cause there's always pictures.

Wifey and I were sitting (So Cal) around last night trying to decide what to do for dinner. I wanted surf, she wanted turf, we both wanted to shoot sporting clays.

Sure, we could have gone to Sizzler then over to Raahauge's, or up to Red Lobster then to Triple B Clays.

But if you want the best in Surf & Turf & Sporting Clays, there's really only one choice, and you can't see Russia from there.

Yep, Grouse Ridge Shooting Grounds in Wasilla Alaska, and their Friday night "grill your own steak" event. It's pretty much like it sounds, grab a steak off the pile, toss it on the grill.

That was the "turf" tomorrow we go in search of "surf".

Oh, and if you go up remember this phrase: I wanted to come inside after the breakup to shoot a walk-thru, but the damn chichocko's had all the flights booked. I'm staying out on KGB near the Parks, so I should be OK.

Americans won't know what you're talking, but it is music to an Alaskan's ears.

P.S. When we got to Grouse Ridge it was overcast, but the sun came out around 9:00pm so we moved outside :)

Just got back from Alaska (a cruise) myself... beautiful country up there, and the few actual Alaskans I met were amazing people.

I've also met some of the most beautiful girls up there... the cold must preserve them well. ;-)

A few more Alaska pictures !!!

The first ones are people panning for gold on the Little Su.

Then we drove up to Hatcher Pass. I thought people in Alaska were "quirky", Neil pointed out they were "colorful".

Then we ended up back at Grouse Ridge, to shoot a little FITASC

And now i want to go there to schmooze with the counter girl, for more reasons than her looks.

Grouse Ridge is an amazing place. Probably the best I've ever been to, and I've been to a lot of clubs.

It's an easy one hour drive if you're in Anchorage. If you're up there for any reason, you owe it to your self to stop by.

They also have a skeet field, an Int'l skeet field, and a magnum skeet field.
