Default beater update

well, I've been absent for a while as some of you may or may not know. Here's why:

I had a battle with Kidney Cancer. I won, but not without loosing a little time and ground.

I am not wheeling much, or at all, and the camping/fishing thing has gone down to day trips or the family cabin right outside of tin cup.

I go back to work in the next couple of days/weeks, and I am firing up my torches again for custom work/sculpture.

Hope everyone has been well.
a near-death experience is just god following "catch and release" regulations...

Happy to hear your doing well John. I have had to deal with the Big C in my family and know the effects can be devestating.

Great news!

The Arkansas is fishing well, Spinney has a few more weeks (maybe)..... in either case, with a win like that you deserve to be driven to the fishing spot.

I'm here and ready whenever you are. Door to river, my treat. (as long as you don't mind seeing me hook up early and often)
