Spending the summer at the cabin.

Here's a pic of a nice 6 pound BWCA Smallie I caught recently.

...and watch out on the fire roads!

...and speaking of fire roads, I was dumb enough to try this route. It was a beast. It's not everyday you see three wolves, a moose and a bobcat in the same hour.

The past two weekends were fairly busy for me.

The Lady and I visited Portsmouth, NH two weeks ago:



And hopped over to York Beach, ME for Mon/Tues.

Sunrise over the Atlantic:







Last weekend was spent camping at a friend's farm. imgur is being funky, so I'll add that pic later...

Thank you sir.

We just caught 7 Smallies over 4 pounds the other day.

Fantastic fishing this summer in the BWCA.

I'll be using some of your flies tomorrow. Testing fishing kayaks.

Found these ape hangers at a flea market. Thought they might go well on the tandem. How ridiculous does that look.

My bikes are learning to cope with having some space and sunlight! I doubled the space that I have, and went from 1,5 meter sloping ceilings in half of it (I'm about 1,75 meters tall) to beautifully scalloped 3,0 meter ceilings in all of it. Now it's time to double-check my understanding of Swedish electrical codes, buy a ladder and wire up some expensive-as-hell ceiling lights so I can see at night and at noon in winter.

If you were so inclined I'm sure you could. I walked my bike because I am a huge chicken and pictured myself wiping out and then sliding over the side and plunging into the Mississippi.

Drove up north to beautiful San Antonio (Florida, not Texas), where there's actual hills! In Florida! Rode 70 miles. The last 20 were pretty brutal. 100 degrees and 90% humidity. Worth it for the views though.
