We hit a few creeks this morning, and it was awesome! But, after catching a fat brookie, I was bored, and started wading and playing with rocks and sand in the creek (looking for gold, don't cha know!). Bad idea. I didn't know I was hypothermic ... Read more
I' ve been feeling SO frazzled and busy this week, that this weekend is a needed break. Our plans include stream fishing tomorrow, helping a friend move on Sunday, and working around the house Sunday. Sounds downright leisurely to me!... Read more

I'm Finding Time!
