My big boss at work has been busy with his pet rocketry project.  His team went shooting for the Guiness book of world records yesterday.  Launching the World's Largest Scale Rocket.  His 'to scale' Mercury is 64 feet tall....

Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Mornin gents.

Scrummy I'd like to help ya out, but I'm already committed for the rest of the week. Don't worry though, Erlanger is next to the northern Ky. airport. Delta has a hub there that they fly international flights out of.

The weather is clear and warming up. The river is dropping fast too, but the mud is still at the range. We're having to wait till the last minute to set up our match; hoping we can set up one stage on what was an island, if the mud isn't too deep.

Gotta go.

Well if you're already committed BF, I guess I'll just have to give you a pass. Package is currently clearing customs.

Hope everyone is doing well. I'm still trying a shake a cold. Be a pain for hunting this weekend.

Welcome back G!  Between Comcast/xfinity rolling out their Mesh wifi network which obsoleted my Cable Modem and several others and the OT crashing it's been withdrawal city for me and many others....

I've updated my cable modem to one that's now on their compatibility list but my router locks out after 2-3 hours of use.  I've got a newer router on the way too.  They want to use our service to mesh Xfinity Hotspot into a continuous grid of coverage.  If you load their app and search for Hotspots you find every business customer listed with names and addresses.

That's disturbing cause several of the businesses in my area are run out of the owners homes....  Their is also the question of them using peoples electricity and privately owned modems and routers for free....

Privacy means nothing to these big companies.  It is mind boggling to me how they get away with all this crap. 
Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.

I believe there is at least one class action lawsuit against Comcast Already of this issue.

Morning from London folks! Quieter looking day here.

Got a bit of a boys weekend planned:

Wifey is off to the US and Canada on business from Saturday lunch time (San Antonio, Michigan (Some don't give the a damn for the whole state I understand) and finishing in Toronto.

So, drop wifey at Heathrow tomorrow. Head on to range and see a buddy of mine and shoot some stuff. He's got an Aimpoint I'm interested in trying.

Crash at his place then off for a day of trying to find foxes, fallow and roe deer on Sunday

Scrummy
