Tim Soule and I duck hunted yesterday with Pete Crowell and another friend of Tim's. We stayed at the spot a little long into the tide and ended up needing to drag rather than paddle back through the mud to the landing. I'm old and in the middle of a series of evaluations of my knee, which is one of the few joints in my lower body that does not have a lot of hardware in it. Tim's not quite so old, but recovering from pneumonia.

Pete ripped my canoe across the mud flat like the Clydesdales hauling a Budweiser wagon. Then, in the time it took me to get my waders off, he had the gear loaded into my truck, the canoe on the rack, and was looking for something else to lift. It was an awe-inspiring performance. He ought to be a power lifter or a linebacker. If you ever need something large dragged or lifted, he's your man.

Unfortunately, along with all that power, he seems to be a jinx on the ducks, but that's probably just Tim.

Well, I had to do something to warm up! My feet were like ice cubes.... they paid the price for me thinking I'd be fine without toe warmers. And your canoe is MUCH lighter then mine. ... even loaded with gear.

And he’s a nice guy to boot!
