    The kiddos want let us sleep the 2 older ones are keeping the new born up so each time one child almost makes it asleep the other 2 wake em up. A cycle that has me up late tonight . A few more hours and I will be ready to leave for work (10 Hr shift) . They are still worth it all :). Not really hunt talk but who knows maybe another LRH member is up doing the same thinglightbulb

    I feel ya man. Sometimes I wonder if my kids ever slow down. It's like their feet are running when they hit the floor in the morning.

    Been there, done that, long before LRH.com existed. :)

    The ol' body seems to be having a tough time adjusting to it's new configuration. I sleep an hour and waken thinking I've slept all night.:rolleyes: Did that last night. . . again.

    Seemed to recover well though. Shot a 0.75 moa group on the gong @ 817 yds during strong, but consistent winds. Shooter was spot on.

    Also just got up from a 3 hour nap. :D

    Sounds to me like you need a sleep study and CPAP machine Roy. Best thing I ever did. Lay down, put on the mask and it's lights out for at least 7 hours.

    There are 2 drawbacks, one worse than the other. The first drawback is sex. You have to pre-plan sex because once the mask goes on, sex is out the window, not a big issue at my (our) age.:D

    Second is hunting. I can't tent hunt, well, I can for 2 days then I have to charge the battery pack because it lasts 2 days max, so I try to lodge or travel traler or camper hunt so I can plug in.

    I makle an excellent hunting partner because I don't keep others awake at night snoring, cause I don't snore. I remember going on hunting trips and having to go to bed early because the guy I bunked with sounded like a chainsaw with no muffler. One time in Washington on a hunt, I slept in the bathtub in a motel we rented with the water in the sink running to drown out the racket.

    Now, I hunt with the same guys all the time. They all like me because they get a nights sleep, undisturbed. I still sometimes forget to take cartridges when going out for the day but we all use the same caliber so I just sponge a few.....:)

    I have 3 machines, one corded for the house, a spare and a portable one with a battery pack.
