Fellow Woody Boaters John Baas and Wil Vidal were driving home from a ACBS meeting the other day and noticed a little something peeking through an open door in an abandoned home. This is what love about this passion. They are still out there, it doesn’t need to be a Camaro or Corvette in a barn, any old woody will do. The fun part is taking the roads less traveled. That’s were the goodies are for sure. Tucked away between old Dairy Queens and vegetable stands waiting for us to find them. How many people passed this boat over the years or worse took the interstates, eat at MCDonalds and miss real life on the way to another mall or vinyl sided housing complex in there mini vans. This passion is special for that reason, its not for everyone. Yet, cool, and full of fun and adventures. Boating is a huge deal in the US, yet classic boating is almost invisible in comparison. Thats the magic. A fun passion, with very cool stuff that very few have but all appreciate. We are very lucky indeed that this stuff is still out there. Get out there, go visit lost water ways, family owned diners and marinas owned by bitter old men. that’s the life for me. Thanks John and Wil for reminding us that the journey is sometimes mire fun than the destination.
