Took a skunking on New Years day so I figured I'd get back the rhythem, so I spent the weekend at TX's house with some blueline hitters, Franzen, BRA, Socks and WNC Permit. Friday was the day and I was stoked to be headed to the "homelands" to ply my trade on heavily iced up bluelines.

Friday's high was 25F, thats about -4Celcius, way too cold for a Saffa lizard :o

TX was kind enough to deal with my whiny ass and took me up a creek just to shut me up. We both got skunked to high hell b';

Cracked a beer, actually ended up cracking about 20 which led to some late night messy antics, Socks and Franzen, feel free to put up those dodgy pix of the Thermarest being used as a surf board :embarassed:

Woke up late Saturday morn still acomatosed to meet up with my bru, BRA and WNCPermit

BRA reckoned I moved a 14" fish, I couldn't see him (and reckon he was just trying to be nice) as soon as I crossed the stream and stood up on the bank, sure as hell a 14" brown buggered off upstream p;-

Got really desparate and hit up the local in town

TX managed a pune and the rest is history. Tried to wade across this behemoth of a river and ended up pretty deep, I could feel water pissing into my waders :o Massive tear in my crotch. Aw fuck, was it cold. It appeared I had wee'd myself.

" class="fancybox" data-fancybox="topic">" title="" alt="" width="768" height="1024" class="bbc_img" loading="lazy">

Went to the Ingles where  the horrified locals thought I genuinely pissed myself. Even this pune weren't to happy :laugh:

I feel nothing, maybe I did slash in my jeans. I was still drunk and trying to stay warm.

TX's lil Ben is in good shape after a horrible shake down from spinal meningitis. Damn great kid that one 8)

In good spirits, I went and cleaned up the rental, only to line up skunk numero tres b';

I said it once and I'll say it again, fishing a blueline with three other people is like going to a JMU party with 20 lads and one slapper b';

The face of defeat/owned/FAIL etc :(

Heck, I had a great time, and have a few new screen savers to boot. I did realize that I honestly don't care about the skunking, just getting to fish with a darn good bunk of blokes is way more fun than watching the Packers lose to the Giants :P

The Davidson. It's full of wild fish.

Dude, we're still ~45 days out from the Q. Gordons kicking off the season.  Patience until then, home skillet.  AMF!

The Dude

How many litres of petrol per kilometer do you get in those snazzy 4-cylinder rentals?  I bet it powers right up Black Mountain on I-40.   ;)

That's a record you need to strive to beat in 2012 if I ever heard one.

I was ok at math, so I'll take a stab ???
Here are my plug in's:
lpg = liters per gallon (US) = 3.785411784
kmpm = kilometers per mile = 1.609344
This canary yellow beauty gets 36 miles per gallon which equates to 15.305 km's per litre. Not bad.
