    BTW, thought I'd explain why I'm debating on the corned beef and cabbage. I don't make it alot, and really don't want to do one in camp if I'm not proficient at it. Yeah, I could buy a premade one and toss into a pot like most. But hey, I'm not that way. ;) I may do a stew with the fixins though. :) I'll surprise you all hows about that? :)

    Lets see one rest room in camp and cabbage and corned beef for dinner. Think I like the stew idea better.

    Please no other payments until we decide if the Hoh is a go or not. We will make final decision on this Tuesday. So if we are still a go as of Tuesday then I will accept payments.

    As of now, I'm withdrawing due to heavy rains and river going way out again. It's come up 1100cfs and climbing still. So here's the details.

    I will reimburse those of you through paypal. Just have to go through all my transactions, then slowly start sending monies back. Won't do it tonight, but probably do it next weekend since I'll be home (doing work out on the farm right now stormproofing some things thanks to the winds). If I have time tonight, will do. But will do for sure this week or next weekend for sure. I will take a slight fee though, 39.99 for transaction fees............ ;) ROFL. J/K. I'll be sending each of you $40 back. Now, those who sent checks. I have not cashed any of them yet (I always cash them last minute). Did you want me to just destroy them? I can message you back check # for your ledgers and I'll tear then burn them. Let me know if that's ok, if not I can mail them back to you.

    Thanks for understanding everyone.

    Jerry

    Jerry, thank you for coordinating all of this, regardless of it not coming to fruition. I look forward to fishing with you soon. Ed

    Thanks Jerry. I am bummed I can't have any super awesome grub this weekend, but thank you for being willing to take this on again, and for refunding all of us. Maybe we can have some other kind of gathering this summer? It pains me to think of one more whole year...

    LOL. We could possibly do a WFF get together. Possibly at a lake that has fishing and an area to possibly camp. I'd be game for that.

    Sounds like a win win to me Ed. Would have to make it work for everyone though. Have quite a few events during the summer. Will see what we can arrange. :) Maybe even a big Yak trip? Outside the 2 fly in August of course.

    Anywhere you think will work Jerry. Maybe a lake outing? Perhaps we could get some sponsors to allow us to rent out the entire Cady Lake complex. I bet if someone contacted Larry he would be interested. Might depend on the fishing though. Any rivers closer to the unit so that we don't displace the soldiers so far to Yakima twice in the summer?

    Ed, we do numerous Yak trips with the soldiers. Hell, some have had numerous deployements to Iraq and Afghanistan, a drive to the Yak is nothing. ;) Just the 2 fly is our big event. We do several small Yak trips a year. Think we have 4-5 Yak trips planned this summer. Just the Yak is nice for the soldiers, because it's a great confidence booster for those who are new to the sport.

    And, I already started a WFF BBQ thread. :)

    5170? That's enough said if you're trying to flyfish. Now gear fishing I could possibly work it but prefer it below 4000 for gear (dropping not raising) and below 2500 with a fly. That's a lot of water in that river.
