    Fresh fish is the best. Do you let them go after injured? Is it just a sport? Just wondering.

    I use lures or flies. They end up hooked in the mouth. They are easy to release to fight another day. Some places require barbless hooks which are super easy to release. I agree with the fresh fish comment. Nothing better than fresh caught Alaskan salmon or halibut.

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.

    I like that you go fishing in dress shirts. You deserve to be king of the forum. I came from a fam that hunted, and married a man who hunts. I don’t know why I have such an aversion to that when I buy meat in the grocery. I am not a vegan. I guess it is because I don’t want to slaughter them, myself. It makes me not responsible.

    Long sleeve shirts while fishing provide both bug and sun protection. They aren't so much dress shirts as they are fishing shirts. The ones they make today are quite comfortable to wear, even in hot weather.

    Thanks for the education on that. From your pics, I was thinking you are the best dressed fisherman that I have ever seen. Happy fishing!

    Am I the only one who is most interested in seeing photos of the RV interior re-do? I want to see the pretty changes. Not that fish aren't pretty.......
    .

    I like to be right.

    Everyone's entitled to my opinion.

    If you don't have anything nice to say to someone, then you need to STFU.

    Dehydrated ice cream sandwiches are a thing. You know the freeze dried ice cream you get at the Air & Space Museum? Like that, only as an ice cream sandwich. They had them at the Bastrop farmers market so of course we had to try them. They're tasty but stick to my teeth.

    Once I get my rug and throw pillows I'll post pics of the makeover. Right now it looks better, but not amazing.

    There was a bomb threat called in to the local Buc-ee's. More proof that Al Qaeda hasn't been totally eliminated.

    For the uninitiated, Buc-ee's is a chain of "Texas-sized" gas station/convenience store chain offering industry staples (and more) on a massive scale. Motorists driving up to one of more than three dozen Buc-ee's facilities in Texas rarely need to wait to fuel up given the dozens of pumps at the typical store.

    Inside each expansive Buc-ee's store, visitors can stock up on snacks for their drive, including items not offered at standard convenience store options — the chain's signature "Beaver Nuggets" referencing its titular mascot, comprising light, caramel-flavored puffs that can prove to be an addicting snack; candied jalapeños that are poured over cream cheese and often served with crackers for unique noshing purposes; "Sizzlin' Saltines" spicy crackers for those preferring a salty dining option; sugar-coated pecans; a dizzying array of beef jerky; and other unique food fare.

    There are now 40 Buc-ee's locations in Texas, with the chain's status as an industry phenomenon firmly established. In 2012, the chain opened its largest travel center in New Braunfels, Texas, just outside San Antonio along Interstate 35. The New Braunfels location is the largest convenience store in the world at 68,000 square feet, features 120 fueling positions, 83 toilets, 31 cash registers, four Icee machines, and 80 fountain dispensers.

    Thank god the Buc-ee's is safe.

    We have been in almost nonstop rain since early August. It followed us to Gatlinburg, then Scranton, then Nebraska, and back to Texas. Since we got to Bastrop we've had a few days of rain-free weather, and one or two days in the 80s. Last year this time we were floating in the pool in St. Augustine and having drinks at tiki bars by the water.

    Hello rain and cold??? We're trying to avoid you. Stop following us!

    Last night Monello and I had our semi-annual fight to clear the baffles and ward off boredom. Dishes were thrown, cops were called, and we both spent the night in jail until the campground owner could come and post our bail.






    Just kidding. Our fights are boring and consist of me telling Monello I'm pissed about something, him going, "Okay", and then we start talking about buying kayaks and what amenities we need in future campgrounds.

    When I book a campground, I go on the town's tourism site and check out their events calendar so I can fill my datebook with things we want to do. There have been some fun things going on in this surrounding area, but rain and cold has hosed up a lot of them. Saturday we went to Pine Street Market Days downtown, which happens every month, second Saturday. A bunch of crafters and artisans, gifty type of stuff, and they had a big car show for Veteran's Day. This week is a bit sparse. There's a band that sounds good at Neighbor's this weekend, so we'll go to that.

    People sometimes think that we're constantly on the go go go, but it's not like that. We live pretty much the same as anyone else, just in different locations. Laundry, grocery shopping, we're in the middle of a Modern Family marathon starting with Season 1, like that. It's not like vacation, it's just life.
