Paintballing...

It seems to be the season of Stag days for me as i had one yesterday and have another next Saturday. Yesterday was paintballing in Monaghan. I must admit, having heard lots about it but never having done it before i was really excited! I wasn't disappointed, it was a great days craic and if you've never done it then give it a go! It was run by a company called Escarmouche Paintball who were very professional and well organised. I took these pics of our day from their website.

It ain't too often a group of respectable adults can get away with running around a forest in camouflage gear carrying a weapon capable of firing pellets of paint at 150-200mph at people (causing serious bruising for some might i add)! You also feel no embarrassment shouting phrases like 'cover me' and 'flank left' cos they make sense!!!


Given my current climate of watching 24 season 5 (i'm on episode 9) and my recent reading of Wild at Heart by John Eldredge, this was just what i needed as an outlet to express myself and that adventurous spirit that supposedly is built into the make-up of man!

I think this pic to the right might be me but its hard to tell!

Paintballing is AMAZING!! When Justin and I went years ago he ended up with bruises that left marks for MONTHS! Ah. Good times. Good times!
