When there's really nothing for you to do.

You build a trebuchet! We launched a 12 lb sandbag 370' with this thing.

Yeah, just to clarify, the rules were anything from the giant recycling dumpsters they have around here, anything that can be reused or anything that is deemed unservicable. All of the lumber came from the recycling bins, several other items came from DRMO and the rest of it can be reused.

It was a contest the squadron was doing to see who could throw a 12 lb sandbag the farthest. It was something we did in our free time for fun, but we do have a lot of free time.

That is a pretty good one. I have seen those made for Pumpkin throwing. The ones they make in no-holds barred pumpkin competitions toss a 25 lb pumpkin about twice as far. Nice accomplishment with what you can find in the middle of the desert! :thumb:

Yep, amnesty boxes and dog hits at the search pit.

Dave is actually in the same squadron as me. He works in the escort flight. I think they came in second place.
