    My wifes' Father was still with us in 2000. He lived in a small Illinois community of about 30,000 people. He loved to fish and he spent many years of his life crafting his passion on the Mississippi River. While we lived back there you could find us any given weekend proving which one of us made better bait. Mother and I decided to surprize him with a visit. We drove the 1951 miles from here to her fathers in 3 days. The fourth day we were fishing on a humid June day.
    The bite was on. Between my wife, my Father-in-law, my wife's uncle, and myself we caught 48 Channel, 4 Blues, 2 Flatheads, from two seperate boats. We kept 6 of the channels to fry and everyone else went back in the water. The next morning, hit the water at 6:30 AM and pounded them all day with the exact same totals. We went back to his house the next morning. I've never had that happen before or since, but I'll never forget how much fun we had doing it.

    When I got back from my second tour in Iraq, I saw my youngest son who was 6 months old when I left. I had arranged to take leave upon returning home. My mom and my brother also visited from Ohio. It was the best leave ever and, we didnt fish once! Just food, family and, BEER!

    I have 2 favorite vacations the first would be when I was stationed on ship and flew home from Egypt to suprise my Parents at the Lake when they used to get a cabin there, my Dad of course cried (I get that from him) and it really suprised my Mom. I had some gifts from Saudi Arabia for them (basicly Gold).

    The 2nd Favorite would be my Honeymoon for obvious reasons, but also it was great to get away from everyone (we rented a houseboat at Dale Hollow Lake in TN). We were able to get totally away from everyone and have a great time touring the Lake.
