Re: Any Past/Present Pipe Smokers/Collectors?
It's amazing how being chilled to the bone can inspire someone to threaten a man with "walking home..." My fly-fishing cronies have long since learned to indulge my impulse/need of "seeing what's just around the next bend in the river." Now, it's not because of their generous nature, mind you. It's due mostly because of the fact that we almost always take the ol' "Fish Truck"-- my 1998 Chevy Tahoe 4X4. Plenty of room for gear, decent gas mileage for a truck of that size, and good heaters, front and rear! That truck has seen its fair share of sand and muck over the years.
As for the 11,000 feet accomplishment? I'm willing to bet that I was in a 747 the last time I was anywhere near that mark!
By the way, nice fish!!!
