Finally got by the range yesterday, in case anyone was wondering. I took some pics, but they are in my other computer, and I'm too tired to get them out. So here's my assessment.

Could have been worse, but pretty torn up. Both of the covered range areas are missing a lot of cover. The 50/200 yard range actually had the posts (BIG posts at that) come straight up about a foot out of the ground. It's like the whole covered area from end to end just got a foot taller.

The power pole is leaned onto the roof of the trailer (no power, of course). The bird houses are leaning over about 30* from horizontal. There is some debris. The fridge and freezer didn't make it. They are outside the fence awaiting trash pickup.

The ranges themselves seem to be okay. The only obvious steel missing is the deer. It's up at the trailer now. The #2 marker at the 600 yard line was either down or gone. The rest seem to have weathered it okay. The berms appear to be fine.

So bottom line, other than needing more sunscreen and having to yell to make the line cold, it's still a shootable range.

Mike, I'll try to get those pics to you by this weekend so you can put a special section on the web page if you would like.

So..... That being said, when are we gonna try to get together?

Are you free next weekend? Wanna plan on meeting out there then? I've got money and 2 DVDs sitting here with your name on it. Is that enough of a bribe?

To be honest, I have no idea if I'm free next weekend. We still have a few sites down (hopefully those will be back on the air by the middle of the week), but there's always the possibility that I'll be going to New Orleans to work on our market over there. Hopefully I'll know more toward the end of the week.

If I call in sick, they may figure there's no need for those preventative shots they have been talking about, and just go ahead and send me to New Orleans quicker.

Actually, we didn't meet this weekend. Woody was in NO and I was working. I did meet up with Scott on Friday. We are planing for next weekend.

Hey now, not yet. Let's not rush me off to disease and riot land. I've actually still been doing mainly the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I have something like 200 pictures from my travels so far. I'm off today (Monday), and if I get enough done around here, I may run out there later today. But this weekend sounds good to me if I can get free....

Not where we use microwave. And after this latest storm, we have lots of microwave up now. We are still over 90% T1, but the licensed microwave idea is catching on....
