Got home at midnight from my trip to Defensive Edge's long range shooting class. More on that elsewhere, later.
Yesterday morning I had planned to hunt coyotes again. Set the alarm clock time and wake up time. Planned on 3.5 hours of sleep. Alarm didn't go off. I didn't turn on the alarm after setting it. Darn.
So I called up the 80 year old rancher I am "dating".
Dating means I am trying to establish a relationsip with him so he'll offer me deer hunting access. I met him on the road next to his ranch when I was about to go out coyote hunting on some adjacent state land. He said if I kill a coyote he'd invite me to his house for supper.
Well, I called him and told him about the kill (above) and he, his wife and grandson met me in town for breakfast at his expense. And then I drove the 900 remaining miles home.
We'll see how the dating goes.
2,700 mile trip is done. I'll hit 50,000 miles on my vehicle this week. Bought it last June, 13 months ago.
