Kind of a stretch, if I could get off at noon Friday, I could get in the area by 10:00PM, shoot main match Saturday, the drive back on Sunday. Not a relaxing schedule.

AAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  OK, now that I have calmed down a bit.  It is with deep regret and frustration that I must withdraw from this year's Dept. of the Missouri Muster. 

Unfortunately, I understand the feeling, due to several things I will have to pass on the Dept Muster, too. Budget won't allow to make it a "family" trip, and I don't want to go by myself for a 5 day minimum trip because (insert drum roll here) WE"RE EXPECTNG AGAIN!!! ;D ;D ;D She's not due untill January, I'm going to have to work out how to be at Grand Muster, since it's not 10 hours from home.

Overnighting in Cody, Wyoming.  Will be going to the Buffalo Bill Historical Center (again) tomorrow and will see what else there may be to take in here, then a relatively short jaunt to Casper for another day of poking around, then heading towards Sargent ....

My Springfield will arrive tomorrow afternoon according to UPS. then I will hiot the road and probably drive as far as Lincoln or Kearney. That should make the Thurdsay drive easy. I need specific information about the site and if there are any tricks to getting there. is that posted somewhere?

Start with that, if you want to park at Jerry's house with your car that's fine.  I'll have my phone on and will pm you the #.

Oh, Doug if you come on up do make the hard right turn when you get to the top of the irragation ditch, don't go on straight. ;D

And don't worry about Jerry's bridge, I'll test it first. ;)

I should be in Friday midday.

Just got back from a weekend family reunion in Detroit this past weekend, and I really don't feel like doing too much either . . .

Maybe I'll just plink with the Vetterli trying out different loads, shoot the Long Range and forego the Main stages. I'd be free to help out with helping to work stages then, or being under foot in the cook camp.

I pack tonight and leave from work tomorrow, 12 hour trip, will arrive Thursday sometime.  Will have my own tent to set up in camp.  Believe I have enough information to find Jerry's house but am not sure from there for directions or the ability of my car to make it to the camp.  Any help on what to so when I get to his house would be appreciated.  

A side note, just took delivery of my Springfield-Remington model 1871 rolling block 50-70.  Don't have any ammo to shoot in it yet so it stays at home this trip.  Hope to have it ready to shoot by the Grand Muster.  I am bringing my C96 Broomhandle with  stock for us to play with on paper.  Has not been shot since I purchased it, just got the ammo a couple weeks ago.

John, you know yer welcome to hang around camp.  I was talking to Jerry today and because of the dry conditions we want someone in camp at all times, so I won't be able to leave and make any needed ice/grocery runs.  I could send you or have you do fire watch while I run.

Scout,
     If you want to bring your rolling block, I should have a few extra rounds to shoot in it.  I'll be shooting my Springfield Navy rolling block in the main match.

Thanks for the offer, but my car is full as it is.  Maybe you would allow me to shoot your rolling block a little and share your load information.

I'm still out of commission.  So we never got the mulberry jelly made for the mess section.  Nor the mulberry wine for dessert.   8)
But if I can reach Delmonico, I will get him several pounds of our pork 'pepper-sage' sausage and eggs for fixing breakfast.

Have a fine muster, troopers!

Thanks for the offer Greg but the Commissary is about to hit the road.  I need to pick up dry ice and drop the bank card off to my wife and I should be west bound a little after noon.

Stopped just north of Oklahoma City this evening.  Did not get away from the University early like I wanted to.  Was still the last person out locking the doors and setting the alarm about 6:30 pm.  Then headed North on I 35.
