Fishing Trip #1 of 2006

 

Today was great! We drove 2 hours to Palomar Mountain State Park and fished in Doane Pond. I caught 4, but released 2. Mindi kept one of hers, which is why I am holding 3 in the picture.

A really nice gentleman saw me struggling with casting, so he took the time to teach me how to do it, and I was able to finally cast successfully! This was, after all, my first time fishing in a place where I actually had to cast. The last time was in a boat, and that requires a different kind of casting (where you don’t hurt the other people in the boat!).

Great day, great fellowship. 🙂 I love fishing! Posted by Picasa

Camping Summary…

Great weekend! Perfect weather, great company, awesome experience.

I rode a dirt bike for the first time–loved it (I “need” one, LOL)…I shot my first gun (I believe it was a .22)…we burned 4 Christmas trees, and that was my first experience doing that as well. It was so great!

Got back just in time to see the last 40 minutes of Grey’s Anatomy–so good. Exhausted, but feeling rested at the same time. This weekend was just what I needed!

Pictures soon–have to locate my camera. I think it’s in one of the (four white) trucks we took this weekend.

More to come!

We’re Off!

Woo hoo! We’re leaving today for a weekend of camping, dirt-bike riding, target shooting, burning Christmas trees, etc…the only thing we won’t be doing is fishing–because we’ll be in the desert. 🙂

Yeah, it’s kind of a “Red Neck Weekend” I suppose…:)

Have a great weekend!

Great Weekend in NorCal…

Mindi and I had a great weekend in NorCal–though it was very rapid-paced and a great deal of driving was involved. Unbeliveably, I did not take a single picture this weekend! My cousin took some when we went fishing on Saturday morning, but other than that, no photos. We drove at least 1000 miles this weekend–probably more like 1200. It was great though! It’s hard to be bored when Mindi is around. 🙂

I’m now officially moved in–I have my bed, my dresser…for the first time in four years I feel like I have a home. It’s such a great feeling! I hooked up my wireless Internet today, so I have Internet on my computer again.

Weird weather here–definitely had green clouds today, which made me nervous. I was not really looking forward to a tornado. More green clouds are in the sky right now! Where do I live?

Busy week ahead, but it’s all good.
