    I stopped by your place on the way home and took a photo which is in my album of the trip.

    Darby is beautiful but man it is a long way up there. I'd vote for Sipapu or Lake City again. Great job to everybody up there though.
    My hangovers get worse the farther North I go! Thanks to whoever turned my room key in Friday night, still not sure how I got in!
    Thanks Putts, Shady Rascal and everybody else!

    I gave someone a ride to their room with my pickup on Friday night, don't remember who it was but he was in no pain whatsoever. :D

    Darby would be great for a second time. The second Rocky Mountain Adventure Rally is set for August 4-7 at Sipapu New Mexico

    As long as I don't have to do shit next time, I wou7ldn't mind it being close ...

    ... but I do think WestFest should remain as much an adventure as possible.

    Meaning I think someone else should do it somewhere else.

    OTOH, I thought the spot in Darby was perfect for the event, and I'd love to do it again there ...

    ... in about 4 years or so.




    By that time I'd be ready to help again.





    Also, I think someone had it in mind to do the next WestFest in NM I think ...

    :scratch

    ... can't remember who it was ... but someone will anti-up, I'm sure.

    I remember the stumbling between the fairground and the Budget Motel. I just don't remember the leaving the fairgrounds or opening the door to the room! Hopefully I didn't make a scene at either end. I was a little shocked the next day when a knock on the door was opened to reveal someone with my key in hand!

    That, I believe, is evidence of a perfectly successful night.

    Are you sh*ttting me? The snow hasn't even melted by the end of July up there. Then there's the mosquitoes. Oh, and wrong side of the Mississippi. Um, but some great fly fishing! Guess I'll just have to bring my snowshoes along....:lol3

    I'm headed out next week for a ride to Yaak, MT. I think it's kind of like Darby, but further away and much more remote - as in if you want to communticate with anyone, it's dial-up or satellite.
    Anyway, I'm going because I've never been there. Supposed to be great fishing. Will report if I make it back.:muutt
