We got back about a week ago from a 5 day trip to Walt Disney World. I was pretty impressed. You get of the airplane and get on a Disney bus. You don’t step foot off Disney property until you’re back in the airport going home. The whole experience was cool. I was really amazed at how well-oiled of a machine it was. You can find the pictures with the rest of my galleries (over 700 pictures).
The new lens performed very, very well. I forgot my tripod, so all the fire dancer and fireworks shots were taken hand held. Next time I’ll remember.
Work’s a bit of a drag lately. “Do more with less” is a common theme. Zero overtime.
I’ve been going to bed early and getting to work early (well, earlier than I normally do). It’s nice walking out the door at 5 instead of 7. Come home, eat dinner, drink a beer, watch some TV with the wife, play on the computer, asleep by midnight.
Went shooting last weekend with my father-in-law. Went out to the desert and shot steel targets at 300 yards. I’m really starting to like the hi-power rifles. I’m contemplating getting bolt-action .308…probably a Remington 700 SPS Varmint. The semi-autos are fun, but man do you go through a lot of ammo. And at .50/each, it adds up quick. .223 is not much better….I go through 100 rounds almost without thinking. Sure, it’s only $30, but I’m doing it twice a month….that really starts to add up. I’ve been saving my brass as I will be reloading just as soon as I own a garage.
