Great weekend

It would be hard to exaggerate how great this past weekend was! Scott flew up from Brooklyn, and Hannah was here, and we really packed a lot in. Some of the highlights;

On Saturday, Scott and Hannah and I met Seamus and Jay at Matt's place in Milton for some epic trail riding. Matt very graciously loaned Scott his YZ250F to ride, and Matt drove his dune buggy down to the moto track for a few laps. Seamus, Jay and Scott took off on the woods loop while Hannah and I did some laps on the track. Matt gave Hannah a ride in the buggy as well. When the guys returned I went for a ride on the woods loop with them and Hannah stayed on the track to work on her moto technique.

Seamus gettin' some on the powerline.

On Sunday the family headed over to Hunter Farm to shoot some clays. In my case it was more like shoot at some clays, I missed most of 'em. Jay and Ben Danger eventually found their way over and joined us.

The latest fashion trend at the Gun Club....leather jackets

After shooting a case of 12G shells and a couple boxes of 410, we headed home for lunch.

Bonfire was next on the list, with some XR200 seat time thrown in...

Sandy got lots of garden clean-up done.

Who can resist a motorcycle fire jump? Scott couldn't.


  1. You're mounting the gun too high, and aiming; not acquiring the target properly. Just some ideas. Not that I'm a graduate of the Holland and Holland shooting school. :)

    Seriously, looked like a fantastic weekend. When it's all flowing, it's amazing how much you can cram in, seemingly without trying. That's when it's the best.


  2. Agreed.
    I need to try to shoot more than once a year, and then remember what works and what doesn't. It's almost as bad as golf, another target sport...
    Thanks for the tips.
