Alaska... a TR (cont pg 5)

Post by pxatim » Mon Dec 15, 2014 7:16 pm

[report]Seems like the board needs a little kick in the fuk and I've been saving this for a rainy day i'm just really damn busy/lazy

But life seems to get in the way. Truth is we did this trip for just those reasons. To get away.
What started as a family vacation 4 years ago for a halibut trip blossomed into a dream to explore and fish as much of Alaska DIY style as we could. Close to a year and a half of research and planning went into this.

Anyways.. on with it.



Sit back.. pour a drink and hopefully.. enjoy.

Day 1 Itinerary

Wake up at 2:30am drive to BWI. No worries we'll be on the stream by 5p AK..maybe

Image

Image

Image

Pick up RV.. stock up on 2 weeks plus supplies. It wasn't enough.

Image

South Bound.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

As promised.. on the stream with less than an hour of daylight.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Tired, jetlagged, anxious for what was to come we retreated drinking beer under an Alaskan star filled sky.

To be continued...............[/report]

Thanks for the break from the fuck-stickery that has recently infected the site.

[report]Day 1 + 1

Arrival put us on the peninsula on labor day weekend. 1.5 yrs of planning and we arrive to a shit show.

No matter.. we made due. Hell we fish for rustheads in worse.

Fishing was lights out awesome.

Once again we found ourselves full from a meal of the freshest silver salmon you could ever imagine. Drinking beers, reminiscing on the past day. Was this even real. That 3 average guys from PA thousands of miles away from home up here doing it right. Doing it the way we wanted to. The light faded and we watched the dall rams graze on the mountains above the mighty glacial fed river around the glowing warmth of the camp fire.

Life is good... only 13 more days to go.

More to come....[/report]

Keep that shit coming man, reminds me of when summer was once up here. And good choice on the Hopo.

Looks like you'll now have to explore Southeast next time ya come up here.

I'd suggest going a little easy on the filters though :cool
I suggest you contribute something of substance, you know... an introduction, a trip report, or something... anything, before proffering suggestions to those who do.
