Great Day Fishing

Today's fishing trip was the best I've had so far. The weather was beautiful, we had a good crew and we even caught some fish!
We ran into the biggest bird pile I've ever seen. Unfortunately, our lines got tangled a couple of times but we managed to catch an Aku and a Mahi-Mahi. The Aku put up quite the fight and the Mahi-Mahi jumped out of the water, it was quite the display. Fingers crossed for next time.


Newest Adventure

A few years ago in Montana, I got the opportunity to try wake boarding. I instantly loved it even though after the first time I tried it I literally felt like someone beat me about the shoulders and upper back with a baseball bat. I liked it so much that I bought my own boat to ensure that I could go whenever I wanted.

When I left to come to Kwaj I sold my boat, along with everything else I owned and I've been wanting to wakeboard since I got out here. There aren't a whole lot of people that wakeboard here. A handful compared to the number that fish and dive and sail.

Today, after a year and two months I finally go to go. It wasn't the best day, we were only on the water for a short amount of time. The water was very rough. It was like trying to ride a bucking bronco pretty much and I tweaked my back. But hey, I got to go and I had fun anyway! I plan to go more from now on. I guess the weather will start cooperating more in about a month or so.

About the only thing I haven't tried so far is diving. I'm still thinking about it....


Wish Us Luck!

The spring bowling league starts up next week. My team and I are excited. This will be the third bowling season for me since I've been on Kwaj and it's a lot of fun. There is quite a turnout every "season" too.

One of our resident bowling afficianados took it upon himself to push for getting the bowling alley back into working condition and has done a remarkable job. As with most things around here if it's not being used by the majority it tends to get neglected (read: unfunded).

The first bowling season I participated in, two of the eight lanes didn't work at all, three of the remaining ones were having some difficulty but we got by with lots of help from the manual pinsetters. But with all of his hard work and encouragement(and good management of our dues) all eight lanes are now working pretty darn well.

Thanks Bob!
