      I took this nice picture of beautiful NYC this morning on my way to Atlanta for a concert tonight! I thought of the similarities between a city like NY and the aspen forests and saplings jungles of SW Colorado. Not many visually! I can’t wait to fly out of my concrete jungle to the aspen jungles Monday for a full 7 days at 11000ft chasing Elk! First, spending 2 days visiting Elkheart, then driving to the TDowning family wilderness camp!! I’m such a lucky SOB to have such great friends!! My gear is ready. Going in pretty light, with enough stuff to keep warm and dry!

      Elkheart in the jungle:

      Sounds like you have an excellent tour planned, Alex. Say hi to that crazy old man in the ‘jungle’ from all of us! Good luck on the wapiti and keep us posted.

      Alex–bring your best rain gear absolutely waterproof boots and use all your connections to get someone to turn the tap off. Dave and Bruce, thanks amigos. I’m still around but have had some issues to deal with, like stewing in my own juices thanks to torrential daily rains and some annoying personal issues keeping me from hunting. Forecast looks better next week. Good weather and good hunting and good health to you all. Dave (aka crazy old man)

      Good to hear from you, Dave! Hope the rains (and other issues) don’t get any worse down in your end of the state. Keep us updated – I always find it fascinating to hear what the elk are doing elsewhere and compare it with what I’m experiencing here.

      Alex…You made fun of me last time you were here because I was wearing “designer wear” KUIU. I can see you have become a believer in fine goods! Looking forward to seeing you in the next few days. We are going to have a fun! T

      Good Luck and I hope that you get better weather than I had this past week. I spent 3 days in a bathtub that was suppose to be a tent and slid all the way down the Mountain to the Truck. I’m still trying to dry out my gear. I look like a walking Prune!

      I agree with Smitty and Wahoo: nice to hear from the Buddha. Been wondering about you, man.

      As for the concrete jungle, well, the picture alone is overwhelming to me. Congrats to you for being able to navigate both.
