I wouldn't just drive it but then that is me. How big a deduct and what is the estimate to get it well again. How much will they raise the rates on you.  Never an easy choice when it still is usable right..
They hit it hard enough to bend the intrusion bar and I noticed today that the got both right hand doors. Body shop said around $2,000 with and insurance deductible of $250 so I'm thinking that the insurance will get ac call

I had the joy of going to the body shop today because someone with questionable family lineage ran into the side of my truck and drove off with out a note or anything!  Right rear door is messed up so now the question do I turn it in on insurance,  pay for it or just drive it? Something for me to think about.

The top male and female runners from the race both got a copy of Don's book (tank's Don) they are brother and sister he ran an average 4:35 mile she did a average 4:55 mile. Oh to be young! Their dad was in the same unit that Bret was in and was in Afghanistan at the same time. The lady on the far right is Krysten, Bret's little sister and the organizer of the race. The picture of the flag is what we found when we started passing out the race packets. I went and got a new flag and stopped by the fire station to see if they could bring a ladder over to help replace it and save me about a 40 mile trip to go get my ladder. One of the firemen that came over Bret was his best man in his wedding. Small world and a God thing I'm sure.

If you want to listen to a fun SR 71 story YouTube and others have the LA seen check story by Brian Shule (sp)

We the race is done, I walked it with my wife she isn't much into the whole running/jogging thing. We had 125 men and women run in Afghanistan which is awesome in my book. We had over 300 total register but not all showed up but still had a great show up and race. The commanding General of the Oklahoma National Guard come and run also, by the way I think if you are 7 feet tall and run in a timed event they should have to add extra time added to there time lol. But with it all said and done we raised around $10,000.00 for Bret scholarship which is the best so far. Now Bret ' sisters are talking about should the up the dollar amount, give more than one scholarship or save for the future scholarship.  I will post some picture after I go back and read on how to do that. Thanks for reading

Steve

Race is Saturday and I haven't done much in the way of updates we have 261 people registered to run the race with a bunch running in Afghanistan.  The Oklahoma National Guard adjacent General is planning on coming.  Pre race package pick up is tomorrow. I will let you all know how it turns out. Thanks for reading

Quick update,  the men from the unit that Bret was in donate $1,00.00 for the race and gotten more sponsor to step up. The on line registration is open and getting people to sign up

Thanks again

Don, Krysten said she would love to give away to the top finisher of the race. She asked if we could buy a 2nd copy and get you to sign that one and give it to the top male and female finisher?

Thanks
Steve

I'm good for the one for sure, the other is available on Amazon. If you go that route, send it to me, I'll sign and send to you.
So, forward me your address. and I'll get out what I have.
Don, I order the last book from Amazon today so I will may that to you when it comes in

Thanks Steve

Quick update; we have gotten several sponsor letters and checks (15 I think) so that will take care of a good part of the price of putting on the event ( medals,  T shirts, water, fruit and official time keeper). Starting to all come together which is a good thing. Krysten is hoping to give out more scholarship or larger ones.

That was 5 years ago and on 18 May we will be having our 5th 5K in Seminole Oklahoma. Each year it has had more people attened, donate/support. This year one of the guys that was with Brett when he was killed has become a Army NG chopper pilot and is working to do a fly over (sorry Don Ithink that it will be in Blackhawks). Krysten has got the sponser letter sent out in is already working on the design for this years t-shirt. Last year several of members of the unit that Brett was in had been deployed they signed up on line and ran the 5K in the AOR.

With all that said I hope you enjoy this build thread for a 5 K run to honor a young man
BlackHawks or not, that is one honorable and cool thing to have happen. Congrats on pulling all this off, and my sincere condolences for your unfathomable loss.

I could donate a signed copy of my book as a door prize if you'd like...
Don, Thank you for the offer I will ask the boss (Krysten) if she would like to do that and let you know

Sept 9 2011 we lost our hero in Afghanistan do to small arms fire when people from that coutry attacked his unit.

https://thefallen.militarytimes.com/army-sgt-bret-d-isenhower/6567969

The town that he grew up in Seminole Oklahoma has done many things to honor his memory and I just wanted to share. My step daughter Krysten wanted to do something to honor her brother and to keep him alive in people memorries and to remind them that freedom is not free. Brett loved to run which he did a lot. One New Year eve he and his Frat brother ran a relay from Seminole to Ada (30 miles) oh and it was about 15 deg outside all because someone said they couldn't do it. After the 1st year with out him Krysten took up running is started off with running around town but each run got longer and longer, she now has 5 marathons, 3 half and several 5K under her belt. She feels that Brett along with the Holy Spirt talks to her on these runs and gives her directions for her like along with great comfort. She and Brett had one of the best relationship that I have ever seen between a brother and sister. Well on one of these runs she got the idea of starting a 5 K run and the money would go to set up a scholarship  in Brett's name at the high school that they both graduated from. This plan started in Dec and she wanted the run to be the weekend before Memorial day! I'm here to tell you that she pulled it off, she got the city to block off roads that the runners would be on, a promotion company with timer so that it is a qualifing race for marathoners, sponsers, T shirts and medals. Never underestimate the drive of a young lady that loved her brother.

Men,

A new prayer request; a friend of mine Howard A life passed away yesterday morning.  He was a Vietnam vet that had been exposed to Agent Orange and developed cancer from that exposure for several years now. Please pray for his family, Howard ' daughter in law passed away about a year ago so his son is taking this loss very hard.

Thank you
Steve

Because sometime we just need to hear a good story.
Earlier this week a young man that had been in our church from the time he was conceived now he is married and has 2 kids of his own. He hadn't been feeling well for a few months so he went to a doctor and they did and MRI and told him that it looked like pancreatic cancer and scheduled him to see an oncologist on Friday, by the way he has had 2 family members I know of that have died of pancreatic cancer. Getting into see a specialist with in a week is kind of rare I think. There had been many Prayers said for him, well he gets to see the oncolgist on Friday and after all the test the doctor ask him if he believes in miracle and he said yes! The doctor said you should, "I don't know what your people did but there is no sign of cancer like the test showed from you doctor"

Praise God!

Real - men don't need no recoil pad. Get rid of that and go with a good steel butt plate so you can end up with a shoulder that looked like mine after shooting mine. LOL

Good looking rifle, I have 2 45/70 rifles and love both just not the bruised shoulder
I'll have you know, it's your fault I got that darn thing. Shame on you for posting up pics!!

Shawn, I had a choice between the Marlin and Henry. The henry action was tighter, and the machining a little more precise, and nicer furniture imo.
I liked the Marlin lever/handle better, and also the gated magazine...just something weird about loading a rifle with your hand over the muzzle that seems "off". lol

Hey now you guys said I had to post pictures. "It is the rules" and all LOL

I didn?t even comment on this thread and he has to disparage the Air Force. And to correct you, I?ve never gotten a bruised shoulder from a .22, I fireit from the hip like a real warrior, I saw that on Rambo!!    :cool:

Reminds me of my shoulder after sighting in my 460wby


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Never shot a 460wby but I would say that the 45 70 isn't a round you go shot several 100 rounds in a weekend.

I know the loads probably weren?t as heavy but think about those old timers who used to hunt buffalo for skins. Recall that scene in dances with wolves?

That is what I was think 20 rounds did that what would it look like if I shot all day long!

is 9 out of 10 bad?
