Things have been going haywire since I stopped drinking coffee.


I would like to get out to Zion but I want to camp overnight. Shannon has never been or seen that. I would also like to get out to Monument Valley. One of the most amazing sunrises I have ever seen. Grand Canyon North Rim is on the list as well.

If you have an AR, you'll want one of these. Not sure about the price though. It's a Slide Fire stock that allows you to bump fire with the rifle shouldered. ATF has reviewed it and has determined that since it does not alter the internals or trigger, it is legal to own and operate. For now, at least.

That's pretty cool. I don't see why it's a problem. They have been selling stocks like that for shotguns for years now.

It was neat but so spread out I'm not sure how cool it is. Someday I'll get back there and explore. I passed thru on the way to a dirt bike race in Utah a few years back. I think it would be fun to do a big loop thru there, the maze and up to moab, then come back across the north side of the canyon.

Heading east...



And the same group heading home back west.



Mexican hat





The reason I was there...









I used to live about 90 minutes from the canyon so day trips were pretty common.

That sounds like a great ideas a lot of the time these days.

I worked at the North Rim Lodge for a couple seasons. Nice place. Mountain lions getting into the trash, mule deer at your porch.

My driveway out there was a bit different then the one here.



funny part, this is the closest neighbors garage... Guess where we hung out and partied!!!







crappy pics but you can see his boat in the background. LOL




And living there you get bored and start making cup holders for your weapons... AK47 in his right hand, the angle makes it hard to pic out though.



Or you build a jump on your property and see how far you can launch your truck in your backyard... The big divot is where my skidplate augured in!



My friends truck going off the jump with the neighbor who has the bar in his garage riding shotgun. My truck and house barely visable on the right. (can you tell I'm bored at work right now??? LOL)



Small canyon we use to explore about 5 minutes from teh house.

It was all hand built by him and another neighbor in the area. It turned out amazing!!! Someday when I'm out there I'm going to get better quality pictures of it!

being built...





The garage is an "L" shape and the bar is tucked in the corner of the "L". Boat is stored in one Leg and he's got his jeep and baja bug in the other leg of the "L". You can kinda see the baja in the background here. Some people build bunkers for when the world ends, he built himself a bar...
