I woke up this morning at 8 o'clock to the sound of machine gun fire. but not just ordinary machine gun fire because a normal machine gun wouldn't wake me up, this was a minigun being fired, and fired a lot.
Unfortunately by the time I got up, got dressed and drove to the range where they were at, they were gone. I'm not sure who was doing the shooting but the most logical guess would be Dillon Aero.
Dillon Aero is an offshoot of Dillon precision that makes ammunition reloading equipment here in Phoenix. some years back they got into modifying the military's General Electric miniguns and making them more reliable and apparently reached the point where there were no longer any General Electric parts on it and it became a Dillon minigun, which is what the military uses now. And Ben Avery's rifle range is one of the places they test their guns. I would like to have watched them shoot but that's the price I pay for being lazy and sleeping late.
Since I was up already I decided I would go to the grocery store and get that out of the way so I didn't have to worry about it again for awhile. Normally, since I'm never too far from a store, I don't buy a whole lot because there's really no need to, but now since I'm trying to avoid crowds and hopefully the flu I bought about twice as much as I normally would.
I went to the office when I got back and re-uped for three more days figuring that if I'm going to get sick maybe it will happen before then, and I'd rather be sick here than most other places.
Other than going to the store I'm not around anyone while boondocking here at Ben Avery's except the camp host on occasions and he's already over the flu. So if I didn't catch it while at the motorcycle shop yesterday or grocery shopping this morning I won't have to be around any people for a while so maybe I'll be safe.
This is the result of my trip to the grocery store this morning, there's even two bags sitting on the floor. I don't remember ever buying this many groceries for the Arctic Fox before.
