Hey Stouff,
Cool pics of the show. AKbrett, his son Patirck and I met this morning at about 9:30 at the north end of the tent. Brett is a great guy and I'm glad to have met him. He's got a super fine hunting trip planned for Kodiak Bears this fall. Wish I could tag along. I also kick myself for not bringing a camera! I had hoped to meet you too, but waited and no one else showed up, so I went into the show for the 10:00 seminar. I had also hoped to be able to meet Ray on Sunday, but I got blown out by all the people at the show and had to bolt for home in Sunshine on Saturday afternoon. I'm just not cut out for big crowds... I've always been a little clostrophobic around them. Thus the reason I came to Talkeetna in 1973. Hope we can get a chance to meet this summer.

Nice pics Stouff. It was good to meet everyone. Hopefully, (Patrick willing) I will be able to get over there in time to meet AK Ray tomorrow. Getting him out the door is sometimes a little tough.

Jesse, I look forward to hearing about your boat project. Keep us up to date on how it goes and post a picture or two as you get it rolling. I hope you and your brother are able to get up to the Minto Flats area this fall. If you do, let us know how the birds are.

It will be nice to be able to put a face with a name from now on. Hopefully we will be able to meet up again. I'm looking forward to maybe trying to work in a hunt or two with some of you this fall. We'll just have to see how things (and kids) work out.

HAHHA

Boondocks is a GREAT store. Its my favorite gun store, they know me by name :salude:

And as far as the safes... I dont know what you had in mind as far as size, but the BEST deal I have seen in a long time was frum Sams Club. They have a up to 24 gun safe, 1200F for 30 min Fire lining, and weighs about 550 pounds. for $611

They said they had like 8 at their store, but would be gittn about 11 today, and put them out on Monday. I think they will sell fast. Might be werth lookin into :thumbsup:

AK Ray - Sorry I wasn't able to get there early this morning. I didn't actually make 'til 11:30.

LA - It's too bad I didn't check in this morning before I went or I'd have called you. Good to hear about the boat. The safe you two are talking about is the same one that I decided on after looking at everything there. I have seen it at the S. Anchorage store all winter but had really wanted to see what everyone else was going to bring out before I made my mind up. You are right on about Stouff needing to update his avator. I felt like a midget when I was standing next to him and his buddy.

Well it has a electronic combo and hold 24 guns without the side shelves or 12 with them in but if you don't have that much crap to put on the shelves it has a top shelve. It just like the one you saw at the show.

It not the height of the truck it getin a 500 pound safe off the truck and on the ground without kill myself, so I think i'll be better off with a trailor and my fourwheelr ramps or two by twelves.

Postby AK Ray » Mon Apr 10, 2006 11:07 am

but not for too long or else I would have had to buy an ATV for the little girl. She really wants one now. I am doomed. First she has to learn to ride her bike - thats the deal.

Jesse, the crowds are why I go on sunday morning. The church goers don't show up till noon or later.

LA, you bought a boat from Boondocks? It wasn't one of those "blow up doll" boats was it? I guess you won't be wanting to buy my foamer then if I sell it.

Stouff, good job on the trout pond. That is a first class bunch of welding. I like the dark tank liner, it makes it harder to see the fish and the fish appear to be less freaked out. Saw a 4yo boy chatch one of the big char.

Why what wrong with them? What price would the foamer be I might just be interested, diffentally if its around the same price as the "blow-up doll".

Hey Stouff,
I have my whole duck hunting set up for sale and also another 27hp Pro Drive.

it is a 16/48 Lowe with a 27hp Pro Drive with trailer, boat blind everything goes with this set up for $6500.00 the other motor $3300 it will operate best on a 16 foot skiff.

I was planning on having a little Mud Fest this spring up at Jim Creek, Mud lake where everybody could come out and drive them and also maybe a cook out and if we get quite a few of us maybe a little Poker Run set up.

Yes I watch this board all the time and also the fuge one.
if anybody would be interested keep this post going and let us see if we can plan this get together. :getdown:

LA, I have never liked blow up boats that were not high quality rafts or pontoon rigs. The one stearns inflatable boat I have been in was too soft feeling to me and hard to paddle since it sunk down with me in it. It might work OK for you since you're so skinny. The good thing about the stearns boat is that you can put into a box and take it anywhere with you.

The foamer price is going to be $300, which is less than the materials cost and does not include my labor. I am not a pro builder so the labor is not important for me to recover.

Try both boats out this spring before you go to the sand. I live just a little ways from you in Muldoon, but I no longer can get on base since my job change this winter.

akduse - welcome - you should start a new topic for the mudfest. Looking forward to seeing your new Phatboy. No takers yet on the boat? My buddy is more than likely not going to go for the other one you mentioned. He is a former guide from MT and has had some near death experiences that keep him out of smaller boats. Some one here may be interrested in your friends boat.

Duse i hadn't planned on spending that much on a rig but thanks anyhow.

Ray, let me know where you live or let meet somewhere so i can take a look at the foamer, that close to the price of the inflatable and i can't even look at it until the 13th. Oh i'm not that skinny, it just that mamouth on my right that throughs things off. :laughing:
