Jun 15, 2013 - Warmin' Up

Yesterday was warmer and SUNNY.....what? Yes, the sun was out all day. It was a little too windy to be really comfortable, but it was a great change from what we have been having. Weather today is supposed to be spectacular. Friday, the second day I put the same six guys out in three boats. Not so much the best boat operators you ever saw, but no real damage...to the boats, anyway. When they got back two of them had to CARRY a third guy off the dock.

Jun 11, 2013 - Making the best of it

Well of course it was raining cats and dogs when we woke up this morning. Action was required...a plan was needed. We (I) had seen an article in a magazine about a super cool store in Evansville, Vermont. It had been around forever, it had everything under the sun, it was gigantic....we (I) decided we had to go there. First, for strength, Pathfinder lit a burner on the stovetop, and while the rain raged outside of our door he scrambled two eggs like eggs have never been scrambled before...they were GREAT. And this was the first time the...
