Shortly before midnight, (about 11:30) we were sitting on our boat, 300 yards off the shore, letting the gentle night breeze drift the boat where it may. The stars were beautiful in the sky as well as the mirror smooth surface of the lake. The campfire on shore was in sight and we could hear the fun and laughter of those gathered around it, sitting in a ring. Well, out on our boat, we had a ring of our own. I asked Laura to marry me and she made me the happiest guy on the planet by saying yes.
We celebrated with a little spin around the north end of the lake in the cool night calmness, and joined the party in time for the countdown to 2006.
It was a great time out there for sure. I'm sure we'll do it again, in fact there is some thought in both our minds about a wedding at the bus sometime this year. (it's about the only way to get our families out on an airboat!)
Looking forward to the next ride, I vote for leaving the karaoke microphone in another state! :lol: I have to admit it was fun to have some good fidelity out on the hill. Good call on bringing that for the party!
Thanks for the compliments on the campsite BigD. We are glad you noticed some of the subtle thought and detail that went in to setting it up. Laura and I may have gotten there first, but it definitely was a group effort so thanks to all who helped set up camp. It was the first time I EVER built a camoflague port-o-let.
Can't wait for the next one! Feed the details so plans can be made!!!
Happy New Year everyone!
matt & laura.
