    Headin to warm - sunny Florida Tuesday!
    The past two weeks have been an adventure out here in the hills. Now I see that three more storm fronts are making their way here again starting next week! What a heck of a snow year this has been.....

    The three storms we have had the past two weeks have left us with 81" of accumulated snowfall here at the house. I'm actually tired of plowing!!

    But the good news is that we are heading to our FL winter hangout January 9 and will be there for almost four months of fishing, beaching, tanning, working and relaxing!

    While driving through south Georgia a few days ago, my wife commented that due to all the traffic back-ups on the interstate that Florida must be overflowing. A suggestion was made that we winter in upstate NY. The weather is better that usual and all the people are in Florida.

    It is 70 here in NYC today. We were supposed to have a cubscout winter campout & ski trip next weekend - both cancelled because of warm weather.

    Down in Arizona, we had sand last night. Predicted to have more tomorrow. Between the wind and the sand it's not a pleasant winter, not warm enough you know.

    We are hoping it warms up to the 100's soon.

    Well back to shoveling sand into another pile.

    Wow - piles to shovel Allen?? Ouch. I think I'd rather plow snow than sand.

    As for Georgia traffic being backed up from traffic to Florida, I'm sure that's true. All of us snowbirds are headed south to enrich the FL economy for a few months! We take a different route that will take us through MO, then TN, a little GA and then catch 75 north of FL and drop down. Last year it was light traffic on the northern route - so hope this year is the same.

    My major plans are to be out learning the back bay waters of Charlotte harbor. Snook, Redfish, Spanish Mac, Amber Jack, Jack Crevalle, Trout, Tarpon, Cobia, and on and on. My goal is to catch every species this year - so hope to hit my goal. God knows I'll give it 110% effort!

    Yep Eric. It hapened up on Berthoud pass, which is a very high mountain pass out here (about 13,000 elevation). No one was injured which is fortunate. We have lots of avalanches each winter - but they are generally in isolated wilderness areas in the hight mountains.

    This has already been an unbelievable snow year both in the mountains and on the eastern plains - so I'm ready for Florida and wearing shorts and a tee shirt for a few months. : - )

    Alan,

    Just finished preasure cleaning the pro line getting her ready for usage again. Sitting on the trailer got her deck a bit dirty...

    Cranked up the Yamaha 250 and she's purring to go ... maybe this time we can hook up and do some offshore fishing. You'll be down 4 months, good stuff, maybe plan a weekend in islamorada or some point midway...hate to trailer her Charlotte...

    Andy,

    I look forward to it. Sorry we couldn't hook up when I was there in November but had a lot to do in Orlando (meeting with the Central Fl gang) and Boca Raton (meeting with our diabetic supply partners) so couldn't squeeze in another trip in the short time we were there.

    But THIS time - we have four great months. I'll hook up with you (pun intended) for sure - both in your neck of the woods, and then you can come up to my place and we'll use my boat. It's on a slip in the PG marina - so we're good to go in either location!!

    I look forward to it my friend.

    Alan

    Alan,

    You still heading through Nashville?

    Give me a call if so...perhaps you can stop over here for dinner and a hockey game (although I think you would hit here Thursday and the hockey is Friday)

    Either way, our wishes for a safe trip to you!

    Matt - made it through Nashville about 2 this afternoon but because we left a day late we did not have time to stop. I'll see you in LV though my friend. I believe we owe each other a drink?

    Danny, thanks - I N-E-E-D this change of pace for a bit. Things have ben going crazy with the biz and I am ready to veg for a while. Anytime you want to fly down to Ft Myers and spend a few days you are welcomed to be our guest. You and I can do some fishing and watch the suset over the harbor with drink in hand. Stay Warm !

    Alan, you and UncleScooter sure need to hook up. It seems like you two are all over the country. Scooter is going to TX in his RV.

    Matt - old age?? Are we going to regress to post ARC seminar days last August by insulting me as being an old fart again? Is that how you want to play it?? Huh - well, is it? What's the matter? Cat got your tongue?

    I don't fault you for being too young to be experienced!!

    Actually I did think of you as we were driving through and wished that we could hook up, but I was really pressed for time. I even spent a moment telling my wife who "Matt" is and how you were the young whipper snapper who spent all night clubbing with me in Chicago, and how you were 3 hours late for class the next morning - while I collected a cool $5 from Andy for being "right on time" which is a common trait we more "matured" business types share. :P

    Looking forward to seeing you in LV MM!!

    Alan

    Yep - the 17th is a go Scoot!! Ellen and I spent 4 hours cleaning the boat today and they are putting it in the water for us tomorrow. Everything has checked out with the mechanic - so the "Slush Puppie" is ready to cast off and set a course for open waters.

    C'Ya the 17th ol buddy!

    Not so Matt... You also know that I am a talented free throw shooter. I shut down those two boys from TN and AL in a best of ten at 3:30 am!!

    Something else you have on me too!! You and Danny had to keep sending the young women away that were following me all night!! I thank you for that, just wondered why you didn't come back after you "personally" escorted those twins out the door, but I will always be in your debt for looking out for my back side.

    Where's the snow?
    Well, we've been here in lovely Punta Gorda FL since Friday afternoon and it has yet to snow!! So this is what life is like without a snow plow eh? I could get use to this for 4 months a year........

    Today I am getting the boat into the water and getting it on a slip (for the non seagoing crowd a slip is a "dock") for the season. Got the "Slush Puppie" cleaned up yesterday, and today we'll take her for a maiden spin - then Monday is my orientation with the Harbor Master and then I'll get her set up for back bay fishing and load the gear.

    Nice to be here, sitting on the lanai and typing this in my shorts and tee shirt while I watch gulls, pelicans and other birds hitting the water to retrieve today's breakfast. I talked to my two oldest sons, Zach and Jeremy yesterday and the overnight lows at their homes in CO were - 5 to - 8 Thursday night, so I'm happy to be in the tropics of S. FL for the next four months. Ahhh - a toast to warm air, oceans and working in bare feet!!
