    Default Training Look NO Snow!

    We are to the south of the Waste Management's largest dump in Ontario and behind the cemetery in Watford!!!
    It was a beautiful day.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Our snow was gone for ONE day here in NE Pa.. Then we got another couple of inches. Oh well, got to train on bare ground for a day anyhow. A few inches is manageable though so as long as we don't get alot more we'll be out there every day. Happy training!!

    Mary Lynn,

    Thanks for reminding me Harrumph!

    Currently snowing with a red warning for road users; the forecast is for high winds and around 6" on the uplands (ie us) overnight leading to deep drifting.

    Theoretically we are picking up tomorrow and Saturday, but we'll see what happens; the shoot HQ is within walking distance if push comes to shove so the only thing that will stop me is if the Guns don't turn up or the 'keeper calls things off. I'll take a camera out if we're still on and post a few pics.

    Sounds like an early move to the pub!!

    Eug
    Thank you, very kind, Mine's a pint.
