Venturing to Chamberlain, South Dakota on Nov 21 for some pheasant shooting. It is a bit of a men’s weekend with about 13 guns, 8 of whom I have not met. It certainly won’t be first class but we will take advanced of all Chamberlain has to offer!

Cheers,

BSR

I shall be sending off a set of 30" 12 ga. barrels to Briley this week. I found them on eBay, if you can believe that. Now my Valmet has 30/06 barrels and shotgun barrels. I believe I shall be on the lookout for a set in .243.

The spread pictured looks lovely, but I promise you: any meal tastes much better after a day biking. And the chair pictured also feels so much more comfortable, too.
There was a day when I would have wholeheartedly agreed with you. Sadly, that day is a decade or two in the past. In one's eighth decade, the gym becomes the battleground against time and gravity. A bicycle is simply a pleasant way to go to the store (when it isn't raining too hard . . . because . . . Portland).

I ride the same Specialized Sirrus Pro I rode in college... thirty-plus years ago? Time does fly.

If I ever upgrade, I'll go carbon fiber, but my aluminum frame is pretty light (it was state of the art when I bought it). Still, it's more technical than pretty.

I think Bianchi makes the prettiest bikes, and for aesthetics, it's hard to beat their Campagnolo 10 speed, which I post as gratuitous bike porn:

I got my daughter her first "big girl" bike (she's 7), and it's amazing how far kids' bikes have come since my massively heavy steel-framed childhood Schwinn... hers is made by an Austrian company specializing in kids bikes (Woom, pronounced "boom") and weighs a mere 16 lbs. It also cost north of $500... kids today, I tell ya! Still, it cuts a striking pose at the park:

The Specialized Sirrus sounds to be quite the ride, but alas, I fear I must content myself with my old Schwinn S-10. It's been hauling my seemingly ever growing butt around for close to three decades and it's hung on a rack in the garage more recently! LOL. ;)
