Lately every time I try to post a TR I have trouble accessing the board.

Often it ends in me losing everything I've entered and a message that reads,

"This site can’t be reached.
www.drakemag.com took too long to respond."

Is it just me?

Anyway.

The rest of the trip was more or less the same.

About halfway through the trip I drowned my flip phone.

I'd put it in what was touted as a "sealed pocket" and it marinated in wader water for a full day.

When I told my wife she said, "Well, maybe it's time we both got smartphones."

A few days later I turned it on, and just like Lazarus, it came back to life.

When I got home, an awesome box full of meaty-goodness was waiting for me, along with a dashboard JC to watch over it all, compliments of flybug.

I also received these great stickers from CE.

As for the big fish I missed on the first day, I never went back.

Ironman is coming out next month, so I'm going to let him take a shot at it if he's interested.

Cheers boys.

That was enjoyable.

I had forgotten how close that trail is to the tracks.

Out of all your great TR's - my favorite ones are of that stream and that cabin. Simple perfection. Thanks AJ
