Back in NEPA for the weekend

And pumpkins and gourds were purchased at Robas Farm.


The Banshee I shall miss thee

I’ll soon be leaving NEPA, for South Central Pennsylvania, namely Carlisle. Whether I’ll rename the blog or start a new one or not bother, I haven’t decided, but I’ll let you know soon.



Two fish

At Elmhurst today. First cast, brown tube and straight into a +2 foot Chain Pickerel. Followed up with a 14″ Smallmouth Bass. Sweaty work!


Trapped by the storm


Trapped in Allentown. I can think of no worse ending. Here comes the apocalypse.

Fishing near Fords Pond yesterday and Lola shrieked “Bear!” And there it was, a huge black bear trundling down the dirt road minding its own business. We gave the game commission a call, and they told us to “Just leave it alone, there’s lots of bears down there.” Oooookkk. In other news we saw snapping turtles.

Jog on Mr Deer

This deer tried to car jack us on the road to Mr Z’s the other night. Lucky for us I was in possession of the Venison 3000 anti-deer alarm. Unfortunately I did not have autofocus on my camera.

Off to Vermont

Later today we’ll begin our road trip to Vermont and Lake Champlain for a spot of camping, outdoor life and fishing. I’m sure there will be a few breweries to be visited along the way – Magic Hat and Otter Creek to name but two.

Apparently you can shoot pike in Lake Champlain at this time of year. I can’t wait for dynamite season.

Last time we took a serious road trip it was in a SMART car up a bunch of big mountains in Spain. Now that was fun too!
