The outdoors revitalize my being no matter the activity and even if only for a moment.
Being outdoors reminds me of what is most important; therefore, I long most days to be in the great outdoors.

Naming of the boat. Meet "Gene".

Posted by Picasa
The boat we got is a 1996 Crestliner Fishhawk 16sc, so it is a 16 footer. It has a 40 horse Mercury that is oil injected, a foot control trolling motor, a marine radio, fishfinder, steering counsel, and a bimini top. When I saw it, I immediately wanted to get it and Lori agreed as well(she was just happy that it wasn't a motorcycle). It had enough room for the family, priced right and deep enough that Caleb wasn't going to fall out. Lori said it should be named, "Bart's Indulgence", but I think it should be named "Generation" for the next generation of fishermen we are raising. Or we could call it "Gene", short for generation. Lori said she is going to call her "Genie", because it is granting my wishes. Either way, I'm glad we have it. I think I'm going to stick with "Gene" short for Generation. The name is actually inspired by a man who paddled past us in the back waters while fishing. He said, "I see you're raising the next generation of great fishermen". So meet "Gene".
