hey doooods.. its been 1 yr since i left good ole Ohio.. i can honestly say that i missed you all(except during the snowstorms ).. what have I been up to?? lets see, i went to china.. and hungout with some cool folks there for abit.. then i went up to the northern part of thailand for work.. spend several days up there, and it was GREAT!! then, i drove up to meet another Ohioian who decides to retired in Thailand.. he used to live several doors down on the same block as me in columbus german village. Now i check on the ole man once in awhile.. he lives in a really nice area.. really hilly and very close to the river.. of course, i had to goto the river to check it out.. and here's my dream piece of property.. right on the reservoir that holds lots of good sized fish.. my land would be from the left side just after the hill, all the way to the right (ending somewhere in the middle of the hill you see on the right).. i'm talking the owner into selling it to me right now.. she is doing nothing with it at the moment except growing wildflowers.. apart from working, i have been doing absolutely nothing fishing wise.. i hope this dumb trend will change this year.. i'm thinkin i forget how to tie knots now too.. I hope you all have a great coming year..
