Richard Froude's FABRIC is a burial shroud and thread-map in service to forensic anthropology, and we've just entered a sizable swath into evidence at Tarpaulin Sky:
In May 2003, I drove into the mountains with a friend, a retired army Colonel, and a minor broadcast personality, to discharge firearms in the Roosevelt National Forest. We ate cold grilled chicken from zip loc bags and drank cans of non-alcoholic lager. I carried a .357 Magnum in a holster, the chicken in my hands and a twelve gauge shotgun strapped across my back.Click here to read more of Richard Froude's FABRIC.
The Colonel provided the weapons, my friend purchased 500 rounds of ammunition, the media personality brought a single handgun (wrapped in a red handkerchief) and drove us in a pale blue SUV.
What did I bring to the occasion?
A willingness to participate. A foil for the Americans. A canvas on which they would illustrate the things they most valued.
