High country shoot

Postby eddie c » Mon Jun 17, 2019 7:00 pm

I don't know if any of you follow trad shoots on other sites. Right now I'm in Strasbourg, CO, about 40 miles east of Denver, heading to about 3 hours west of Denver to attend the CTAS High Country .shoot.
I will take pictures.

We got west of Denver today. Driving over the mountains and the rain pulling a 30' camper sure is fun. :bash:

The GPS in my smart watch said between 9 and10k.

Crazy trip all the way around. Truck battery fried on Sunday morning. Thankful I was in a campground but getting help was tough. I never thought I would call a Uber driver but that was the only way I could get to the NAPA store.

Dang man. That's almost as bad as the alternator going out on my wife's expedition coming down the mountain a few years ago.

beautiful country, but I hate driving I-70 west of Denver !

neighbors say this is a weird weather year for sure, in CO. I got up this am and it was 39 degrees... I get texts from my friends back home in MS complaining about the heat/humidity, and i'm still wearing sweatshirts :)

Yes, they were shooting in the snow. Woke up to a dusting on Friday morning. I was having trouble with altitude and decided to rest since I shot one course Thursday afternoon. ( They had 6 courses with 10-12 targets on each,). Saturday morning there were people shooting, people trying to get thier campers out and people driving in to shoot. There was 6-8" on the ground.
I wanted to shoot in it but was concerned about getting the camper out and making it home. I saw a picture of a wrecker pulling campers out Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday.

Thanks. We're waking up in the panhandle of Texas now. With the AC running.lol
This 3D set up was a change. Instead of walking down a trail to a shoot stake, shooting then walk back to the trail, we headed to the next target from the target we just shot. Cross country style. They marked the path to take with orange tape. Over logs, under tree branches, etc.

Sounds like a good shoot, look out for those Texas rattlers!

But in reality, they don’t bite any harder than ours here do.... lol

Enjoy your trip.
