Staying In The Loop - Sunday Tippets, Damsel Style
TIPPET #1 - No, I'm not a spring chick, but, I can and will try my best to hang with the younger generation. I have a teenager at home!! That will make you older or younger, it just depends on how you play it. Sometimes, I must learn new things to keep up...aka: music. I was reminded of this from Clif at Lunker Hunt on Friday night...seems that he and Ivan at Yukon Goes Fishing, are doing a trial posting of sorts to see who is up and reading/watching vids on a Friday night! Well, I was this weekend. And I turned on thevid and enjoyed the beat and rhythm of the music. I don't always like Rap or G Funk, but there are a few songs that get me pumped up to go fishing! (I know, you didn't think that I needed that, huh?) And Ivan's video post really made me laugh...you will have to go over there too. I really don't know how he found this one...Both outstanding blogs.
TIPPET #2 - Can someone tell me why Subaru Outbacks seem to come with a common attachment...errr...accessory? A BIKE RACK!! No kidding. At least around here in Utah, they are the main ride for the cyclists to get to their starting point. The parking lot at the bus stop in the canyon today had more Outbacks then any other model of car...So, I'm thinking that this could be the #1 "outdoor enthusiast" vehicle on the road. Am I right?
More Subaru Outbacks @ Solitude...wishin' I was skiin' again! Oh, forget that.
TIPPET #3 - If you are patient enough, the Spring run-off will eventually end...before the next snow. Ha. We found the last bit of snow in the mountains today. The creek running alongside the canyon road was still rushing pretty good. But, it looks like there is an end in sight. : ) Maybe before August!
Now, I usually just go up the Big Cottonwood Canyon to ski during the winter...but, today, my son and I ventured up to Silver Lake and found a few interesting spots to fish in the creek that I had never noticed before...So, once things settle in a few weeks, I'm back to find a brookie or two! It is quite picturesque and how I love pines!! And it is only 15 min. from the hacienda...off work at 3:30 ...hmmm.
TIPPET #4 - The most important one today...Look over yonder on the top right hand corner of my sidebar...There is a new contest that my buddy Will, from The RiparianCorridor has posted. And he has a terrific idea for everyone to get involved with cleanup in their own neighborhoods and waterways...Let's haul some trash and get involved in a good cause! There are also a couple of great prizes. So, give it a look! I have been involved with a Clean and Cast program. Picking up a bit of trash in the morning definitely gives you the Zen for a better fishing day afterwards!
