Weekend # 5: Quail Hunting in Fort Valley, Georgia:
Beaux Eden Plantation : Feb 2008

All it took was me showing just a little bit of interest. That's all it took for Michael to dream up the plan.

"You'll stay at my house on Friday night, We'll drive down to Macon on Saturday, go hunting, and then maybe shoot skeet in the afternoon. You're gonna love it!"

With that 2 minute conversation, the plan was set into motion. And so it came to pass, that on the morning of february the 9th, 2008, the Ogre of Chilltown, J.C. was indoctrinated in the Fraternal Order of Quail Hunters.
