I always see the mountains first... knowing that Wallowa lake is just right there and the fond memories of fishing long ago, trolling for Blueback with a great uncle who seemed to have no other goal in life than to entertain great nephews with fishing all day , driving through the pastures in his scout , shooting at the ground squirrels, stories without end and a little bit of a grin that always let you know when the tall tale was starting. The huge dog called Bear that looked like one who was really a really large untrimmed poodle, my Great Aunt happy bottom cooking a continuous stream of baked blueback, real sour dough biscuits, black cap jam and other stuff, all from the garden she defended from the deer with a 22. Venison from the garden too.
The lake so cold and clear it was always tough to get in for the first time to swim .
We always took home a trunk load of frozen blueback to be smoked by the dozens and eaten like smoked candy bars as they got done.
Of course the carbon needed to be blown out again by the time we got back to the Anatone flats .

Thank you.. I could read that all day

Heh heh... memories. I think dads were the same back then. My dad "blowing the carbon" out of our '60 Mercury across Nevada, stuck the speedo over 120. I think about it now... on Nylon tires, probably lucky we are still alive! (Nevada had no speed limits aside from towns).

Got2Moto you're on the list.

I just realized you must be who I got my Dacre Moose decals from. I was asked by someone a while back where I got them and couldn't remember. There's some other good stuff in your line up as well.

Just in case anyone wants to check it out here's the link: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=371160
