Its been a long time since I’ve written on the blog. My attention has been drawn to both starting up a new business and as a result of doing manual labor again (residential remodeling), working to gain back an improved level of fitness. I chose to get back on the mountain bike and so glad that I did. I’ve lost twenty pounds, my blood pressure is back down to when I was in my twenties and I have much more energy. My blood pressure had not been good and my PCP had been trying for a few years to get me on meds. I told him that I had a different strategy. My upland hunting and fly fishing has taken a back seat since June, but this is only a hiatus of sorts. I am looking forward to carrying my 2 weight here and there on the fat bike this winter and combining the two. I hope you all are well.
Mountain biking is great fun and a fabulous way to stay in shape or to get fit. Fat bikes take this to a whole new level of fun. The grin and smile factor is several levels of magnitude greater.
Steelhead and lake run brown time is getting closer and closer. A mere 3 weeks away in all likelihood and I’m starting to have dreams of giant salmonids taking my fly, line, pole and me holding tight screaming into the icey depths.
Backing delight. My Tibor is well greased with high temp lube sourced from a NASA provider and reported to withstand re-entry temperatures.
I’m told this will prevent smoking and the distraction that goes along with it. Let’s hope so…this pilgrim will need all of his attention on the game.
There is much beauty in the world. One of those things is shared music. Music is an amazing thing and adds much to our existence on this earth. The folks that put this together are genius. I don’t know about you, but it draws something fundamental from within me.
