Finishing My Preps To Get Underway

Took in my laptop, backpack full of DVD's, camera, and lenses this week.
Packing my rolling duffle tonight, and I'll drag that onboard tomorrow, as I hate waiting for the luggage lift they do.
Friday night I'm the auctioneer at my radio club's "White Elephant Sale" where we raise money for Field Day, and I don't want to be bothered with any support functions Saturday morning when I board the ship, so I'm 95% ready-to-go.
If the launch goes off on time, I should be back on June 9th.
The 870 is cleaned and loaded with low recoil 00 buck, and my YF and stepson know how to use it.
Her TRR8 357 is cleaned and loaded, and she also has three speed loaders ready to go.
And she knows how to use them all.
I think I can sleep soundly, knowing there's a bit of firepower readily available, along with our two 80 pound dogs......


  1. Alright, I'll bite. Where 'ya going? I never travel without my battle rifle and two get home bags. Good for you.

  2. Specifically, I'm going to 154*W, 0*N, approx 1500 miles South of The Big Island of Hawaii.
    I work for a launch services provider, and we're headed out Saturday morning to launch a satellite for Intelsat.
    Unfortunately, I'll be unarmed the whole time, but from what I've heard, we have some "defensive capability" onboard.

  3. Yep, good prep and that DOES let one rest comfortably while on the road...

  4. Prayers up for their and your safety! (and preparedness don't hurt a bit...)


Keep it civil, please....

Fabulous Fall Day

 Some of the trees are showing signs of turning, but they're not in their Fall colors yet.  This is from two years ago. We have Bumper C...
