Its a bitter pill for me to swallow……it was this bootcamp or a new dishwasher……unfortunately the new dishwasher won (well technically the Wife won).
As if that wasn’t bad enough, the new dishwasher was delivered this afternoon and I will be going home after work shortly to install it.
Oh fate. Cruel fate. Why do you mock me so…………you [email protected]@@@@d!

That’s harsh. For me it was a holiday got in the way of the boot camp and who knows what blocked the Kickstarter.

Real life eh? 🙂

I can relate dude! The bootcamp started on my missus’s birthday – I did broach the subject of celebrating early but quickly realised the error of my ways! 😉

Great tables again. Really like all the cars and debris that got the dirt and grime treatment.

Wish I was there the tables are great. Only thing that is missing may be the soundtrack to the original Dawn of the Dead playing in the background.

Has civilization broken down in the room yet? At some point the players should be looking out for their own well being over the fate of other humans!

Gutted, I would of loved to attend this but with my life at the moment and 4 kids it was not going to happen… i think someone else has already said it happy wife = happy life. My walking dead kickstarter came through last week so will be very interested to hear how everyone gets on with it this weekend.

Have a great time all and maybe I will make it to one next year.
