Home from Boomershoot '09

Wow, what a trip that was. Just over 3900 miles round-trip; 3 days up, 3 days back.

Montana spring snow on the way there; Texas spring severe thunderstorms on the way home.

And more than worth every mile!

I'm just going to post a little bit tonight; still pretty tired from the road. More will follow over the next few days.



"Home Sweet Home" from Friday night until Monday morning - with Rivrdog, my camping and shooting buddy, who drove over from Oregon.

I saw a lot of these weird fence-type things in Wyoming - does anybody know what these are for?


And this pic was from last night - one of my favorite sights in the world when I've been traveling:



That sign usually means I've got less than 8 hours of driving before I'm home - yeah, Texas IS that big.

More stuff about Boomershoot itself, and the lots of great people I met there, to follow over the next few days. Lots more pictures, too.

they're for trapping snow and tumbleweed; it causes the wind to slow down, so the snow dumps at the fence line.

Thanks, Ry. That question was really puzzling me. Guess I had too much time on the road looking at them :)

They used to be made of wood in the old days...

If you're referring to the fence things, they still appear to be wooden.

I've seen them wooden and metal, with metal becoming more common; depending on what's cheapest, I suppose.
