    ...with my class. We went to "Fulumountains" and checked out Swedens biggest waterfall, Njupeskär. Then we walked to the top of the mountain and spend the night in some small cottages. But I and four friends decided to sleep outside! Cold, and not much sleep, but very fun! Two of my friends gave up and got back to the house at 3 in the morning... <br><br>Luckily I brought a slingshot to kill boredom. One of my classmates had brought some Cola-cans and when they was empty, I used them as targets! One of my friends got very interested and we didnt almost do anything but shooting until it got dark... <br><br>Conclusion: Walking in the mountains is nice, if you remember to bring your sling! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> (The view was beautiful and seeing the waterfall was really cool too... but nothing beats some shooting with your friends! Next time I have to bring two slingys, so we can have one each!)<br><br>This is the slingshot I used, btw:<br><br><img src="http://i30.servimg.com/u/f30/17/50/40/49/slings10.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>The great thing with these hich forks is that it allows you to shoot unsymmetric objects like stones or so. It got a lots of fork hits (my friends a slingshots newbie, that was the first time ever he shot a slingshot!) so I have decided to make a new "camping slingshot" that can shoot rocks/ stones and arrows (with an screw on whisker biscuit with tubular rubber.).

    I can imagine how it feels.<br><br>Maybe you can take it on a trip outside your country and have a great time.

    onnod: They liked it! They wanted to try and then and afterwards they actually ordered two of them for their company that arranges bachelor parties and stuff!(Usually I dont sell my stuff...) <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> And when we came home the other day I got lots of old tubular rubber that they used in the gym before... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> I plan to make them two MBBS slingshots! At first I thought of the power-metal slingshot with adjustable forkheight that Jörg presented in an earlier video, but fimo-clay is very expensive here!<br><br>brat boon: Too bad <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cry.gif" alt="Crying or Very sad" longdesc="11">

    pasquale: Sure was!<br><br>Actually I met two germans (One from Saxony!) that also spend their night in one of the cottages. And they had never heard of Jörg Sprave! I told them about the website and they said they should check it out when they came home. Then we had a chat about weapons of all kinds, I learned that spiked ammo is illegal in Germany.
