Derek’s “stalker” photos from Las Vegas.
Derek visits Triple Aught Design Headquarters in San Francisco, CA for the Dogpatch Third St. Sale. He didn’t buy anything on sale, but he’s OK with that.
Visited Arizona first. Had a blast. Met several nice folk, and hope to introduce the blog through an outdoor journal in the near future. After driving through Hoover Dam at least four times, I finally stopped by to check it out. Wanted the full tour (includes the space inside the dam), but had to settle […]
*Originally published on October 12, 2010.* Checked out Curtain Falls in Oroville, CA. Probably one of the more difficult short hikes I’ve been on. I thought Bear Creek and Traverse Falls were difficult. The killer was the swimming, bouldering throughout the day and a 1600 ft. climb at the end. I learned several lessons through […]
Team Blaster Member – Tony G. Jacob D. finished 8th. I was only able to attend day one of the 2011 TBRC, but the following are my photos of the match. CS Tactical has the final results and more photos should be made available by others who were there. TBRC is a bolt action rifle […]
That fellow camper who found the remains of a plane wreckage is on the news.
Visited a senior couple this afternoon. House smelled of urine and mold. You can hear flies buzz across the room. Refrigerator contents were of rotten take-out meals and other moldy foods. I also observed an assortment of pickled food throughout the house. I noted at least five cats on the property. Reportedly, there are more […]
I made a boo boo scheduling my client visits this afternoon. To burn time, I visited Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park. I drive by it often, but never actually checked it out. In 1848, James W. Marshall discovered gold on the South Fork of the American River, California.
After a botched trip to Chico, CA for work, I went to Eureka, CA. I traveled through 299; came back home on the 101, then through 20. Wonderful drive! I was fortunate that that weather was cooperative and the ride was relatively pain free! While in Eureka, I visited the Blue Ox Millworks. Blue Ox […]
A very unique crack in my windshield. Does it resemble anything you folks are familiar with?

Last year, I was expecting a new 22/45 with replaceable grips. Though I was disappointed then, I am quite satisfied this year with the release of Ruger‘s RP models. Though they are replaceable, I doubt they can be swapped without minor modification. Still cool, nonetheless.
Expect to pay no more than $880 [MSRP] for the KSG shotgun. Chambered for 12 ga. 2 3/4″ car shells and a barrel length of 18.5″, this shotgun can carry up to 14+1 distributed between two magazine tubes that can be switch with the thumb toward the rear of the firearm. It only weights about […]
