2014-1-18a morning at Giddings, TX WalmartRVing is my favorite pastime these days, even though I actually spend most of my time in the recliner at home. I love seeing the country through that huge, panoramic Class A windshield – and plan to see a lot more in the coming years.

My family and friends are still shaking their heads at my recent sale of yet another boat and pickup. I surely have been through a bunch of boats and trucks in the past few years, but THIS time I can say with certainty that I’ve sold the last boat.

Now in my 70s, I’ve found that the work involved in boating and fishing just wasn’t much fun anymore, to say nothing of the endless fishing regulations with which Kalifornistan has strangled much of the fun out of the sport. So I sold the boat and the truck and really, I promise, this was the last time!


I’ve often said that one of the key Truths of Life is knowing your place in the grand scheme of things. Earl (from the comic strip Pickles) is a wise old mentor for guys my age, and I’ve learned a lot from him…

    Dale, we miss you and your great reports on the Sniffer but are happy to see you have found a couple new passions to keep you busy

  2. FishWisher says:

    Hi Darren – Yes, I’m still having a good time but I miss the boat if only to admire her just sitting on the trailer. But with the new regs for sturgeon, etc. I can’t say I miss the fishing all that much. The do-gooders have pretty much ruined it. Good luck to you out there and thanks for the visit.

    Dale! RV adventures and discussion are welcome at rec.boats also! We’re an open minded crowd over there, if we can keep folks off politics and religion!

    Thanks for the visit, Tim and John. If I ever have another fishing report, maybe from fishing with a friend, I’ll report it as usual. I didn’t know RVing was a topic there, but if I see some RV discussion, I’ll join in. And. I’ll drop in from time to time to see if there’s a boat thread I can comment on. – Dale

    I’ll miss the fish stories Dale, but enjoy lifes next adventure. Rving is another great relaxing hobby. PS: Love that car!

  7. FishWisher says:

    Thanks for the visit, Fred. I miss living the stories, too. But I don’t miss the wind, the work, the heat, the cold… and I find none of that here in my recliner! But it does get a bit boring. I’ve done quite a bit of RVing lately and more planned soon. I love driving and seeing the country.

    Wish I’d known of your site when I bought my last anchor. Stop in for another visit anytime.

    -Dale
