I hope my son one day is lucky enough to marry a girl like these when they grow up.

Rob,

Awesome pics! I can't wait for the next one! I like the thought process behind your posting agenda, it's real and has more merit than I could hope for. Thanks for the effort, let me help you out with some pictures, I'm going to get some up this weekend.

If you send 'em, I'll post 'em. I've got some more to post of the BCR too, once I get my act more together. Taking Fin out to scare fish on the S. Platte / bike ride. Got my draw stuff in for elk and bought my fishing license to fish day 2 of the 2016 season!

Re your post on the other thread, if anyone calls you a "dumb grunt", I hope I'm there. Insult to friends is worse than one to me, I'll gladly handle your "light work", knowing you'll extract if I'm over my head... Excited about late May, glad to hear you're making progress in getting checked out, and checked in here!! I think we ALL are ready for your retirement, man!!

Awesome pix Rob! It has been way too long since I made a winter rondy trip. Too many friends getting married this year, so I won't be able to make the spring rondy (holding out for potentially the back-country rondy). I am going to Anchorage for one of these weddings (never been to Alaska before). Pretty excited. I'll have to live vicariously through your pictures.

Justin: You still migrating back to the North-Wet this summer?

Mojo,

I will not be heading back to the PNW, I picked up a job in SW Colorado with the forest service.

Great pictures!

I like the use of the bucked up round to support the tipi pole.

Digging down is definitively the way to go.

Tell me about what the stove is sitting on.

I 'think' that's a Kifaru stove base, will ask Justin in a minute... I usually steal a cookie sheet from my wife. Crate from the sled underneath. February was a dry month, there usually is more than twice that much snow, but, March & April dumped.

Andy, Ken, do you have any rondy pics from back east that haven't been posted? Would love to see 'em!!

I usually post the best of the photos I take - the people, food, some of the activities and interesting gear setups.

Thank you for the great photos. I do my work on the computer, so in my "off" time I stay as far away from a computer as possible. I only visit this forum occasionally and enjoy seeing all of the cool stuff happening.

I believe Robbie Downs posted a bunch of photos from the latest East Coast Rondy. I have missed it for the past couple of years. I'm attending the next one for sure. Lots of good friends, food, and shooting. You guys out West look like you know how to make it happen, too.

Thanks again,

Andy & Woods Walker & everyone else, GREAT photos there, I had been bumbling trying to use Tapatalk, using an actual computer helps.
