Tina and I were watching the making of “Blue Collar Comedy Tour” the one with Jeff Foxworthy, Ron, Larry and Bill. They were talking about their friendships, surprised successes ect.. Then they talked about their feeling of it all coming to an end, that’s when it hit me, they said it will never be the same again. I truly feel the same at the end of our Fall Rogue season. I guide year round but our big season starts min-May. The crew comes together and we reunite with friends and guests, some guests who have shared river trips with us for up to 35 years. Speeding ahead to our last trip of the season. I always feel empty knowing I won’t spend time with my crew until next year and knowing I may not ever see some of my guests again, knowing it will never be the same again. It may be better next year but it won’t be the same.
Needless to say it’s January and I’m looking forward to seeing my crew and sharing a laugh, fish, steak and a new memory with my very special guests. 🙂
