Yeah, I guess that’s technically where I was. Last weekend was camping with the boys out near Fayettville and Columbus, TX. A friend of a friend of a brother’s fiance’s uncle’s brother’s family owns some land out there, so we packed up (or other people did) and we headed out for a raucous weekend full of shooting, grilling, bonding, and (unfortunately) getting Loko’d.
The first night was pretty wild, full of drinking and hijinks (we was huntin’ wabbit) and lots of alien talk. Sometime are 3AM, somebody had the bright idea of driving off into the woods to hunt boar. I mean, I love bacon as much as the next guy, but it was pretty ridiculous. I think between us we had four guns, a camera, and two flashlights. Needless to say, the best thought and preparation did not go into this venture.
We probably ended up chasing off anything even resembling a hog with all of our frightened chatter about aliens (okay, maybe that was just me and my brother). But we had a hell of a time traipsing through the woods looking for who knows what. And at the end of the night, we actually did manage to nab ourselves a rabbit. And after undercooking it pretty good, it was off to bed.
So this shot is a thank you to whoever’s up there watching over us that we a) didn’t shoot each other, b) didn’t catch something from the bunny we ate, and c) didn’t get abducted by aliens.
Though, I swear the cows were following us…
So good morning Columbus!
