Since moving to a wild west mountain town, I have been pondering a new rig.

You know, something practical and useful here.

Maybe a truck or SUV type thing.

Priorities include some cargo capacity, tractability in snow, the ability to easily navigate fire and or forest service roads.
All practical stuff...

The secret agenda is to get something that could be used as the occasional camper.
A rig big enough to hold camping gear for impromptu adventure weekends out in some wilderness.
Even that is sort of a practical goal.

This thinking has me looking at lots of options.

And sometimes you find the magic treasure...

This is from some years back, but worth a watch...

How about this thingy, huh?

It's a Salmson Val3, with some sort of aircraft engine...

I assume also Salmson.

Other than a couple pics, I have't found any details on what is going on here...

Spent a full day floating ten miles of the lower Deschutes river yesterday.

Technically, it was a fishing trip...
But no trout graced hooks presented by anybody other than the guide.
Floating seems like a more accurate description.

I did catch a snail, but it came off the hook.
I don't think people fish for snails.

Good day.
River canyon views, wild horses, cold water...

It was my father's idea, and a good one.

After crawling in and out of a boat all day, standing in fifty degree water and not catching a single fish...
I think I now understand the appeal of fishing.

This is why we need the internet...


So, it's September 11th again.

Not sure what to think about that.
Haven't forgotten, don't like remembering...

Not much more I have to say about that.
