Lloyd and Marty,

Not likely there would be room for me in the truck is there?
Burke, we all can't fit in Marty's truck unless we don't bring any airguns  :'( , but we'll figure something out. Email sent. Lloyd

Wife changed her mind looks like we will be attending after all. Is there 220 service available I plan to bring my compressor?
reservations made Wife says she needs to practice. im not denying she needs it after stole me rifle last yr she hasn't used it but twice its feeling lonely so I take pity on it now and then. Wife bought me a new shooting table have to remember to bring my shooting sticks she may steal the table after she shoots on it a few times lol.

I want to attend and am hoping to be able to make it.   While I want to keep my streak alive, the 8 ish hour drive has me hesitating.

Lizzie,
Its hard to tell from your avatar, but are you tending to tomatoes (while not shooting airguns)?

I'll have a Benjamin Bulldog for sale (and to shoot until it sales). I'm also working on a new toy and it should be ready to go by then too. 8)

Haha! Great guess!
Thinking that was from last spring, when getting the garden ready. :D

I must eat, in order to be able to shoot!

It's 785 mile from here. I'm still thinking about it. My little Ponitac Slostice, two or three guns and a little tent. In the Army I lived out of a ruc sac longer than three days many times.

Go half way and get a cheap motel comin' and goin'. I tend to run the back roads. Many years driving trucks I've had it with the Intersate highways.

I'd be Route 66'in it but instead of Buzz I'd have a 470th and a Proxima and maybe my old Peak B4-2 paint ball buster in the buddy seat.
