no tickets required for 10 years and under
TWO registered spots left....with my support crew that puts us around 90 people.
Don'T forget to bring your .22lr rifles and pistols. Going to set up a couple of these just for y'all. You can bet your happy there's going to be some high powered rifle steel as well along with some pteraplegia (the art of shooting flying).
You boys better be playing "Marching Through Georgia" on that steel just like you was Bull shooting those church bells.
Nice work @Jeffro ! Let's see, 2000 rounds of 22lr, when I step up 2000 plings, sounds about right for me......oh what, this isn't the liars bench....
You will be thinking I'm missing, but I will just shooting through those little holes in the middle.
Not with your eyes.
Doc said I needed glasses, anybody ever heard of quadrafocals?
Made by Trijicon
Didn't Tom Knapp shoot 5000 1 1/2" wooden cubes tossed in the air, without a miss. He did this with a Remy Nylon 66. Don't worry 2000 Plinks is so small potatoes it won't even make the liars bench.
Those are marker discs for a chisel plow, I figured they would work for .22lr and pistol. If you shoot through the hole that'll win you a lollypop but I got to warn you, Mullet likes lollypops he could have them all won and ate up by the time you get dialed in.
I don't doubt that at all, prolly could do it with the wrist rocket too.
I haven't been on the forum much over the last year or two. Work's got me too busy. But this is pretty much the only thing i come to check on, and boy am i glad i did! I'll be signing up for sure!
registation is closed at this time...if you would still like to go ill be starting a "wait list" of sorts in case anyone cancels and wants to give up their spot. I will be ordering shirts in the next week or so...we are still finalizing the design on the back. Ill be getting a couple extras in different sizes otherwise only getting what was ordered through registration. if you did NOT order a shirt but want one shoot me an email and i can make sure to add you to the list. firstname.lastname@example.org
Put the missus and I on the wait list, we weren't sure whether we could come this year due to my current employ.
Question...............do we all get together and cook around a fire or is it each man for himself?
This is a simple question even a baby could answer.
Also I would like to go out early John and stake out my camp site and set up some bob wire, thanks!
Just one more thing, on my T-shirt please put a Hello Kitty logo on mine , thanks again.
Well we mostly cook for ourselves but I usually cook too much and I have never just not fed someone, still it's catch as catch can at the dinner table. This bunch will wait on each other like one hog waits on another. How's that baby answer?
That dog ill hunt
Brothers, judging by the night air of late and the regularity of the northers as of late I would advise to prepare for cold weather. I believe I'll bring my long handles and a heavy coat. To quote Captain Call "It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it."
One year when he hosted in January it got down to 18 with sleet. But I bet you been in colder in your neck of the woods.
That's a bit cold. Yeah, I'm used to zero or below but 18 is decent.
The cold down here is somewhat different due to the everpresent humidity. I remember when I was a Scout going to Philmont it would be freezing and we wore shorts and a wool jacket. Had we been here and not in the high dry mountains we would be wearing longjohns and coats. Being dry and cold is way more tolerable than being wet and cold.
So in other words, this warm weather camper had best invest in a colder rated sleeping bag.
(I am moving to Ohio in a few months....so that is going to happen)
Base layers starting with a smooth whiskey or top shelf tequila and a waterproof outer layer. And cover your head, especially at night, lol. Of course December 2 years ago was gorgeous. High 70's daytime and sunny with just the right amount of breeze with nighttime temps in the mid to upper 40's iirc.
Will keep that in mind. My current bag was bought on a budget and needs upgraded anyways, per my added sentence to my last post.
Smilin' Joe ain't knee walking in the bar ditch drunk, he's just happy to be warm. Sounds like he should be a character out of a short story by Robert Service.
Ha! You've got a way with words my friend. Made me think if one were knee walkin in a bar ditch he'd gave to be drunk or looking for a dropped contact lense, lol!
I'll be bringing some of Colorado's finest with me.
Cover my head? Is that so the bats don't get tangled in my hair?
What would you tell the police officer. "Damn glass eye keeps falling out" or "Sum b@$#h, I had to hock a luggey and I spit out my front bridge with it. No matter what you said you would have a place to sleep for the night and fried baloney, eggs and gravy for breakfast the next morning.
It ain't the bats, it's the Ohno birds you got to look out for.
A couple spots opened up...I updated the website list. Ignore where it says registration is full. If the site allows you to compete annorsee then you’re good to go.
