Not a TR TR

I need a running Not a TR thread.  Just to dump a few pictures when I get out for a couple hours.  Feel free to throw up your trips that aren't worth its own thread. 



Took two hours to get away from the house.  Power outage at my inlaws so they have been living at my house since Friday.  They still don't have power....  Wife was going to Durham for a play Sunday, so just needed a couple hours of serenity before a day filled with inlaws and crying baby that has never been away from momma for more than 3 hours.  Caught a handful of fish in 25 mph winds with a wicked glare in my face before dusk.  I'll take it.











On a side note, I think there was an authentic Shelby Cobra 427 at a BBQ joint in town.





If it isn't authentic it is a really really good kit car.  Had signed dash, 427 badge, plate, non chrome exhaust.  If it is real, guy has bigger gonads than I parking it in a parking lot to eat.

Most likely a Factory Five Racing kit car.   The signature may be real or fake.  Still a gorgeous car.

I'll play.
Was planning this for Saturday. That was beforer the winds and power going out at 1 AM Friday.
And staying out until 3:30 PM Sat. Sunday was game on.

Scouting trip. With rod. And a buddy that has never fished with me.
And will probably never, ever do it again.  :laugh:

Upper access is somewhat well publicized.
Lower, not.
Drive. FR. FR branch. Gate. Hike. Bushwhack.

42 degree water.
Wood is supposed to be good?
Fish. Skunk. Bushwack. Hike. FR. Drive.
7 miles of nada. Just sweat and stretched legs.
Will head upstream. To be continued.....

We need to fish. Maybe you're good luck?

Hey! A TR without TR? Sounds like the thread for me. Mind if I play with today's non-TR? OK. I'll play anyway.

Went out this morning for a two hour fish. Hiked down, lost two flies, caught a dink brook that unbuttoned at my feet, and hiked back out.









No trout were photographed.

A for effort to the both of you.

And while I know that it is probably a kit car, it sure looks legit/I kind of want it to be legit. Has even the plate above the shifter and a set of eagle tires. If it is a kit the guy has the attention to detail down pat.

If it were original, it would be in a trailer.

Good idea, J. Some time ago I contemplated creating a thread of this nature but didn't. I instead displayed the uneventfulness of several outings by letting them have their own report.

It's uplifting to see you fellas frequenting the woods and chasing the trout.

Please continue.....

most all of my TRs fall into this category
ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

If it were original, I would have it in a safe and it never would be on the road considering the last few sold for almost a million over 10 years ago.  The original prototype sold for over 17 million.
