Life After Fishing…
ahhhhhh… but those days are over!

Finally! After over 50 years of admiring them, I am the proud owner of a Corvette!
I was perusing the Internet while laid back in my recliner when I came across this beautiful beast. She was waiting for a new owner at Mataga Cadillac in Stockton, CA, just 20 miles or so away. I decided to drive on up and take a look. She was immaculate. Anyone would easily mistake this ’06 for a new one, fresh off the showroom floor. It was an unusually smooth transaction with Mataga, and the first time I offered a trade-in since the 90s as I always look to sell my cars and trucks instead of giving the “spread” to a dealership. But Mataga offered near retail for my Genesis, actually just $500 less than I paid for it, and it was a done deal. I love my Corvette!

Growing older and embracing the recliner is not all bad!
Earl has nothing on me!
My home page has a whole new look, but the fishing and the bragging stories are still HERE. (Or click on the stories at the top of the page or choose a category from the right hand column.) And many RV adventures are still on my RV site, HERE.

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.
I turned 70 the day after Christmas, and I’m surely not the same as I was a few years ago. Heck, maybe not even a few months ago. I 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 bought a little sports car.
My homepage will now become something like a Facebook page. I’ll write about the things I do, and include my RV adventures on this site.
RVing is my favorite pastime these days, and has been for some time. I love seeing the country through that huge, panoramic Class A windshield – and plan to see a lot more in the coming years.
Some of my followers may want to stop the notifications of new posts as they’ll be about RVing and other activities, and won’t be about fishing except, perhaps, for rare adventures on other people’s boats.
