Vail Half Marathon

Jeanne and I worked hard getting to the gondola to go cheer Janis on in the Vail Half Marathon.  Janis managed to better his time from last year by 5 minutes at 2:37:59.  This is a grueling mountain race that is 14.1 miles and has 4019 elevation gain with an average of 7% grade.  Jeanne and I walked a mile with a elevation gain of 12 feet and then managed to get on the Gondola without hurting ourselves.  Meanwhile Janis surged ahead toward the finish.  Janis trains with the WA Hydrate and Recover, Energy and Focus and the energy gels.  Janis said, "I used the gels at the half way point and it pushed me forward."  Congrats Janis on finishing this grueling race and improving your time!

Fishin' Pics

The SS Scott has been on the water quite a bit lately since the river levels have come down.  Our man, Janis Putelis, has been behind the oars and putting us on fish.  We have caught some nice fish and have tangled many fly lines!

Eagle River Trip Report 7.23.11


This footage actually shows 7.20 and 7.23 fishing clips. We had two great days fishing with Janis. Jeanne's arm needed to be iced for the amount of fish she caught. Those two are dangerous together when they get on the water.

Cool Trail Cam Picture


I went out to check a few of our trail cameras last week.  When scrolling through the pictures I was amazed at this picture of a coyote and a mule deer doe sharing a drink together.  Makes you wonder what else goes on when no one is watching!

Eagle River Trip Report 7.15.11

We had a good day fishing the Eagle River with guide Janis Putelis.  the water was still high at 3000 cfs.  You can see from the pics that the water is still big but retreating daily.  The holes and seams are starting to open up by the day.  Save your strength emailing me about my sweet fishing hat.  The last picture shows what Janis has to put up with on a daily basis with me.  I can tangle a fly line like no one else I have ever seen!

Arizona Monsoon Rain

I was up around Flagstaff last weekend and the monsoon rains have definitely started.  We got some rain all three days we were there.  The forest looked very green.  Units 7, 9 and 10 all looked like they were getting some good rain.  Hopefully the rains continue.
