Maybe you found Pete.








If it's cold and rainy, then how did you manage hot Italian sannies? Fred added the panini press to the engine block?

Had a great time with some awesome people.

Rock solid dudes!

The food was ok....

I can not row a bote for fuk all. Though I did not get stuck on a rock, I tried to beach us on a high bank with a tree in the way.

Great times.

(For you, Jose)



On Freeday, we were late due to trailer lights, and met Mr Pumking himself, Cervisiaireallylikethatpumkingbeer, Dnymph, and Mr Expresso William, somewhere mid river.



The meal D made was just great. I paid a big price though, due to the second plate, late. It's almost never, I get more Q, but it was good. About 2:00am, I woke up with terrible indigestion.



Everyone else's day started like this:

[URL=http://s1091.photobucket.com/user/mcartechine/media/073D1206-C1A2-499F-BFD3-3193375AABCE_zpsk4ujwiuj.jpg.html][IMG]http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/i397/mcartechine/073D1206-C1A2-499F-BFD3-3193375AABCE_zpsk4ujwiuj.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

Mine started like this:

It was really cold, and everything was frozen. Others took some really cool am pics, perhaps they will share.

With Bradley giving William more oar pointers, Mr Don joined us.

Same lousy scenery.

We looked at prime real estate.

Glad we missed security during the trespass.

There were Sheetz gas station sannies, cookies, and the best chips ever: Snyder Kettle Cooked Hawaiian Sweet Visalia Onion.

At some point, I caught a fish. Asshole Pune.

Then 10 minutes later D caught one.

2 full days floating, and that was it.

Never seen this during daylight.

We lost the sun quick.

We drank.

[URL=http://s1091.photobucket.com/user/mcartechine/media/4CC68B66-25DD-43E6-8AF1-97EF844D1BF9_zps4vbdnjvg.jpg.html][IMG]http://i1091.photobucket.com/albums/i397/mcartechine/4CC68B66-25DD-43E6-8AF1-97EF844D1BF9_zps4vbdnjvg.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

Then made dinner.

And drank some more.

The clocks rolled back. A Native American is rumored to have said: "only the us government would think you can cut off a foot from the top of the blanket, then sew it to the bottom of the blanket, to get a longer blanket. I tend to agree, but was happy to get that extra hour.

We caffeinated, packed our shit, and hit the mountain diner for breakfast. It was the nexus of the universe, and a 2 hour process.

Cheers, fellas. Nice sharing time.

These fish were on the front lines of the drought and this creek is still rebounding from some tough years. A good winter and a good snowpack have done a hell of lot to bring it back to life. Give them time, give them water, they'll make it work.



What they can be...
