Thought I'd start a little blog about my summer up here.
We arrived last Sat. to our fish camp. Discovered we had a 33 hr opener the next day. My brother in law and myself scrambled to get two more of our 5 sets set out out. The 33hr opener was a pretty good one for us. We ended up with 4500 pounds in 33 hrs. There was an announcement the next day that we'd have a three day opener. So far during this opener we've caught 5800lbs of Red Salmon and have just heard there is a 48 extension to this opener. Prices are up to 1.35 per pound so it's already looking like a decent beggining to our season.
It's bitterly cold here on the south end of Kodiak for this time of year. Lots of bears moving through our area lately as well. I've not been out fishing yet that I have not seen at least one bear.
My hands are already getting a bit arthritic so I have to end this one for now. I'll try to get some pictures up in the next couple of days or so. Going on very little sleep this week.

Reasons to dislike Rossi.

Posted 03-12-2008 at 11:05 PM by jwfzr

I have many, it could be the same reason I disliked the Bee Gees in the 70s or Def Leopard in the 80's its part of my natural instinct to dislike or question the validity of something or someone that all of the sudden is the best thing since smoked oysters.
I'm just getting started there will be much more to come.

    bahaha. nice first blog post.
    I naturally root for the underdog so I am not a rossi fan. I do think he (was) very talented and he brought a lot of animation to motogp. But anytime I see someone (or some team) dominate a sport regularly my natural instinct is to root against them. Plus, he is quite the hypocritical, whiny bitch.
    The irony, tho, being that since my nature is to root for the under dog does that mean I now have to root for rossi?!?!?! zomg!!!!

    Hey! You can dislike Rossi all you want, but leave the Bee Gees and Def Leopard alone! Those guys rock! (Well, maybe not the Bee Gees... they don't really rock, but they do play good music )

    No you do not have to cheer him on, and I'll tell you why. His fans which includes every kind of media coverage constitantly believe he is still the best and espouse as much given any sort of opportunity.
    Another reason to not like him is during all of his championship years he never had any great competition. It does take a good rider to do what he has done but not a great one. He has had the best equiptment since he was a kid and had built a reputation of greatness which his competition bought into. Hes a sham. Now that there are some guys that were not brought up to fear him he has retreated like a talley wacker caught out on Lake of the Woods in January.

    Rossi IS one of the "greats". Hard to say where exactly he sits on the list for me though. I think many people love to hate him because of his fans, lol.

    Much the same way many people don't like Bayliss(except a lot less dislike Bayliss himself)

    Rossi= Rick Mears
    Bayliss= Ayrton Senna
