  1. It ain't over, not by a long shot. The last couple of big dumps extended a few resort seasons. Yesterday and today are warm bluebird days with very few people. Of course you need to be selective and follow the softening snow. Also some south facing runs are getting shut down early in the day due to wet slide potential. Fricking awesome spring season on tap for the next few weeks.
  2. Speaking of keeping us posted.... How goes it with the new boat?
  3. Yep I have something just like that now, works great in the camper and house. However space on a raft is even tighter then that of a sailboat!
  4. Next on my list of nice to have is some sort of coffee press mug. Any suggestions?
  5. I rarely go anyplace that requires stealth, tons of public land out and around here. For minimalism I use a tarp/bivy sack/thermarest/ultralight down bag. Cooking is mostly boiling water on a pocket rocket for coffee, oatmeal and such. Always room for a flask of good scotch. River trips are a different story all together. As much comfort and gastronomic joy that can be loaded on the boat. Having said that I'm hoping water and weather hold for a very remote float in bfe Idaho. That will be minimalist. Self supported kayak or shredder type craft. Trip report to follow if it
  6. OK one more, no time to start a new thread. Typical early spring pre run off day in the upper Arkansas valley. Caught a few and spen 45 minutes one good looking fish who who took a look and a swipe at some tiny bugs. Here is a typical brown in the river.
  7. With a saintly mix of poise, grace and patience. Oh, and a sandwich.
  8. Gross inattention to detail..........
  9. Yo Boothy, long time. WTF, its quarter to 5 in the morning in Mexico. You should be sleeping off a hangover.
  10. Or "I'm going to put you on ignore.........."
  11. At the risk of sending this down the political shitter, did anybody reading this really "need" this manufactured money?
  12. Thanks for the update boomer. Stay strong hobot, the world needs you, not just this place.
  13. For educational purposes. Went aground at low tide, would be very bumpy but just wait to float off? Learned that the hard way myself..... And no attempt to reduce draft....
  14. This happened a couple years ago at our little regional airport. Car landed about 650 feet beyond the airstrip. https://www.9news.com/article/news/two-men-in-their-70s-dead-after-airport-runway-test-drive-crash/73-473212677
  15. I was in line inside a gas station in cedar city Utah. The woman ahead of me had on a ragged t-shirt, baggy shorts and flip flops. She accessorized via a bag of urine strapped to her ankle and a tube running back up into her shorts. Now that's classy.
  16. Well crap, thought I found "the boat". Left colorado yesterday morning, slept in the desert outside Las Vegas, made it to check out the trailer at the owners house in Hesperia. It needs work, not insurmountable but work, at the very least to get it home. Went to see the boat in Wilmington, what a miserablele trip. It needs work, a lot but again not insurmountable. Not at all as described by the owner. Between both needing work and the distance between the trailer and boat I wrote it off as a long drive to watch the sunset over the pacific. Phuk.
  17. My standard issue summer clothing almost always includes some type of super light hood. Like I tell people, "You don't get a face like this from wearing sunscreen"
  18. Since yesterday was the last day of winter I decided to get one last day of "winter" fishing in. Nice warm sunny day, banks were ice free for the most part. Fishing was productive, not stellar but still a great day. A little after noon a couple people showed up, far too crowded for me. Last fish was pretty decent but it ran at me and swam between my legs and wrapped my waders, saved me getting my hands wet again. Time for someone to start the 2021 fishing thread, I'm skiing today.
  19. My first wife was a bat shit crazy redhead. My eldest son is full on ginger. Seen my share of sunburn over the years. One day the kid is playing at a friend's at the apartments behind the house. They decide to go for a swim. He looked like a boiled lobster, developed 2nd degree blisters all over his back.
  20. Two gingers on a sailboat? Whatever they end up with better have lots of shade available.
  21. Or a hermit named Dave?
