They came from near. They came from far. They came to laugh and hug and talk and celebrate. What were they coming for? HowdyCon 2017.
And just what is HowdyCon? It’s a wild and wooly get-together of the commenters and contributors to Tony Ortega’s blog, The Underground Bunker. Started in 2016 and named for Steven Cox’s alias Captain Howdy, the denizens of the Underground Bunker decided they wanted to dare the impossible and bring their tight-knit commenter community into real life. Not only did it work at their initial meeting in Cleveland in 2016, but it was so such a good time that a tradition was born and so they did it again, this year in Denver, Colorado.
Some of us attendees only had to drive down the road to get there, while others flew in on Squirrel Airlines from all over the United States and even as far away as Ireland. What is it about the Underground Bunker that would call people together for such an event?
What does The Underground Bunker provide? It’s not just news and current events about the world of Scientology. Here’s what the Bunkerites say:
And what about Our Proprieter, Tony Ortega?
For me, The Underground Bunker was one of my first and best sources of information about Scientology. In fact, the information Tony provides helped me to step out of the cult mindset and start seeing that everything in the world of Scientology was not as it appeared. When I first stepped out from the bubble world, the Bunker community welcomed me with open arms and has been a great source of inspiration, support, friendship and love. It was my pleasure to attend HowdyCon 2017 and meet up with everyone. Thanks to you all for what you do in watching and helping people like me. Keep on keeping on you guys!
