Two states, same river, one day

One of the advantages of being unattached is the opportunity to set my own schedule. A side-effect is that I don't always plan really well, so Friday morning when I woke up and decided to go fishing, I ended up going north on highway 99 unsure of where I'd end up.

In another generation it will be my great-grandkids learning about the conquest of death.

Critters from Down Under

A couple of weeks ago, I somehow managed to find myself in Australia. As an incurable outdoors enthusiast, I wanted to get a taste of outdoor experiences Down Under. Australia is such a huge and diverse country, it is impossible to see it all in a short time.
