So I’ve (my family) acquired the “Hillbilly Highsider”. Snuff is a very good friend to have. Many of you know that from experience. The workmanship in this gheenoe is most impressive. He did a fine job and I am absolutely thrilled to have it. The wheeling and dealing was intense. He got like one of my Kidney’s or some shit, but he finally relinquished her to me. All I’ve done is applied a few scratches here and there (read: applied fishy mojo, Zac). So I’ll just drop some photos here from time to time so Snuff can see that she’s being put to great use.

Most recent trip with the family chasing smallmouth in the Ozarks. Snacks and beers are important.

Shit, half my crappy cellphone pics are tiny. I'll try to fix that. But probably won't.

Search my thread from years by gone by "pimp my ride" most pics were lost in server changes, but it might give you some ideas. Gutted, platforms, rod tubes, etc.....Nice acquisition.

Not sure how I missed this one to start with. Glad to see it living on :Roll Eyes

I know all about the staring at it and sleepless night as I have with my skiff. I didn't do half of the shit you did and I still stay up at night thinking of shit.

Good on you for getting it done and making it look bad ass.
