Claim the privilege of hunting according to the dictates of your own conscience, and allow all hunters the same privilege;
let them practice how, where, or what they may.

TROC Wins Prestigious Editor's Choice Award

© 2009 Albert A Rasch
First Place Editor's Choice Award

In what I can only say was a complete surprise to me, and to my utter delight, The Rasch Outdoor Chronicles has won the First Survival and Disaster Preparedness Carnival. Actually my post A Ruger 10/22 Rotary Magazine Tutorial won the Editors Choice Award.

When Flea at Be a Survivor first invited me to join in his carnival, I thought it was an invitation to Rio, but no, it was to a Blog Carnival.

Still hoping, I asked, "Are we going to Rio for it?" I feverishly dug through my box of assorted weird stuff, shoving aside the shrunken pygmy skull that I picked up in Little Haiti, and the ceremonial Polynesian loincloth given to me by a grateful Islander princess, looking for the carved Nordic mask of Loki, God of Mischief. "No, no, no you crazy loon, send me one of your favorite posts on survival or preparedness. By e-mail. This all done through the intnetz!" Dejected, I shoved the "box of the weird" way back in the closet where neither Al Gore nor the kids will find it...

Blog Carnivals, for those of you that aren't familiar with them, are organized by an individual and gather as many blog posts about a particular subject. Over twenty submissions were made to this one, all of them worth reading and many of them as good as it gets.

Mosey on over and take a look at some of the offerings; you'll be glad you did!

Now to make me a little widget with a trophy....

The Hunt Continues...
