Good news is that this experience is still in front of you and not behind you.  The hunt, anticipation......is where it's at.


Good Luck!  Soak it all in!  (no pun intended)

Sideways snow!  Sure looks like a goat hunt to me.  I will enjoy following along with the hunt.  Best of luck Josh.

No he was not out hunting goats this weekend.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Hope you're not on the road right now heading up, looks like today is going to be brutal up top, High of 30 Low of 20 8" of snow and 22mph winds.  Though Friday evening through Monday looks perfect! 
Good luck if you're heading out.  Cant wait to see and read more of the story.

At this point, it's getting complicated logistically. I'm hoping to drum up a mature billy. Snow is a thing and getting me snowed out makes me really, really nervous.
