A happy man

Jonestown AOK Campground
Jonestown,  PA

Last week there was a gun show in Harrisburg.   Son-in-law Steve asked Leonard to go with him.  UGH.   I knew what that meant.  

Leonard has been talking about wanting a 357 Henry Rifle.     Understand, he has 9 other guns.   But THIS ONE IS SPECIAL he says.  THIS ONE WAS AT A GOOD PRICE, he says.  I'VE ALWAYS WANTED A HENRY, he says.  You don't need another gun, I say.   Who won in this scenario you ask?

Steve has joined a shooting range.  Hopefully during the next few days Len will go with him and test out his new rifle.   The only time he gets to target shoot is when we are in Louisiana visiting family.  And then it's far from every time.

On Monday he said let's take a ride.   By take a ride he meant drive 26 miles up to Hamburg, PA  to

This is our favorite Cabela's.  It is much larger than most we've been in.  Before we started traveling this was the only one we knew.   When we got to Mitchell, SD there was one down the road from the campground.   I would guess it's about 1/3 the size of this Cabela's.   As are most others we have been in throughout the country.    It has a large lot for RV's with a dump station.  I need to remember this about Cabela's during our travels.

I walked around for a short time.  But not liking to shop, I begged off and returned to the truck to sit and wait.  And wonder if that was really a good idea.    Took about a half hour for Leonard to return.

Ah, just ammo.   I can live with that.   He is a happy man.

Until next time.......


  1. We used to go to that Cabela's when we lived there, and visited RV's at Boat and RV world next door :) I keep telling George he needs another trailer for all the stuff he likes to keep in the RV, especially what Len likes :( Looks like we'll just miss you in Houston again. We'll be in Livingston until the 13th or so, then move north to OK to begin gate guarding.

  2. Like some folks cannot have to many shoes, others feel the same way about firearms:) I have some I have not fired in decades but would never sell:)
