The city that never sleeps, but New York does fly-fish

Mom's ashes

When I think of a vacation, I naturally think of going right back to the same place I have always gone for vacations, Hermit Valley at the top of Ebbetts Pass.

That won't happen in this case, however, because my secret fishing hole is so difficult to get to almost no one is crazy enough to go back.

Warranties on outdoor gear

Sometimes no matter how hard you try, things go wrong afield and one of your favorite pieces of gear malfunctions. I recall once as we were trekking across the old Immigrant Road that runs from Highway 4 in Hermit Valley to Deer Valley off of Highway 88.

Since the friends that visit during the summer are not paying clients, I can afford certain liberties as I shuttle them around the island under the guise of providing an "authentic" experience.
