Paintball 2008-03-01

JT paintball organized a woodsball event and invited anyone to join. When Kevin and I showed up, there were very few people, but soon we had two teams of 8 or so playing. We got up to payson canyon area, and there was still snow in the mountains... more than we had thought would be there... the field was a foot and a half of snow, crusty on the top. In places, you could actually walk on top of the 18 inches of snow... however, ususally, you broke through. So each step was an interesting adventure, and running was almost impossible. So combine new equiptment, with unknown footing, and snow everywhere, and you had one heck of a game area. We played many different types of games. Each time, you wanted to be on the team that stayed put, because the trudge to the other side of the field wore you out, with half or more of the steps breaking thru the snow.
Needless to say, by the end of the 3+ hours we were there, we were cold, wet, tired, and thrilled with our first time out this year. Everything was wet. But we had a blast.
Paintballing is a blast. You run and duck and run again. Its such a kick...
I spilled my hopper of ammo out, and spilled a bag as well. Live and learn. Need to be more careful in the future.
