Hiram I am armed and ready for our next camping/off roading trip are you? Do you have anything in mind. I would like to do one before it gets to cold.

Maybe at Wheelbarrow Pitch on October 21-22?

I don't think these sites are reservable, but are more on a first-come, first-serve basis. I could be wrong though.

OK, so maybe my advice for OB wasn't so good . . . but Little Omaha is pretty sweet though!

Arron told me that he called someone last time for reservations.

Big Omaha, and a few other sites are reservable, but wheelbarrow pitch is not one of the... (geeze rick, dontya remember having this conversation already??? remember I brought it up because it was posted on the inside of the outhouse along with "discharging firearms at your lunch" ) I think a scout party should go ahead early on friday and make sure that a tent is in place and the road blocked to ensure we've got the site....

Maybe we can talk Dave and Gail to go in on Friday and put up some junk tents or something to hold it for us. Or they could go in Friday and set up camp and stay the night and wait for us to show up Saturday.

. . . and set up a few machine gun nests, a mine field and string up some barbed wire.

I suspect getting a spot here in early to mid-October shouldn't be an issue anyways since most of the summer campers will have packed it up long ago. Again, only my opinion.

"Reservable" . . . for all the good that did you guys, huh?

I was going to respond to this one, but I think Aaron explained it pretty well . . . just certain spots such as Omaha Beach are supposed to be "reservable" for groups.

Well I have been wrong before . . . but I tell ya I still think those spots would be open . . . or just do what I sometimes do . . . pick a road off the Golden Road, drive up in as far as you want/can and then pitch a tent off the beaten path.

If you are determined to use a campsite that is full you could always act like the state Natural Resources Defense Council and tell them that the area has been quarenteened because of contamination of some sort. Not that I would know if that worked;) , but it could:D

Don't let Jeff Cooper hear you say that! 1911 all the way--that tiny .35 is for sissys! (Man, I miss my old Series '70 Gold Cup!).

well you know what they say about the old dogs with attitudes....:D
who said anything about a .35? Rick and I just bought a couple of .40's :D :D :D (and i've got a hi-point 9mm comp, and carbine) admit it... they're good stuff! :)

Well, it IS a John Browing design, so it's not all bad ;-)

A .40 still isn't a .45, but I will admit to carrying my snubby .38 much more often than my .45 back in the day.

Well... if I had to choose... I'd rather have a BAR... :D

Nothing wrong with a snub, that's just about all i carry (because it's too hot to wear the clothing to conceal anything else!)

BAR is fun--I had, IIRC an H&R manufactured one. They only had a 20 rd. mag, though, and was pretty heavy w/carry handle and bipod. Expensive to feed, too--ought six was a lot tougher to get good deals on than 7.62 Nato. One of our associates made a BAR-K (Bark--get it?) by cutting a BAR down to about a 10" barrel--it did BARK, too--and the muzzle blast was quite a site. Machine guns are a more expensive hobby than Jeeps!

Yeah, I think I'm going to combine the two hobbies and mount machine guns on my Jeep :D

Too bad it's illegal to shoot from a vehicle in Maine--vehicle mounts are cool!

well then I'll put a seat on top so I won't be in the vehicle, technically I'll be shooting from the seat. ;)

Hiram, if you boss is making a side trip you may want to tell him that me and you bought the last two they had so they maybe not have any. He may want to call ahead of time.
