Days Are Slow But Weeks Are Fast At The Beach

I think as Einstein developed the General Theory of Relativity he must have spent a week at the beach on vacation. That is because though the days are relaxed and time slows, the week itself is over before you know it. We leave tomorrow and it feels like we just got here.

That said, we had a wedding, a visit to the PTR Industries factory, and will take in a car show today for Mustang Week.

Moreover, out in the “real” world, someone shot down a Malaysian Air Boeing 777 and the Obama Administration has essentially banned the import of new Russian firearms through economic sanctions against Concern Kalashnikov. Conspiracy theorists should be having a field day with the timing of the sanctions and the shoot down of the Malaysian Air plane over Ukraine given the sanctions were only a day before the shoot down.

I’ll have a full story about the visit to PTR Industries factory when I get home. I have a ton of pictures of the factory floor and the manufacturing process.

Beachward, Ho!

I will have light blogging for the next week. We are leaving this morning for our annual multi-family trip to the beach. This will be our first time at Garden City Beach, SC. It is just south of Myrtle Beach. The house we are renting is supposed to have WiFi so I hope to get some posts up over the week.

One thing I plan to do on the vacation is organize a trip to the range. I’ll be taking some new and/or very inexperienced shooters to a local range for some shooting time. I hope to have some pictures of that.

The other thing I hope to do is catch up on my reading. I am in the midst of Mike Detty’s account of Operation Wide Receiver and will do a review when I’m finished.

So have a great week and don’t work too hard.

Down The Shore

As my friends in New Jersey and the Philly area might say, we are going down the shore. Or as we in the Carolinas might say, we’re goin’ to Myrtle as in Myrtle Beach, SC. Actually, we are going just south of there to Surfside Beach.

It is a family vacation and we’ll have a house full of people. I think my count for tonight is around 16 with a high of around 20 sometime during the week. It will be organized chaos but a whole hell of a lot of fun.

As you might expect, the blogging this coming week will be hit and miss. I am bringing a handful of DVDs that I need to review including “Make Ready with Michael Bane – Concealed Carry” which arrived in the mail yesterday. You can expect a full review on that when I get back.

I think I have everything packed and ready to go. I have the rum (dark and light) for Tiki drinks, I have the good bourbon for toasting anniversaries, a few Aloha shirts, and my bathing suit. Sounds about right!
