Stopped by the range and fired a few last minute rounds on the way home today. Pretty much packed tonight. Rolling out after work tomorrow. Staying in Stillwater.

Looks like the wife and daughter are riding shotgun for the road trip. Anything for them to see near Pawnee while I'm doing gun stuff?? None of us have been to Oklahoma.

Not much around Pawnee, Tulsa is an hour east, plenty to do there. Hanging out at the Run N Gun can be pretty entertaining...if that's out, Stillwater, OK is about 25 minutes west. Restaurants, shopping, etc....

I'll be at the Run N Gun site this afternoon, painting targets, etc...

B17 - free tip if you're staying at the Pecan Grove:

Do NOT knock on Nuttz' hotel room door. Ever. Just don't do it.

You guys have fun, tell everyone "hi" for me, and go and crush this thing. When you think you've really screwed up, or that you can't possibly run any more and are ashamed at how out of shape you are, remember: everyone else is thinking the exact same thing. And somebody is probably trying not to crap their pants while they are running too - it could always be worse.

Made it safe (guns too with no issues), had lunch will Al, Alan, and Nick outside Tulsa (thank you for the invite Brother, damn good tacos). All checked in at the "world renowned" Pecan Grove in bustling metropolis of Pawnee Oklahoma! It is hotter than a freshly f@cked fox in a five-alarm forest fire here!!! The suck is going to be epic!

You can be a real fun-sponge sometimes.

Good luck everyone!

Good deal. How about our 20k folks? Did they all finish both runs today? I heard one quit at 10k with knee problems.

I can't imagine doing my first 20k in that heat...

Wow. Glad you all made it out and back.

The more pics the better. Mostly because I miss your beautiful mugs.

Yes.
Me too.
Yes indeed.
Well I do love you guys, but not sure about "the beautiful mugs" other than our NC friend

Well, I do love you guys anyway. Be safe tomorrow too in the heat.
Remember that being an RO does not make you invincible gents

Don't worry about it, he's never had sex with my wife. He doesn't truly understand physically demanding endeavors.

Seriously, that means you're going to have a story to tell when you're done. We live life for the stories. Good luck and have fun. Let us know what steak your order at Clicks.

He forgot to say "this year." With all the crazy stuff he's done, there's just no way.

Now get out there and kill this thing - you got this!

So I gave her shit for not painting her nails for the event. She redeemed herself during her wait time.



She should be almost done with the long discouraging road to the woods by now.

Awesome! Why didn't YOU paint your nails for the event? Now that you're a full fledged girly-man it'd fit right in.

Says the guy sitting in the air conditioning while you guys are all out working your butts off in the heat.
