Pogo here is mine:
I had a great time amongst good people and am looking forward to next year. Thank You for putting this on Gerald. There is some great scenery in that park.
The morning started off nice but sone the weather detoriated. As we gathered the rain soon started and put us all back in our vehicles.
HirschHunter riding the strom out.
The rain finally settled down and everyone started gathering to meet and look all the boats over.
The weather did little to dampen everyone's spirits. Even though it was the first time for alot of us to meet face to face, it seemed as if this was a gathering of old friends. Seashell paddled her new boat and seemed to take right to it.
She also showed her Dad (Strider) how to paddle with a little race. (Sorry but I had to post this Kim)
It was nice to be able to a face with some names. ( if I screw any names up. I am Sorry)
L to R: Gerald, Pogo, Hirschhunter, rodloos, hannah
Pogo's new and nice canoe.
One of Geralds very nice creations
Another of gerald's great boats
And Seashells new Pirogue.
I had eagerly been anticipateing Strider's cooking skills all day, so when it was time to head over to Gerald's campsite I went with great enthusiasim. Sorry but I did not get a picture of the meal, but I was too busy eating it. After enjoying a great meal we all settled in around the fire to enjoy some conversation about building,paddling fishing and camping.
(L to R) Strider, Gerald, Pogo, Turner, Rodloos
You can take fisherman to a boat show, but you can't keep'em from fishing. Turner and Stider with a couple of nice Sunfish.
Seashell and Hannah seemed to hit it off pretty well and were gone exploring most of the time but keet us entertained while around. Those S'Mores can real messy.
All too soon it was time for everyone to start heading for their own camps a little shut eye. Seashell called this morning with a invite for breakfast Tacos. Here is Strider working his majic with Breakfast.
After a long Breakfast it was time to break camps and head for home. Hannah's boat (soon to be replaced with a wooden craft), Seashell's new boat and my old tub loaded for the ride South.
Again I had an extremely good time, despite the weather and I am eagerly looking forward to the next TKFBBR. Thanks again Gerald for sponsoring this event and this forum.
One more thing. Gerlad and I figured out what I am going to build for my daughter. Stay tuned.........
