The Journey North...

How far are you willing to answer the bell coming from Steelhead Valhalla?

For us,  the answer lies in 868 miles and over 17 hours of travel time.

Saturday begins our journey.

Looking at the pile of gear that the 3 of us are assembling probably rivals the tonnage of most travelers that undertook the Oregon Trail.

457 flies, 12 spey rods and a couple of single handers for skating, all associative camping gear, clothing, so on and so forth

Excitement mixed with a tinge of nervousness.  A delicious cocktail.

So as the head hits the pillow, there are 5 more days between us and a lot of pavement.

That's OK, a magnet with fins will be pulling us northward.
