No-Show This Weekend

After my 8pm meeting on Friday, I'd planned on packing my gear and AR-10, and going to The Cabin for the weekend, since I had nothing to do around the condo. The forecast was for clear, very cold temps and brisk winds, but no precipitation. I could weather that easily. In the mountains, it's a whole different story, however. It's always different in the mountains. Since Adam's Junction isn't on any map, it'd be impossible to get any forecast for that "virtual town".

I was packed-up Thursday night, to leave for Adam's Junction after my meeting on Friday evening, cleaned my AR-10 .308cal (7.62 x 51mm NATO), with the Leupold Gold Dot Mark 4 CQ/T Scope on my condo's dining room table (on some newspaper), loaded 15 extra 20-round magazines and took a "battle pack" (200 rounds of 7.62 x 51mm .308 cal) ammo along, just for good measure. I also cleaned my Kimber 1911 "Eclipse Target II" .45cal ACP, and loaded 8 x 8-round extra magazines, plus took a US Army ammo can of 50 boxes of 20 rounds each. I was ready to go right then. Damned meeting would hold things up until around 9:30-10:00pm, or so.

I decided to stay home for the weekend.
