Nebraska sure was a fun guy to have on that trip last year. But when he did the write up he blew me away. Man can that guy write. I miss that guy we call Nebraska.

Wow, this was by far the most interesting report I have ever read. Thank you for that! Every single day of your trip I feel like I was right there with you and each day was better than any trip I have ever been on. You have inspired me, I need to go long! Make it count.

Nebraska travel safe, watch the weather forecasts, who knows what Mother Nature will be up to. It’s been a unique Winter. Texas has been freezing.

This thread is quite long and it might be starting version 2.0. Only my 2 cents.

No matter what you decide do travel safe and have a fantastic trip. Fishing appears to be a bit tougher this year, especially with the island closed.

I as well will be waiting for the next installment.

I'll start a new one but I reread this last night and ended up more jacked than I already was :)

Watching weather daily like a hawk. Thursday I push from Denver to Vegas and weather has some snow in it so sweating that and planning accordingly.

I'm tired of negative temps and ready for tropical.

At least it will be a lot warmer down South. Be safe

Prefer Long Range or skiffs (great if combined!)
Just read this for the first time, as others have said: AWESOME writing. Looking forward to your next piece and hopefully a coveted Cow to add and write about. Don't scrimp on that rail time (I know you won't), I will attest as a one time noob myself.
Craig, please do the world a favor and add "publish a writing piece " to one of your life goals. Be it hunting, travel, life, or my selfish choice: Fishing, we would all benefit.
Good luck Dude!

Thanks for the kind words. Blizzard coming here this weekend and I'm packing shorts... weird sensation. Never even considered writing something for publication in my life let alone penned something like the above before but long range had brought many goals to my life already outside of fishing.

Thanks Jim. Wife and I are just putting together leaving a day early and heading west Tuesday after work so I can get through Colorado/Utah mountains before the next storm hits Thursday. They'll have roads clean by then and gives us more time in Vegas though :)

Smart. Even smarter if you can find someplace better than Vegas to pass the time...but I'm biased.

LOL

We'll spend Tuesday night with my sister in Denver. Wednesday night in Cedar city Ut. Wife's never been to Vegas so Cirque du soleil show and room in Vegas Thursday night and then my mentor Paul and his bride are graciously putting us up Friday night. We won't suffer and a great start to 26 days off work.

Just be careful where you park your truck in LV. Especially your fishing tackle or bring it into your room. PS St George Utah is a bit warmer than Cedar and only about one hour down the hill. Just my two cents. Travel safe.
