I'm on vacation this week, doing things like major house work, running radio antenna lines into the basement (and planning out at least one more antenna), building bookshelves and so on. But sometime this week, I wanna go here: Atterbury Range! I have not been there since the last big revamping. The place looks plush (especially the clubhouse, compared to the decrepit trailer rangemasters previously used; looks like the pistol range is much improved, too) and it's in a pretty portion of the State. Likely to be Shotgun Heaven this time of year.
Amusingly enough, you can see the range as I saw it last, here: beseems that because the place is right by Camp Atterbury (and within the WW II-era boundaries), updates to satellite pix of the area are a bit slow. (I'm having difficulty coming up with numbers but Indiana's Guard and Reserve troops are and have been deployed in a very big way and an awful lot of them pass through Atterbury).
My baby bro the reservist chaplain (no, really) points out that Indiana is bombed regularly by the USAF, mostly flying out of Virginia, hitting the South section of Camp Atterbury. Daggone it, I thought the War Between The States was over already!
