Wasilla, Alaska
It's a pretty nice area and my real estate dollars will go further than a lot of other areas. Etta and I are are small town folk. We lived in Walla Walla for many years and that was bigger than I liked. Wasilla has gotten very populated in the 17 years we've been here. It's still a nice area and way better than living in Anchorage, but the traffic has gotten bad and it continues to grow with no end in site. Good time to sell and move to a quieter, slower paced area.

Our son's widow still lives near Boise and has remarried and has a son whom my wife has claimed as a grandson. She has nieces in Idaho and Oregon and my Mom is still in Walla Walla. Mom is planning to move near us or perhaps even put a good quality manufactured home on whatever property I find. We're going to get some acreage with the home we buy.


May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

About as close as I get to a lightweight rig.

CZ527 Kevlar Varmint in .223AI. Its one of the older 12 twist guns, so its relegated to light bullets. It really likes the 50gr Vmax at about 3500fps. Barrel trimmed back to 18", usually wears a Silencerco Harvester. Leupold Mark AR 3-9 on a DIP rail.

I love mine in .17 FB. My current project is a Browning Micro in .22 Hornet that’s getting a suppressor and hopefully soon a thermal scope. Dave

17FB would be a sweet rig in the predator! I found a 17FB sps a few years ago and put it in a LV stock, she was my latest love affair before this one.

I took the predator to the range today and figured dope/dial out to 500, my strelok app is on the money.......varmints beware!

Don't have a walker, although I do walk around with my varminters. With a sling. And sticks. AND sometimes, a surveyor's tripod WITH A BIG STRAP.

25-06 Rem 700 CDL with 6x Leupold & 115 Berger VLD. I like using this on coyotes 'n such, 'cause I use the same setup on mule deer & antelope. Good practice. The other side of that coyote almost doesn't exist either... Ugh.
