...or the "I'm Too Old To Give A Damn" tour, ah to be young again and the ravages of the road not taking a toll on your body.

410 miles, 3 states, 2 rivers, crappy food, fleabag motels, stale beer and perverted smallies.

While talking to Blake Friday we hatched a plan to hit a smallie river...opting for Saturday. Mudpuppy, River Man and I hit the New Saturday morning with the smallies cooperating immediately...pretty much an awesome day, maybe even perverted.

Mudpuppy had to return to Hickory, while River Man twisted my arm to smack more smallies on Sunday

More of the same on Sunday, maybe not quiet as intense but awesome none-the-less. I can now say that I have floated a smallie river in the dark :D While loading up in the dark, had a bear huffing at us up on the bank above the takeout :o

Good weekend :D

Still racing but got out with TX and 10wts chasing muskie some through the week. We have had some follows but I haven't hooked up. My best chance was the first follow I had, I just stopped stripping and froze :oops: . It wont happen again.
