I'm ready for opening day
« on: April 07, 2015, 07:36:30 AM »
Spent the day yesterday getting all my camping and fishing gear ready for the most important day of the year...Put up my tent and cleaned the dirt out of it. Put new line on my fishing reels, cleaned and oiled them. Restocked my box of camp cookware. Cleaned the Coleman stove and small BBQ. Bought more propane bottles. 

Went to Bass Pro Shops and spent about 120.00 bucks using the gift cards I have and still have 150.00 dollars left on the gift cards.

Today I'm going to spend most of the day reloading bullets, going to reload 1000 rounds of 9mm and 1000 rounds each of .38 and .357...

Sunday I went to a new home const. site near me and collected a bunch of firewood, made 4 separate trips and stacked all the wood....

Leaving on the 22nd and as usual I know I will be the first one in the campground in French Camp... Will spend one week for the first trip of the season...

Excellent retired, definitely sound ready.

Life without music, laughter, and an Eastern Slope BBQ would be a mistake.

R96, have to say I think your style is awesome.  Enjoy the anticipation, the excursion and shoot the  #^&! out of the targets!

About 6 years ago I get to French Camp unpack everything and find out I forgot my Coleman stove...Had to make a run to Mammoth to buy a new one that seemed to cost twice as much as the one I left home..  That was a expensive mistake....

Nope, Nope, Nope ...you need to start about 2 months out that way you can thoroughly enjoy the anticipation . The trips themselves go to fast so it's my way of prolonging it  :camping: :fishing3: :pie2: :hiking2: :doglick:
