"Do not try this at home, only at winterseeds" - Earl, you have no idea how affective it was in warming up my hands. But I wouldn't do it when I have feeling in them. ::)


JA, SS, there were so many times when I would turn around and think, "That was where Johnathan was when he was reading the back of SS's t-shirt", or "right over there we did ________"..... So many good memories. Remember the brass in the hoody? **) @)

What an awesome shoot!!!

A big thank you goes out to 06en for setting up the shoot, and for all the leg work he did to get everything ready. Well done! O0 And yes, the hot chocolate was good. ;)

Earl, it was GREAT to see you again after half a year. Hope to see you again in August, right? @) :) I mean, you gave me a certain patch and an orange hat earlier this year... ::) ::) Thanks for letting me shoot your Garand. SO FUN! ^:)^ ^:)^ ^:)^

Troy, thanks for taking up the (my) orange hat. ;D It'll be great to work the line with you.

Theophilus and Joni, thanks for making the drive over to help us out. O0

Congrats to all the Riflemen (repeat and new). Excellent job. :---

To all the shooters: Thanks for coming out in the cold and wind to learn rifle marksmanship and American heritage. It was a pleasure to work with you all. Come on back to another shoot. ;)

To all the instructors: I couldn't ask for a better crew to work with. You all ROCK! :bow: :cool2: ..:..

While it looks like the Department of Photography is pretty much covered, I've got a couple to add. I'll get 'em posted as soon as I can.

Although I missed the '08 Appleseed here at home, it seems that no matter where or what AS I am at, it feels like home.

I would like to thank all of the Instructors, ReformedRedneck, TruTenacity, Western Rose, Evenstar, Still Learnin, Theophilus, Joni and now Troy for giving so much to help make this shoot one I will never forget.

For all the shooters who have it in them to drink from the fire hose in the elements the weekend had to provide, you are yourselves an inspiration.

Congratulations again to all the new and repeat-Riflemen and Riflewomen. Hope to see you all again soon.

A very special mention of thanks goes out goes out to Earl for coming as a shooter. Even though you were not here to "work", your advise and words of wisdom are highly valued.

Wheeler and Wade. Even though you both were unable to be here, your work and efforts were in fact here. If it were not for you, this weekend's Moxee AS would not have happened. So you both were, truely here.

Thanks a 1,000,000.

Nice words, and how many are moving pictures worth?

Winterseed indeed! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjqG3jUNL1I

RFAQT Briefing and prep http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Pizwm0ddAw

Yes, snowing on Troy, he will improve  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQPGsjc4gqE

Troy does better http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgQnJrpLeGU

Thank you shooters and crew, a wonderful mildly Winter weekend whatever --seed it was, it was a great one. :bow:
... to catch the fire in another American for sharing the skills and our heritage to our posterity. Maybe my perfect shots will be made by those I met along the trials and trails of Appleseed. I know that America is a nation of Riflemen.

Perfect all the way up to the smile at the end. Thanks for sharing. In fact I spoke to some tough men today about the shoot and they said it was too cold to show up. So I tell them that there was a 6 year old girl out there that was tougher than them.  @)

 I told her that and she got a really good laugh out of it!  Thanks!   :)
