TCM: Where are some of your favorite places to truck camp?
Gary: There are a number of rivers I like to fish at starting with the south fork of the Eel River, the Mad, the Vandusen, Red Wood creek, and the Smith River. In Southern Oregon, I like the Chetco a lot. The Smith and the Chetco are my favorites.
TCM: Will you go back to the Smith River to camp?
Gary: Absolutely! I’m just not going to camp on the gravel bar. I’m going to camp on high ground.
TCM: Is there anything that we didn’t ask you that you’d like to add to your interview?
Gary: I just turned 69 and because of an enlarged prostate, I woke up at 4 AM to go to the bathroom. If I had slept until seven, I wouldn’t have gotten out.
TCM: Here’s to enlarged prostates!
