    Our wedding anniversay is Nov 14, so DW an I took what was likely our last trip of 2019 this past weekend to celebrate a little early.

    We got lucky on the weather. Forecast was for 40s on Friday, low 60s on Saturday and low 50s on Sunday. When we arrived on Thursday night, it was 28. But the rest of the weekend was glorious -- 50-something on Friday, close to 70 on Saturday and mid 60s Sunday.

    Didn't do much other than hang out and enjoy. Haven't done a lot of fishing this year, but managed to catch about 30 nice crappie this trip.

    ON Sunday did the dreaded winterize thing before buttoning things up for season. 20191109_172542_001.jpg 20191109_172832.jpg

    Sounds like y'all had a great trip. Hard to be Crappie (we call them Speckled Perch in Fl)
    BTW my BDay is also 11/14. Glad you had a good trip and sad to hear you are putting it away for the winter. Luckily we do not have to do that here in Fl. However you can spend the time planning on next year camping.

    What a great way to celebrate than taking a camping trip. A water view to boot you can't ask for much more.

    Camping and hiking season is just ramping up at last in FL. Not sorry to see the heat go. I really enjoy reading about people's summer trips here.

    And those of us "up north" live vicariously through all of you below the Mason Dixon line all winter.
