Many people have asked me what is next? I have broken a world record for birding, been there, done that….Did I go to Disney World…?, what did I do?…so next on my to-do list…well not exactly ..but I decided to go fishing and try to catch yet one more larger than 40 inch pike. It seemed this was something I could work on for a while, take my time, do it right, catch a monster.
It took me exactly 7 days from the end of my birding project. I went to Ontario and landed this truly massive, 45 inch 28 lb pike, a real brute.
If you can believe, this is not my largest pike. October 3, 1992, I caught one over 30 lbs but this is a lifetime fish and I will never catch another this large.
This is my ninth bigger than 41 inch pike and now I am a contented fisherman again…with nothing to do. Bucket list done.
Some people stay still and wait for the end of the life, and I am the opposite, I keep moving hoping the Devil wont catch me, now, I am like a ship in the doldrums, directionless….so what is next?
I am working on my next project but that will take a few years…some of the more sensitive of you may not approve so I am keeping it tight to the vest until it happens but it is not a short term goal, so what is next?
Do I climb the highest mountain, swim with sharks, or sky dive?
Do I wrestle bears or put on a rainbow wig and a John 3:16 shirt and crash a sporting event?
Well first off, I have to take twins to College…..then….I don’t know, looking for ideas, please include them here, Olaf is in a holding pattern looking for direction.
Stay moving my friends…
