My cabin looks like a winter wonderland. The last time I was boating was Thanksgiving...

Thanksgiving is not bad for last day out. I am sure you'll be back out in February. Hang in there!

Your sons are watching you boating making tight circles in the open water. I couldn't resist that comment Jason.

The weather broke the freezing point here in Omaha yesterday, and was 35 at lunchtime today, so I got in a nice walk.  Picture of the Mighty Mo looking North from Miller's landing.  Used the Hotsy to blast all the snow and ice from the Timi, will be on the cradle by end of the day Wednesday.  New engine got a bath as well, mother nature helping me keep on schedule.  5 degrees and snow Thursday, but 48 Wednesday.

Yeah, it's a bit brisk outside.  Just a side bet Trent, I'll bet boating within 90 days.  Good Friday is March 30th, opening golf season.  Good enough to golf, then good enough to boat.  Have you done any planning for a boating/camping trip to your little slice of paradise?

Do you guys boat in the winter over there? We donít really here however I make a point of going to a local pub/bar once a month for dinner on the boat even in the winter to give it a good run. However what I canít do and I didnít realise is my glassing as itís too cold to set so looking forward to getting that done!
