November 14 - 16, 2008

Drill weekend - nasty Army food and rainy shooting ranges. Fun!

Nothing quite like shooting in the rain. I don't get to the range often enough.

So you were pulling for Lesnar I see. BTW I don't think I would have taken the bet if it was 100 Burpees. No in fact I am pretty sure I wasn't that committed. Since you were at drill I doubt you got to see any of the fights. The undercard was absolutely fantastic. There were so many good fights I don't which one was my favorite.

Everybody back to their normal schedule after the Disney trip? It usually takes our family a week or two to get back to normal.

I'm still in shock about the fight.

And I'm doing a Disney Cruise in February - a weeks worth of cheat meals should do me wonders.

Allen did you train while in Disney?

All the best,
Arden

The range was F'ed up but eh what can you do. I was steaming on Saturday in regards to the OIC of the range and they crap ass way it was being run. Woosaa....

I caught some clips when I got home on Sunday but it's hard to find full fights now online.

I got back on schedule pretty easily, the kids took a bit more doing. Laurie is still catching up on sleep I think.

Hunter had actually requested a Disney cruise to begin with after watching something on the Travel channel about them. The Make-A-Wish volunteers however were able to get him psyched about the trip to Disney World though.

I did a quick flexibility routine on Saturday morning + a short metcon, and then the WL'ing session I did at Leo's place on Wednesday night. Other than that I'd stretch here and there, nothing crazy. A lot of walking at the parks of course.

I'm still kind shocked about the weight loss. 194 the Thursday before I left, 188 the Thursday after I get back. Very weird. My wife thinks it had to do with all the walking....but it's not THAT much walking.

Dude,
I gotta tell you, but for me, the Disney Cruise is like 1000x better than Disneyworld. The kids go into their own clubs where they don't want to leave, so you and wife are left alone to do your thing. The clubs give you pagers and when the kid wants you, the clubs page you. We've gone twice and both times the kids wanted nothing to do with us except to take them to the shows at night. Otherwise they ran like banshees and played with like minded kids in their clubs.

First trip, I gained 11 pounds in 4 days - the food was killer. The gym was okay. Second trip, I worked out every day as the gym was revamped and actually had dumbells up to 70 pounds and a ton of machines. It was like they doubled the size of the workout area in less than a year. Wishfully thinking, I've got my fingers crossed for some free weights (heaven if there's bumpers and a platform) this trip - however, free weights on a boat is sorta problematic.

Oh, the one trip to Disneyworld (2004) resulted in a wonderful saying for my wife and I. I was instructed to say the following any time she inquired about the possibilty of pregnancy - "Disneyworld 2004."

All the best,
Arden

Were you guys on the long arm range or pistol? Was it just practice or were you having to qualify? I took Jr shooting a couple of weeks ago and the highlight of the day was him shooting a ruger mini 14 .223. He of course loved it. My mom is taking all of the grand kids to a NRA range instructor next month for a mornings worth of training.

Here is a link to Dustin Hazeletts fight this was a very good one.

M16's and M9's qualification, it's pretty irritating that we don't get time on the range just to practice. The only times we go are for qualification.
