Hopefully I can save my pennies for this but it'll be iffy right up to the week before. We go to Shakespeare Ghost Town the 25th and 26th of October.

Working on it. It might just be the break we need with trying to get a new business off the ground. Unfortunately, I STILL need to get the RV tires replaced, smogged, and legally on the road (AFTER I remove all the crap from the inside to make it ready for travel (and the refridge is still dead) - but we BOTH REALLY want to meet up with everyone (and we're still dealing with the flooding of our ceiling a couple months ago and the soaking of our concrete slab near our garage door)!!

It's a bitch when trying to get too many things done at once!!

WE'D LOVE to see everyone and meet up with everyone!!! Amd we're TRYING to plan on doing do THIS YEAR (BOTH OF US and the RV, since we'd be bringing our kitties with us - so we'd be parking WAY AWAYS from the firing line to minimize pet-noise-trauma), but I hope there's going to be Tannerite (and no Sure-Shot fires), for those of us who ENJOY targets which react when hit.

We're working on getting almost all the crap which is currently stored in the RV, OUT of the RV, so I can get it cleaned up for a road-trip. The engine seems fine, along with the generator; we have plenty of sheets and blankets, even for the cats - plenty of kitty litter even if they feel the need to crap due to the sound, I just need to find the time to get EVERYTHING done before we head out to RR 2014 (and hope I have enough ammo for what we want to shoot)!!

EDIT:

It's my youngest brother's birthday that weekend. There's simply NO WAY I can get him and his wife & kids to come out to AZ to celebrate his birthday - UNLESS he's able to take some time off from the FAMILY (which just might be the thing he NEEDS!!! He loves to go shooting, along with his older 1/2 brother - maybe I can get ALL the guys to go!!!??? - one way or another)!!

I'll have to do some asking around the family, to see if I might be able to break the MEN free to celebrate their OWN birthdays!!!

Does anyone have objections or reservations if the missus and I bring our 8 and (almost)7 year-olds this year?
They've been to the range several times and done well and safely.

Probably we'll be doing a single day visit on Saturday, since Friday night is trick-or-treating with the cousins. If we can swing the hotel dollars for chino valley, we'll stay for dinner.

John, I have no problems with the youngsters.

Wish you could make it for the full period. I will be able to show off the house. I plan to "borrow" the garage for dinner.

I think we'll probably be able to swing the hotel for Saturday night, so we'll likely come up early Saturday morning, stay for the day and dinner, and maybe visit Sunday morning as well. We'll need to be back to Phoenix by 1 pm on Sunday.

John, sounds great.

Mike, based on the Ebola thread, you need to get the tires on your motorhome yesterday. I do have room at the ranch to park you and make water and electric available...

Is anyone who is too far away and in the south east interested in an alternate shoot on some other date? I've started a thread here.

Weet, I hope you can pull off an eastern version of RR. Who knows, I might attend one, when things slow down a bit.

For the rest of you, I would like an idea how many of you plan to attend.

To sweeten the pot a bit, I now have an electric trap. We can throw clay birds faster than before and with the foot pedal, the shooter can fling the birds for him/herself.

We will be staging from the new house. Currently planning to use the garage for our Saturday evening feast. Tours of the house will be conducted. I expect there will be electricity available for well water and lighting. I don't expect the house to be electrified yet.

The usual caveats apply. Will be doing setup on Friday (Halloween), shooting Saturday and Sunday. Bring your guns and ammo. I will have some steel targets. Paper targets will mostly need frames. Pumpkins are welcomed. I still have Tannerite on hand from previous years. I have Tom's ez-up and my 10x10 awning. Bring tables, targets, some clay pigeons and ammo. Cameras are welcome too.

For those that plan to camp, the forest is free. Will pass the hat for the hooter and Saturday night food. There will also be some camping sites available at the house from Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon.

Looks like temps in the mid-70's for RR 2014. Lows above freezing, but still brisk.

Up to the site today. The road looks better, but is rougher than a cob. Someone has a couple of rock cairns set up to guide others in, but the last one is 100 yards short of our location.

Will "borrow" the hooter from the house construction, so no need to pass the hat.

The drywall is going up in the house and garage right now. Should be mudded/taped and painted by Halloween.

How about some of you other Arizonan's making a trip up to shoot and visit with other members? Just over a week away.

Just made the hotel reservation. Me plus 3 are coming Saturday and staying overnight. We might not make it up to the site very long on Sunday though.

The fall weather pattern has been cool nights, above freezing, little to no wind, no rain in the foreseeable future.

Tomorrow, the 1st, windy, 20+ mph forecast with 25% chance of rain. Sunday 82% chance of rain. This has just shown up in the last couple of days. :cry:

Just because it is forecast does not mean it will happen. Still going forward.

Today is the mad dash of preparations and packing. Though the hotel simplifies it a little.
Tonight is the trick-or-treating.. tomorrow is the leaving early to get up there with plenty of daylight.

Looking forward to it!

Meet at the house around 8:30 AM and caravan up to the site.

Dinner will be around 4:30 - 5:00 PM. Sandwiches and Beef Stew, in the garage. House tours as well.

Only two forum members, JohnOC and myself, so far. Got today to go. Total of 9 of us shooting yesterday. This includes two lads who have not yet reached their teens!

The weather cooperated. We has a few drops of rain, but not enough to cover the guns. I only brought 14 long guns.

Really was pleased with my 1884 Trap Door Springfield. I had never shot it before so I loaded up some "carbine" loads. 55 grains of 2F Goex behind 405 grain Flat Point round nose bullets. Really nice to shoot.

Went through a couple boxes of clay pigeons yesterday with my electric whirlybird trap. Really like that thing too.

Did not discuss forum politics. BUT will probably skip RR next year unless there is a clamor for it. There needs to be an occasion for forum members to meet up and visit. Shooting at the same time helps justify the travel. RR has been slowing down considerably for the last few years. It takes quite a bit of work to pull it all together and I need to consider that before I run it again. I know about many issues that many of you face and life gets in the way of socializing.

Been that way for the fiesta. Smallest was 8 people best was 32. I got very busy this year and just had to skip it. Maybe if things go the way I hope we can go on tour....

If we had a decent range here (Fort Bliss Rod and Gun would require a small fortune to shoot there and they wouldn't let us do a lot), I'd volunteer to run one in El Paso. With the economy right now, it's hard to plan long trips anywhere.

Over and done for another RR.

Three of us today. Very laid back. Richard brought out his Johnson. VERY interesting rifle. Very ahead of his time.

Tannerite can be packaged in ziplock bags and will still toss rocks 50-75 feet in the air!
