    Thought I would post this and use this thread to tell when we get CFFers who drop by.

    Today a visit from @Pink_Vapor First time here. Hope he gets back for the @Geezer send off.

    Showed him around and we had a nice visit. He is welcome back Anytime,

    About the send off?

    I don’t think so. But it’s been discussed for the last several pages of the BO Weekend thread in the Members’ section.

    I'd love to get me down there one day. But you live in the real world and stuff.
    I've about given up on the real world.
    If you find yourself wandering around the mountains, let me know.
    Oh yeah. Tell @Michael458, bullets shoot flatter here cause the air is thinner. :cool:

    Thanks Billy! It was a treat to finally meet you and see your range, collection and take in some history.
    I hope to be back soon!

    Battery Oaks is one of my favorite places. If you don’t learn something every time you go, you aren’t paying attention, or are close minded

    @old bear pulled in here this morning. In for a few days to shoot up some ammo and "the breeze". Always glad to have visitors on the compound. To a man they usually say they feel safer here than anywhere they travel.


    As to The Sendoff......February 29th, We will start the Rolling Thunder at Noon. Nothing would make me happier than for Somebody to call the "Authorities". Plenty to eat at the diner down from us. Bring your drinks and chairs. We want all who come to sign a release form when arriving. The Wizard will be here for all that want to try for the ever elusive Wizard Tee Shirt.

    I think I would lose my command! She'd keelhaul me fer sure, then make me scrape the cable, holystone the decks and sleep in the maintop. Probably launch a wee skiff halfway to Corvo Island and put me in it with a day's water ration.

    Ok, I'll see y'all there!

    My folks live in Longs so I'm down that way several times a year. One of these days I'm gonna make my way over there if you'll have me. Might bring the old man with me if that's ok.

    I finally got to meet @Have gun-will travel today. He a nice man but he will upgrade his street cred hanging around the Conway crew. It was good to finally meet you, Raymond.

    Today we had a grand time with @Geezer and @Have gun-will travel. Randall was by to pour some concrete for RS Quilt Cottage. The Wizard killed us all....no big surprise there. Tomorrow more visitors for shooting and eating. Stand by for Names.

    I know I'll never earn a Wizard shirt but I'll keep trying. That dang ol' timer gets in my head and I shoot faster than I can.
