My cup runneth a muck. – Part #2

To any one who might listen,

Part 3

I think the last post I completed was around June 23rd, a month ago. I’m such a slacker. Since that time the craziness has settled a bit. The wife is at a conference up in Charlotte, and she’s only had one delivery in the last week.

Set up camp about 6:30pm at The McDowell Nature Preserve on Lake Wylie on the North Carolina side of the lake. Went fishing immediately after, and caught some Bream. Kids got hungry around 9pm, so we quit our so called angling and went back to camp, lit a fire, and cooked some hot dogs. I actually burned the dogs. Read More→
