I've had the privilege of driving to visit, paddle, and camp with some of the guys on the forum. Your rocking chairs and, as I said, your Grandfatherliness, are interesting. My Granddaughter was a central point in my Life for three years; now she's back with her Dad and Mom.
I'm in central, lower Michigan, East Lansing (home of the Spartans). I've traveled to Texas & paddled with Ronnie Smith, Louisiana and paddled with Joey Dupre', Jules Lambert, Keith Felder, and Keith Davis, and to Florida to paddle with Chuck Littleton, Jimmie Dorazio, Harry McDonald, and Bill Logan. (Few to none of them qualify as sane.) I've been on a lot of trips around Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Canada too, but those are some with forum members.
Just wondering, that's all. Not interested in address or phone number, not a stalker.
