Words cannot express..


If you were at Pennsic this year, and you were in camp at just the right time. You witnessed an event so mindbendingly stupid and funny that words cannot describe it.

Somehow Trent (AKA Danger Trent) obtained a parachute. How he obtained the parachute is a story best left for another time. When he mentioned this fact I asked to see it, thinking it was just the canopy from an old parachute, which might be put to use as a shade of some kind. What he produced was a complete rig, including harness. Well.... that kind of toy is just begging to played with. So through trial and error we strapped Trent into the parachute and sent him to the highest part of the camp. What happened next is the stuff of legends. All I can say is "OolalaOolalaOolala!!!!


Thank you Trent. You are a pioneer and a man without fear.

Danger Trent was truly one of the most memorable moments from this year's Pennsic. I knew there was trouble afoot when someone (matter-of-factly) said, "Eric and Rosanna are putting a parachute on Trent."

Ooo La La Ooo La La Ooo La La...

The best part for me was the stranger from the camp down the way who walked in after word and said, “You know, when people ask me what Pennsic is like, how do I describe this???”

Trent rocks!
