Fun at Nationals

We had a fabulous time at Nationals this year.  It was so great to see everyone again.  We rented an RV and became Trailer Park Trash for a week; and, had a ball staying on campus and not having to fight the traffic. We shot 800 targets in a week, and I have to say, by Thursday morning, I was tired.  We don’t shoot that often and are not used to it, but, it was so good to shoot and realize why people love this sport.  We met a lot of new friends and enjoyed ourselves.   We were able to have good weather for our Nationals and left on Friday morning as the front and wind was moving in.

 We left Friday morning and drove to the 74 Ranch to hunt quail for the weekend.  The wind was blowing so hard we chose to hold our birds till the next day when the winds were going to be less.  Several groups went out and said it was quite challenging as the birds would catch the wind and really fly.  It’s always a pleasant trip to the 74 Ranch talking with Milo and eating Tan’s wonderful food and of course there are the fresh cookies.

 On to our next destination Sunday afternoon we drove to the bay house to check on how the pier project was coming along.  They were almost through with the pier and then they need to work on the boat stall, which was damaged in hurricane Harvey.  We brought the boat down and parked it in the front yard till we could get it in the stall.  That took a week but now we are whole again.  Just need to get Brian’s boat down there this week and get it in the stall.

 We leave on the last trip of the year tomorrow to Georgia to a new club to us—Garland Mountain.  When we get home on Sunday, we plan on being pretty useless and spend some time fishing.  Will let you know how that works.
