Gaby does AWESOME work.

Very interesting. What are the approximate dimensions of this piece? What does he charge for something like this?

Although I have not heard it from Makobob as yet, it looks like he will not be making the trip this year. I just wanted to assure everyone that was planning to come down that I am still planning on seeing as many as possible make it down and I'll be fishing daily and hope you all can join me.

Yesterday's catch from the tin boat.

Bob wishing the best. Cant imagine anyone more positive which is the key to healing. Youre a good role model man.

Rossman in the immortaliZed words of greggo "you suck green donkey di*$!" I bet the adrenaline was going solo with that skinny at the gunnels.

Re shopping the pix. Too bad he cant start the upload before the image is even taken much less processed.

But I'm glad I didn't, bone on bone, with time the pain eventually went away, now it's just numb, and I need two different sizes shoes and it causes me to walk bull legged. Affecting my hip. Falling off a roof breaking my tibia probably didn't help either.

Bob, I hope you are doing well. You have to stop by at the restaurant on your way back from Mako Villa.

Getting close to the kick-off day for Thanksgiving at Rossman's casita.

I'm curious about how many are still a solid "go" for this trip.

I am leaving early Saturday morning and will cross at Tecate, head through San Felipe and plan on stopping at either Gonzaga or camp at the hotsprings campground at Puertocitos.

So maybe this is a bit of a roll call... who's still in?
