2014 update...been making boats. Kayak for the wife, canoe for myself, got a canoe order from a customer to make once the first canoe gets out of the shop, probably make a kids kayak this fall with my older son (age 8).
Still living in Webster, joining back up with Ski Patrol at Bristol Mountain, taking the refresher course now to get my certification re-activated.
Completed a 50-mile backpack trip around Cranberry Lake this summer, so that was exciting, so far that was my only time in the woods this year, so kind of disappointing there. With the ski patrol course I have no free weekends until November so doubtful I will get in another trip.
