I had a pretty eventful 2022 with family and friends. Beavs thread is a tough act to follow , but I'm going to give it a shot. Several of these pics have been on bs already , but quite a few will be making their debut.

In August I headed to South Africa for a great trip with Ken Moody. You can see the bush blind that was built at the water hole. I had a bunch of days in trying to get an arrow in a cape buffalo. A short time into our first sit in this blind it finally happened.

The thing on wheels is a baboon trap built on an old wagon frame.

Over Christmas break Cody and a friend planned a trip to Florida. A couple 18 year old boys first adventure, kinda on their own. I was able to help with driving duties to get them there with work related transportation back home. They were there for 4 days with our boat on their own. I flew back down on New Years eve to help with the return drive. But since I was there with a bit of time we spent New Years eve night In the Everglades.

Meant to ask on your boat project thread, what are those things you added to the back of the transom? Are those just for extra stability?

They are float pods, they increase the floatation of the boat. Either to make it sit higher in the water or carry more weight.

I figured they were just extra storage for the bodies of the guys that didn’t wipe their feet, before getting in the boat, Gene.
