  1. I bought the VoiceBooster model 1505 from TK Systems on Amazon. It does have some feedback issues, but if I keep it at about a 4 out of 10 on the volume level, it's fine. Projects my voice pretty well, but it's a bit bulky since I made my armor pretty tight fitting. Otherwise, so far, so good with it.
  2. I think I am on the one you are referring to, yes. I've not been as active lately, since it's been very busy at school, and my activity has been designated to my local garrison since I'm involved in trooping almost every week through February - including EC-ing a hospital visit. Thanks for your concern!
  3. Hello fellow Imperials! I'm a relatively newly approved member, and with December being a quiet month, I was finally able to do two troops this month. Last weekend was my first major group troop at USA Hockey Night in Plymouth, MI. Here is what made my night so special!! This is from their Facebook page...
  4. Thanks, fellas! Actually, on my first couple troops here in Michigan winter, I've needed no fans - even indoors. It's going to be a high temperature of 1 degree Fahrenheit tomorrow.... one.... single... stinking... degree... air temperature, not even including wind chill. I used RainX anti-fog wipes, and absolutely no issues yet. I did get fans for when it gets warm here in about 18 months, but no issues yet.
  5. I do not get those options when I click on my imgur photos. I'll probably not be posting many more photos, anyway. Not a fan of the photo options on this site without using the app. Thanks, though.
  6. Oh, ok - I got it. I have to go to the "images" link first, not just my direct posts. Weird. I think I have it now:

  8. Someone told me that before, maybe it was you, about the direct link option. I don't know how to do that. Is it something I do through imgur, or from here?
  9. Ha! You are correct, sir. You must either be from Michigan, or know someone who complains about it. We've actually had a very mild winter until recently. Activity has picked up, and I am Trooping pretty much every weekend now through February.
  10. Howdy fellas and ladies. Thank you all for your help in building my TK. I was approved around Thanksgiving, but Trooping events were slim pickin' around here (Detroit area) in December. I wanted to post a photo of my very first Troop. This is an event called Chilly Fest... no, unfortunately, not a chili cook off. It's an indoor/outdoor event in the Detroit, MI (USA) area for kids. I ended up the only TK to show up, due to the weather (I drove through a bad snowstorm, and my AT-AT was in the shop). I had a great time! The kids who weren't scared of us loved it A Merc was the only other 501st representative, but we made the best of it. Thanks again! https://imgur.com/a/o8GCCPH
  11. There was a public relations person there taking a lot of pics. She said she would e-mail some to me, but nothing yet - Christmas Eve, and all. I'll share some for sure when I get them
  12. Fortunately, the media never showed up. I was informed by some of the admins of my local garrison that media interviews are ok, with buckets off, and I was sent the list of do's and don't's about what to talk about. I'm glad they didn't show up, just to not have to deal with that, but I had an absolute blast! The responses by kids, adults, everyone was so awesome, and I know that being there in that fashion helped to spur more donations (it was for the Salvation Army). One guy even said, "Best bell ringer ever," and proceeded to put a $20 bill in the bucket right at the end.
  13. I like that suggestion, and I am going to try to get a spotter. As for the media, I am going to ask the Salvation Army PR person not to invite them, but I will see what I can do about being an event coordinator for future official troops in this area.
  14. Thank you! I have since exchanged some messages with our local garrison people, and this is ok to do. I was advised the same way about an interview, and even though I know what to say and what not to say, I will inform the PR director who was going to set it up that maybe it is best not to invite the media. I'm actually embarrassed about the attention, as I only wanted to help out, and maybe spur more donations being in my armor. It was never my intention to have such a fuss made about it, so I will ask them not to invite media, just to be on the safe side. On the other hand, I will tell the PR person that in the future, I'd be happy to do what I can to coordinate an official event. The idea of having a spotter is a good one, since it is difficult to see if someone is trying to steal the donation bucket. Thanks for all of the support
