Took a overnight trip out to Roosevelt forest over the weekend with a friend and our dogs. That's me and mine on top of the ridge overlooking camp.  We were about three miles from the fire road.

Calvary Arms lower with a thin-barrel 16" carbine upper and 20 round magazine, roughly 6 pounds. Maybe more now that I added the Surefire light, but it makes for a lovely camp rifle.



Plenty of Quartz around, so we built our fire ring from the crystal.


We camped on a flat spot halfway up a valley.  A creek flows down that hill where the dog is looking.


Mosin, my dog, has a pack.  He carried 40 ounces of water and his food for the trip.

    Hey, at least it sorts out the dog lovers from the cat lovers.   :cool    Now, if you accidentally managed to leave one of your books in the dog's backpack next to the food and she sort of "found" it when you asked her to get the dog's food out for you, well .  .  .    Maybe being a dog lover AND an author would be enough to close the deal on a second date.   ;)

    Ehat do these 2 pics have in common?  Pic of an SKS I bought this morning and my wifes uncle Riger who passed away last year and we had a memorial recently for (he passed in Utah and family is here in Ohio).

    Story I got from one of Roger's 1st ID buddies about that purple heart (short version)  _ Rog is walking point in Vietnam...mg opens up tKes him and 2 guys behind him down...all wounded in legs (grazing fire)...2 vc come running at them while . They are on the ground wounded with sks's with extended bayonets....Roger grabs the first ones rifle and takes it from him and then punches the snot out of him when he gets him on the ground...other vc stopped to watch the show and realized his friend just got stomped and starts to run awsy...Rog takes the sks and drills him IN THE ASS with it...both VC eventualky taken prisoners, one with a face like hamburger and one face down on a stretcher with a bloddy wad of gauze on his ass.  Rog kept the rifle as a souvenir but it was stolen months later from their base camp while they were out again.

    Rog was 5' 4" and weighed 120 soaking wet with both pockets full of nickles....

    Guy who told me the story was 10 feet behind Rog and got shot in the knee and thigh and saw it all "like in a movie" while passing in and out on the ground in shock...

    With two World Famous Authors (even if one doesn't get 500 fans at a signing). It was great seeing both of them again.
