Flint - thanks... I

Flint - thanks... I think!

Yes, I will need to be in better shape, that is for sure.

At least with a heart attack, I will have died from semi natural causes and not with some gaping jaws and claws ripping me limb from limb!!!!

you will love it!

Jim, I'm sitting here and hoping your dream of a hunt out west next season comes to fruition. I am also grinning a bit as well, remembering my first few days walking those mountains at 8,000'+. It is an exercise in gasping!...lol. After a few days, I got more used to the thin air and actually did a good bit better than some in camp much younger than I. But, those first couple of days will be some eye openers, I can promise you that!  Yes

Ed, Thanks! I am going skiing

Ed, Thanks!

I am going skiing next week - Steamboat Springs, so I will at least get to breathe some of that mounting "thin" air.

I was originally planning a 2012 hunt - I am going to shoot for 2011 now.

I went to town a few moments ago to get 2 trail cams for the new lease - and changed my mind when it was time to pull the wallet out... I am going to save as much $$ as I can this year, with CO, MN, UT or somewhere like that in mind.

Pepper spray for bears.... I WILL spring for!!

See ya,

Jim
