Winter, and all this fresh powder.

I got lucky and found a few cans of Varget powder at the local gunshop recently. They usually get cleaned out pretty fast so I grabbed four 1 pound cans. It was either that or get some via mail-order, and that is expensive due to hazmat fees and the cost of shipping.

So now I realize that I actually have powder for a change. I am normally too broke to afford anything other than a couple of pounds a year. So here I sit with enough IMR 7828, H 4895 and Varget to get some serious reloading happening. There is a catch...

It's freezing out there. The windchill in the last few days actually freezes exposed flesh in as little as 5 minutes. It also snowed a fair bit and I don't feel like snowshowing my way to the 100 yard targets. I have braved the cold in the past to get in some range time, but this cold snap is too much for me.

Living in Saskatchewan, you'd think I be used to the fact that some activities are just not going to happen from January through February. I wish I was rich enough to have a winter home, maybe somewhere down in Texas or new Mexico (whoever has he friendliest gun laws).

Okay, so it's not an iPhone...

I grabbed a new phone.

Does the world need another cell phone review?
NO !!

This is just for people who may be a little like me.There are those out there that haven't got great eyesight, and love a bigger, more readable cellular phone screen (Hell the LG Voyager has 2 big screens). Maybe you are like me and hate typing messages or notes on the dinky little numeric keypads most phones offer. Well then, you will probably enjoy the nicely sized QWERTY keyboard on the Voyager too.

Here is an obligitory picture...

I finished Fallout 3

I played the hell out of Fallout 3. It was such a great game, I just couldn't stop playing almost daily. Bethesda designed it so well, that if I didn't want to follow the main quest, I could just wander around the massive world of Washington DC and explore. I did just that. I played every side quest I could, and explored 95% of the massive map.

I won't spoil it for anyone by describing the ending, but will only say that it was awesome. I highly recommend this game as a completely fun RPG. I'm pretty sure this game may be the most enjoyable game I have ever played. I have to admit that I'm sad that it's over
