If you decide to have one, mark me down if there is any way I can make my schedule fit. I would love to see your place Al.

John,

Allen's place is close to ours, and I am trying to plan a get together this spring, so pack a tent and you can do both!

Just don't go for a boat ride after dark with him.....

Cool! Both times yours we wanted to make it a motorcycel trip and then something came up and took the car. I still want to make it on the MC. Some nice riding down in that area and over into LA.

I find giving him small, short duration tasks works best. Once 'Bonanza' comes on TV, he's not worth much.

Speaking of getting out of here alive..since they allow "burial at sea"...I wonder if anyone has chosen to be "buried at pond"? As much as many of us love our ponds it might be something to consider.

Hi Bob,
It has been about 7 weeks since you promised to get back with the forum members about needed upgrades to this forum software. Since photo hosting and the problems with many online photo hosting places continue, much of the past archives are less helpful due to blurred or missing photos. Having onsite hosting of pictures plus giving an option for viewing this forum in a apple/android app would be very helpful.
I think there is strong support for the members helping with the costs too.

Yes. Cremation followed by a Viking funeral.

I wonder if it adds nutrient load to the pond? grin

I actually figured a lot of people would choose to have their ashes placed in their pond they love so much.I have family members ashes that have been spread in the Gulf of Mexico near the beach where they loved to be. All our waters where we live lead to the Gulf.So the wife and I both will have our ashes put in our pond and they will eventually flow into creeks that lead to rivers here that lead into the Gulf of Mexico!! to be with loved ones!! That's our working theory anyway, Hah!

John, all ponds like potash, but I'm not sure about under cooked potash. Most that have been here know I overthink a project before I ever start. I want no issues once I move forward with a plan. I hadn't given enough thought to just doing the Viking funeral thing, and had a cold chill run through my body. If the boat had of tipped over before my body was up to temp, I could see my wife screaming and crying, with DD1 standing beside her and telling her everything was going to be ok as he threw spinnerbaits at me trying to get me back to the bank. A cremation first seemed like a better decision.

We'd need some stout tackle and some exposed treble hooks to bring you in - thinking Muskie rig with a Believer on strong braid, at the very least.

TJ, I was going to say something a smidge snarky, but you're probably right. Dave with a musky rig is better than Scott with 4# line and a 1/32oz jig.

#2 and 1/100th oz Jig.
