    I go hunting and flyfishing. In order to do those things I am camping. I do not intentionally go JUST CAMPING. I am flyfishing all over mostly the CA sierra's. I do a lot of still water flyfishing. I flyfish davis lake, pyramid lake, eagle lake and a few doze others. I mostly camp lake side right next to the water. It is pretty freakin awesome being parked next to the lake 10 feet away. Bald Eagles, Ospreys, Coyotes, Beaves, rainbow trout rising a foot from shore,,,,it is all pretty sweet. I use a wheelchair and stillwater flyfish from a kayak. My new rig for doing this is a 2010 GMC Savana Van AWD. I can slide my kayak in, I built a platform bed with a comfy memory foam mattress. It is my lake front property on wheels. Whithout my rig I can not do these things. Here's some pics of my rig where I camp at davis Lake.

    Just passed through the Norfork area this morning... The weather is cool now... My truck was covered with sleet around 11:00 am and I was told that a little snow was seen after I left. The trip was work related so I didn't even get a chance to drift some flies. So if it is cool weather you are waiting for... now is the time. You will even have your choice of camping spots!

    The earliest I'll be able to get back up there will be March...my next week off. I've been missing it up there a lot, lately. My friend sent me some pics of a float trip on the Mulberry River...I'm starting to get the itch again...


    By the way, to keep the post going, I just got back from a trip to the Smoky Mountains last month. Camped for 4 nights in the park at Elkmont and backpacked on the AT for a couple of days...perfect time of year!

    Sadly, I was only able to squeeze in one trip this year to Mt. Diablo, CA. Not a bad spot! It was our fisrt trip in the new(ish) truck! There was lots of hiking around our site, and not too many people on our side of the mountain. the trip to the peak was pretty cool as well, especially with the museum at the top about the history of the mountain and surrounding area. With any luck we'll get a few trips in next summer in Mt. Charelston by Las Vegas, NV. Lookin forward to heading back to my ol' stompin grounds!
