Hey Sig
Me and the Boys in my neck of the woods use 12 gauge regardless ! Appalachian Americans remember! Been following your thread for a while now and it has me yearning for the Western passages ! Keep this thread alive!
Thanks....In all honesty, a little .22 would have been less messy. I really don't hunt much (too much work), but like to shoot-- Chicken's cheap anyway

Had to run a few errands today, not much that was scenic. Weather wasn't too cold, about mid 40's.....

I did stop here for a few minutes

The Hill AFB Museum

the B1-B Lancer, really beautiful lines

"Haggarty's Hag", was one of the last B-29's in service

One of my favorites, this little P-51 is in flying condition (tucked under the B-17's wing)

[IMG][/IMG]

Lots of other planes.....let me know if you didn't/wanna see a favorite

Hard to argue with that. Lovely shape, size, and sound (I've only heard the "sound" a couple times-- goose bump kind of engine note)

This one is worth the trip. Lots of great stories from all the old vet/vol guys hanging around this place too.

A couple more from Wednesday:

Skyraider- I knew a fine vet who flew these in Vietnam. He didn't say much about it, but he was still in love with this plane. Said they were the toughest birds in the sky.

[IMG][/IMG]
Very cool F-86. The open side panel shows John M Browning's contributions

[IMG][/IMG]
Front

[IMG][/IMG]
Rear. This rare one still smells like jet fuel

[IMG][/IMG]
A wild weasel version of the thud

A (captured) Mig 21

The Devil's Slide used to spook me as a kid. Mostly the name I guess. My old man would call out from the front of the car "look kids... the Devil's Slide"! I could never see much as we passed. I only saw big rocks, and never did I see a little red man with a pokey tail and pitchfork.



Cool picture huh! Probably from around the time that bridge was built.

For tonight, I'm greatful for where I reside, other than the occasional brutal cold.

Evening all-
A few shots of "Utah's Biggest Hole" -Bingham Copper Mine. One of the few man made/created objects visible from space I'm told. In any case, it's huge.

[IMG][/IMG]
Giant Tonka trucks running around (I think post-blast, "loosen and load" mining)

[IMG][/IMG]
Zoomed in on the distant action stuff

[IMG][/IMG]
THe eastern side, each of the "steps" are 75-100 ft as I recall.

Holy Crap...

Those dump trucks are huge and look how that scoop shovel/crane dwarfs that sucker. That's some big assed equipment.
Thanks for your RR Signal and I hope you and everyone else out there had a great Thanksgiving, pass the pie,
