Ya, I remember the days of endless fishing excursions on the whim. Now its, hey dad,watch how far I can throw this rock! That's ok, he just got a new rod/reel and this coming weekend he's going to get a chance to use it!
Glad to hear your having some good days on the HI. Will get down there 3 or 4 times this year..
