else different then another guy's.

Me at "Tunisia" (Stoddard Valley, CA) last weekend:
