Sometimes I am a bit reserved. I tend to over-plan things and pay too much attention to the clock. This weekend, I was more relaxed. I had my parents visiting from NJ. They brought my youngest son with them. He spent four weeks with them. Kind of like a free sleep-away camp .
At first I thought business as usual for the weekend, but I quickly decided that spending time with them was more important than a long ride. So, I did some shorter rides.
Saturday, I wanted to spend time with my Dad, so I brought him and my youngest (older one was working) to the shooting range. My dad had a blast (literally).
We scoped out our targets at 25 and 50 yards.
My little one did an excellent job with the .22 at 25 yards. It's tough because he's a lefty, but he a pretty tight pattern on the target.
My Dad found out why I love the M&P 15. He couldn't put it down! He hit three solid bullseyes and kept a good close pattern on the rest of his shots. He shot an M-1 in the army (sharpshooter, but not in action), but was amazed at how smooth and hot the 15 fired.
After we blew away about $100 in ammo, I gave him a tour of Buffalo Creek (From the truck of coursed). He's never really ridden off-road (though this is not really off-roading), but loved every second of it. He has heart disease and it's a bit shaky for him at altitude, but he finally understood why I love Colorado.
Later that afternoon, I did a short local ride.
I was going to head out to Buffalo Creek on Sunday morning but settled on a shorter ride at Mathew Winters Open Space Park. It was a beautiful morning.
I then went back home and took my parents to Blackhawk (that's our Casino town). They are both retired and like casinos. I'm not so into it. They fell in love with Blackhawk. It was my first time there and I have to say I was impressed. It's actually a pretty cool looking town without all the seediness and dirt of Vegas.
