I won't go into detail, but I did something "wrong" 13 years ago that just caught up with me. Seems I'm going to spend 7-10 in Coscalla Federal Prison.  17 months and about 160k in lawyers fees couldnt convince a jury that what I did saved the future of 3 kids and his wife.
 Anyway, I have to turn my life over by March 15th. But I'm gonna spend the next 8 days with the kid in the Smokies and then Christmas eve and Christmas With him, then "Turn myself in". The sooner I can get this over the better.
 I dont know if anyone will still be here in 7 years or if this site will even exist so I just wanted to say goodbye and best wishes to all of you. I hope everyones futures are full of wonderful greatness. I really enjoyed this forum. All of you have been great.
 I really will think about y'all and miss my visits here. I have a couple buddies at the prison.(Guards, not inmates) They say I can go online, monitored, but I can't go to chat rooms or forums.
I have alot of planning to do for the next 3 weeks so goodbye. Keep hiking.  :)  Peace

PS, several of you have pm's and emails I sent over the last couple days. And I'm sorry if I don't get back to you.

Randy,

I know you are quite a jokester, but this one does not sound like a joke.  

You will be missed.

That is why you need to make reservations in advance. Plan your trips. Get a room with a view. Have you talked to your warden lately? Chances are even today, he has available a corner cell with — not one — but two portholes of light for your viewing pleasure.

Need a toilet? At some time in our lives, each of us does. Let Prison Planning Services help plan your next incarceration. Yes, PPS has custom packages for your convenience. Try our “In the Slammer” March special. Or perhaps you’d prefer our “Sing-sing Suite?” We pay bribes to get you that Alcatraz look you’ve always wanted.

Yes Randy, soon you could be sitting on your own little can right there in your spacious 5’ by 8’ living area . Don’t delay. Thirteen years is a long wait. Call PPS today and reserve your home in the joint and special priveleges from your neighborhood warden.

It’s a rip-off, and we do it for you!

Yeah, some people scoff at my Montbell trowel, but it's great at working a hole into rocky ground.  It would make an excellent shiv, also.

I love that word shiv. Makes me giggle for some reason.

 It's been a long standing tradition of mine to celebrate April fools day in December. Everyone expects jokes on the real day so no one believes anything.

 (I honestly am very, very sorry to a few folks that sent me emails and Im's.  Very sorry to one person mostly that is probly my best bud here. He/she even sent me their address so we could be pen pals. You know who you are.  :) That was very sweet and you are a mega-cool person.)
