Patrick: I'm not quit living in the middle of nowhere, but Pinedale is pretty small, maybe 1600 people and I'm surrounded by water, lots of fishing to explore.

I got three new books for Christmas that I'm reading simultaneously. "To Build A Fire" is a collection of short stories by Jack London. I'm also reading "Standing in a River Waving a Stick" by Gierach, and "Incredible Fishing Stories."

Patrick: Not much in the way of jobs here, except for the oil/gas companies and that has down sized quite a bit since the natural gas price has dropped, basically it is production and vitually no drilling, doesn't bother me any as I'm retired, but just wanted to throw that out there. This is a hunting/fishing/hiking/horse riding paradise with the Wind and Wyoming ranges so close to town, lots of public land. We have the New Fork river flowing right through town, just to the west is the Green river, further west is the Hoback, then flowing through Jackson is the Snake river and there are numerous small feeder streams feeding the bigger water and I read that there is an estimated 800 lakes in the Winds alone. Near town you have Soda lake, Boulder lake, Meadow lake, Half Moon lake, Willow lake, etc.

Last week I finished reading "Snake River Fly Fishing--through the eyes of an angler" by Boots Allen. Very interesting reading and it gave me a much better understanding of where the public access points are and how to approach the river during the different seasons.

This week I'm reading a book titled "Trout Lessons" by Ed Engle a fly fishing guide out of Colorado. I've just started this book, but so far it looks to be a very well written book.

I'm working on several readings this month. Every day I read one poem each from Longfellow, Frost, and Whitman, as well as one chapter of Proverbs. I'm finding Frost insufferable. I've never got into poetry (except for memorizing the "Jaberwocky"), and I thought this would make a nice break from the historical novels I usually read.
