dang... I'm a genius...

Mr. President, we formally offer to conduct a private Appleseed Project event for you and your family and close friends at any facility in the country that will satisfy the Secret Service, conducted by instructors who know and love our history, our heritage, and our sport, and our country.

Well? Genius, right?  Never happen, of course, but genius  :cool2:

I love that orange hat with the logo.  Do red hats exist with that logo?  If so how do I get one?

Great job folks!

When one has obtained those essentials necessary for well-being — food, shelter, warmth, and clothing, there is an alternative to struggling through steel jungles for the luxuries. That’s to adventure on life itself, one’s vacation from humble toil having commenced.” -Townsend Whelen

Yes, red hats do exist, and I was able to snag one. There was only one green hat like those there, and ITB didn't part with it :). They should be coming in shoot boxes soon from what I gather.

Sorry no pics here , however I will tell you.....
First A Great Time was had by All, and Secondly I am so glad I am back home... Wide open spaces and scenic mountain views.

This event was very successful and I am sure ITB will post stats when he recovers somewhat...

I was too busy 'carnival barking' to take many pictures but I was amused that the convention was in the shadow of the CNN tower. I'm a fan of the History show Counting Cars so it was cool to see the 2nd Amendment car they did in person. The center was really big. Must have been something to watch the construction. I think we had to go down 4 escalators to get to the exhibit hall.

For those that like YouTube celebrities I got to shake Instructor Zero's hand and bumped into Hickock45. Saw Jerry twice but I wasn't around when he hit the booth.

I couldn't believe the humidity; in APRIL! Ugh - this Northerner (I don't think I qualify as a Yankee since I'm too far West) won't be moving there without a court order.

Nice to be home, armed and mobile. Thanks for the memories.
