I was lucky enough to be invited back to blogorado after attending last year. I had a great time, and it was a much needed micro-vacation.
I want to thank the FarmFam for putting on an amazing spread of food and making everyone welcome.
My cannon seemed to be a success judging from the goofy grins on the faces of everyone that shot it. It was over enthusiastically loaded at one point but about 3 minutes on the machine in the shop this morning fixed that as well as made the amount of powder that it used per shot much more manageable.
I have to apologize to Sci-Fi about shutting down the Blue Rock range but when the broken pieces of the clays were windblown over the line, it’s just too damn windy to shoot clays. Next year, man, next year. We’ll get Mrs. Sci-Fi in on it too.
OldNFO’s rifles are amazing but he and I do not have the same sight picture. However we did a fair to middling job on the 500 meter target, putting a heart and hostage shot on target so close together there was only one clang. Thanks for the opportunity to shoot those NFO, and AEPilotJim.
I enjoyed the drive-by that Lawdog and I made, thanks for driving FarmGirl, but frankly we need more practice. Though we were able to outshoot the Humungous himself, though we were unhampered by attempting to aim out of a colander.
Speaking of the Humungous, It was a pleasure to get to see Stingray and Labrat again. Don’t worry I’ll put the rifle in a corner, there is nothing one can do to them to make them any more awesome than they already are.
Salamander makes an amazing Wez, something I’d never thought I’d say. He was missed on the second day of the festivities. Hopefully next year you’ll make it the whole time.
MattG can rock kilt and a pith helmet like nobody else. The Webley helps.
It was a great pleasure to talk guns and gear with Tam. Glad to have met her, and I have to extend my thanks.
Christina is going to be my personal masseuse when I get rich and famous as a gunsmith.
I didn’t get much of a chance to talk to JPG and Holly which I regret but it’s hard to catch up to everyone at a shindig like that.
Got a work swap working with Evyl Robot and Jennifer, I’m getting a knife sheath and the opportunity to fix up a S&W pre model 10 that needs just a bit of love. It’s a win for me both ways.
Ambulance Driver, thanks for the work, and you have got to go easy on the ramrods. And thank you for the work.
And a very happy birthday to both Phlegmmy and MattG. I have to say I love the goat.
I had a fantastic time, and was glad to see everyone. Here’s to next year.
