The background. There’s an epic dog down in San Diego named Scout. And he belongs to one of our Kickstarter supporters. And since this Kickstarter backer adopted Scout and doesn’t really know his back story, the Misadventurists did several seconds of Google searching before unceremoniously giving up and supplying their own back story for Scout […]Read More The First Kickstarter Song – “The Lucky Dog”
Continued from Part II: After we attended the practice wedding in Oncesti, we sat down over coffee with our unofficial fixer, Bud.
