In the mean time...we went fishing at Banner Marsh Thursday. Despite what weather that would normally signal good fishing we were both blanked. Turned out to be a crumby fishing day, but getting out and enjoying the water was still great. Plus Dave let me take his baby for a test drive. It was just after sunset and the storm was minutes away so the video is a little dark, but you can get the idea.
I've started an on-line fund raising program. Would you be willing to support CWH (Clif Wants a Hobie) charities? A pledge of $300 will get you all the benefits of a gold member, which includes a picture of me enjoying my new kayak and letter of appreciation (including certificate of authenticity). $600 gets you platinum status, which includes 90% of the gold benefits plus a test drive (on the water closest to my home).
