I don’t fakebook. FFIM is the extent of my social media. Have enough vises and vices. Would love to see photos though. Sixteen months, three weeks and two days and I leave this work world and then I can fish when I want to. Or when my wife allows me to. And one thing will be partaking in events like CFR.

What a blast - wouldn't miss it for the world (as long as you'll have me back)!

This phrase always comes up and it makes me laugh; "These guys and ladies gave up their weekend..." The way I see it, I gave up nothing and gained everything. The sports think we are teaching them when it's actually the reverse. I learn so much about strength and perspective that I am the one that benefits as much as anyone. Those ladies are, at the risk of using a WAY overused word, amazing. They are truly inspirational.

Thanks to all for a truly great event - it is one of my lifes "reset buttons". Great people, great event, cell phone didn't ring once all weekend - THANK YOU!!!!!!

What an awesome day! Craig and I got teamed up with two amazing women, who were thrilled to throw on a pack and walk a little further to get to to one of the prettiest spots in Maine. They did their part and were rewarded by a lot of fish for their efforts. So much fun!
