Sorry I am not much of a fan of phone calls. It would be fun to have you come out for a weekend of fishing and floating. Problem is I am not sure what the schedule is yet. I will have a better idea what it will look like in a couple of months. How early in advance will you need to know? We will probably be able to give you a months notice but that won't be until April or so. We have our second kid (girl this time) due end of March. Keep in touch.
Took the boat out yesterday fully equipped. Pretty nice and comfortable. If you come out you can stay in my basement bedroom. It will be a month or so before I have any free time though. You should plan on middle of next summer.
I just talked with Tim!! Sounds like he is doing well. Same charming personality as always. You in NYC again? I am thinking about looking into jobs back in St. Paul so the kid can be near his grandparents. We will have to go bass or muskie fishing.
