Almost every trip we forget something, but nothing major. I get this feeling in my gut when we are pulling out of the drive way, like I know we have forgotten something. Last trip it was the plastic buckets, the ubiquitous buckets we use for everything: sitting on while popping shrimp heads, piss pot, deck wash down, shrimp and fish storage, etc, etc. We were about half way to Whittier when I remember, what to do. Luck has it we were able to pick up two 4 gallon pails from the stores at Girdwood.
I put the 2hp Honda onboard for the dink. but had forgotten to include the outboard mount. Fortunately we didn’t really need the motor, but it’s just one more item I need to put on my ever expanding boat list.
Nothing takes the place of a comprehensive easy to find list, I should laminate one and hang it on the dash of my truck.
On a side note, I did find a new ride last weekend>
