I left today for a two-day excursion to the Catskills, to buy a new small-stream rod and carry my good camera/tripod a few miles into a really beautiful remote piece of small stream that I found last time.

15 miles out of Ithaca: "thump... thump... thump..."

The front right tire had blown out. I'm really lucky that it happened just as I was rolling up to a stoplight next to the only gas station for 10 miles in either direction. I know how to change a tire, but this one was really fussy and took some extra tools and help I couldn't have found elsewhere. I don't want to drive 150 miles back into remote mountain roads on a spare, so I guess I'll push the trip back a week or so. It should be good for the fall colors at least!

Sorry to hear about your short trip. That sucks. I remember you from CTF a year or two ago. I too was booted off for my progressive thinking and views on conservation. Oh, well. Your site is great. Even when it wasn't updated it was still pretty decent.

Oh btw... I know you live in Ithica and all but... How about adding saltwater to the mix even though striped bass and blue fish really don't feed on cadis flies:-)
