Well, I'm around and it's a six hour drive from where I live to Phoenix. Or a sub-$99 flight (each way) on Southwest Airlines. I have a trip to Washington DC planned for October 23-29. I'm running the Marine Corps marathon on the 25th.
With 20 days of leave, were you going to try to burn a lot of that while you are over here? Or if nobody's around were you just gonna take off back to the UK? If you're still in the southwest after the 29th, then I'd definitely be down for meeting. If you could get out this way, we could definitely go shooting. I have a bunch of .223 ammo but need some pistol ammo. My buddies could get us onto the tribal police's shooting range or we could just go into the boonies. Too bad you weren't here last week when we had our one big tourist event of the year, the balloon fiesta
Where will you be staying?
Vegas sounds like fun, but I'm tapped out right now. I've got a guest room in my house if you get over my way.
Let me know.
