[quote]In my reading last night, I saw something about stretching the line before you fish....Is this important to do?[/quote] the line or the leader? pre-packaged leaders need to be stretched a little when you get a fresh new one, or if you balled one back up and stored it that way. I just hold ...

re: Would you accept a kidney donation from someone you knew, but not family or close friend? - ccard257
If I needed a kidney I wouldn't give a shite where it came from. Being a close friend or relative doesn't make someone less likely to be a shithead later either. ...

re: Waterproof boots that work, and I mean in harsh conditions they worked amazingly well - ccard257
Glad those worked for you, but it's not the miracle it used to be. Anything with a good gor-tex (or similar membrane) liner will do the same. I've got some Vasque sundowners with a gor-tex liner that are over 10 years old. I can still stand in water damn near to the top and fish till I get bored wit...

re: Tell about Big Sur, Cali - ccard257

re: Just got 2 tickets to inauguration Friday - ccard257
I went to Obama's second. I'm not an Obama guy at all and it was still a really cool thing to experience. I would go again for any president if given the oportunity. Hard to say what's "worth it" to you money wise. We stayed with friends and our tickets were free so it wasn't very expensive for us. ...

re: Snow skiing Experts - ccard257
No need for the asprin, just stay hydrated and listen to your body. Altitude affects different people differently so you just have to play it by ear. The only drug that really does anything to help with AMS is diamox and no one is going to give you that to go ski Colorado. And remember, you don'...
