Seems there are a lot of us that love this river. Any interest in a gathering/campout and a couple days of doing whatever it is we wish to do. Not like the ROR, maybe not even open to the world. But a few of us old river guys burning some dead meat and fishing our way on the Fork?

I should be healed up enough in a couple weeks. If you are interested, PM me.

Here's the situation:

#1- Where I would like to camp is accessible only by boat and will handle maybe 6-8 people. I have a couple places down the river I have permission to camp. But I need clearance to have a group camp.
#2- I am pretty well beat to shite right now. May be late August before I am physically able to handle it.
#3- I have no way of deciding who goes and who doesn't. Not my job, not my desire. I won't get into that. But if it is a crowd, I suggest just staying at Long Branch and working from there. Age or experience is not a factor. Attitude is. I have no desire to share a camp with an idiot. ")
#4- In retrospect, I think this would best be handled via email or pm. And it probably should have been that way from the get go.

Gotta tell my backstrap story. So I went on that big hifalooooootin trip to Kodiak, Alaska, and got me a young, tender Sitka Blacktail deer - supposed to be some of the best meat you ever tasted. I paid a few zillion $$$ to go on this trip and a few more to carry the meat home with me freeze dried. So I got stuck about 3 times trying to fly home on those friggin' kites with props they use up there, and it took 2 days to get back home. The meat had thawed before I even hit Seattle.

I had already given away all my TN deer meat (5 or 6 deer for the season). I paid about a zillion $$$ to bring home rancid meat. Even the chow-trained coyotes behind my house wouldn't sniff the stuff. Gettin' used to blony samiches.

Shouolda let Zumbie cook it all up. As far as eating it, it is pretty good but not in the class with caribou.

Spoke with one of my landowners a few minutes ago. To say he was not delighted with the prospect of a big campout would be an understatement. In fact, quote, he said, "You can camp. You and a friend can camp. Any more than two people, better be a freakin boat wreck."

So that is what we are looking at.

LOL!

I'm just glad mine has a poling platform. Last two times I've been on the river, there has been some dingleberry in a white B-60 Riverhawk who has been firing up his outboard and busting up through the runs at low water - right past the crowds of waders.

It would not be good to have a boat that could be easily confused with that one, because eventually someone's going to try to correct that behavior.

Hey having a platform is good and a curse at the same time. To be confused with a lawyer makes me wonder if having one is a good idea,,, then again some of the things people ask about it are funny. I got asked, in a very hillbilly town, "just how fast will that boat run with that racing fin on it". I ended up telling them it was a table for me to cut my lunch samiches in half on. Then had a guy tell me that thing I had to keep my motor in the shade was a great idea.
