I came back from fishing and two of my boys had done that. I thought about objecting, but the chair was kinda comfy and the view was great :) Besides that, I figured if they were tough enough to get it there....I didn't want to piss them off.

They were good. I'll be doing it again. We had 6 guys eating on about 40 of em. Not really anything to fill the belly, actually it was an after diner leisure activity. I had been meaning to try this for years and finally did it. We put fish parts in a fishing net and let it sit in the water for 15-20 min at a time and when you went back there were 5-10 in the net each time. cooked them up and ate them with the evening libations. I liked them, could of used some butter though.

I snapped this of two of my brothers on Jap Lake's NW camp #492 after playing with the shutter speed/aperture a bit. In the last moments of daylight Brevan is reflecting on the blown down/burned skyline in the background. Darien is making sure his headlamp is ready for the darkness. We were fortunate to have been able to have a fire due to restrictions.

I know it is a dark picture, but this is Clove Lake with my buddy Zac tending the flame. Whenever I am out camping with him, he is always the last up, stroking the fire. This image is what pops into my mind whenever I think of a campfire; someone leaning over it, getting it brighter, while the darkness hugs us all.
