What do you mean I'm stuck? I've got a Jeep!

Edmund has finally finished the upgrade to his Nissan. He did the lift and put on the bigger and more off-road capable tires. Time to go to the mountains to test it out!

The weather was great. We planned to drive to Squamish Freeman Lake, find some forest service road dead ends and set up some targets there for shooting practice.

With the help of GPS, we reached at our destination, which supposed to be the dead end. However, two new roads opened up from there. It’s best to make sure these trails themselves are dead ends. We don’t want to surprise anybody coming our way or be surprised by them when the bullets start to fly.

IPSC Victoria Match

It's been almost a year since my first IPSC match last year. I would have lost qualification and had to take the black badge course again if I didn't do this match!

The stage design were done very well. I've been wondering if the designer got some engineering background. Very confusing and tricky set up. It made today’s game very challenging, and super fun! Some targets were well hidden behind the barrels, easily to be forgotten. Some targets could be engaged from different positions, made you wondering whether it was already been engaged at or not. I've missed three enemy targets (FTE) and accidentally shot two neutral targets (No Shoot) today. Pre-planning is very important for this kind of tricky stages. I saw grand masters committed a few FTE as well! Of course not as many as I did, and they shoot a lot faster too! To do well in this game, skill itself is not enough, brain power also counts. I suddenly felt my memory was not deep enough to keep track all the steps in my plan!

Deer Jump

Leaving Victoria Fish and Game Club, saw a baby deer jumped across the trail in front of my jeep (1:53 to 2:00). Poor deer! I bet she couldn't rest well that day with the guns firing non-stop all day long.

Dr. Strangelove Moment in Crisis Management?

A front-page story in the Wall Street Journal over the weekend reads like spin control as managed by the Federal Reserve: Crises Fall Short Of Going Global‘. This orchestrated sigh of relief reminds one of the scene from Dr. Strangelove when the George C. Scott character, Gen. ‘Buck Turgidson’, offers up a prayer in the War Room when it appears that the U.S. has successfully thwarted an accidental nuclear attack on Russia. Turns out they were wrong: One bomber has actually slipped under Soviet radar, dropping a nuclear payload that would trigger The Doomsday Machine.

Well, it’s true that the financial markets have not collapsed as they did in 2007, notwithstanding the fact that the news from Greece and China has been more than a little worrisome. But to infer that the financial system is in the clear simply because there has not been a panic seems to be inviting trouble. To be sure, the reporters who filed the story, Greg Ip and Jon Hilsenrath, are two of the Journal‘s best. And they do make clear that any number of problems, some of them not even on the banksters’ radar, could set off a financial chain reaction that could have devastating consequences for the global economy and the banking system. But the emphasis is mainly on the “good” story about how well we seem to be coping. So far.
