    Got in at dark last night after stopping at Sparta Wally World. Learned my lesson too, no street signs and it took me 30 mins to find my camp site. (North 40) Set up and ready to register and get classified. Temps. not bad so far today. If I need to pinch myself that I am really at the Grand American, all I really need to do is review the scores from yesterday in C and D Classes!Start shooting tomorrow.Looks like a full campground(s).

    They sure need better (any) street signs so poor smucks like me can find their camping spot at night.

    Weather was great today. Nice breeze and humidity wasn't near as bad. Met three people from TS.COM and shot with one. Funny thing he recognized my homemade shooting cart and came up and asked my name. We ended up on the same squad together simply by chance. Nothing better after shooting caps than a jalapeno brat from Butchers Block and a bowl of peach ice cream. Life is good. Blade, you should look me up if you choose.

    BIGDON: when it's pitch ass dark, they could have had 4'x4' signs out and I wouldn't have seen it. I use to be able to find St. Joe in the dark, but here? grntitan: I'll look for your cart tomorrow,I think I've seen it already at the GA State. Am I correct?
