    We're good to go, leaving on Thursday about mid-day. Don't know which site we're in at the Burlington KOA, but we're dragging the A-frame trailer and the hounds. Ron: Terry? Y'all making the trip? I'm 509 393-8856. Thursday we're hitting the Rockfish in Anacortes (to avoid the band!), then Friday I expect to go to the Outback Steakhouse in Burlington. I'm bringing a bottle of cheap scotch for relaxing by the trailer:cool:

    The remake is 45 cal. the original is somewhere in the 46 or 47 cal.range(at least at the muzzle). I suspect that the soft steel barrel on the original has worn at the muzzle from cleaning and loading.

    Ron & Terry, I hope you guys decided not to go to the rendezvous. We drove into the thing twice, and saw only a handful of tents, no vendors, and nothing going on other than some people dressed up and "pretending". Very sad. So unless they had a bunch of stuff hidden away, with no directions to them, it wasn't worth wasting the gas.

    Alex, After rechecking the schedule we found that the International Altantic Salmon Fly event was this past weekend and I had promised to take her there, since she ties the darn things. That was a great event, even with the $25 admission fee. I managed to buy a few things for myself and for her Ladyship, plus saw some incredible tiers from all over the world.
