    replied to Camping vehicle out west
    As a footnote, I should add that 99% of the time, in the summer, a vehicle with good ground clearance is probably more useful than 4-wheel drive. The western states can do wonders with their dirt and gravel roads - some gravel roads in eastern Colorado are safely traveled at 60 mph. I assume that...

    The $95 a day is steep, but considering it's home and ride, not too bad and the camper equipment sounds great! What they don't have you can rent at REI in most western towns. I looked into renting one of those camper/rv rentals and did not think the rate too bad until the fine print said something...

    So there are some of you who after seeing the cheerleader three times in a row (12 or 18 times for some of us) and can then immediately sit back and grumble about a change ............ You guys need to get your pulse checked. .................. First, as pointed out the board management and technicians...

    But where do I put my flask? Have you looked outside today - I ain't going anywhere without a flask! 8- ) That said, it will be interesting
    to hear user reports on this concept. I could see it being handy in the rhodo tunnels. --jk--

  • NC update: We are looking at a significant storm. All the weather reports are all excited, but this morning NPR said "it is very reasonable to expect double digit snowfall from this storm". That would pretty much focus on the band from the SC/NC state line (the escarpment) through Ashville/Burnsville...

    replied to Moving to Colorado
    I used to live just north of Highlands Ranch (when it was till a ranch) and east of Deer Creek Canyon. Recommend you look up some of the Denver metro area TU chapters. And a cautionary statement, Fishing alone in CO is not like fishing alone in GA or NC. There are more things to go wrong, more area...

    The Big Question:

    The Big Question is actually, "does more stuff equal more fish?". Of course we all know it's "the right stuff" but point being, take what you need for a given fishing experience. I used a fanny pack for salt fishing for years (spin & bait -...

    NC Fishing

    First thing to look at is of course the weather ....... that time of year can almost shirt sleeves or freeze your butt-ons off. As for where, someone mentioned the Davidson and the North Mills and those all work, but where you will be is what I call the great divide, the waters...

    Cody

    I don't have a lot of experience in Cody area, but everywhere around is bear country - grizzlies and black bears. Common sense goes a long way. But one thing I will recommend is spending a half day at the Cody Museum. A half day will let you see maybe 1/4 of there exhibits. Only...

    She got the job because she has worked hard many years for TU and is seasoned in all aspects of managing that bunch!

    " .. has elected Kathy Breithaupt as the chairwoman of the Council. Not because she is a woman or may be minority in the trout community,...

  • What If?

    What if you took the Feds totally out of the picture for fisheries management in GA? Don't forget the state legislature provides much of funding for wildlife and I have never seen any real interest on their part in managing trout. They typically are bass fisherman (some do...

    Recommendations: Trout Redfish

    I recommend a light coat of cornmeal and pepper and fry the trout. Redfish are great grilled! Don't put a lot of stuff on them - some lime juice, a little pepper and one the grill!

  • Credit or Cash?

    Sorry to hear about this, and you have to admit, having the house blow away in the storm is a pretty valid excuse for the rental company. However, I would have insisted on a refund, not a credit. Will the rental company be in operation in five years? How is their record...
