Heres some pics from some high country, backpacking fishing trips this year in the Big Horn Mountain range, it's our "home' range so we get up there quite a bit.

The boy in the front isn't mine (good kid, I would take him) but the rest are, taking a breather at 9800ft. It was an easy 7 miles into the lakes we were going to from the trailhead, mostly uphill and took us about 2.5 hours to get in.

My daughter and I tented up together on this trip, the boys had taken off to another lake about 2 miles away. That suited us fine and we had the whole lake to ourselves for some high quality flyfishing and father/daughter time. Here she is cleaning and cooking our fish.

Here's my daughter with an amazing find, it's funny how she finds them everywhere we go :) Someday one is going to show up in National Geographics Magazine

Here's the lake my daughter and I fished, she took this picture early in the morning before the several moose that live there had moved into cover for the day. You can see a nice bull on the left across the rocks. It's a nice lake for fishing with a creek that feeds it and drops out steep were it leaves.

Another trip, but a little too early, what looks like a snow field in the background is actually the frozen lake :) a little tough for dry fly fishing LOL So we dropped down a couple thousand feet for some open water.


Just some fun pics (not very good quality) that aren't meant as a SHTF training manual :)

Merry Christmas to you and yours

Cold weather has a charm all its own. Just something about the clean air and solitude.

Merry Christmas

Terror has nothing to do with it andy. Just a happy family enjoying themselves in the wilderness. Thats something that you, andy, are terrified of doing.

Teuf, looks like some good times camping in some real beautiful areas. Gunkid, you couldn't scare a worm on a fish hook. Boy are you dumb!

Outstanding Teuf. If I went there I might not want to come back! Poor gunkid, he just can't hack it. Hack it at home, hack it in the field. About the only thing he can hack is being a bore on the net.

Thanks folks, the wife an I really enjoy our kids and consider ourselves very fortunate, it bums me out at times thinking about them taking off to the winds.

Big talk out of JD, so does that mean we are on for the 100 miler this spring? I'm sure you have the "concept" of a 100 mile backpacking trip firmly in place and have done it dozens of times in your mind LOL

I'm fine with my 70 lbs and your 50 lbs and I'm fine with doing it in CO as long as it's in the backcountry.

Teuf,

How about teh part of the Continential Divide Trail that runs down between Pagosa Springs and Durango? or how about the last 100 miles of the Colorado Trail leading into it's terminus in Durango???

It don't matter to me as long as I'm not rubbing elbows with a bunch of tourist the whole way, the wilder the country the better IMO. I'm sure JD will want to be on as well marked and established trails as he can since the dumbfuck isn't even sure what mountain range he is in. He would be totally fucked in the wild trackless country.

Teuf,
