"I'll try to get out in the late WA season and see who's hanging around in the wet W Washington forests.. It's not over yet ...."
That's the spirit!
Usually I consider the rain, if lighter, my friend. Not so this year. Man it really played with my mental state and pushed my constitution this year. Especially during the time I was out there solo. I got completely dumped on by the bucketfulls while in my stand a couple times, and went through that first bout of storms sitting in my tent alone. I thought lightning or a falling tree would certainly take me out.
I'm not ashamed to say that I'm glad to be outta that crap the last week and a half. LOL
Go get 'em RJ!
