    Hi everyone! My name is Shawn and I'm currently active with the Alaskan Garrison. I have both TD and TS costumes and I am affiliated with both MEPD and Blizzard Force. I recently retired from the service last year and will be relocating in 2020. Boise is a strong candidate for our new locale. We have a son who will be a senior this fall and we are headed down for a college visit to BSU next week. Looking forward to it!

    Welcome to the message boards, Shawn! Would you have time while you're in town to grab lunch or meet up with a few members in the Boise area?

    Maybe! We have a list of "to do's" while we are visiting. College visit for the kiddo and looking at different areas for homes. I'll bring a couple AK patches and my trading cards in case I can sneak away!

    Certainly, as Erin said, when you know your plans do tell and perhaps we could join you for a bite and introductions.

    Really enjoyed the university and we have loved what we’ve seen of Boise. I’ll be here until the 31st and would love to trade some AK patches I brought for some Timberline swag.

    I'll have to see if I can find my way over to Boise, a lot going on but would be good to say hi.

    Welcome down. My wife and I are both Alaskan transplants (Anchorage). She was born and raised and I was there 35 years. Came down after retiring and we live in the Pocatello area (Idaho State University is here). My wife has a Darth Traya and a MMCC approved Brigade level Beast Hunter.

    I have a Shadowtrooper, MMCC Mando, and a RL Tusken, which I am working on some mods to make it 501st approved.

    We’ll be back down in the future for sure. This was primarily a trip to do the college visit. I’ll be at 10 barrel downtown today at noon for a quick bite before a VA appointment at the university.
