I just checked. As much fun as it looks, don't think I can handle the 38 hour round trip.  Ya'll have fun!
Lord, make my words as sweet as honey for tomorrow I may have to eat them.  Amen

Bill, I know the feeling of that drive you speak of... Back when the kids were little and the wife and I were younger, we made that trip annually (just the opposite direction (Nebraska to Kentucky and Ohio - then back to Nebraska) visiting family... It's a long trip - I know well...  :shake

That trip kinda reminds me of every year I would attend the Spring Shoot and the Fall Shoot at Friendship.  Went from Coeur d'Alene, ID to Friendship, IN.  IIRC, it was about 2,200 miles each way.  Sometimes Ms. Smoke would accompany me, other times it was a solo adventure.  Drove that in a 1975 Toyota pickup with a camper on the back.  Not quite a luxurious trip.  I think I did that for about 7 years.
I recall one year I did place first in the flint lock aggregate.  And I held that position - until the second shooter turned in his scores.  After that, it was a steady fall into the mediocre range.  Oh well...

John, there were a couple of times we made a side stop at the NMLRA's National Shoot when on vacation, as we headed east...

I didn't compete, but I did watch some of those Offhand Matches, and visited the Vendors, and Museum, and eat some lunch in what I assume was the club house... Best liver and onions I ever et' was at that place...

Sadly, they lost me when they went to the modern Inline Muzzleloaders... Just couldn't go that route, and still can't...

However, it was (and probably will continue to be) the largest gathering of Vendors a person will ever see in one place.

Yes sir... Unless we live in an area out west here that is close to a doings, we all pretty much have some distance to travel just getting to the Rendezvous.

I'm lucky that I have Chadron Fur Trade Days (35 miles to our camp site from my house), and Camp Clark Raiders (down near Bridgeport - 90 miles southeast of me), then there are a few Rendezvous up in South Dakota within 100 to 200 miles of me (give or take),,, but Chadron Fur trade Days is my home base / club...

I'll admit that after a week in camp, I'm a feeling and smelling pretty ripe,,, and it's nice to get home and hit that hot shower, and set on a throne where the flies aren't trying to make you one of their own...  :laffing

But I'll do it all again!!!  :hairy

Went to an event in Washington state one time and the yellow jackets had taken over the outhouse, the rattle snakes claimed the spring and some nasty little bugs of some sort or another had taken over the pond.  It was hotter than the hubs of Hades and the dust was knee deep.  We all had a great time.
