I want to say a big thanks to Radtech Tim for hosting a great time for me and the Missus I have never been to Mack's before and Tim's trip got me rolling. The wife and I spent 4 days the prior weekend and had a great time, did some exploring etc. The really cool part about Area 2b is that we always had the place to ourselves!

Buster and I made it back for the big ride and feast this past weekend. Here are some of my pics, starting with the only under 50 boat (Marshal's crew)!

One of the really cool things that caught my eye at Mack's was the concrete work around the family fire pit. It really speaks to generations working the same property. I have a bunch of similar tools that I inherited from my grandfathers. With a shop full of hydraulic, air and cordless tools it is hard to imagine having to use these old school tools again. This seems like a great way to pay tribute to the folks that used to work way harder than we have to these days.

If you haven't seen this, here's a link to Mutual of Omaha's show they did with Tom Shirley. I've watched it many times

So sorry I missed it this year, but I couldn't get away. Sure looks like you had a great time and that table full of food is outta hand. Good to hear you made it back home without incident.

We all know these shows are made for TV under a controlled situation, but in Tom's book, he talks about how they released the bear for filming, and it was all staged. What he says wasn't staged was when Jim lost control of the rope, and the bear charged Marlin, he says that part was very real. It's a great video, and his book is a great read.
