3946 Miles were driven. (in four days!)
Too many dollars were spent. (we budgeted for the trip but found things ...)
Many smiles were shared. (with family and friends.)
A new radio was purchased. (new to me but older than me!)
Lots of ammo was expended. (a 50 cal ammo cans worth and then some.).
A new (To me) gun was purchased. (purchased but not in my possession yet.)
Many meals were shared. (and it rained every time I grilled!)
A few pounds were gained. (we won't talk about that.)
Much stress was relieved. (the computer was ignored more than I have on ANY prior vacation.)
Much wildlife was watched. (and captured on film.)
A small town festival was attended. (Clancy Day!)
And a parade was watched. (marching band had maybe a dozen kids.)
More posts to follow with pictures, vintage radios, new guns, whacked gophers and maybe if y'all are very nice maybe a picture of our new yard moose (not pictured above, that's a bull elk taken from the kitchen window of the folks house). Definitely some rants in there about traffic and vehicle issues as well as the outdatedness of the Interstate Firearms Transfer laws.
Of all that mileage, we were just outside of 50 miles from home before we ran into the only car crash of the trip. Rollover on I-45 that was already in the cleanup stages when we finally got up to it. The passenger cab of the car looked fairly intact so we are hoping that the occupants were protected by seatbelts and airbags.
