What's the worst part of getting up early?

I totally forgot to vent about this...

What's the worst part of getting up early??

Going out to your car at 0-dark-hundred to get on the road for a just-after-sunrise start to salmon/steelhead angling and finding your battery dead. Ugh.

Go back inside, get out the charger because it's too early for anyone else around to be up and because for some reason your car won't take a jump and has to actually be charged (I blame zee Germans), hook up the charger to the battery, then go waste 45 minutes to get enough charge to start the car.  Then finally get on the road and miss that key 45 minutes of just after sunrise angling.

And since I didn't catch anything I assume that's the only 45 minutes of the day you can!

Is Christmas here yet?

I'm in need of some new gear, but being so close to xmas I also feel the need to leave it be so that someone who loves me enough can replace my ridiculously worn waders.

And apologies for my recent delinquency in not posting for seemingly forever. I have no idea how everyone out there has been managing without me!
