Leaving on a Jet plane

Its been a busy traveling month for me. These are shots from my last flight back from Sacramento to Denver (the flip side of the gremlin ride out). This past week I was back out on the east coast in Baltimore again. The whole experience has really gotten more worn out and I haven't really found any serious opportunities to paint. This is a bad thing with Reaper Con coming up towards the end of April I really need to buckle down and get my entries started. Right now I have three picked out and we will see how they go. I would like to do a vehicle entry but I don't now if I can pull that off as well. I have plenty of 15mm vehicles around that I could work on but they typically don't do well in painting competitions, at least not something like ReaperCon. I need to see if I have any mechs around that I could paint up or maybe a larger vehicle kit to work on.

Anyway here are the shots coming back from Sacramento to Denver, it was kind of depressing flight.

A beautiful day in Sacramento

Heading east into the mountains

This is an open pit mining operation. You can see  two of the pits which much be huge since we are currently flying at 38,000'.

Crossing some snow capped peaks

And now the clouds of hidden everything, this does not bode well.

Yep, here we are in Denver, getting to the gate while the snow falls. I still have to hike out to my car after this too!

    1. There is some neat stuff to be seen between here and CA. Unfortunately the batteries in my regular camera were dead or some of those would have come out better.

  2. You have been travelling a lot for the last couple of months. Definitely not conducive to competition painting. Personally, I'd like to see a vehicle or a mech. One does get tired of knights, ladies and robes after a time.

    1. And it looks like I'll be traveling just as much for the next couple of months...sigh. Hopefully I already have something, I have a couple of kits for sure but I can do what I want with them in the time that's left.
