Here is a "link" for you guys that have no idea what this twice a year event is.

Well i have finally "experienced" what the sounds of combat may sound like, after a 10 yr wait.

Heck, they even had "paid" Vietnam HUEY Helicopter rides over the range at $100 bucks.

Some pictures for all of you to enjoy.

PS, you DEFINITELY need hearing protection !!! :lol:

(((It was worth the wait))).

I was there, on Friday only though.

How was Saturday's weather?

Instead of staying over, I hit the road to "get ahead of the coming bad weather, for an easier drive home"......FAILED MISERABLY AT THAT!
