You can find the goods at:

Much better than their old yahoo mailing list...

Thistle, ya beat me to it!  Thanks!

Our forum development team always liked the SMF theme,
hence we chose it.  It will be tweaked in appearance for our
needs shortly.

We're close to reaching our first 100 members there, and
it's off to a very nice start.  We've news of people moving
to Wyoming nearly every week now, which is always exciting.

All are welcome; come join us there!

BTP, two problems:  Age is sorta secondary, but my raging hostility toward hard water is the Master Override. :)  Anything below 60F and I'm miserable.

But for that, I'd have been there back around 1972, when the concept first struck me.

Just saw this, thanks!  Wish I had seen this before asking about the jamboree.

Not sure, but yes, these boards do that once in a while.

Not sure what happened, but the FSW forum is down. The Admin says it should be up again by this evening. We'll find out more at that time, I suspect.

In the meantime, doesn't that make today a perfect time to go out shooting?  :laugh:

That's where I'm going!! MamaLiberty

It was raining a little, but not too bad. Temp is up to 39 degrees and no particular wind. Almost perfect shooting weather.

Next time I go out, I'll shoot a few for you Devildog. Let me know when you are coming and you can go out with me!!

I can't tell you how wonderful it is to be in Wyoming! Wish you were all here too. :) ML
Title: The Free State Wyoming forum is dead.
Post by: MamaLiberty on July 30, 2013, 03:33:40 pm
The Free State Wyoming forum is dead.

Long live the Wyoming Mavericks! (We may change the name later, but
that's it for now.

As of today, there is no more "Free State Wyoming" forum, and I have not
been able to load the regular FSW information website today.

The FSW forum went dark about a month or so ago, and nobody I know of
has heard from Boston T. Party since the FSW Jamboree the end of May. We
don't have a clue what's happened or what he plans. We had no warning at
all and he has not answered emails. We hope he's ok, and wish him well.

So, a bunch of us have decided to rename and rebrand our
non-organization, and go forward. The mission, as always, is to
encourage good people to consider coming to Wyoming, and to join us
living in freedom wherever they are by being people of integrity,
non-aggression and self reliance; good neighbors doing what they can to
withdraw from the theft and coercion of government however possible.

We've done away with organization memberships or pledges, and if there
is enough interest, we may well expand our endeavors at the forum to
include Montana, Idaho, and (if it flies) Northern Colorado.

Take a look at our new forum home:
https://thementalmilitia.com/mavericks/index.php

Most boards are visible to anyone, but a few require registration. No
personal information is required to register, only a valid email address.

Take a look, and I'd love to hear what you think of it.

why not include northern Nevada. There has always been a large libertarian/freedom streak in Nevada.   More so than Idaho and Montana in my experience.

That would be great! Just need to have a few folks from there who are interested in being part of our forum. Have everyone register and make the suggestion. We're going to be a LOT easier to get along with now that we're not tied to FSW.

I like that new approach. The whole great leader thing was kind of unpleasant. Whether intended or unintended.

Thanks! We certainly hope to be an example of the voluntary society. "Leaders" only in the sense of being experienced resource people, happy to have another friend, not a "follower."

We have heard from Boston. He actually joined the Mavericks forum and posted. Says he's located the former admin for the FSW forum, and expects to have it back on line soon...

I'm afraid it's too little, too late. The FSW forum was nearly dead in the water since this June, and not really active before that for quite some time.

But we'll see what happens. In any case, the Mavericks are here to stay. :)

It's ALIVE... sigh

The FSW forum is back up. No new member accounts can be created just now...

Seems it was taken down by the host company because it got hacked and someone was sending out a jillion spam messages from it. The software had not been upgraded in ages, and NOBODY was doing anything to really monitor or maintain it at the tech level for many years, so this is not a surprise.

I hope Boston gets it fixed. He says he's got a new admin for it. I wish him well, and I will probably visit occasionally, but I doubt it will ever be the same. What a waste.  In any case, I don't think the Mavericks are going away.

I wonder if that happened around the same time that survivalblog was shut down for a few days? Same people responsible, maybe?

Yep, seems to be. I don't look at it very often anymore. Don't know who's footing the bills there now, but I have expected it to fold for a long time.

Why would you want a freedom oriented anything to fail? Are you an FSW member?
As an early founding member, I'm very sad to see the FSW become a mere memory.
