Night Moves

I woke last night to the sound of thunder
How far off I sat and wondered
Started humming a song from 1962
Ain't it funny how the night moves
When you just don't seem to have as much to lose
Strange how the night moves
With autumn closing in...

West Bound and Down

I had to get out of town. Don't get me wrong, WNY has been good to me. I enjoy the time I have spent out here. That being said, you don't live out west for a decade and not gain an affinity for the trout, the scenery and the friends. So I decided to hop on a plane and get out of Nickel City for a spell. 

My favorite place on Earth. Some rivers simply burn a spot your soul that you can't help but to be love. This place literally hurts to think about, as it's not a place I can simply drive over to anymore. While the distance has became a reality, I know it will always be there for me.

Some things in life are more important than any explanation you can explain to people that don't do what we do. I got back to my office after this trip and my boss asked me how my trip was... I just said, "Good"... and left it at that...

Updated... New Toy...

So... the old jon boat I got a while back ended up turning into a dumpster fire of a situation. The guy that sold it to me ended up not having a title. So I had to go to his house twice to return the boat. The first time, it was heated and he refused to take my money back.

Eventually, with the help of the court system, I got my money back. It must have been fate, as this gem showed up right after. It is a duck boat designed by Scott Boats out of Ontario. Similar to a Towee boat out of Wisconsin, just without all of the bells and whistles.

So far, I have had two people standing and casting flies out of it. I have even shot guns out of it. It's extremely stable for a skinny boat. It also pushes 20mph with the little Merc I put on it. Enough to make your butt pucker a little bit.

Life is good.
