Honestly, I have no idea what to say about this trip. Mike, Dan, Justin and I headed to the Royal Coachman Lodge for a week of fishing, and to leave my dad's ashes in some of the places he loved. Pretty clear that dad was with us the entire time, as the fishing, the experience, the place...it was all just amazing. The group at the Coachman is outstanding. All of the guides were respectful, as well as being top notch at their jobs. It is a tough thing, laying your dad to rest again, but he wanted to be up there, and I think we found some great spots and moments.
More later, but for now it is best to let a few photos tell the tale...
Photos are from a variety of cameras...the good ones are likely Justin or Dan's.
Huge thanks to my friends for going with me. I had a few tough moments up there, and simply couldn't have done this alone.
