In Topic: What is the best vest?

Thanks for the feedback. My new plan is to do hydration bladder of some sort + pod pack. The Camelbak Rogue looks like it has plenty of storage. Can/should everyone carry radios, or only XOs? Trying to decide if I really need a vest with MOLLE. I know it has other uses, but I have pockets for most things.

etekgirl, do you know what the max size hydration bladder your bt static will hold?

LL6 will be my first scenario, so I have been doing a lot of planning. Not sure about you, but I probably won't do a scenario more than once a year, twice at the most. I was thinking of just using a backpack and throwing water bottles, pods, squeegees, etc. in there. You could even throw a hydration bladder in there. Please someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm thinking that the action isn't going to be as crazy as x-ball and we won't be pouring pod after pod. I can see it being a pain if you're mag fed since they don't have the same capacity, but going into the backpack every 150 or so shots doesn't seem too bad. Is a vest going to help that much? I understand it's personal preference, I'm trying to figure out what I'm going to do as well.

In Topic: any one else with the praetorian guard?

Been playing since about 2002. First large event of any kind. I'll be heading up there by myself, but I'm sure I'll meet some great people. Hopefully get to know some of you on here beforehand. Joined this team since I found out about this event through Mike's videos. It's motivating me to get in shape, so win-win. Also motivated me to finally join the forums, so maybe I'll be less of a lurker and contribute something. As far as play style, I like getting as far forward and into the action as soon as possible. I prefer going snake if there is one, but I'm a team player as well and can go wherever I'm needed. Can't wait!
