  1. Returned from Denver/RMNP yesterday..... Spent 3 days 2 nights backpacking in the Never Summer Mountains with my daughter and had a wonderful time......We camped at 10,700 and 10,600 feet, and there was still lots of snow at that elevation. From the Dutch Town camp we watched 15 sheep over one evening and one morning on the sheer cliffs above the camp. Watched a lamb nurse, really cute, good stuff. Saw many elk, although not a ton from our camps.... and a couple moose..... "highlight" was having a juvenile cougar come through our Dutch Town Camp, leaving tracks 15 feet from the tent........ I $hit you not......We did a couple of day hikes also..... one into Sky Pond, and the Loch is on the way in..... it was beautiful and windless, and the picture came out great. Pics from Sky Pond and Glass Lake were beautiful, but the wind had picked up and you didn't get the reflection like a little lower.....On the hike past the Lake of Glass to Sky Pond, there's a waterfall to climb, and with the snowpack from the winter, it was plenty wet...... Pics are at our Dutch Town Camp, Skeleton Creek Basin, and The Loch........... The Never Summer Mountains were a little tough. 30 - 32F at night, and thunderstorms with some hail 2 - 3 times a day. It was a week of great adventure with one of my best friends......... I will cherish it until the day I can't hike any more....... We also found some great craft beer! If you're ever in Denver, be sure to find Cerebral Brewing.......... Goooooooooood Stuff. The beer at Denver Beer Co. was also good, but the beer at Cerebral was a cut above the 6 or 7 places we visited.......https://cerebralbrewing.com/
  2. What Vesey "did" to Nashville was not cool ...... but it's also not unheard of. Even our beloved Jim Kelly wasn't crazy about Buffalo https://www.thesportster.com/entertainment/top-15-athletes-that-refused-to-play-for-the-team-that-drafted-them/ I hope (and expect) for Vesey to play one year here and then become a UFA and disappear........ hopefully we can get something more than a 3rd round pick at the deadline. More importantly I hope he doesn't infect "the room". .
  3. I thought Brett Murray played a pretty good scrimmage. He had at least 5 quality chances but only cashed in on one(I think). He's a pretty big dude (6-4) and protected the puck well..... seemed to have good vision and make good decisions,........ with a little puck luck yesterday he'd be a guy we'd be talking about......... I hope to see him with the Amerks... Anybody else make any observations on Murray? One other observation from yesterday...... Krueger damn near walked into the womens restroom! Looked around sheepishly and laughed.........
  4. I wonder if there will be tickets for the 3v3 available through scalpers on Washington St.?
  5. Made a trip to Erie (Catt) yesterday for 3 Walleyes. Lots of marks, but a tough bite for me. Nice day to be out on the lake though. (That's what all bad fishermen say.)
  6. I noticed a small trailer parked at East Fork..... musta been you. Tommy said you guys had a decent day.
  7. We have.... it's gorgeous. This BP trip is into the West side of the park and into the Never Summer Range, and I've never been into that section of the park. When I looked the other day, there was still snow...... Here's a pic from 14 years ago near the Boulderfield, on the way towards Longs Peak. My Brother with my 2 daughters. The girls look a little different now. The one in the green will be with me this trip.
  8. I've been lucky enough to get there for the last 4 or 5 years and last year Taro gifted me tickets (thank you Sir)...... Well, when they held the event at the "Keybank" Center and charged for tickets they never had this issue........... It was great fun..... sit where you want..... We'd sit behind a goalie for a bit.... then change to center ice...... then wherever...... big fun........ then off to Thin Man!
  9. Looks like the Tournament tickets are available to STH but not the general public...... that sucks...........
  10. one nice king (17 lbs), three shaker kings, and a laker today out of Sandy......... tough day...... we never marked much and most of our action was in 80 - 120. Planning a backpacking adventure in Rocky Mountain NP for early-mid July. I'm not getting any younger, and it sure feels like I'm getting to the end of this kind of stuff. Back, shoulder, knees....... every thing aches, and more than that is gonna ache. We'll be there a little over a week, and are backcountry camping 2 nights...... and dayhiking the rest of the time. Probably just me and one of my daughters. We did this in the neighborhood of 15 years ago, and I thought it would be cool to do it again...... But this trip, I'm sure we'll find some craft beer in our "down time".....
  11. Not a ton, and not for the last week...... Ontario maybe 6 times. The king fishing has been very good out of Sandy. I'm hoping to fish with my daughter tomorrow ...... She wants to fish for kings locally (Sandy). I'd like to fish for perch/walleyes out of the Catt...... Odds are we'll be in Ontario.
  12. Climate change........... join us in this decade, will you?
  13. Isn’t it possible that part of the “problem” with ROR was his inability to tolerate the mediocre effort by the most skilled player on the team? Coasting off the ice….. pouting behavior when things don’t go 9’s way.... Jack is exceptionally skilled, but I don’t think his effort on the ice is pedal to the floor all the time. We expected ROR to be a leader…. some personality types can’t be led by peers. When that person is the face of the franchise, it’s a problem. I don’t believe for a minute that ownership wanted ROR gone for off ice issues………. Ownership didn’t want him gone. Rather than name names, and tear down, ROR used the “love of the game” statement. He couldn’t lead this team…. Couldn’t lead the face of the franchise. Too much locker room drama, and he wanted out of that. Too little time in his career….. lemme out. At this point, the franchise is undeniably tied to Jack. It’s no wonder that the Sabres new head coach is touted as a “premier” motivator and a unifying force in the locker room….. let’s hope so This is just observation and speculation on my part….. Just MHO. Said about Krueger………. “I can’t say enough good things about him,” said European defenseman Christian Ehrhoff. “He is focused on keeping everyone’s confidence up and everybody’s head right, believing in yourself and the group. We’ve come together as a team.”
