Hey!

It looks like your taste in beer has improved!

It really doesn't count when you're back at the trucks.  We were drinking Keystone Light way out in BFE! ;)  That was 5 years ago & I'm still talking about it, Sean!  Last time up at Strawberry, Steven & I got lost, arrived back at the truck in the dark.  I didn't realize how DARK it gets in the woods.  No moon, no street lights :smirk:,  you can't even see your hand in front of your face.

Beautiful Pictures too! :thumbsup:  You guys know how to do it up!

 

Sean, I think there's a story behind that lake!

P.S.   My Kegorator just blew up.  I had to pickup another Craigslist special for $50.  It's bigger & better than my last one.  I wanted to just swap out the top collar & be done fast & furious.  But they no longer make my old chest freezer.  I was trolling Craigslist for over 1 month with no luck. So I pulled the plug on this hoarder's special.  New dimensions.............. so I had to build a new collar.  Picked 2x6 Pine instead of the fancy White Oak.  They were moving and didn't want to cart it around........................ so I picked it up cheap! :goofy:  Now I need to fill it up with Homebrew!  

Nothing like a cheap hobby that tastes good! :devil:

I'm sorry.  I've slowed down a lot in my old age.  My son takes TLC of me out on the trail. :thumbsup:  If I could just get him to concentrate on that Yamaha, it'd be done by now.  Damn chicks!

It took me a week to finish that Kegorator.  It's the German in me, can't sit still.

I caught a 4 lb small mouth bass in that very spot, standing on the right bank.  I was sure the guards would show up & drag me up to the prison! :facepalm:
