The Numbers Game

We had the kind of weekend that most folks only see in brochures.

Here at Neil Creek we only quantify a few things in integer form, like hours left in the fishing day, beers needed to get from A to B, gallons of fuel for same...important things. Most of the time, Quantities are registered in non-specific terms, i.e. "A few"..."a Bunch"..."an Assload"...and so on.

This weekend we counted a few things to go along with the pictures below. Some numbers are approximate, because as we pointed out previously, we only count important things.
