New sighting. Looked like FWC Hawk at the golf course in scenic Idaville, Oregon, plus one on a green Tundra heading south on 101 towards Tillamook.

Was the one on green Tundra pulling my boat? Or had I just left the boat on its trailer with broken axle in Garibaldi?

Broken axle in Garibaldi. Ouch, sorry that happened to you!

Tillamook county has the worst roads in Oregon.

Did you get to fish?

Caught a few Redfin surf perch, then took a charter out of Garibaldi and got some nice rockfish. Took almost three weeks to deal with insurance & get new trailer. Tuesday & Wednesday this week had flat ocean. Went out of Garibaldi to Three Arches area. Three limits of 8” Dungeness, almost limited on rockfish plus one nice Ling cod for the three of us. Couldn’t have been nicer on ocean.

Just back from a week in SW CO - the aspen were gorgeous. So many photos it may take some time to put the trip report together. Saw quite a few FWC/ATCs up there, too many to list, and a s#!tload of those mass-market pop-ups.


One cool rig of note was a flat-bed mount on a late model tan Tundra coming down from one of the high passes at Animas Forks late Monday. We were on divergent paths so didn't get a good look, but I'm guessing FWC. It was following a yellow dog running down the road ;-)

Left yesterday morning drive south 395 checking out fall foliage along the way to South Lake and North lake above Bishop and back today around 4 pm.


At least 20 or more popup sightings.  More popular than you think....

We saw a Hawk flatbed on a black Ram 2500 in Peaks of Otter campground on the Virginia portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway (milepost 86) this morning.

Texas plates. Towing an off-road trailer.

We stayed in the same campground last night but I didn’t get a chance to talk to the owner as we arrived late last night and left early this morning.