Thank you Sir
The first one, then the second one, then we draw straws and select a human sacrifice.
Notepads and pencils(With extra erasers) will be supplied for all campers to be used in collecting Jeffro's wisdom. There will be scheduled philosophy at the morning, noon and especially night hours. Get your education with that man!
Jeffro was credited with teaching Wyatt Earp how to walk, who, in turn, taught film legend John Wayne. He was also a shooting instructor to Audie Murphy, but only let him shoot left handed, in fears that, quote "He might tear 'em up too bad.".
Well, look what the cat dragged in!
The cat rolled over and died of stomach ache!
Are you going to be there or are you in the Witness Protection Program and living at an undisclosed location under an assumed identity?
I'll be proudly at your fire, waiting for the lid to come off the dutch pot!
I could never assume an identity, anyway! Nobody else would be willing to take up the one I have, now!
@badger claw and Hill Country Texans:
It's getting close so now it's time to figure my gear out. I'm flying in so it's all gotta fit into one suitcase. So I have some n00b comments and questions.
I'd love to get in on target shooting at least, but have never transported a firearm. I have mostly older, vintage stuff and checking stuff like that makes me nervous. If anything I'd just bring a plinker .22 maybe a Steven's Favorite. I'd expect I could buy .22 ammo in or near Austin.
Question for @Adahy -- I don't have anything suited to carving stuff but would love to give it a go. Should I pick up anything for that? Maybe a Mora carver and spoon knife?
@Shnick how spicy is that chili? Should this Norske plan on making up a pot of plain ole beans?
If it gets as cold as some suggest it might, I won't have room in one suitcase for enough wool and canvas to stay warm. Because, you know, that would cut into the TSA 5 liter limit on booze in checked bags. (kidding mostly -- but if I can get some of the newly released, aged Woodinville whiskey I might bring a bottle for sharing around the fire).
I'd like to figure out if I can cut tarp poles or carve me some tent stakes. If I can whip a piece of canvas for a chair then maybe that too. Are we able to forage wood for stuff like that, or should I make different arrangements? Just need to know if I should buy one of those aluminum tarp poles and/or some cheap chairs.
I would assume a community fire with individual cold camps. If that's right, should I plan on maybe a cookstove but no open fire? Twig stove set up on a rock or brick? Asking mainly because it's best for all involved if I can fix up some caffeine in the mornings before having to talk to people. At the moment I mostly use small wood or alcohol stoves.
If anyone's planning communal cooking let me know. I can pick up some stuff (by stuff I mean bacon but I am open to suggestions) in Austin on Thursday.
How open is the country out there? Lots of trees? Is it windy? Good, flat campsite locations?
How spread out are the campsites? I bet some of you snore like full throttle chainsaws. Not me, of course.
Yes, those are some of my questions as well, @badger claw
1. Are we allowed small individual camp fires as well?
2. If “eh, probably not” on No 1, how about in a mini Weber grill or a slightly raised brazier to contain the fire/coals?
3. I think I remember you saying hammock spots are limited, but will a good tarp camp be feasible? Or is it like absolutely barren plains?

Guys, we will be on a hill above the San Saba river, in the middle of a working Pecan farm.
Hammock space is limited, the cutting of trees is discouraged.
There will be a central fire for communal cooking of major meals.
You will be on your own pretty much for Breakfast and lunch.
Schick usually cook Waffles Saturday morning, for the group until they run out.
As far as individual fire, depends on the weather, if it is mild enough, then they may be a couple of the bigger camp areas with a fire.
If it is in the extreme range as it has been a couple of times in the past, then small fires for warmth are usually acceptable.
But as tends to happen, everybody flocks to either the main fire or one of the bigger camps.
Woods - Grill would be fine. Not a barren spot at all, open fields between large Pecan trees. Most of the hang spots are along the river, and are prime real estate. Tarps and tents plenty of room.
aaronu - Should be plenty of knives in attendance to borrow or purchase for carving. But if you feel the need bring your own.
as far as the chili, it is excellent, but not for the weak of heart. Shnickerdoodle likes jalapeno. Should be plenty of corn bread and other fixin's to off set it though. Bring a bowl, both for the chili and Shnick's waffles(is a tradition)
There is a grocery/hardware store 5 minutes away, so any supplies that you forget or need are within easy reach.
Would it be helpful if I brought a couple of fire basins?
