    That's how alot of the events I do are. Party hard at night, up early to fish (Can you say Puke and Rally!) ;)

    Not a biggie for me. If people don't want breakfast, I'll sleep in a bit. I'm not a "first water" type. I've caught plenty of fish after boats and people have fished through. Plus, I do alot of fishing during the year. I don't want to do a "hardcore fishing trip" when there's a hundred fisherman there already. LOL. So it's more of a social gathering and a chance to wet a fly on one of my favorite rivers. So a win-win for me.

    I tell you what. If anybody wakes me up and it's still dark out they better run for the hills as I'll have beating somebody on my mind.

    I get up to an alarm 6 days a week. When I'm away from home is the only time I get to sleep in. So eveybody is forewarned.

    Come on Jim, you're just encouraging bad behavior with a post like that. You know that there is going to be someone there that is willing to "poke the bear". :D

    Grumpy old man, you'll have plenty of time to sleep in 25 years.

    No problem Matt. I didn't feel like rereading the whole thread. So thought I'd post it up. No biggie though, just curious so I could put my order in.

    I'm hoping the water comes up a bit. If we don't get more water, my driftboat is staying home (sorry buck and fishdontcare). I'll be bringing my two pontoons anyways. So will have one toon for someone who wants transport (now, if I bring my driftboat I'll have two pontoons for people to use).

    Yeah Jim, I concur. Think you just asked for people to come to your hotel room and bang at wee hours of the night.

    Well, I'll be sleeping in my camper at the Oxbow. Just don't startle me. Hate to have my M4 go off thinking there was an intruder. LOL

    Ok, seriously, wouldn't bring it. Just kidding (people have been testy lately, makes me feel like I have to clear up my sarcasm).

    I don't plan on getting much sleep. I'm on vacation that next week, so figured I'll sleep when I get home. What sucks, I'm home this and next weekend trying to finish what's left of the flood damage cleanup when I could be fishing. DAMNED IT! Thank god for cell phones with internet access and short breaks. :)

    I wouldn't think of knockng on door that had OMJ, Mumbles, and I on the other side, unless, of course it was to fish.

    Don'r even bother. My fishing sucks in Washington. And I don't like to get up unless the sun is shining and it is in the upper 80's. Fat chance of that happening.

    So back to the real topic for a minute. Is anyone going on the first weekend and if so how long are you planning to stay? I have to do some crap for my wife on Sun. morning so I will be heading out late Sunday or early Monday depending on the ferry schedule. Anyone else going to be there????

    I won't be there the first weekend (aka this weekend). Have some 4H duties in the evening. Sucks, had to scrub my morning fishing trips to the coast though.

    Ok, I'm hoping this rain brings the water up and we don't get too much cold to drop them back down again. So, here's an offer.

    IF, and I say IF the rivers are at decent levels I'm bringing my driftboat. The seats in my driftboat are filled already. BUT, if I bring my driftboat I'll have two pontoons available for Saturday and Sunday. Ones my baby (my 10' Steelheader) and a 9' Outcast fishcat. They'll both be up for grabs. So, if you know what you're doing and want to use them, I'm offering them up IF the river has water and I can run the driftboat. Don't feel like rockbouncing if it's low. If it's low, both are spoken for already. But this isn't a first come first served. Have to have the "approval" from one of the established board members (either if you know me, or Chris, IBN, etc can vouch for you).

    I'll be doing some of the food shopping next week, probably wed/thurs. Have to get the ribeye and the ribs in the dryrub. :)

    One of those "blue lines" in the WA, MT,
    I'll be heading out the evening of the 25th or early morning on the 26th and staying until Sunday. Maybe longer if the conditions are good and the fish are willing! :beer1:

    Jerry, the food sounds great! Looking forward to seeing your setup and sampling the food! :thumb:

    The Keg has been reserved, bring your mug and donate some ice to keep it cold for the week. The keg and I will be arriving Wednesday. Does anybody have a tap? It will save me the deposit.
