I loved the four facts segment. What were you doing with a metal helmet out in a thunderstorm? LARPing?

I enjoyed the show as always.

Mark Kinney said...

Nope, this was possibly before LARPing was a big thing.

It was during ConCave, years ago. I'd found the helmet at an antique store in Cave City, and it happened to go well with a trenchcoat I had with me, so I was wearing the thing around a lot.

This was the year a huge storm front ran through, knocking out the power (not so hard, as the con was held out in the middle of nowhere) and flooding a bunch of roads. At some point during the weekend, a bunch of people organized a hike out to this old carnival tilt-house abandoned out in the woods surrounding the hotel. And so it happened.
