Eight of us drove up north and played paintball today. We were able to play several different games. At one point, we had to stop playing because of the massive amounts of rain pouring down. Most of us battled fogged lenses all day, making it pretty hard to see what you were doing. I lost track of time because we were having so much fun. My team had a hard time getting the objectives, but in the last battle of the game, we were triumphant.
Here are a few more pictures, thanks to Jim:
One the way up highway 24, we noticed that DPS officers were out everywhere. We went over one bridge, and saw a K-9 unit out looking for something, and a guy with a flack jacket labeled “secret service”. A helicopter was seen also. We knew something was up, but weren’t sure what it was. It turns out that the president of Pakistan was going up to the Paris, TX hospital. From theparisnews.com:
A line of Texas Department of Public Safety troopers and Secret Service agents are part of a high-security convoy on Saturday Sept. 23, 2006, transporting Gen. Pervez Musharraf, President of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to Paris Regional Medical Center.
