    17 hrs for me.

    Tyler has a very good steel target setup for checking zeros out quite a ways.

    5hrs is not bad at all.

    Len I hope you have a buddy with you to switch drivers. I truly was contemplating a drive, but I fall asleep after 4hrs of driving.

    I am looking forward to acquiring a solid zero. Len, I can't wait to hit some steel. The anticipation is killing me gun)

    I'm coming from Tennessee. That's a little less than 1500 miles and about 24 hours drive time. I left Lynchburg around 6:30 this morning. I'm in Giltner NE now. I'll probably stop and sleep for a few hours and try to be at the Cabelas store in Sidney when it opens tomorrow. I'll get to Cheyenne/Laramie a couple days early to get the lay of the land.

    Need some advice, what size bipod should I bring ?
    Never been to Wyoming. 6-9 bipod should be fine I assume.

    That size will be fine for most shooting, but sometimes the sage can be high enough to be a problem. You might want one a little taller or you can do what most hunters do and shoot over your back pack.

    I will bring a 6-9 plus shooting sticks in case of uneven ground or areas of tall vegetation.

    Camped out at the Motel 8 in Laramie for a couple of days waiting for Friday. Been out looking over the country and have seen quite a few antelope. You have to be careful. I was driving along looking far out onto the prairie for antelope and a 13" lope stepped into the road in front of me. Thought I was going tofill my tag early.
    There's a city range but you have to be a member to shoot. I had to drive 20 miles from town to some State land. It was worth the trip, I killed a rock at 1219 yards. :)

    Don't worry, if there's one thing that Wyoming has plenty of, it's rocks.
    The weather is more like Florida than Wyoming, 81° and sunny. Bring your sun block.
    Found a few prairie dogs today near Rock River.
    See you guys tomorrow.
