    a mid summer road trip

    come hell or high water
    back story

    [report]the better 1/2 has a large tight polish catholic family
    The mrs. dad Rich passed away from a heart attack a couple winters ago
    i miss the guy, he had the ability to fix remodel build or engineer bout anything and a work ethic my slacker ass sadly aspires to.
    stoked i got to float him down the snake fore he left us
    Since then we've referred to her mom her sister and richs sister as the holy trinirty
    well the neices hs graduation wifes bday ment they were comin to town
    been buggin them to get the flaming g on with us

    went up early and floated a quick A before the showed up
    celebrated the mrs, b day with dinner and a red canyon sunset


    powers that be decided somes erdanghered snot nosed humped back minner needed a spring flood to better procreate
    not that i dont think it does wonders for the fishery and river health wwiw
    and not that the aspect of a 5 hour inlaw float being condensed by half was a bummers
    or the majority of the one manned trying to row kick or fish captain of their own craft crew being outgunned and absent
    8680 both bypass barrels bitches

    my bro came along despite the well the first couple days of high water aint never fished great warning and if ya gets em it'll probably be a heavily weighted big bobbers slut rig
    rented a raft and after a safety briefing for them or 2 or 10 for us set out

    got sum new sticks as the mrs. isn't happy with 10 1/2 foot counter balanced clunkers
    switch over to row sum rubbers or toss sum junk outta the back of the raft

    follow me and i'll eddy out before steamboat rapid if ya don't wanna run it
    and no anchoring or pullin over in this flow cleat it well knifes on the rod tube
    well next thing i know the wifes not eddying out up along shore oar outta the lock fuckin with the anchor in panic mode screaming
    thanfully she took the get the fuckin oar back in get your shit togather and row intructions and the 10 1/2 year old geriatric god 2 senior citizens whose life skills dont include swimmin and a boat full of most of the gear i own manged to
    straighten up and catch the wave bump off the largest boat eater in the river
    the mrs. and i help pull some people and a raft off that rock and helped out a ducky drama situation last time we floated high water
    so i'm thankin the karma dogs and sweets baby jeebus for the trips oh shit moment being somethin they'll laugh about
    after a bloody mary and reiteration of safeties briefin we rowed down to the small hole, took a small one over the bow
    for a bonus
    Toph and i decide to take their let us buy your b shuttle bonus offer
    woulda been better if the shuttle people didn't show up an hour early all sad puppy dog eyed and me being a sucker for not making another senior citizen sit in the heat for an hour
    ment way more shit than needed endin up in the boat
    took the slut rigs all off about 1 cast to score a fatty bow who wont be makin an e apperrance due to either bad fish handling poor rowing or photography probably the trinity of fail
    did gets a few brownies 2 eat
    not that the photography improved much

    found one of the river shrines

    left a shot o jag and the reninants of a luau lei for blessings received

    when the fishin gets tough
    the tough ask for a divine intervention or stronger brew

    fly retrieval skills were honed

    the fruitations of friends labors were consumed.

    topher wants to know why my god aint in the mag

    cause i don't pimp him or i hards nuffs he's worthy though
    hes gots a bad tumor growin on his eye gonna try n cut it off this week
    if ya got a spare goddy prayer or positive healins vibes toss it his way got the trinty of holiness and the rest of his fam hopin positives prognosis for hims i just savor the bonus years and every rodeos he's still ridin in
    1st rule of groover duty
    if your gonna shit in the woods scenicshitsmatter

    and when jj sings songs of riversboats listen

    ate well celebrated hard till it was sunday a day of rigthtousness
    slept well and dreamt of hogs my present level of bummery is gonna make hard to aquire

    awoke n went to morning mass

    loaded up

    scouted safely


    n sent er
    cheers

    gorped him up pretty good

    a few hours after we ran red creek my buddy sunk his boat
    think the high water toll was 5
    The holy trinity, the mrs. and my neice left for Italy
    19 years of matrimony other than goin hookers n blow route my bachelor games lame
    the copilot n i set off for that what we do and a summers road trip

    only real plan was hit steamboat springs and throw a fluff and buff on the 13 yo tupperwhare mothership hog
    hit the 40 for freedom and escaping the heat thru elevation

    well i aint in rome so

    to much water

    fished a bit

    drove over a pass the boat probably shouldn't

    seems i missed the social media green drake hot spot alert
    full campgrounds and pullouts
    tossed a few but split to look for poopfish
    scored the sweet midweek camp spot

    res was full never saw a damn poopfish and i knows theyre there and large

    got a few


    consumed

    hit the road

    hopin like hellthe high waters had subsided
    butts
    8680 wan't enuffs so showed up to +10k cfs and a chunks of boardwalk hatch headed to the colorado
    rolled in to another suset and shots
    camped out with the bros at guide camp above town in the airport district

    hit the res the next morn

    high puffers and a pollen sheen made findin willin poopfish tough



    hooked up w/the crew for an evening speed float
    float by drinking fountains

    and a meager rubber hatch

    water to cold more chasers and window shoppers than eaters but stuck a few




    heard from the trinity +2 and i ask that they ask the vatican cats to bless our summer pursuit of piscatorial pray

    YES living the life of the trophy husband. Good to hear Kessler is doing well and nice to see the shots of Topher and know he is not wasting away in AK.

    Hell yea! Looks like a great road trip.

    Gonna be up that way at the end of the month. Hoping the bite is on. Nevertheless I'll be relaxing along the river in the back of that one fine establishment. Always a good time.
