It made me think about my Cardinals hat and how long I've had it. The hat was a gift for a very specific event in my life so I can undoubtedly say, as of today, it is seven years old. Let's dig into the Lunker Hunt archives and see where it's been...ooo I'm so excited.
|2006 - Lunkerhunt's first post EVAR, hat approximately 2 years old at this point|
|2006 - With my favorite hat and my wife's shirt|
|2007 - Starting to fade|
|2008 - Maybe a string hanging from the bill?|
|2008 - The bill is starting to rip. Looks like I got some paint on it too.|
|2009 - Four months later, it's really going to hell. 5 years old now|
|2009 - Now it's a challenge|
|2009 - From "Bad" to "Oh, holy hell!"|
|2010 - Vanilla is added to Deet for bouquet unlike anything else.|
|2010 - I'm drunk in this picture|
|2010 - My hat's last known appearance on Lunker Hunt.|
I used to do more than fish in that hat but these days it's doubled it's weight due to layers of deet, grease, fish slime and vanilla body spray. The missus won't even touch it and I can't wash it; another spin cycle is bound to ruin it. The only solution is to become a two hat man:
|2011 - Fishing hat and his one year old little brother.|
I wonder what adventures my fishing hat will see this year...
