Been splitting and stacking wood, insulating my shop, putting stuff back together. I didn’t realize how much “stuff” was stashed in the gun safe. Gonna have to do a purge. May have stuff up for brother-in-law prices at the shoot if anyone is interested.
Have to go back to work full time soon and have lots to get done before then. Weather has not been friendly for some of it.

Dave should have asked you to cure cancer or run a 2 minute mile, something a little less challenging for you to accomplish

It's working out after all. I'll be there just before 8pm.

Staying for Friday's activities, and then leaving around dinnertime. Not planning g on being fed, because I'm coming off the road / business trip, and I'm not bringing anything except rifles.

I asked to share Terry's tent, but he demurred for some reason and offered to set up a second two-man tent for me...

Take that however you will.
