Every year around this time, MONT heads off on a little four day pilgrimage, a sabbatical where he connects with nature, does without all the mod cons and just spends his time sitting in his boat, trying to catch that elusive trout
The "dart'" covers an area of around 6,400 hectares. There are only a couple of areas where people are allowed to camp and you have to get to them by boat. There's no running water, hot or cold, no toilets and no power. Whatever you want you have to take with you.
What amuses me each year though is, while he's only away for four days, the preparation, planning and sorting through all his lures and sinkers and other camping equipment takes ten times that...but I think that's the same with lots of things. The anticipation, planning, packing and thinking about what you're going to do while you're away is an integral part of the trip.
In fact it's half the fun
