That is awesome Tate. Roche Harbor is one of my favorite places ever, used to vacation there every summer as a kid. Glad you enjoyed your vacation with the family!

No good pictures, so no proof, but we had lunch and a couple bloody Mary's at the Madrona Bar & Grill, then had our boat "moved" by the harbor master out to a floating dock. apparently we parked in HIS spot: http://www.charterworld.com/?sub=yacht-charter&charter=after-eight-2109
and he was none too pleased, lol.

Serpentine belt, idler pulley and a starter hampered my trip a bit, but we made it through it.

You know that I am not too far away from Wash Away don't you? I didn't get a call for help so I would guess not.

Did you get the clams out on the mud flats chasing lines, or just buy them?

Well, no pics here.  Each Thanksgiving for the past few years we have been re-living the childhood experience of camping with the extended family.  This year with the immenent threat of rain, we bagged the state park and had it at our weekend place.  Still took the RV there so my sister and her family had a place to sleep.  Wired the shop for a 4 wire 220 so we could power it.

Danged if everytime we tried to build a fire if it didn't start raining.

Last week, I arrived to find a big cedar tree blown down over the drive way.  Got in with the chainsaw and hacked it all up only to discover a few days later that there must have been a poison sumac in that downed mess.  Now itching like crazy on my arms with a nice rash to go with it.
Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

Oh ouch, poison vines are not good, we have the poison ivy up here. Burn the stuff and take a whiff or two of smoke and bad things happen. Didn't you tell me that with enough gas anything will burn?

I had a pretty good idea of your general area, so believe me, if I couldn't figure out the starter you'd have been called up for active service! Thanks for the reminder Bob. hope your thanksgiving was great!

Roger that.  I got it to burn but I don't like sitting in the cold rain.

I've never encountered poison sumac.  I always look out for PI and PO and know better.  Sumac is more like a small tree and I never gave much thought to it.  Will know better next time.  Just thank the Lord I didn't immediately go pee in the woods and handle the johnson.....

Thanks all. Ken yes those are lights traditionally used for Christmas.   Hard for most people to understand but I don't celebrate Christmas. Probably start some arguments here but suffice to say I'm not catholic. If you research the origins of Christmas it dates to the 4th century AD when the Catholics were trying to convert Romans and they inserted the holiday on top of the Romans Saturnalia holiday. Protestants didn't adopt until the 1800s and then it was only to compete for church goers during the holidays when they wanted a party too.

Christ was born in August or September as far as historical records can tell. Flocks are not in the field in December. As we are only commanded to celebrate His death in Corinthians. That was what provided salvation. No where are we commanded to celebrate His birth.

I use them year round for camp illumination though and get a smokin deal in replacements each year about this time

Yeah. And you can get them for like $1 on sale. I've lusted after rope LEDs but when I can replace the entire set up every 3 years for $5. It's hard to spend the money.

Congrats Tate!  Great service and good sales people never go out of style and are worth their weight in gold. Made it to red river nm today. 8800 ft elevation and 55 degrees. I'm starving for oxygen. Was at 4000 ft this morning and went for a run. Doubt I'll run tomorrow. I get light headed just standing up here! Home for me is 164 ft above sea level

Nice score Nate. Sure you will find something for it.

Heard an inhaler can help some at those altitudes. No personal experiance over 10k, but no issues either.

We just came back from a quick 2 day trip to Wrights lake and Ice House (gateway to the rubicon)

Kids died on the way home but I caught a couple nice rainbows at Ice House. (on the dam over my right brim)

Oh and that shelf works great!!

That reminds me of fishing off the dike at Fire Mountain scout camp. We ran into some rather large river carp that wanted to nibble on our toes while floating. guess there were lots of people dropping food. no pics, but we ran into thunder and lightning storm on the water. Jumped out and headed up into some random back yard, where we were berated for trespassing. I explained their property wasn't my first choice but with the lightning less than a mile off, I wasn't chancing my families safety. They didn't care much for excuses and told me to get lost rather than give me an address I could use to GPS my position and make my way back to the truck. I left them with some choice words and brought my family to the side of the road, then hiked 2.5miles in water socks back to the Dmax. Rough outing, bad weather planning, idiot people, so we did it again two days later with a 100% success rate to erase that event.
