I think I've done it - figured out the "Winter Yucks". Well, not really, but I do have a thought as to why it seems like FOREVER from October to March.
My real job - actually working - is VERY hectic in December and January. I am on a 2 week straight road trip right now. That means, when I DO get home , the "Honey Do" list has grown again, leaving precious little, if any, time for outdoor pursuits. In addition to the complete lack of time, winter adventures for me take a little more planning and generally a bigger chunk of time than do the spring, summer , and fall pursuits. As I've detailed numerous times in this blog, lunchtimes getaways to the ponds can do me a world of good. Can't do any ice fishing over lunch, though. So, I end up using these months to plan Summer trips, and remember days past. And acquire new toys for the coming year.
I've got a few trips in the offing for Summer - one for smallmouth bass in Quebec and a possible return to Athabasca in Fall. There is rumor of a Venice LA trip in Spring, but nothing close to definite yet.
So, until I have something decent to post , I'll make do with these type posts, and I'll always through in a few pictures from the past. they help me get through the winter - hopefully they'll do the same for you.
