    Good article. I really liked the pictures of your niece and nephew. My grandson is 2 now. Maybe I need to start him now?

    Good Read.
    Got the same situation with a 2 yr. old grandson but his mom (My daughter) thinks I'm as nuts as a fruit cake. I'll keep working on it. All I can say is if I'd of known how much fun grandkids were I'd have by passed the first stage.

    have any of you ever used a spotting scope to call wind speed? how did it work for you?

    It works quiote well. Depends on the area your are in and the temps.
    You can read the mirage if the temps are right. You can read the wind by wacthing through the spotting scope and seeing the grass,leaves and trees moving, what direction and how hard the wind is blowing by how much they are moving.
    There is a lot of info out there about this subject.
    Shawn Carlock teachs this in his shooting courses as well as on his DVD's.
