    from my buddy back east
    ------------------------------------


    In CT, the night before Halloween is known as Cabbage/Mischief/Hell night. Kids go out and do some harmless vandalism like toilet papering trees or writing on your driveway in chalk.

    A few years ago, my buddy's daughter started talking trash weeks before Mischief Night. It started as a fun game to catch them with the flashlight. Last year had the parents helping me coordinate the scaring of their kids with suggestions and texts about timing.

    This year, the kids have been planning this on Skype and text for weeks. Thankfully, one of the dad's shared the whole plan and had some useful suggestions. My plan involved some lights, several hundred feet of rope, a few logs and me in a ghillie suit.

    http://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xaf1/v/t1.0-9/10414532_10152784320236970_3214273884156216219_n.jpg?oh=3c53065f8425cac99e2b48338dfbeabe&oe=54F7B8CC&__gda__=1424745080_401c2b57ca0c91f5518082e9b87953cc

    As they approached, I was crouched down like a bush in my ghillie suit. I was pulling on the ropes attached to logs I had thrown in the woods...it seriously sounded like someone was in the woods and they were 100% convinced it was me in the woods....meanwhile I was about 3 feet from them. It was hard not to laugh. There were a whole bunch of kids, some I haven't met before... and I jumped up with a blood curdling scream and the strobe on my Olight M20 flashing on me. Greatest scare ever. Even the boys screamed like girls. Two of the dads were waiting in the street laughing their asses off.

    They actually came back for a second scare where I turned on the floodlights when they were near me. They couldn't figure it out until I stood up.

    Now I have to figure out how to top that next year.

    yep, but he's screwed himself because how can he top that next year?

    I thought the second year anniversary gift was to get a television for the bedroom.

    The good old days'eggs were big sellers that night also. They had restrictions on kids buying eggs like they were cigarettes. I used to see reports on Detroit,they would try to burn the city down.
