I had only a quick jaunt to make from Kingman to Lake Havasu City, Arizona, Thursday morning and so felt able to take the time to negotiate the highway exits off of I-40 to get to the Dinesphere, just outside of Yucca, Arizona. Dave and I had discovered the place on one of our previous roadtrips, but at the time (and several subsequent times when I drove by later) it was a private residence and the curious were not encouraged or welcomed. Dave and I had stopped anyway, just to stand outside the fence and take it all in. So when I was driving by this morning and saw a giant banner hung on the gate that said "OPEN", I took the long turnaround to go and see just exactly what OPEN meant.
I was soon on my way, eager to get to Lake Havasu and jump into the convention. Before noon, I had a nifty badge, several new friends and a schedule of events to follow. Later in the afternoon, I attended the safety training and Class B shooting courses in preparation for making stuff the rest of the weekend and SHOOTING IT OFF! Wahooooo!!!
One last picture for the day: firing practice on the B line just before sunset. I'm sure I'll have lots of firework photos for you soon.
