M/D Frozen Nutz Shoot 01/26/2013

All,
Time has come to pick a date for the winter shoot. The dates I have in mind are Jan 19 or Jan 26. What say you? At this time there is about 12-16 inchs of snow on the road leading into the property. Haven't broken a trail in yet. Might have to see about plowing, if we get more snow. But that is in the future. As always camping is your option.

JMc PM sent.

All,
Was at the property on Sat and made it in 2WD. Some ice and packed in snow on the road. Fire wood level is low, and we might need to cut some for the day. (my chain saw is broken, if someone brings one it would be a big help) I'm going to make pulled pork or chile for all, haven't decided which yet. If anyone was planning on bringing chile or soup, say so, so I don't make the same thing.

For eating Karl I don't have the heart to spike one with tannerite after she spends all the time to make them. I'm sure you guys will find them interesting.

All,

It's been cold (sub 0 wind chill) with about 3-4 inch of snow. Should still be able to get in with a 2WD unless we get more snow on Friday as there calling for. Sound like some wood and chain saw are covered. Talked with the local cop, and there should be no trouble unless the neighbor starts some. Decide to make chile, being it's going to be so cold. Till later.

Shooting starts around 10:00 depending on how much is drank on Friday night. Sounds like Deltaten and Justashooter are not going to make it after all. As for the weather, we got a few inch's of snow last night, and we are getting close to 20 degrees during the day. Looks like it will be cold on Sat. (not like the worst weather we have had at the winter shoot).

this big boy is stuck up on the canadian border in maine right now, and can't make the festivities because of his workload. let's just say that high temps have been below zero here this week.

go ahead, have fun without me.

Bill, if Russ were coming I'd say the ammo is sold but he is sick and doesn't feel like freezing. As for justashooter lmfao if you want to special order a cupcake in that shape I'm sure my wife would make one for you if that's what you really want

Count me in for the soup! My wife is sending homemade fudge, hopefully I remember to load the chainsaw, but the fudge is more important anyway.

I'm packed up and ready to go. Bad news is the wife is sick and wasn't able to bake today. She said that if she feels better she will bake for Sunday.

Another great shoot Roger! "Frozen Nuts" lived up to its name for a change. If anyone went away hungry, it was their own fault. The chilli and soup hit the spot on a cold day.
See you all next time. Hopefully my FAL will be more than a kit by then... lol

Want to thank everyone for making this a safe and fun shoot. It was good to see old friends and make a few new ones. As always, the food, fire and friendship was good. Sorry, for those that wanted to make it, but couldn't.

Till spring.

PS: Anyone have pics.
