Welcome to the forum! Thanks for the pictures, and for initiating the lively debate. You don't work for that website, do you? I think this violates some kind of spamming rule on this forum...just wondering.

Ummm, yeah... I do that all the time. And sometimes I find webcams from the Sierra and check 'em out once in a while when I take mini breaks from work ... helps keep me motivated, seeing what it looks like at that instant in a mountain area I've been to, helping take me back to that spot :)

The funny thing (to me) about this thread is that I started out asking flyfishinpacker about his motivation for listening to music in the wilderness. Then the "lively debate" ensued. Then, that made me think about it more, and I remembered that when I spent a summer backpacking & camping alone in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, when I was 17, I too brought along electronics. Though in those days it was a little transistor radio :). I definitely didn't play music out in the open, and didn't listen while I was hiking - that's definitely not my thing, then or now, ... but I did listen to it with a little earphone, in my tent, in the evening before going to sleep (and on rainy days when I didn't feel like hiking).

These days I don't carry so much as a Nano or Shuffle with me backpacking, at least in summer. Maybe that'll change when I go out in the winter, since the nights are so long.

Hmmm, as they say, "the more things change, the more they stay the same". :)

Swimming, fishing, wandering, photographin' that looks like the life. I've used music on the trail before, my brother's Tupac tape (hey it was the nineties). I just kinda thought it was funny to be meandering down to Green Creek while listening to rap music through my earphones. Of all the photos, im just in awe of how crisp the Yanks cap was! I always wear my Kens Sporting Goods hat which has become bleached and grimy but is my good luck charm.

FFP: What rod where you packing in?

Hello Flyfishinpacker-

Not sure exactly where that is but, like all of the sierra, its gorgeous! Speaking of gorgeous - GREAT JOB with that 'bow! I was interested in that electronics site but, theres an error in the link - wondered if you could please repost that? Thanks and Happy Fishing!
