You dropped the bike off on a Thursday and she was born the following Tuesday.

Heh, I tried to vote 2 of the final 3 out in the first rounds.

I voted independently in the first 3 rounds, then did what I could get ghwk off in round 4 when I knew I was going down.

I wanted to prove to Conklin that I could be trusted after taking the bait last time the game was on hook line and sinker so I did what he told me to in order to prove that I could be trusted.

I did try reaching out to a bunch of people after Conklin went down and I meant what I said to those I reached out after round 2ish I believe whatever round GHWK went out on, after that. I think GHWK was payback for Conklin going down.

I thought we could take out the big guns and then resort out the alliances and one of my guys could make it in to the top.

Actually I did everything I told JCM I would do for the exact amount of time I told him so I didn't turn on anyone other than GHWK in the whole game. I even helped Apa out a round or 2 per an agreement.

I thought I was very loyal to the guys who weren't trying to play me early or set me up as newbie fodder. Had a couple guys not panicked so early, and Houghton and a few others trusted me, it could have been a way different game. As it was I think I tried working with both winners. To be honest I didn't care about winning, I wanted to help someone win and prove I could be useful and maybe win one a couple years down the line.

It was very fun and a learning experience.

Anyone who teams up with me next time will get a loyal helper till mad scramble at the end.

Yep, I wasn't trying to win, just prove I could be trusted no matter what type of orders I got.

I wanted to earn trust by being a pawn. Again, if I had the votes I thought I had and the guys I was working with didn't panic one of them could have won.

Exactly.

I wanted to hold it all together until we picked off the other guys then scramble to the end when it was everyman for himself.

Since we are all divulging the details about this years survivor here is a nugget:

Conklin taking the bike out to Falconer was the reason I reached out to him after the last survivor, death by sandbox I think. That was before he told us of his help after the tornado last year in Missouri.

I figured I wanted to prove my worth to anyone who would be part of such a great OM project and help out others when needed.

Gene would have been proud of him and wanted to work with Conklin too!
