Flexibility - Travel can create stressful situations. Plans will change on the fly or new ideas will be discovered. A good travel buddy can roll with the changes and see them as exciting opportunities. Especially when the river gets too high during a flash flood in North Carolina! Ha. Has anyone walked on the Appalachian trail before?? = ) I can now say that I did! Thanks, Owl!

Quiet Time - Whether you're standing at the edge of a cliff admiring the view or sitting around a campfire after a long day, there are times when you just want some peace and quiet. The company is nice, but knowing when to be silent makes it better. And there is always time to be alone to gather one's thoughts for that upcoming blog post! = )
Spontaneity - The chance to catch an arctic grayling in one of the few rivers in the U.S. Off the beaten path a bit, but this is your chance to do it. These are the opportunities that require split-second decisions and can create amazing memories. Thanks, Maynard for having the vision on this one! My highlight of the trip to Montana recently. And it was something that I hadn't planned on!

|Why is Montana always so much fun???|
|Maynard and Ernie...what more can be said?|
A final note: My last trip to the great state of Montana..."Land of the Big Brown Trout", was directed by "Maynard" and I must give him his very much earned props for giving us all a great trip! Thanks, buddy!
And check out this Arctic Grayling from Alaska that Maynard sent me...The dorsal fin is incredible!
Have a great week, everyone!
