I didn't realize Nolan had matching pants to go with that jacket... the fly-less fishing escapade on the shooties as told by Dan is still one of my top 5's

An old friend and I used to duck hunt every Christmas Eve. I remember the mild anxiety of not knowing if we would make it back for family traditions. We always did. And we always had big fun.

Sadly, the tradition died and until I read this, the memory died as well. Have to reach out to an old friend now.
I think a duck hunt out of your strip woodie is In order then. Speaking of, dying for an update soon.

Sanding the interior sucked. I took a month or two break to do a little of the fishings and huntings, but am back on it. The interior is sanded and waiting on a warm weather day for fiberglassing. In Lowsyanna, that can happen any month of the years, so I'm now just watching the 10 day forecast. Hope to bump the progress thread in the next few weeks.

Hows the fishing been down there this year Ron? I think about it a lot. Those big bulls fight like a hippo on bath salts.

I seriously cringe a little bit when you reference all the sanding. I get a little ptsd and my sanding hand starts to get the shakes one gets after holding a random orbital sander going full tilt like a peterbilt for hours. But it’s worth it.
