Ready for the Big Bull Elk Hunt?

I'd Rather be Playing! on August 26th, 2008

This morning I woke up I with a sore shoulder. Last night I went with a friend to the shooting range in Ephraim to sight in the 7MM MAG rifle I plan to use for the Big Bull Elk Hunt next month on the Manti-LaSal National forest. It didn’t take many shots with a gun this size before my shoulder started hurting. It “kicks like a mule”. Read the rest of this entry »

Casino Star Theatre, Gunnison

I'd Rather be Playing! on August 19th, 2008

So we showed up at the theatre at 7:30 a.m. on August 19. Lynn Pickett was there with his backhoe, delicately digging out the no-longer-needed oil tank for the recently removed 50-year-old furnace. While Lynn buy modafinil was working, Peterson Refrigeration and Mechanical’s workers (fifth-generation guys in the family business) arrived to begin the duct-work for the new air-control system. In the meantime, Rick Bodell came in to install beautiful acoustical panels, clad in a lush paisley fabric, while electrician Kim Madsen of Manti set about establishing updated wiring to power the air system.

Manti Mountain ATV Run

I'd Rather be Playing! on August 8th, 2008

Today was the first day the the Manti Mountain ATV Run held annually in August. I went down to the Manti city park to see how many people were there to take the guided tour. Alvin, one of the event organizers, said about 75 riders signed up. I don’t think there were that many ATV’s because buy modvigil some of the riders went double. They divided into 4 groups and headed up the mountain on a trail know as the “Sheep Trail”. Over the past 100 years local sheep ranchers used this trail to gain access to the lush green grass located on the mountain for their sheep. I was told that at one point years ago there were up to 100,000 sheep that grazed on the mountain.

I didn’t go with them buy modafinil on the ride, but I hope to make it to the dutch oven dinner tonight at the City park. Tomorrow will be the final day of the Guided Tours. Here are a few pictures taken this morning at the park.

Skyline 10K Run @ 10,000 feet

I'd Rather be Playing! on August 7th, 2008

Ok, so I’m a slug! Last Saturday was the 5th annual Skyline 10K@10K up Fairview Canyon. My wife and brother-in-law buy modafinil participated in the 10K race while I drove the car to the finish line. I actually can say I really enjoyed the race. It was peaceful and relaxing the whole time. I had some time to enjoy the beauty of the mountains and do a little reading. The temperature was perfect, at least for reading, and the vegetation was green and lush. My wife took first place in her category! She’s Great!

So you don’t think I buy modvigil am a complete slug I did run the 5k race at the Manti July 4th Celebration. I did much better this year than last. I also plan to run the Sanpete County Fair Fun Run August 23, 2008 in Manti. The race starts at 7:00am at the Manti High School track for those who would like participate. The route tours Manti and should be fun.
