Fishing an Oregon Volcano
Al and Dale’s Grand Volcanic Adventure
I arrived at the Walmart lot in Klamath Falls at 1600. It was hot as I pulled onto the asphalt parking lot to spend the night. I ran the generator and house air conditioner for over five hours during the evening and even got up sometime during the night to turn them on again for awhile. Eventually I slept well by having the little fan blowing on me in the bedroom all night long. It was a long day, and a comfortable night.
Around 2200 we called it a day. I hit the sack and Al folded down the couch and rolled out the sleeping bag again.
Morning coffee as we endured the hardships of camping in a volcano. Dang! I need to cut out those Chinese pig-outs, McFlurries and peach cobblers!
Ol’ buddy Al talked about selling his boat, something I had already done, and that would likely spell the end of our fishing trips together, something we’ve been doing for years. Perhaps we’ll just hire a guide and do our fishing the easy way. Or maybe we won’t. Or maybe Al will keep his boat. Whatever the case, Al and I have had some wonderful times together on the water, and one way or another I hope we keep up the tradition!

Thank You Dale for your story and account of your mighty travel adventures they are always
very enjoyable and as I read them they always kind of remind me of the stories I used to
watch on the TV sort of like on a Walt Disney adventure – Yeah that’s It – Dale Disney – ha ha.
Keep up the good work and Thanks again. Dan Thomas
Hi Dan – Thanks for the visit and the kind words. The comments have pretty much shriveled away on my site since I quit the fishing days. All the more appreciation for your note. – Dale
I must say as one who lived in Idaho and was forced to move back to Calif. I know how you must feel every time you escape here and then have to return. what I am enjoying in reading your wit is the pics as I am looking to were when the day comes not if it comes I can leave this state one more time and I hope for good. I am liking the whole area of south mid Oregon you have been showing and well when last up that way i was impressed but not any were as I am threw your words and eye. keep it up fishing included or not your a great read thanks!!
Hi Marty –
Thanks for your very kind comments both here and on the other two stories on which you commented. I sometimes wonder if my endless complaining about Kalifornistan falls on deaf ears, so it’s good I have at least one fella who agrees. I was just complaining about life in this state to my barber this morning and he’s another who agrees.
I’m glad you enjoyed the stories. I have fun writing them and miss the writing about fishing more than the actual fishing. But I still have the traveling and I enjoy the trips and writing about them.
Drop in anytime and enjoy the stories.
