I have returned after a several year abcense. Many things going on in my real life and many changes since I was here last, among which are:
-Quit smoking (3 years in April)
-Became a grandfather (required no effort on my part)
-Joined and became Conservation Chairman for my local Izaak Walton League Chapter (again, no effort, I was asked and was agreeable. Still serve as CC for the Potomac River Smallmouth Club)
-Harassed Big_D to join us at PRSC
-Became Pro-Staff for Jackson Kayak (member of the Fishing Team)
Anyway, hope to start becoming a regular again in the fishing and paddling forums. I'll probably poke my head in the bicker and banter forum as well on occasion...but not to the extent I did before...just not worth the aggravation.
