Couple of cardboard boxes......

Was moving some stuff around in the gun room and grabbed two boxes off a top shelf. Before I handled them I assumed them to be empty. Uh, no. First one had a test fired only SAR-1, the second a test fired only M70 underfolder. Please Lord, let me live long enough to go to my sale.

I traded my SAR-1 for a Camaro.



I-55 in Crystal Springs Mississippi after the coil burned up.



I-81 in Radford VA after the differential grenaded (and gloriously with great plumes of smoke I might add).



Haute Cuisine in Crystal Springs while I was waiting for parts.



Had to get the gizzards.



Dinner in Radford while I was waiting for parts.

Unplanned stops are the best stops, sometimes.

Especially when the are semi-planned “un-planned.”

I did learn one thing about traveling light:
ALWAYS buy a pack of clean underwear at Walmart when the opportunity presents during detourous road trips!

Ha! Timberwolf....If we all had such luck. However, I was digging around a parts box a while back and found some HK parts I never got around to installing and totally forgot about. Also found some old 5 rounders fell out of the box that I got my MAK90 in about 1994. Ton of oiler bottles, sight adjustment tools, and slings that I totally forgot about....but no underfolders.
