Well I just had an expensive stay at a High priced hotel. The Barrett Hospital. I had a flare up of GOUT. It was so bad I couldn't even walk let alone put any pressure on my Left foot. It started on Sunday when I came home from a exploring trip. I was checking out the head waters of Bloody Dick Creek. Lots of nice water where I was at. But back to my Hospital stay. I don't think that I have ever taken as many pills in a 24 hour period as I did since yesterday morning. All gout medicine. Big pills, little pills, Shots in the belly(three of theses). I'm home now but I still limp. I need to get back out and see if I can still cast flies. Not really looking for any get wells as I'm gong to do that. Just wanted to let you all know why I feel like shit. I drove up to and beyond Reservoir Lake. I always thought that the Creek came out of the lake. Wrong in my thinking. The road goes up over a ridge and down into a series of beaver ponds. Very pretty up in there. I didn't take any pictures as the area had a lot of ATV riders up in there. All kids making a nuisances of themselves. I might go up there next week with my toy and scope it all out. But in the middle of the week.
