Today I finally took some initiative in standing up for certain things I feel are important. I donated some money and paid for memberships to some organizations such as the NRA, the ARRL, and even the humble VDGIF (bought a subscription to Virginia Wildlife). I don't have the time and resources to do much for what's important to me, but I certainly can help in the greater cause. I'd like to join the IWLA (Isaak Walton League), my dad recently became a member and I'm pretty impressed with that organization, but there's no chapters in Kansas . Ah well, I'll be back in Virginia in less that two years, I think I'll manage.
