A insane fundraser

I've been toying around with some ideas for a fundraiser to try and help our local caching club gain funds to buy swag type item's with their logo on it. Just to get those things the money has to come upfront, when the item's get sold then the money is recouped. So it's had to say hey let's get 100 logo pins and sell them. yes they will sell, but over a period of time and I don't thing the budget is there to do such things.

So sitting around thinking of what we could do that would kind of be "extreme", I was thinking about this place in Wisconsin. My thought was to advertise this as will he chicken out or go threw with it, and have people offer what they would like to contribute weather it be a dollar, or 50 dollar's.

Since this would be taken place in Wisconsin, I think it would be fair to offer the same to their state caching group as well.

So something like this. There is a cost up front. Hopefully enough money would be raise (if I don't chicken out) that will pay for the cost of the "stunts", Then the proceeds's would then be split evenly between Wisconsin and Iowa's, caching groups.

Maybe even set it up as an event, so people can come try to strick fear into me. lol And get together for the usual cache talk and fellowship. But for those who can't make it, and as proof, take my digital camcorder and video tape it all, then upload it to a site like you-tube or viemo, so those that could make it can see.

The "extreme" part is this:

That as one part of it. Then:

and then if I'm still walking or haven tried to run away:

Well, I can't find a video for it, but it's "The ejection seat".

So my question would be would people be interested in this and again the money would first pay for the taskes, then what's left would get split evenly between Wisconsin and Iowa's caching club website's.

Make a day of it, an event you can come and try to haggle me and make me even more nervous. And if I do chicken out on the tasks, I'll pay the cost of what the task's cost, so if you can get in my head and scare me off, that would leave even more money for the two caching clubs.

So far this is just an idea and this is the first I've talked about it. Let me know what you think and if I should look more into this. So please get the word out, as I' interested if my fellow cacher would like to "knock me off" or not. lol

It's been awhile

Well, 'm almost hesitant to even post this but I know a lot of the family follows this. What I though was just a sleeping pill they had pescribed, was really an anti-depressant/tranquilizer. Which I know now you are only to be on them for a short amount of time, which I was on that one for around 5 years. So trying to get off of it, has been a scary process.

Last week my mom had to rush me to the E.R. in the middle of the day cause I had been having an annexity attack for almost 48 hours, but it turn out it was withdrawl. I couldn't breath, The only part of my body I could feel was my face. I tried to lay down in the hospital bed, but it just felt like if I laid down, I wouldn't get back up. They did get me an ice pack which seems to help a bit. My blood pressure was threw the roof, and my blood pressure has always been normal.

I was able to finally clam down and quit shaking, but the next late afternoon another one started in. Bad part was my parents where leaving for a cruse in the morning. But I had to go back to the E.R. and do a little fibbing so they would admit me. I had had about 5 hours of sleep the whole week, and I really think that was what brought it on, plus another situation going on, that I really didn't need at the time.

Thankfully the doctor was moving so I got a new one, which we where going to switch anyways cause i didn't care for her. This new one flat out told me I'm not an addict. It was given to me with good intentions just they didn't pull me off of it when they should have and they should have never had me on such a high dose.

I've been getting out and doing a little caching and making some hides. I took our dog Rusty to check on one of my caches the other night.

But they are taking a much more aggressive approach on taking me off this med, which sucks, and I can't wait till it's over.

But that's what I've been up to for the past few weeks.
