Nothing tastes better than fresh ice caught fish . But I have a super hard time being out there on a frozen lake , in a small tent , staring at a hole drilled into the ice waiting for something to happen. Now if ya want like 100 hs drilled , I auger motor rebuilt , or maybe make a meal of those fried fish I am all about that .

We had 5 1/2 inches of snow when I got up yesterday, went for a 12 mile walk with a 32 lb backpack. Today I will take it easy and walk just 2 miles.

were zombies chasing you ?
Just kidding , congrats on getting out and enjoying the SC weather . I walked 12 miles once ,,,, bike was broke down in middle of nowhere and I " thought " I knew a short cut back to truck . Ah the dirt bike days oh and I had 33 lbs of anger once I figured out I was going to either swim or straddle a dead tree to cross stream . BTW it was first weekend of May and freaking water was just above ice temp ,,,maybe
Now for the rest of the story .........
My little brain decided the dead tree was a good idea . Exactly to the millimeter I was half way and tree broke . Into the water I went ( BTW I can't swim) and it was colder than I ever want to feel again. Good news was it was 50degrees out and sunny . I was soaked , every inch of me . I got out alive ( barely ) and crawled to dry land . Than shivering I walked in a bee line to noise I could here just over a little knoll . Thank goodness some dudes were wilderness camping and had my size clothes . Went into their tent and changed into dry clothes as they hung my clothes on make shift lines close to fire . I timidly asked them where bla bla bla was so I could get my bearings ... I was 90 degrees away from direction I thought I was walking .........Short cut not so much . They had ATV's and said they would take me to to my truck and help me load broke yz250 up. After a nice convesation and I helped tweak a Yamaha banshee carb up thye took me back to truck and I told them I got it palying yz up. I came back next day with steaks for their wood fired grill and yz again and we went riding all day . Nothung like steak and eggs for breakfast to make life long frinds . 3 out of the 4 I am still email freinds with and see one every once and a great while in person now .

Than I must lead a very adventurous life. Because this is nothing out of the normal for me. A west Virgina family put me up for the nite when I ran out of fuel ( my bad) in front of their house ( thinking it was abandoned ) . That's another good story . That showed me to appreciate each and everything I have ,,,daily .
Now onto today's staying out of trouble , cause it ain't much warmer outside .
For Monday at work .
Tonight I am making chicken ala Oscar for supper.
Oh it's gonna be a very long winter for my wife Betty that I invaded her kitchen ,,,,,again. BTW the white sushi is the Hawaiian roll . Peppered spam, cucumbers , cream cheese, celery , green onions and spicy Japanese mayo. First time making these and they are spicy yumminess. Maybe I should start my own Redneck Rails Sushi Stand . Ok gotta grocery store as I am thinking cinnamon rolls would be good for breakfast beef work tomorrow .
Pray for Betty

Livin life to its fullest daily to prevent regrets later,,, or I am a freaking loon . Either way I am good .

We sit around the house and play this ping pong game. Get the ping pong to bounce on every plate and into the glass and everyone has to chug their beer.
