While on the phone last night with TJIC, I mentioned I was working on completing a second knapsack - it was a half done early attempt, but I thought since it was mostly there I'd go ahead and finish it - maybe sell it off or trade for som'n.
"But I had this great big pile of materials left," I say, "so before moving I'm kinda going all Whisky Rebellion on it." Being the nut he is, he got the reference immediately.
All of that is why it was so cool seeing this post this morning from Mark in Ulster on a tale of the Western Insurrection - the Whiskey Rebellion as I've always heard it called.
Skimming through it some on Google Books, it looks right fun. Sorta reads like Cooper. Neat stuff - thank you Mark!
