    Hope you can get away - even chilling out by lake is good medicine - add some shooting and it gets even better.

    Weather will be a factor here - if fine then my buddy with ultralight airfield will be one place I'll be at at some stage - he has a fly-in over the four days total - Fri thru Mon - and hope to go up, as well as take some RC planes to fly too.

    Also if fine - bound to be some biking (I hope).

    Might meet up with a buddy to go after some groundhogs - not sure when. That'll be all the shooting I think as this coming w/e is an IDPA, followed by watching my son shoot in the shottie club's Tombstone (follwed by good food!).

    If I get my boat back to the dealer for a tuneup, I may be on the lake. It's already running above a 100 degrees and the lakes are calling my name....

    I'm with Bumper but I still have to replace the outdrive water pump before I can go. In California we went from winter to summer it has been 98 degrees for the last two days here.

    I hear you Rugerman. Eastern WA went from mid 60's to low 90's overnight. I don't like the heat in the summer let alone mid May.

    Not going anywhere. If it's under 90, yardwork time. Over 90, spend time in the basement checkering a rifle stock and drinking suntea.

    I will be going up to Republic, Washington to fish on Lake Curlew for trophy king size rainbow trout and large mouth bass in our new 28 foot smoker craft that goes 60 mph, or so the 250hp motor suggests. Should be fun!
    And yes washington went crazy in weather, 63 degrees one day, the next 97!

    My daughter turns 16 on the 26th. One of her birthday present is me taking her to her first concert on the 28th. A group called Flogging Molly is in town and she wanted to go see them. I've told her she needs to invite a friend but no one else in the school she goes too seems to like that group. Being a Navy brat gives you different perspectives than the other kids at a rural Ohio town I guess. lol

    I hope everyone has a great weekend!

    Hey Tony- At 25 I'd doubt it if you'd like me to come, but I like Flogging Molly.

    Other then that I'm planning to head up to Prescott with a buddy and go camping with a buddy.
