Off to Colorado, wish us luck!
Well we got most everything packed in the trailer last night and will be off as soon as the boss turns his head ;-).
Our elk season starts on Wed. 11/14 and we (Dennis, Brian and I) each have either sex tags. We will be meeting up with my brother and dad who also have tags. My brother and I also have bear tags (just in case).
Everything was going great until my brother called last night and told me he saw a good bunch of elk while scouting. He stopped counting when he got to 75 head. He said there were 5 shootable bulls and one dandy! BUT, knowing how elk are, they could be in Utah by now!
We'll try to keep you all updated, maybe my new 338AM will start earning its keep?
We plan on starting tonight and getting as far as Denver, then staying there Saturday night so we can drive through the mountains in the daylight. Brian (Dennis' son) has never been out west, so we want him to get the full effect. Mapquest says, 22hours and 36minutes (1540+miles). With the price of diesel, I may be selling equipment on the way back ;-)
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
