Just finished a full month of "being out there" with Buffalobob. Last day of the season was yesterday. Got home at 3pm this afternoon. BB will take 3 or 4 days to get back to DC. While I headed south from the North Fork of the Salmon to Blackfoot (took from 1000 to 1500 to make the drive) BB headed north over the divide to Missoula MT and maybe Orofino ID to visit Nightforce. I have a bunch to post. I had the secondary role of spotter and photographer (wished I'd have kept a journal) a whole month is hard to remember. I'll post a bit of color and Jim will provide his side of the story. Am tired. Lost 18 pounds on the trip. Haven't felt better in years. Really hated to leave the place. It was just getting good. Here's both ends of the trip. Ya just gotta love Idaho! Here's my welcome to Colson Creek. I had just made the first turn off of the North Fork road and had to hit the brakes to keep from running over them. One month later on the way out here's the committee saying "See ya, Pilgrim. More to come. It was an interesting experience.
