I've always enjoyed a new view, and clicking the pics will give you a new view to.
Last night's sunset at Ben Avery's gun range. It was a cloud free sunset, which is actually the norm for Arizona.
Today was a chilly day for preparing to leave tomorrow. I've always enjoyed getting ready to go someplace new; the anticipation of being someplace I haven't been for a while always makes me happy, or maybe I should say happier because I'm almost always happy where I'm at, or where I'm going. And this winter, I've been happier than normal because I've been changing locations more often, and like I said, going someplace new makes me happy.
I took my last unlimited hot water shower, even though it was pretty chilly walking back to the bronco. And I washed some clothes even though I didn't need to; I wanted to do it now because the laundry room is only a couple hundred feet away, and I'm the only one here.
There's really nothing different I have to do to get the bronco ready to travel that I don't have to do every time I go to the grocery store. So the bronco takes almost no preparation to move to a new location. I put things away that can fall and break; I topped up my water tank even though I really didn't need any, but the spigot is next to the camper so it was too easy to pass up. Then all that's left is to crank down the roof; which is actually the most time-consuming thing that I do to get ready to travel, or go to the store. There's really nothing to it. So in a sense, you could say the bronco is always ready to go.
I already put some fuel in the truck the other day, so the tank is full; my factory tire pressure monitors tell me the tires are okay. Unlike traveling with the Arctic Fox, traveling with the bronco is only slightly different from traveling in just the truck. And my stress levels which would usually start building up the closer I got to pulling the Arctic Fox out of the campground, are totally gone when thinking of toting the bronco to a new location, because like I said, it's just like driving to the grocery store, it just takes a little longer.
In this picture it's easy to see how the steel shavings in the cartridges the mounted shooters are using fall to the ground just a few feet from the muzzle of their revolvers
It takes a lot of concentration to do what these mounted shooters do. I generally fall off a horse whenever I lose sight of the saddle horn.
You would think that having guns go off this close to the horses ears will be pretty uncomfortable for the horse, and I didn't see any of the horses wearing hearing protection.
This was a lucky picture, I actually caught the balloon in the process of breaking.
I wouldn't want to mess with this grandma, she looks like she's just looking for somebody to shoot.
