Un-sticking.  Someone can make a 2018 thread when it's appropriate and I or one of the mods will stick it.

We will be in San Diego for that series in early May and will be at the Rockies to close out the regular season.

We will definitely be in Arizona and Tampa, and one of either Toronto or Colorado.

Those are just my season ticket plan picks.  I typically go to about 5 or so more games, including August 4th types.   :w:

There is a scenario where I can't make the 4th though.  We're trying to do a backpacking/fishing trip to Wyoming and if we can't start the 11th we'll have to start the 4th.  Hopefully it won't come to that.

You have more balls than me. I'm an avid flyfisherman and during our trip to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone last Spring, I didn't have the balls to hit the river. Seeing the grizzlies from the car in Grand Teton early in the trip scared the crap out of me. I will enjoy the Rainbows, Browns and Cuttbows here in Colorado for the time being. 

Good for you!

While there are a handful of grizzlies in the Winds, they are few and far between.  Black bears would be more of a menace for their ability to climb and steal your food, but except for 1 or 2 nights we're going to be above the treeline where few bears go, except perhaps to find berries. 

Another thing about grizzlies - they are highly concentrated where they exist in Yellowstone, and presumably the Tetons.  Last weekend in researching food storage requirements I found "Fatality of Mr. Lance Crosby from a bear attack on Elephant Back Mountain in Yellowstone National Park on August 6, 2015", along with all the other reports prepared by the Interagency Grizzly Bear Committee.

The report is fascinating - in particular I call your attention to page 11 where every grizzly bear sighting for a 7 month period is plotted against a map of the park.  The sightings are very condensed, though one can't dismiss that where people are is where sightings are going to be reported.  There's a comparable black bear sightings page.

On my bucket list to go out west to flyfish.  Hit the rivers and streams in VA all the time.  Will be fishing the Shenandoah spring creeks next week.

Like I said, you've got more balls than me. I don't want to play the odds. We are avid campers and when we moved out here we transitioned to a hard side travel trailer so we can continue to enjoy the woods and not worry about black bears or cougars dragging us out of our sleeping bags at night.

I've not fished that far west just yet. Last summer we focused on the South Platte near Deckers.

Can someone buy JCA a beer for me (or two) ?  I'll send you the money.

I'll buy JCA a beer and you don't have to send me money. It probably wouldn't be the correct amount anyhow.

A reminder to all you opening day beer drinkers out there, the Loft gets packed and because they limit you to 2 beers per purchase, it can make recycling slow.  Amateur hour.   :roll:

Thanks but missing OD.  Also, it'd be a wine or a cider until sundown on Saturday.

National TV game I'm expecting. But it's been scheduled that way the entire time, I think.
