    A Constitutionally Compliant President

    And to think the eye candy on his arm ain't half bad either. ;) I really like the idea that he is doing his job for $1, that alone speaks volumes as to who's side he is on.

    I'm just hoping when they come to get mine the poor sap doesn't burn his hand on the barrel when he reaches out to take it!

    Costa Rica Tarpon Fishing

    Couldn't agree more with you Chuck. We catch and release all the tarpon we catch, I understand they are not that good to eat anyway. A few facts on tarpon, the main reason you mostly catch tarpon that are around the 80 pound range is because that is as big as the male tarpon gets. The females...

    Small Strip Canoe Plans?

    I have a friend that is wanting a 6-7 foot cedar strip canoe. He has a large landscaped pond in his back yard and wants a small canoe built to put water plants in. He also wants to create some sort of bulk head in it to allow the plants to be watered from the pond. Anyone have any ideas? A...

    Costa Rica Tarpon Fishing

    OUCH! The hook removal was our guides other service. By the last day I was taping up my fingers I set the hook twice on a big one just about the same time he decided to run. That line will burn right through the skin. :o That ratio is about right. It's all about not having slack in the...

    Costa Rica Tarpon Fishing

    Massasauga Provincial Park

    Thanks for sharing Mary. I thought I would offer insight to the broken eggs. I've been told that you can pre-boil the eggs prior to a trip, about 1 min as I recall. Not cooking them but only sealing the outer layer making the shell harder and creating a seal. Never tried it myself as I always...

    Tioga Falls

    Back in late April I decided to take a day hike and see Tioga Falls. Located, on the Fort Knox compound near Ft Knox KY, which is open to the simple people like myself, to enjoy. Even in the pouring rain it was a trip worthy of a visit and I’m planning to return to capture the Fall colors...

    Yessiree, took a little fishing trip this week.

    Never saw a single bear, even ask about them and the locals acted as if they hadn't either. Had it been legal we could have maxed out or daily limit in that stream each day and spent those cold rainy days in a warm bar. :) I hooked into a nice steelhead our last day. It popped out of the...
