Are you ever alone when Darla is with you?

Stay inside and work? Work on projects around the house? Sit and stare out the window at the birdhouses? Ya.. sure. Okay, I will  work, lots of meetings, but there is some time on the old calendar for what we are all here for. Woody Boating. Stinky has been patently waiting since the entire Lake Dora thing to go. I mean GO! And that is what I am going to try and do. I will disinfect her what ever. She is old, over 80, so I want to make sure she is protected.

Alone – Miss Lisa

So no parties on the water, no sitting around with friends, no groups of pals on the boat, wait.. This is not starting to sound like that much fun. I mean the best part of WoodyBoating is the social part. Sure a nice blast of flathead exhaust is great. But after a short while, its just that. No conversations, laughter, and visiting others.

None of this

I am so conflicted? Is it worth all the trouble in getting the boat in the water, dealing with all the little issues?

Artist Rendering.

HELL YES! Bite Me! I am gonna go out there Naked, all lathered up in bacon fat, and floor it. I am gonna go deaf listening to that un muffled exhaust and get high on oil fumes.. And LOVE IT! AHHHHH, I feel better just writing this.. I might put on some underwear. Maybe the sweat pants I have been wearing for a month.. Ya.. NOPE.. I am going all fresco! Watch out ladies. And well anyone with good eyesight. One thing is for sure, social distancing will not be a problem.

I have read the book, so I know the rules

All thats missing is some bacon.

    You forgot family, Matt. And dogs. You don’t need to go alone.

    I loved this photo and backstory of Instagram. Congrats. Pandemic love is great!

    Sometimes alone is OK!

    Clear your head from all the crazy noise.

      I’d bet that Troy isn’t wearing pants in that pict……or maybe even now.

        Don’t let everyone know my secrets!
        Remember what happens in Tavares stays in Tavares.

    Raining this morning, but beautiful day yesterday, and splashed Water Lily. First mate and I took a long first ride of the season (with clothing). Best way I know to social distance. Woohoo!

      Greg Good for you you were able to go out!
      I thought your Govener said no moter boating in the State?
      I heard my brother was putting his boat in yesterday also.
      Look for him on the lake!
      Missed you guys at Lake Dora! It was beautiful there!
      GarWood ran great!
      I think I will make the trip again next year. Hope they have a show in 2021.

        Hi Dave. We are still hoping to do a Port Huron show in September if this virus settles down. Keep Sept. 11-12 open on your calendar.

    Some of us can’t get to our boats.
    Ginger is locked up in Sierra Boat sheltering in place.
    Tahoe is locked up too.

  6. Mark in Ohio (sometimes da U P )

    Boating by yourself. It can be soul serching. Like you always say Matt. Get Out There!!

    I love everything you do here, and while I don’t get to read every day, when I do click on it I ussually go back and read the 3-4 for that I missed. Would it be possible to add the header photo into the daily posting somewhere, so that I can see what the comments are referring to?
    Thanks for being here, and stay safe!

  8. Matt

    Thats a great idea Steve, I will. Sorry. Kinda dumb of me. I often have thought of making the header link to the story so if you click on the story, that header apears.

    I rely on you to give me a good mate in Stinky. She wasn’t there the last time I looked. Hope to get Natalie in this weekend.
