    Default About time...

    We took Grem's 'leaf blower' out to Knik yesterday..we saw the normal stuff...animals, wheelers, etc.....there's a little surprise at the end, we've never seen one of these out there before...

    My camera ended up in a mud hole mid day so I didn't get much footage > Pretty sloppy editing too but you'll get the idea

    well I got my boat in today. Actually got in at the glenn hwy bridge. Nowhere to go though. Just ran the engine up.

    Yesterday the Glen Highway launch was locked up, but when I drove over the bridge today it was ice free.

    Matt, if you could get the boat into the channel you could run all the way to the old glen bridge and farther.

    cool vid bet that was an eye opener for the cub. bet it happened pretty quick. looks like your dog loves the boat, you should try and figure a way for the muffs full time for him/her.

    funny you mention that...we had a 30 minute conversation yesterday about how to get her ears covered full time....I think Grem's gears are now turning, I'm anxious to see what he comes up with...

    Sweet! But if Grem drives like that when we go to Alaxander I'm gonna smack him on the back of the head all the way!

    Not the first cub to back out of the throttle a little to soon while skipping.

    You better jump on those guys and get those impellers, I'm ready to hi the Tal!

    Curt, you'd be surprised how deceiving the video is. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. And you won't be able to smack me with a coors light in both hands.

    Judge for yourself. That was actually a very mellow run. tjm, do you concour?

    I actually really like this dog and don't want to destroy her hearing. I'm working up something to wrap around her ears for hearing protection, but she hates contraptions strapped on her head.

    Time to man up Dog, and don't forget to bring your own personal paddle. We might need it.

    We use the little soft foam ear plugs on our pooch, she tolerates them quite well.
