whoa, i almost missed this entertaining thread .. been busy kayaking.
you guys are hilarious though. 'specially you, pete. wish i had more time to think up snarky shit about how rad my home zone is .. but i gotta get my work done so i can enjoy yet another 3-day weekend of back-to-back waterfalls & splashy Ashlu goodness. you guys wouldn't like it here anyway .. too cold, too rainy, too much vegetation, too much water in the runs, etc. the holes are big here .. not fun.
BTW, nice "dig me!" fishing portrait in the creeking gallery -- guess that's what it's come to. then again, it IS mid-summer (read: season over) in Colo, after all. now you only have, what, 3 months til the blue ice forms a "run" at keystone & loveland, & then it's -- yaaaay! -- ski season for the next 7 months!
