I just got back into town on Friday at 3:00pm from a great fishing trip on the Middle Provo River, just outside of Park City Utah http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/24457701

Knowing I'd be getting up in twelve hours (3:00am) to go quail hunting I ran around like a madman, running errands, doing laundry, and packing my gear. I somehow managed to get four hours sleep before my alarm went off. Damn it's early.

I got to my buddy's house around 4:30am and we started loading gear and his dog. A short two and a half hour drive later we were down by the Sultan Sea, just north of Niland CA (in the middle of frigging nowhere).

Five of us headed out, and we saw a few birds, and I took a few shots, but by noon we had ONE bird between the five of us (and it wasn't mine). It was a long, hot, walk in the desert (with guns).

We were going to Salvation Mountain and Slab City (because I had never seen them), then over to Niland to get some lunch at the ONE cafe in town. While driving down a dirt road (still in the middle of frigging nowhere) we saw a car coming toward us. They stopped, and it was two young French (hippy) chicks looking for, you guessed it, Salvation Mountain. The fact that they were in the middle of the desert gave me concern, they fact that they were headed the wrong way, made my head spin.

Salvation Mountain is a painted mountain covered with bible verses that will save your soul.

Slab City is a former Marine barracks that was decommissioned in 1956. The camp has no electricity, no running water, no sewers, no toilets, no trash service, and no cops. It's a cross between a hobo camp, a hippy commune, a perpetually running Burning Man Festival, and an RV park.

We spent the night at my other friend's duck hunting club. It's really nothing more than a few nice trailers near a few flooded ponds, but it has far fewer hobos than Slab City :)

As we were feasting on an incredible dinner of yellow tail, red wine, and Italian sausage someone asked, "I wonder what the poor people are eating for dinner tonight" someone replied, "who gives a ****". G-d Bless America.

Wow. That last part could have been left out. Show some empathy for crying out loud. Lots of people in this country are having a hard time because of this economy. But screw em, right?

Lot's of poor people in America, so I don't know about the "God Bless America" bit either. That being said you weren't exactly eating Chateaubriand with a jeroboam of Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1945.

I wonder if the poor people are saying," I wonder what the classless middle class trap shooters are shoving in their pie holes tonight? Probably sausage." (I guess they were right).

I know I don't want to hang out with either of the two "someones." I also noticed a distinct lack of quail.

+1, the last part could have been omitted especially when it hits close to home for a lot of us.

We see you looking in the thread Brad but no apology or standing your ground to defend what you stated.

Someone asked me what the difference was between trap, skeet, and sporting clays. One's for old men, one's for old women, one's called sporting clays.

Come on guys, it's just a hunting (and in this case, fishing) story. Lighten up.

I guess you have missed the point. But I have to say, I am not surprised.

Cut the crap with the trolling. Given your "history" here, you should be more mindful of what you post and what you have to say about the members here.
