This is one of the numerous warning signs along the road passing through the Utah Test and Training Range. As I stood here in Internet Documentation Mode, munitions of frightening power were being tested and disposed of in close proximity. Several times I was knocked to the ground by the force of the explosions, necessitating numerous re-shoots. Not to worry---Nikon guarantees that the Scientific Field Edition of the D80 will withstand such punishment.
Before getting out of my military-grade Toyota Sienna I made the wise decision to activate the Mostly Magnificent Mobile Military Munitions Mitigating Force Field (MMMMMMFF; hyperlink not authorized). That decision resulted in my being protected from flying debris throughout this harrowing episode. Of course such protection extended to my brave photographic assistant, Special Forces Technician Joe Tripod, who remained very still in spite of the explosive shocks.
This view is to the north, the direction I went to reach Lakeside. (This is the only practical access route to Lakeside, hence my williness to risk life and limb in the service of the surfing public.) As I drove away, I observed in the rearview mirror that another explosion blasted this sign into splinters. The MMMMMMFF is one of the options offered by Toyota and I thank my wife for insisting that we get it.
I disavow any knowledge of leaving the road surface
at any time, whether in my car or on foot.
