1. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one
.2. Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.
3. Have a plan.
4. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won't work.
5. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet
.6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a '4.'
7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral & diagonal preferred.)
9. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
10. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
12. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
13. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating your intention to shoot.

After packing most of the day, Sandi picked up Taylor after school Friday and we headed up to Brian Head and to to some chores on the Utah Property. I knew the weather was going to be bad so I thought it better to get a room for the night just in case. We woke up early Saturday, ate a huge breakfast and looked for a place to sled. There were none. We found this kewl tubing place and checked it out. It was right next to a lodge and medical center and for two hours and $15.oo you could go down the hill as many times as you could cycle back up. We had a great time tubing until we were frozen then headed to lodge for some warmth and libation. Of course we stopped in Cedar City at our favorite "Pizza Factory" and chowed down. I ended up having to put the Durango into 4x4 to get up to the property. Unfortunately the snow was about three feet deep and the neighbors had plowed the road but ended up blocking the road down to the property. It was raining and deep snow. If the tractor (why if went up to get it winterized) had been running and not sitting for so long I could have made quick work of clearing the road. Never the less, we decided to turn back, having forgotten the chains for the Durango I didn't want to chance getting stuck.
The ride back to Las Vegas was beautiful. There was a bad wreak, northbound just south of New Harmony. Hopefully no one was hurt. The beautiful white clouds hunkered low against the mountains and we drove through one of the best rain storms I've been through. Taylor watched a movie on the DVD system while Sandi read a book. I just reminisced as my memory rushed back to days of yore.
Were going to try again next weekend now that Sandi has decided to take a break this year and spend more "Family" time with us on the weekends. It was a fun trip!
