Shepard comes for a visit

Postby Grimstod » Sat Apr 13, 2013 3:50 pm

Shepard (Jerry) came up to my place for a visit today and we had a blast! Everyone els who could not make it missed out :shh:

It was raining a little but it soon stopped. Biggest headache was the cold. We felt like we were on the eastern front. Too bad we don't have that hardy russian spirit.

We ran out of time too. Only were able to shoot two of Jerry's guns and one of mine.

Here are the pictures and thanks again to Jerry for visiting with His wife. I am so glad they got to come up.

Like any good parent Jerry lets this kinds ride in the back seat. :D

I forgot to give this back to you Shep. I can bring it down on my next visit (I hope next week)
It works great though the image will be upside down.

:D We went north -- not to Alaska but it sure felt that way. 2 days I checked the weather and it was supposed to 53 degrees and mild clouds and sun mix. :idea: Next time I'm taking my insulated coveralls. That being said -- We had a wonderful time. Ben's parents are really cool, his mother even shoots. All the noise and his parents just sat inside and watched tv while we shot.
:angel: I wish I could smile better -- I look grumpy in the pictures but I'm having a blast. We started late cause we ate and talked. Living on Cayuga the view is fantastic. You can see for miles. Here are a few pictures of my day at Ben's house. :clap: All that I can say is -- When are we doing this again!!!! :lol:

I want to come out to your yard sales, they're way better than here... That sign in the photo made me laugh.

Great photos and it looks like you guys had a great time. Congrats on the build Shep.

See guys -- this is what I was talking about. Most every body has a laptop, the camera was 70.00 dollars from Orion telescope and a good used telescope from a yard sale -- your on your own for that part. At least it isn't 400-500 dollars like some target monitors. Ben took my idea and debugged it. Ben says the image is upside down -- well that isn't a problem. In the camera setup you most likely are able to invert the image. This idea is cheap.
