    Default My first summer not guiding...

    Wow. This had been a crazy ride for me and my family. I have been able to take the summer off from guiding and work on rebuilding a family. What a blessing.
    So I remarried. A retired veteran of the US Air Force, never hunted, a vegetarian, no kids. Man, she has been an angel, God knew what he was doing. Well, she starts helping with the bear bait.....hmmmm letís watch your bear hunting video....hmmmm maybe I wanna shoot one.....whaaaa?? Ya well. This summer was a year of firsts.
    First second marriage, my oldest first bear second oldest first bear wifeís first bear my first triple on bears in one night first personal bait station first running a jet boat aground etc.
    well, itís not over yet but figured Iíd post some pics. A lot of people in here are part of the blessing for my family, still no thank you words are strong enough. So Iíll just show you part of what you have done for our family.

    Sometimes you just have to back up and regroup. Looks like you had a great summer. Family time is wonderful and enriching. Congratulation on everything.

    Hillary moved to NY and I moved out.
