OKAR&R MISSIONS LOG
(Rescue & Respite ~ Rest & Recreation) 
Most Burroughs fans are familiar with the 
various ERB gatherings and conventions in the U.S.: 
The Dum-Dum, ECOF, etc. 
But more and more fans are becoming aware of a unique Canadian event - 
OKAR'n'R: Rescue & Respite 
which provides rest and recreation 
for ERB fans who find themselves lost, stranded or under attack 
while travelling in the wild northern regions of Okar - the Forbidden Land. 

Our daughter, Tara of the North and her savage calot companion, Atticus,
are always on the lookout for any trouble that wayward travellers may run into
and they provide invaluable assistance in 
our quest to provide succour to travellers in peril.
