    Thanks for the thoughts everyone, hopefully there'll be more come Monday, and the hordes of SEWAnauts that somehow manage to check in at work...hehe.

    So, the new podcast at DATW is in, totally awesome, Johnny K and his 'toy for tots' fundraiser. I know several SEWAnauts get mentioned. I hope hat many more people are encouraged to contribute, despite the tough times...

    You can click my website button if you haven't discovered DATW yet...

    Thanks again for following the TR, and I hope we all can find a little to give to toys-4-tots. It's such good pub for the game. Think of how easy it is to click all your contacts or friends on FB, and email them, even if they don't play darts... Very Happy

    I just happened to check the member lists and noticed I was tied with OnAndGone in the post totals...I can't pass him without throwing out a little tribute to one of the best posters at SEWA who we lost for no good reason...

    Got this picture myself, in the Falklands...

    (This is starting to feel like my own twitter page! SEWA twitter!)

    So, just an update...

    In Miami now, found four dart bars--man there were some hot girls in some of these places, like Dartoid-worthy hot, plus some smoking hot transvestites too! In fact, I can hardly tell the age OR gender on half the people in South Beach. Anyway, conquered Miami, now I'm off on the ship, so not much posting from me probably the next couple weeks, although I'll try when I get a chance. Everybody be good while I'm gone. Also, the new podcast #10 and my second post is up on DATW. (click my www button if yer too lazy to type or search, hehe)

    Take care all! And good luck to Shannonmiles son Miles at the big competition across the pond!

    Ok, I got some crazy q's...

    1. Which dartboard (brand and model please), is the longest lasting and has the best wires (for minimal bounceouts). Basically, what would be the best board to put on a cruise ship?

    2. Which company(s) should I contact to be the darts/boards supplier for a major cruise line. And who's got some connections to companies that I can utilize?

    Feel free to post your answers here, but you can also email me at adamthornsmithATgmail.com or PM me! I have about two weeks to pull together a proposal...

    Thanks!

    So, I'm thinking I will keep the SEWA TR's alive in a sense. I always have silly little stuff to post, and DATW ain't really right for it. Like...

    Bonesy is still crushing me on ton80's. I got 21 to his 38 in about just about a year here at the Pressy Pally. If you recall, I was leading like 20 to 12 or something like that, 7-8 months ago. Serious signs of dartitis that I've been fighting like mad, and not overcoming on any given day. Sucks. But still love the game. Isaac's up to 12 ton80's at the PP, including one I beat him on last night. Bonesy friggin busted on a ton80, on 159, on purpose. beat him then too, but small victories as these guys now beat me consistently, usually badly. both are pretty exceptional shooters now...and I'm worse for the wear.

    But, I did hit a 212out yesterday! I mis-scored earlier and my total was wrong, and near the end of the leg, Isaac was on 60somethin', I told him I messed up and corrected my score to 112, and promptly took that out! Hehe. 212out, that's how you do it.

    But besides that kind of minutia, I also have at least one story (maybe more, and maybe more down the road) that would better fit my old Thorn Report, here at SEWA. So, I think I will try to dabble back into it...and give some exclusive reports just for SEWA and the PADA, and save the bigger travel stories for DATW.

    Whatya think? Should I try to two-time it on both sites? Wink

    After all, it is about spreading the game as far as we can... Very Happy

    Awww, who cares what you think; I do want I want! Wink Wink Wink

    Love darts? Need a vacation? How about a 5-star cruise to Bermuda with the guys from DartsAroundTheWorld and other like-minded people? The plan is well under way, and I’m hoping to help encourage more to join in! The week-long cruise starts on May 29th, out of New York. Not including airfare, the total cost for the cruise after taxes, will be approximately $800. And, traveling with me is a guaranteed good time, especially by boat to tropical paradise. Not to mention playing darts in the Bermuda Triangle! I'd really like to get a contingent of SEWAnauts, especially from the Tacoma, Portland, San Fran, and Vancouver, BC, areas to represent the west coast, but of course, anyone is welcome! If you’re curious, or know a friend who might be interested, please forward them this information! In fact, the more people you recruit, the more onboard credit you get, so start spreading the word, and let me know ASAP!...

    Just email me with any questions: adamthornsmith@gmail.com

    Here’s the cruise itinerary and ship info: http://cruises.affordabletours.com/search/itsd/cruises/26556110529/

    And there’s more info at:

    Hmm... Not including airfare, I'm only about $800 short... Rolling Eyes Sad

    (Well CB, what can I say. Use more of those power buzzwords Darttalker suggested, and start making the big bucks again!)

    Not sure if you've seen this yet--my latest dart-related video--but it might cheer ya up...

    "Knuck You"

    Maybe I'll see some of you at the PADA holiday shoot tonight!

    I came across your Thorn Report and thought whats this? after looking and reading about your rafting in Hells Canyon brought back many Memories as I grew up In Joseph. Sorry you found no dart boards. I know there are players out there but not really any venues. The Elks club used to have boards in the basement and would hold weekly tournament for the youth but that was a few years ago now. I much enjoyed reading about your trip and even recognize several camping spots from my past. I mostly spent my time on top of the Canyons. Wallowa County at least to me seems like no other place in the world and is a treasure to experience. Thanks for article and Keep up the reporting. I look forward to reading more of them although probably not quite as nostalgic as this one.

    Awesome Logan, memories like that are never forgotten. Glad you enjoyed some of my stories... prepare yourself for this spring--I'm traveling for three months and will have a ton of new stories going up this Spring...

    By the way, as a fellow Portlander, I assume you're in the PADA?

    After "Knuck You", everyone's been asking me for a follow up darts song...After a year and another set of song-of-the-year nominees, I found one that would work. Can't promise you it's better than Knuck You, but I like...Wink

    If you like it, spread it around the internet for me so others can enjoy...Smile
