Can you say horrible drive? Man, my drive to Boise, Idaho for the Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo was hell. A high wind snowstorm ripped across Idaho and added three hours to my normally six hour drive Thursday. I could hardly see for hours. The roads were treacherous. I saw some hellacious accidents. It was rough. Thankfully after driving all day I arrived in Boise at 6 PM. I was so stressed and tired that I had a salad and one beer with my friend and show organizer Erik Moncada then retired to fellow speaker Pete Erickson’s house for the night.
The show itself was great. Pete, Phil Rowley and I did numerous presentations throughout the weekend. I introduced a new PowerPoint Show, “Trout Bumming the Lakes in and Around Yellowstone” that was a big hit. I’ll be doing this many times in years to come. And all presentations both in the theaters and on the casting ponds were well attended.
Today’s my usual Monday – unpack and repack. It’s off to the East Coast early Wednesday morning. This weekend is the Marlborough, MA Fly Fishing Show. I hope to see all my New Englander friends. Be sure and stop by my table to say hi and catch one of my presentations. I’ll post my presentation schedule later this week.
Before and after the show I’ll be in New Hampshire to spend some time with my parents. It will be good to see Dad up and about for the first time since his brain surgery in August.
