Topic: Adventure Bound
Cooler is packed, canoes, kayak, paddling gear, fishing and camping equipment are all loaded. Early tomorrow morning I'm off with two friends to spend a week floating and fishing streams in Arkansas. We're starting off with a 3-day float on the Buffalo River before meeting up with nationally known wildlife artist Al Agnew and floating a few of his favorite small gems in our pursuit of smallmouth bass.
I've got a guitar packed in a dry bag and will be playing every evening along with my old paddling buddy John K Victor, recently retired and one of the finest harmonica players you've ever heard and well-known throughout southern Ohio as an artist and musician. My old work pal and fishing buddy Doug Davis will be along too.
Some sweet padding, great scenery and the chance to play music every evening around creek-side campfires with close friends.......... this retirement gig is a rough life !!
Don't know if I'll be able to get any sleep tonight - I feel like an 8-year old on Christmas eve.
