I really cant take this right now. When is 2006 going to be over with?

Jim, we really love you, wherever you might be.

We really, really love you.

I just hope he's huddled up on the bank, somewhere. Erickson... cut this out, man. You are killing us. :(

Here's one of those "famous" hugs you used to always ask for. How I wish I could give you one, right now.

We fished the NF and as we were leaving this afternoon around 4 there was quite a bunch of sheriffs staging at the hatchery, they had a few rafts and looked like they were going to be doing a rescue.

I do not know any more than what has been said. I will post as soon as I know more. I have had several emails asking. The last word I got, it did not look good, but damm that Jim, you never know. He might be seating on the bank some where trying to decide what kind of a story to tell us. You can bet it will be a g ood one. If he does not make it, you can bet he will have a hell of a story to tell St. Peter at the golden gates. Were with you Jim.

how far down was he when he flipped ?? that area is very accesible at least and I would think a watter escue would be very fast..I really hope all is ok and we just havent heard hopefully he is sitting some place warm drinking some coffee talking about one heck of a story. he is a great guy and hopefully someone will post soon to tell us all is well.. I'll be waiting with the rest of you......

I don't personally know Jim, but he shares the same love of the outdoors as we all do. Praying for his safe return and those in the raft with him :pray: :pray:
