Wow, reading back over some of the last few pages was weird.
I never read them till now.
We used to be nice to each other and shit.
We encouraged each others work and helped one another.
What a bunch of fucking pussies.

It lived on the boatbuilding bench in my studio for several months, then behind the seat of my truck for the last two. While we didn't unwrap it, it should be pristine. That's why Root chose the pony express pace of my summer tour.

He was anxious to get back on the road because of his 4 hour drive. I have to drive 5 days. :coffee

Once my road season is over, I'll do a tute on mounting the flies. Then you can each make your own. :cool
