Fiddle Faddle rules! It was and still is a munchy tradition. Spent entire teenage years into mid-20's backpackin', fishin', and huntin' with ol' buddy, Tom, in Oregon wilderness. He married, raised 6 kids, and moved to Arizona. I married, raised 4 kids, and moved to Utah. 35 years since we've gotten together for a bit of outdoor idiocy. We were "Best Man" at each other's weddings. What's a mere 35 freakin' years when you are brothers of the mountains? Got together before winter snows shut up the High Uinta's of Utah. We were headin' up the rocks and canyons before owls had quit hootin' with nothing but a GPS to show us the way. Laughed ourselves to tears remembering old times and were in awe and wonder over how stiff we seem to be gettin' at our advanced age. Saw deer, blue grouse, elk skeletons, and had the mountain range all to ourselves. Covered miles off trail. Fish saw ol' Tom and Vance and sacrificed themselves, knowing it wasn't fair and they didn't stand a chance anyway. We owned it all in a completely serene and exquisite setting of primitive, solitary surroundings. The day was perfect! We can hardly wait for another 35 years so we can get together again. Wheelchair fishin'? Do I hear an "amen?"
