Quick Update + Some Pics

bestdayFor the moment… just a ‘quick update’ for you. I will try to post a tech How To article later today, after I get caught up with my Aplus Computer Aid responsibilities.
[update: Today’s How To is now available, here: Firefox problem a result of malware?]

Late yesterday, I returned from a fishing trip to the high Sierras in California’s Stanislaus National Park area. My vacation outing was a fine success in every way .. but one: I caught a 12″ rainbow in the first 15 minutes on the lake, then nothing. Not another bite. People were catching fish, but the ‘action’ was slow – fishing season was just starting, and we were up pretty high.. 5,600 feet, or so. There was still some snow on the ground.
(But I did learn something: that old bumbersticker is right.)

I did snap a couple of pics before leaving. Unfortunately, on our last day, cold and clouds had moved in, so the photos are not sunny…

All in all, a very special weekend. In hindsight, I can’t believe I had let almost two decades pass since I’ve done something like this..

Unfortunately, it’s Monday, and time to get back to work.

    • Gaia,
      It was quite the change of pace, and scenery, and despite the lack of a catch, was a adventure I will cherish forever.

      I even survived Internet withdrawal (no cell signal out there).

    • Rick,
      Those were snapped on my smartphone, on an overcast morning.. not bad for something smaller than a deck of cards.

      The weekend was my first getaway from business in three years — and my first fishing outing in two decades or so. Fair to say, long overdue (and over too quickly)!
