OK Backyard, Roper, Dr. SAK and myself are headed out there next wednesday for a long weekend.

Since everyone else wussed out we cut the trip short (figured that 7 days of henry's lake ice would be a bit much).


Here's the update for those attending:

Update: I have all the appliances you could want. Gas range, dishwasher, super deluxe fridge/freezer, 6ft. box freezer and a weber gas grill. I also have a washer and dryer.

If you are attending please call me to confirm: 206-660-1716 I do not have a phone that works out there (unless t-mobile put up a new tower). If you can find the fall river cafe you can find my place. I am north of them about 300 yards.

Plan on it being cold cold cold. You can fish anywhere. See the list below for travel times to different locations. The browns will be running so you can plan on some serious crazy hog fishin in the local rivers.

As for the Henry's lake closer you can plan on fishing scuds and leeches.

Bring warm bedding. The cabin will sleep everyone so there is no need to camp outside.

My Address is:

3266 Highway 20
Ashton, ID 83420-5712


The best land mark for locating the cabin is the Fall River Cafe.

Either online or offline you will have to divuldge your true identity and pledge loyalty to team rugged and it's founding fathers: MacRowdy, Whitey, Roper, Sparse and the current president BackYard.

Or two personal referalls will suffice. Granted I know them and they can vouch for you.

MAC: "Sorry but I've got a rowdy reputation to uphold"

PS if you are over 65 then you are in. Or if you can produce photos of yourself jumping a monster bonfire while at least half naked then you're in. Or if you bring six 18-19 year old college cheerleaders then your in too.

Yes, if someone has partaken of the shark repellant ala Old Man Jim then yes for sure you would be qualified. :)

We'd love to have ya Mike.

The airport is Idaho Falls just as a general FYI.

I sure hope that it isn't just MACYard and our cheerleaders jumping over the fire...

I knew there were perks with meeting old man. once i am in utah i plan to make time for as many WFF associated events as possable. I'll road just about anywhere to throw a fly, especially when beer, bon fires and babes are involved.

I''ll vouch for Irishmac10. Even if he is a Scotchman. Real name escapes me now as a few beers really screw up the brain. But he is all right.

The Confirmed list is as follows:

Roper and Mrs. Roper
MacYard and groupies
Leaky Tiki
JBrodie
IrishMac
A couple of my backwoods redneck cousins
the two guys from boise
and a few other unnamed folks.

There are a few maybes out there but we'll firm them up.
And hey, if there are any of you who are a little hesitant please feel free to step up. Even if I can't get anyone to vouch for you all you have to do is pay hommage to Team Rugged, Swear your loyalty, then get naked and jump over the fire! Heck, Roper did it so why can't you!?

Also: if there is anyone who might have and or is willing to pull a trailer full of my stuff in exchange for some help with gas money please let me know. I would like to drag a couple more beds out there for the guests in addition to a couple other items I wasn't able to fit in my ghetto fabulous travel trailer. hahahaha

Also: (this is really stretching it but) is there anyone who might want to flat tow an old Land Rover I picked up? hahahaha I've been planning on pulling it over with my landcruiser and then leaving both rides there but I don't think that I'll have the re-wire job done in time.

(The old series I LandRover does not run and I got it for $100. It will be fixed up, painted, safari'd out and used as advertising for www.coldcanyonoutfitters.com )

I sent you an E-mail stating my true identity, hope you got it, but if you didn't my true name is John. JBrodie and the Old Man Jim can vouch for me,
I met Old Man Jim today. fishing the Stilly.
About this loyalty thing, I really can't do that until I meat the team, but I don't see any problem with the pledge.
Sorry, I'm not over the hill yet, and this thing about the monster bonfire and jumping, everybody knows white men can't jump :confused:
Now about the cheerleaders, why only six?
Irishmac10 aka John
PS thank you for putting on the comfrimed list.
