The obscenity filter should block any mention of heavyweight backpacking?

Ok, there's GOT to be TONS of great captions for Ike's photo above! :)

"That's the *last* time I make a drunken bet."

"Full Skin Out? I thought you said All Skin Out!"

"A guy's gotta work on his tan somehow."

"It's not really like that! The water was COLD!!!"

Ugly Hats... on 03/09/2012 14:47:20 MST Print View

Hey! What's wrong with fishing hats? Being one of those stereotypical old fisherman, I have to say that there is a reason they look like that... once again, form follows function.

Ike, does the boonie hat serve double duty as a "modesty" device?

Mike W.,

That's not an ugly hat and not what I think of as looking like an old man's fishing hat. This is:

hat

I think it's the floppy, bucket hat style. Seems like the better looking hats are ones you can't stuff in your pack. They have a stiffer brim.

@Randy

I think you just proved what I had hoped wasn't true...I guess I am just an old fisherman because I like your hat! :(

@ Brian - The pound cake is inside the dorsal fin (which doubles as my backpack).

I think socks and sandals in the Sawtooths is sweetly stylish.
That’s me up front. We’re all wearing Terra fi2’s except for the young boy; he’s wearing Teva Hurricane’s.
