New Horizons

I have had a lot going on for the past few months, but I went on a three day kayak trip down the Big Black River with my buddy Brennan earlier this week. I built a small pirogue last summer, and Brennan bought it from me. He ended up taking the pirogue on the trip. Seeing a boat that I built functioning, coupled with the wilderness of the Big Black, got the Tiki juices flowing! I had lost sight a bit, I think, of what this boat is being built for, but now I have regained full awareness. I'm working my ass off now to get Beto up and running, so the blog will be getting updated much much more often from now on.
