Throwing Rocks in the Middle East

So, one of our road trips to the country of Oman included some rock slinging and an ancient, real, rock sling.

I mean…Seriously.

A friend of ours had some old, OLD rock slings on loan. We loaded up the boys and drove out to a mountain top in the middle of nowhere. Then, the boys went crazy throwing rocks for an hour or so. The rock sling was made out of goat hair, probably similar to the one David used to kill Goliath. We know this only because the slings were on loan from a serious collector who has done some major research.

Also, I can’t take any credit for these fantastic pictures. Our dear friend “Mamma Black” ¬†made it happen.
