And with all respect how is anyone going to notice the difference? From what I remember Fred spent lunch times coffee breaks on the Rogue anyway.

I havent been a guide for about 15 years now, but if the price of gas doesnt come down I may have to take it up again just so I can get some fishing in. Social Security doesnt buy much at $2.34 a gallon. Retired so I can go fishing now cant afford to go fishing.

you should see what i pay for a gallon of,,well ,paint thinner,really, but of course it's ;basecoat reducer,some of the stuff costs 38.95 a gallon,and of course once it's on the car ,you can't wait for it to evaporate!!?,,gas is still cheap to me,even driving a big block suburban,look at the price of bottled water!,if i HAD to drive piles of miles,,without a boat i'd certainly dig out something that get's better milage,,like my 67 gto,hmmm,does have a trailer hitch on it though,,,room for plenty of tackle,,my brother told me the guides charge 210.00 a seat on the sacramento river in redding cal.,it's 150 here,what did it cost 15 years back,,to` take a ride',i think it was 60-80 bucks in 78?

I figured out about the price of gas and fishing. Being that being retired and fishing go hand in hand. And the price of gas as it is. When ever I go someplace I eat hamburger instead of steak. Because the price of a good steak in a store is what scares me off.

Also being retired and fishing means that you can almost go when ever you want to but you now won't always have a partner to fish with because he is probly working. That is if you can't find another with your type of hours.

This doesn't make any sense does it.

Well, I must admit ...while I was working in down town Medford this 'pin prick' was all too close to the truth. But hay, you had to take 'lunch' somewhere? Just a matter of how you scheduled your appointments with Realtors.

Medford

Hammer......

I may just do that.

Lived in Grants Pass and then Brookings when I was hauling logs. Have looked at the Home prices in Medford area.

We like it here in Prineville but its 40 miles to the Deschutes at Warm springs. Just got back incidently, from trying 3 of Meizers 2 handers for trout.Standby, more coming on them. I will start a thread on them.

We are also considering Maupin. Even thinking about moving back to North of Seattle. Seeing as how I am financially challenged I am going to have to get closer to the water.

I hadn't even been 'retired' a full 24 hours (no kidding) and Joan's reading me the want -adds for part time jobs!!!!! Had to remind her this was a three day weekend and, even if I was 'employeed,' I'd have the next two days off.

Had the good sense not to tell her to 'back off.'
